The K2 Alexis Pro 84 inline skates offer great performance and comfort for those looking for a fitness skate to take their skating to the next level. Great for taking on some light training or for skating up to the local ice cream shop, the Alexis Pro 84 is great for many skaters.
From head to toe the K2 Alexis Pro 84 women's inline skates have it figured out. When you initially slide on the Alexis Pro 84's you will be hit with some softness and support thanks to the K2 Softboot Design and stability plus cuff. This mix gives you immense comfort from the Softboot and the ability to push off with great control thanks to the hard plastic stability cuff. Also, to ensure that your new skates don't get stinky there is an antimicrobial footbed included in the skate. Underneath the comfortable boot you have the 84mm wheels paired with the ILQ-5 bearings which will roll smooth and easy even over slight imperfections in the skating surface. The 84mm wheels are large enough to roll smooth over rough patches but aren't so big that you will feel out of control. To make sure you get the most out of each stride the K2 Alexis Pro 84 comes with the D.C. aluminum frame that works to offer a great power transfer so you can get your monies worth out of each stride.
As you can see the K2 Alexis Pro 84 has a lot going for it including comfort, performance and ease of use. Whether you're looking for a skate to take your fitness to the next level or looking for a skate to get around the neighborhood, the K2 Alexis Pro 84 is right for you.

Okay, so first off, I'm a guy. I bought these because it was one of the very few skates that appealed to me (I love the color scheme).
SIZE: I wear "New Balance" and "Asics" Running Shoes and are both size 10 Mens, they fit "Semi-Snug" so that I can tighten or loosen them depending on the situation of use.
I bought these skates in size 10 as well, and I would say that they fit "Snug".
USE: I've skated for a total of 3 hours with these so far. First, at an Indoor Skating Rink for 2.5 hours. Then, Outside on the Streets for 0.5 hours. Both areas ran nicely.
PAIN: As soon as I go to tighten the Left skate, my Inner Ankle experiences moderate pain. The pain doesn't last more than a few minutes though, because as soon as I get to skating the pain seems to disappear.
DESIGN/ERGONOMICS: Inside of the boot, there is a type of "Clasping" going on just above the back of the Heel where the Achilles Tendon attaches but bellow the Ankle Bones. It's a very nice anatomical fit that really serves for a comfortable feel.
The Stability Cuff performs nicely for allowing your Knee to move over, and in front of the Toe. Ankle Inversion and Eversion mobility is at a bare minimum (by design) unless you choose to loosen the Buckle. The Cuff fights against you if you want to stand straight up... Doing so requires a lot of force and in turn, constricts the Cuff causing a noticeable amount of pain on the Inner Ankles (this was more so with my Left skate).
The Velcro Strap is very effective at tightening the Soft Boot around your Ankle and Foot. However, Velcro does not last very long with regular use. A simple metal Roller Buckle with a thicker strap would prove more reliable for long term use.
OVERALL: The entirety of the skates are very nice. They roll smoothly and have nice ventilation, they don't feel as if they're going to break under a lot of use, and the general design just looks great. Really looking forward to these being broken in.
I love these skates but they do not love me. They continue to rub the inside of both ankles to the point where I am going to have to send them back. I have tried different types of socks, adjusting the tongue, adjusting all straps but there is no relief. I'm really bummed about this because they're really cute and fun but super uncomfortable.
