I have only gone out a few times, but so far the skates are great. I mainly skate on a paved trail that goes a few miles with some random human obstacles. The skates are easy to control, and fit well on my feet and ankles.
This product is amazing! If at first you get them and they feel to big tighten the laces as much as you can and securing the velcro strap and ankle saver to the point where it feels like the skate is an extension of your foot. Then you'll be blading in no time!
I bought these skates for my 26 year old boyfriend as a present. I wanted to get back into skating as a fun way to burn some extra calories & needed someone to skate with me. He hasn't skated since he was a kid. He loved these skates & enjoys using them. At first he thought they were a little too big, but after using thicker socks the size was fine. They look great in person & I would recommend buying them!!
Great beginner skate for someone who hasn't done so since youth(been 20 years). Never really done inline before just quads at birthday parties at indoor roller rinks. I plan on getting a few lessons and improving. But most of all having fun and feeling good out there on them. Just looking at them makes me happy
Q: Are these good skates for someone with wide feet? I recently purchased a pair of Rollerblade Spark 84's for my husband, getting him a size 11, though he is a 10 or 10.5. He said they were too tight. How is the fit for the this particular skate and what size should I go with...an 11 or 12?
A: These skates are on the wider side of inline skates. However, if they were too tight in the width sizing up to a larger size will not help. When you do this the widest part of the skate moves further forward on the foot than the widest part of the foot so they continue to be too tight and are harder to control.
For a wider fit look at the Rollerblade Spark 80 or the K2 F.I.T. 84. If he has a EE width foot or wider you may want to consider the DOOP Classic, which is an inline frame that allows you to use your shoes, ensuring the width will not be an issue.
