 Overview
 

The K2 Midtown urban inline skates are simply a fun pair of inline skates, and they feature some really cool designs too. Choose blue or gray before you take off and skate through the crowds of the busy city streets on these easy to control and fun to be in skates.

The boot of the K2 Midtown urban skates look more like a fashionable pair of sneakers than they do an awesome pair of inline skates. It's this style that's going to fit in within any urban setting, but what really fits in is the design of the Midtown. With 80mm wheels and an Abec 5 bearing you get a great mixture of control and speed, but not too much speed making these safe and effective skates for getting around on a busy sidewalk. The 80mm wheel size is big enough to easily go over imperfections in the sidewalk but won't spin so fast to get out of control. To ensure you have all the support needed K2 used their aggressive skate cuff on the Midtown so a lengthy skate doesn't turn into sore feet for the rest of the day. Giving you a nice sense of closure are traditional laces matched with a double Velcro closure so you can choose your level of snugness.

The K2 Midtown is not the skate for someone looking to break any land speed records but are great for the urban city skater looking to get from point a to b in a fun and safe manner, even if there are obstacles to avoid along the way. The K2 Midtown is here to bring the fun back to inline skating!


  • K2 inline skates are going to fit the same as your everyday athletic shoe size.

Good... not great.
Comments:
Had these for two months and they have been alright. The insole is very comfortable, however, I personally had issues with the inside of the boot near the ankle bones. It's fine for a couple hours of skating, but the more time you put into it, it will dig into the side of your ankles like nothing else. Very painful. My friends who are the same size as me agree that if they were to spend hours and hours in them, they would also prefer a slightly softer liner too. Yes, this is even after dozens of hours of skating time. It's not a deal-breaker, but the boot could definitely have been more ergonomically designed. The old Fatty Pro softboot was much better by comparison. I love the frames. I've used the flat setup in the skate park a bit (actually learned how to drop in on these) and the rockered setup for flatland/freestyle stuff. Toe spins are incredible on these because of the wheel size. A little heavy for some of the more agressive-oriented stuff.. maybe. I'd honestly order a half size down in these if I could again because the toes are a tad long... all in all, not a bad skate at all, but definitely could use some reconsidering from K2. All in all, good! But not great.

All around great skate
Comments:
This is by far the best skate I've bought so far. Insole is comfortable enough to not require any additional support, and I've gotten many compliments on the design of the boot. Does very well for how I use it and how frequently I use it.

Q: The boot on the skate looks like it would feel comfortable for someone with a wide foot. I usually have to watch what skates I buy because of my wide feet. Does anyone have wide feet feel comfortable in these skates?
Asked : Feb 13, 2017

A:Although no inline skate company currently makes a wide skate, this K2 is going to offer a more forgiving fit than most. Since this is built on a glorified aggressive skate boot from K2 you really get more of a comfortable skate style shoe fit than a fitness inline skate. You will need to skate in them a few times to really break them in and they should fit around your foot well after about a half dozen times skating.

Q: Is there much difference between size 8.5 and 9.0 ? I usually wear size 42 eur shoes.
Asked : Feb 09, 2017
By : Dave, NY
Know the answer? Answer this question
 
A:These skates fit very close to standard shoe size, with a 42 you fall into a size 8.5 which should be accurate for you. If you've ever worn shoes sized in US sizing, I would go with whatever size you take in those since these skates are sized in US sizing.

Q: Can women use these skates as well, because I see that it's fit for men?
Asked : Sep 29, 2016
By : M, Sacramento, CA
Know the answer? Answer this question
 
A:Heck yes, these skates don't care about gender. They are sized in men's shoe size so you will want to drop a full size from your everyday women's shoe size. Depending on the shape of your foot you may need to add an aftermarket footbed or support but that has nothing with being a woman, many men, including myself, have to alter their skates for a precise and correct fit.

Q: Because it has the UFS on it, is it possible to put an aggressive frame on this skate? I don't skate hard aggressive, but I really enjoy the control that a low frame and wheels provide.
Asked : Jun 07, 2016
By : B, Modesto, CA
Know the answer? Answer this question
 
A:Yes, you can swap out the frame with any UFS aggressive frame.
