I started some 14 yrs ago on first softboots of K2 the Velocity. Loved them and skated them untill they fall apart. Have bought two K2 upgrades to the Velocities varing from some what disappoitned in V2 and very disapointed with my last years V3 buy of a K2. Started to read blogs and reviews and got interested in the Rollerblad Twister 80. First regular shoe size I ordered was to small. half size larger was perfect. Man what arevelation I almost stopped skating with my recent K2's however on the Rollerblades I totally fell in love with skating again. i am 50+ and the Rollerblades are like Rolls Royces. they fit well have right balance between sturdy support and still very manouverable. They 80 wheels very close to each other make them perfect for speed and some distance and sametime very manouverable. i love'm.
These are the most rigid, uncomfortable, PAINFUL, and unmaneuverable skates I've ever had the misfortune of wearing or owning. I recieved these from inlineskates.com recently, and I must say it's the worst purchase I've ever made in my 37 years of life. The hard rigid plastic cuts into my ankle to the point of blood staining my socks. The skates are so stiff, that maneuvering is clumsy. I've been skating since 1994, and these stiff clumsy rollerblades make me stumble around like a child just learning! Cross overs are an absolute chore in these clunky heavy boots. These Twister 80s are an impossible mess! I most probably will return these.
I decided i wanted to by skates after not skating in over 15 years, mainly to keep up with my kids on their bikes and scooters. After careful research i finally decided to spend a little more and get a decent pair of skates. These skates fit great, i wear a size 13 shoe and the size 13 fit perfectly. They look awesome, feel awesome. Fast, but not too fast. Very sturdy around ankle and lower shin, yet still comfortable. Got a free Rollerblade bag to go along with it which is nice too. Overall i am very satisfied with my purchase and the service from inlineskates.com. FYI, was "like riding a bike," haven't fallen yet!
A: The liners on the Rollerblade Twister 80 skates, as with most inline skates, will break in about a half size over time. You should still order true to our shoe size initially however or else the initial fit may not work for you.

Q: I know these come with the option to attach a brake to them. Is the brake included or does it have to be purchased separately?
