So yea, i just picked up skating a few weeks ago. bought a pair of old k2 fatty's from a guy for 30 bucks. Things went well till today. landed my first three sixty and after i land my left boot feels weird. i look down and the whole plastic ankle support and backing has cracked and my skates are useless now.

That being said, what would u guys recommend i look into getting. im really into skating and i like it alot, just bummed i wasted 60 bucks (skates and new wheels).

I got these back in the day and they're still still the best rollerblades ever made. I can't believe you can still get em!

Hey what's up man...nice meeting you at the park today. I definately wouldn't recommend like 5 year old USD's as an upgrade. I'd say go with some razors. Probably the genesys boot since they're good quality and fairly cheap. You could get them boot only if you had to since you already have wheels and I could get you some frames for free if you need some UFS ones.

man I looked for a while but I couldn't find anything at $100 or lower unless it was used on ebay. You're still more than welcome to come and take a look at the free collection after I get moved.

The ones I posted are kind of heavy, but are sooooooo comfortable. Like pillows on your feet. The souls have plenty of life left, and the frames are brand spanking new. You'd have to use your own foot pads, wheels and bearings.

Or, try some of these: (remember, the skates you destroyed are over 10 years old. Cuffs really do not break like that on newer skates)

2008 K2 Fatty Pro, boot only: $135 (I have these, the cuffs are very strong, skate is very light and supportive)

mine:



Nimh Brian Shima v. 1, boot only $139

Salomon ST Pro, bidding is at $50 right now

so for the time being im barrowing a pair of razor cults from andy for a few weeks while i figure out my skate situation. if anyone has size 10-11ish skates for sale please let me know.


and if anyone has some 8mm bearing spacers i could really use some.


thanks guys.
