We have a new skating arena which has just opened in our town and I would love to skate again (not done it since 1985!) I obviously have no clue about skates these days, so was wondering if anyone could recommend some. I like the retro looking kind (not blades!)
I recieved a pair of these white faux leather ones for Christmas which looked the part but I found it easier to skate in these so have put the others on ebay. DD1 really loves her white ones though, I think it's personal preference.
Speaking as a skater, Rio Rollers and their counterparts are god awful! Search for second hand Riedell, Antik, Sure Grip or Moxie skates on eBay. Stiff ankle support is not strictly required for anyone over toddler age. I have seen high ankle skates result in more broken legs!
