Not sure what style to choose? That is usually the first question, do you want a high top or low top skate? But if you are not sure, how do you choose? Here are the top three reasons to choose a high top roller skate.
- Style – if you are looking for that nostalgic look of when roller skating first became popular (think 1970’s bell bottoms / short shorts and boot style roller skates) then you will want to choose a high top roller skate aka boot skate.
- Support – skating make you nervous about protecting your ankles? Never fear, ankle support is here! But keep in mind, lower costing high top skates won’t have tons of support, if you need the support needed for jumps and other advanced moves make sure you are looking at the more supportive boots like the Riedell 220.
- Options – there are so many great color options available now in the high top skates, want one with Leopard Print? We have the Moxi Ivy skates! Want bright suede colors? We have the Sure Grip Boardwalk or Candi Girl Carlin!
