To start out, do not get scared, many people see the term “speed skate” and think, “oh no I’m not going to be competing I don’t want those, they will go to fast!” Do not worry, speed skate is just the common term for the low cut quad roller skates. Here are four reasons speed skates are the right roller skates for you!
- Comfort – odds are the shoes you wear when doing athletic things, are low cut. They are a regular height sneaker. Most would never think to use a high boot type shoe for athletic endeavors. That means you are more comfortable, more used to, the feeling of a low cut boot. It makes sense to look for the same in your roller skates!
- Options – have you seen how many different color combinations and styles there are? You can stay under $200 dollars and have ombre fade, black leather and red denim with a lace cover, polka dots, zebra stripes, flames, light up or rainbow! There are so many options. Seriously…makes my head spin sometimes.
- Ease of use – this also goes back to point 1, what you are used to. Sometimes getting the tightness just right on a tall boot can be tough, I know I struggle with that every time I go ice skating. (though I did finally invest in a tightener) With the low cut skates it is so much easier, it has the feel of a sneaker. I especially love the skates with the Velcro power strap. Makes it a breeze getting in and out of your skates with the perfect fit.
- Stability – compared to an inline skate, these are so much easier to learn for most people! It gives you a firm base to balance on, not saying it is super easy to learn, but can make a much easier study than an inline. Speed skates are a much better choice than inline skates if you have weak ankles especially.
