Q: What skates do you sell for beginners?
A: We have many options for beginner level skaters, starting from hk$680. Some beginners prefer the cheapest option to get started, while others are ready to commit and decide to invest in a skate that will last them years. Impala, Chaya, Playlife are among brands we carry with excellent entry level choices.
Q: How do I find my skate size?
A: Every brand (and in the case of brands like Chaya, every model) has their own sizing guide. It is not sufficient to choose a shoe size US/EU/UK that you are used to wearing. MEASURE YOUR FOOT IN CM to find the most accurate sizing.
SOME SKATERS PREFER a snug fit, while some prefer to size up for comfort. Chaya, for example, sizes their boots very snugly, and each model has a different size chart to follow.
Q: What sizes do you offer?
A: In store, we carry sizes 31-46 European. Not every skate comes in all sizes.
Q: Inlines vs quads vs ice skates?
A: Fundamentals of balance and footwork do cross over from one discipline to the other, but at the same time, it does feel different skating on quads. The COOLEST thing about riding quads is the variety of skating we get up to, including: roller derby, aggressive skating, skatepark, jam (dance) skating, and street skating. There's a renaissance happening around the world on roller skates!
Q: I want to skate outdoors, what should I buy?
A: It's all about the wheels! The lower the durometer/hardness, the softer the wheel, the smoother the ride. 78a, 80a, 85a are all good for outdoors. 90a-103a durometer not recommended for street skating.
