Hi everyone,

I bought new skates, but I went with inlines after all, instead of quads. I had a chance to try some K2's and they felt so much better than my old RB's, that I decided to give inlines another try. They are K2 Alexis.

I feel more surefooted in these, more in control. The boot shape encourages me to keep my legs bent, which is good. I tend to want to stand straight as my legs tire. Only pain I've had is one little raw spot on my leg where the cuff rubbed me wrong. Which seems to happen when I stand too straight and flick my toe when pushing.

Thanks to everyone who gave me feedback on skates and such! :) :) :)

Congratulations!

It is great to get some skates that work for you and feel good. My first skate with the new RB 05s and hockey wheels felt really good, too. Hopefully, you can get us a picture in the "Show Us Your Skates Thread".
