I am pleased to announce that Jessica has agreed to establish and host a brand new skating forum, configured like the SkateLog Forum, but with a new name and a new Web Site. This new forum is 100% owned and operated by Jessica.

For the price, the Alphas can't be beat. If you tell me your size I can give you a few suggestions. or just go here http://secure.rollerwarehouse.com/orstore/default.aspx they are my favorite place to shop online, everyone there is a skater and can most likely help you with most of your questions, they have a forum if you cant get the answer you were looking for or just dont want to call.

Wink My thoughts

Rollerblade are a great make they are smoth to skate and they are light too. My whole skate team skate them because of this. I have a pair of TRS alpha 6. the best thing about the rollerblade range is that they are not ugly like some other skate makes.

It also always makes sense to check pages like www.rollerwarehouse.com and www.skatepile.com for their NOS and closeout models. It never hurts to get a well-made skate, even if you're just starting, and some of the prices beat those of newer, beginner series skates.

I'm an 11 and bought these in 11.5, the fit was just about right. Of course, they had the whole skate at the time... you would need to buy frame and wheels... and may want to call about availability as they are listed "due" in one day...

I have a wide foot and tried the TRS downtown and was in agony after the first day.

I make my suggestion assuming you are looking for great and cheap. there are alot that are great and expensive, and at that point, I think it is really a matter of "Fit" and "Preference".

The Salomons have proven very durable as I slide down stairs and accross parkinglots/sidewalks quite frequently.
