Ask DocSk8 (Expert Indoor Skate Building Advice) This forum is different then the other SkateLog forums in that it is not a discussion forum, but rather a place you can ask skate building expert Fred "DocSk8" Benjamin about building and repairing indoor speed, derby, and jamskate quad roller skates.

Default Custom skate build idea

How hard would it be to mount skate plates to a pair of jungle combat boot's?
Has anyone tried this? Those boots do have an anti spike plate in the sole, not sure of the material it is made from.

Define hard....

Has anyone tried this?

Tried?? I have succeeded more than once.

How old are the ones you have?? If I recall correctly they were metal back in the Vietnam era but became a Kevlar composite in the 80s... (Don't quote me. I'm going from memory... I was on active duty from 1970 to 1992.)Tanker boots work better. Way too much space between the lugs on the soles of the jungle boots. Big PITA.

Of course they would be a new pair. Jungle boots where so much more comy and airy than my jump boots where plus less to spit shine

Cool i was in too 86-92 101st yeah got my eagles in stero too. Kinda why i asked cause i put alot of miles on my jungles back in the day.

Thinking about usein these plates.
