I'm a quad vert skater, but I hang out with aggressive inline skaters here in Austin, Tx.. To be honest, I never hear anyone say anything about Rollerblades.

Often, I hear discussions about the following :
Razors, Remz, Valo, Deshi, Roces. Nimh, Xsjado, and USD.
My impression has always been that Remz lead the pack, while Rolerblade brings up the rear. Though, I have heard that they have been improving.

Good luck buying skates! Maybe some of the other mooks here can give you better advice.

Thanks a lot for your advise. I'm holding my urge to do a quick purchase. Considering Valo tv2 and Razor yuri (from gen 7.2). Any take on that ?

I would choose the Razors, but that is more of a personal preference.

Thanks for your opinion, I'll stick to razor. Cus I tried wearing valo And there is squeeze at the side and top of the toe, and I'm flat foot with broad feet. So... Wasn't too keen to spend tat much with something so uncertain. No doubt the nice design :x

It's personal preference btw the Razors and Valos but if the Valos fit well aside from the toe box and you like them you could always toe-cut them. Basically you cut off the top of the toe box to give your feet a little more room. It works and is pretty easy to do. I toe-cut mine and now they fit well now.

I have Valos and Genesys.... whatever you want to know about either, just ask.

Yo!

I'm located in singapore and I saw toe cutting video. I don't hv the tool to do toe cutting and also I don't wish to buy the tool and cut just once and leave it there. It will be waste of money. Any other way? I went to try valo out. Few problem. One is some stuff on top of your feet that is pressing down. I try for a min and it's a little discomfort. And issuer is a little arch in the boots. It has nthg to do with the liner. I'm flat foot as mentioned, so I guess into long run my feet would hurt. And probably spoil my first experience for aggro skating

Pls advise

Just get the nicest pair of razor genesys skates that you can afford and ride a 4 down setup. You'll love them. Find them with the Jug liners and you'll be good to go.

The new rollerblade fit wide but very narrow in the toe box, not good if you have skinny and long feet.
If you have skinny and long feet, get Valo's. You can cut the toes out of the plastic shell (Valo's are a plastic shell with a leather skin over them).

I saw Rob G skating his last night. The RB's have nice true to size fit. Some are noticing the bottom of the boot becomes flexy after a while.
