FROM SKATELOG FORUM HOST KATHIE FRY IN MARCH OF 2020:
This announcement is to let everyone know that after hosting the SkateLog Forum and its predecessors for nearly 20 years, I have decided it is time to permanently turn the forum over to a new owner and administrator. I cannot think of anyone more suitable to take on that role than my SkateLog forum co-host, Florida skater Jessica Wright. 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.

NEW FORUM NAME: SkateDebate Forum
NEW WEB SITE: SkateDebate.com
NEW OWNER AND ADMINISTRATOR: Jessica Wright

On smooth asphalt the 83a wheel is a bit faster.

This is why I say screw the skate boots for Outdoor skates. Get BETTER padded sole athletic shoes. Then you can roll with the 83A wheels and it still feels OK for foot comfort.
Don't make the wheels too responsible for your foot comfort, this narrows the options of what they can give you in other departments.

Default what size are these boots?

A-Town,

What size boot do you wear? Rather large I assume from these high weights.
