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. Please start a new thread for each new question.

Default any favorite boots?

Can you suggest any favorite boots? I like the looks of a lace up boot, like the Riedell 595, don't really care for the covered front like the vanilla boots. I have saved up for a new pair of skates with a roll line plate, and would like to have them made your way, but I haven't settled on a boot, any suggestions? the best looking one I have seen so far is Aussiescott's boer in his avitar. what do you like?

Default My current favorite....

is still the 375 (blue),6 (white) and 7 (black) series Labedas....which like the magic Oberhamer 351in no longer made.

I am taking a fancy to my lace-less Bont Quad Black Widow and am looking to mount my Carbon Quad Racer real soon.... (I have just bored two 1/4" holes in my Giottos...one toward the front and one toward the back so you might get an idea of how I'm going to mount them from that...)

Another option is a special or premium build Riedell 122 with a softer leather.... I'm real happy with mine...

BTW AussieScott's avatar sk8s are a Bont Quad Racer boot and a Boen Special. (I'm taking a SWAG on the Boen's here based on the age of the sk8s...He may have told me at one point but I do not remember,)
