Default Question

So if one can do tons of “tricks” an such an thus skates fairly hard when they do skate BUT doesnt have the opportunity to skate that often (say a few times a year at most). In general speculation, how long could said individuals cheapest of the cheap boots hold up???

If it matters, heres the setup
Original old probe plates from Carreras (all new hardware)
Bones redz bearings (new)
V-drive wheels (new)
Probe trucks (new)
Cheapest of the cheap boots (viper m4’s or whatever) salvaged from them shipping my wife the wrong size and refunding us but said keep them lol.

I would be saying about a year for the boots themselves. The rest should last pretty well.

Pretty hard to say how long anything will last. Especially without being able to examine the item.

I can say if you are over 175# the Probe plates are flexible enough they are doing "tricks" all on their own.

Common wisdom is anything but...

Most leather boots should last a lifetime...
Plastic or hybrid not so much.
Soft cushions and properly setup plates also should last a life time.
Wheels Scott's wheels last for ever.
New U.S.A wheels generally last 6 months.
You can throw all this out the window for jumps and derby.
