This new forum is 100% owned and operated by Jessica.

Thumbs up Approved!

Looks good from here. Should be a nice skate and not cost a lot of money.

I haven't seen one of the new Vanilla boots yet, but if it's anything at all like it's big sister, it should be fine. It actually looks like a revamp of the Vanilla Classic.

The Invader is an awesome performer, especially for no more than it costs. Make sure you get the correct size for your foot. (Think shorter than the chart says.) The black Power Plus are really soft and grippy. Trade the Reds for some Qube 8-balls.

Most importantly, however, get a competent skate builder to build them for you. There are a few on the forum. They'll do a better job and most likely save you some money.

got to check out the boots at camp who bad and they look pretty solid. I wouldn't skate on them because I like lace covers, but they look like a good boot for the price

the only con I heard was that it had a narrow toebox, but that was on a prototype. So i'm not sure if they fixed it for the final model....?

the main reason i like them is because it doesnt have the lace covers

i definitely need a good builder! i totally wish there was somewhere within a reasonable driving distance where i can go try boots on -
anyone know of a place within a few hours drive from new orleans??

is this coming as a package pre-built from the company? or are you buying the components and then having them mounted/mounting yourself? if it is the latter why not wait a little while for the Avenger plate. the price point is just barely over that of the invader, and looks so pretty too.

Those look pretty cool! If weight is an issue, keep in mind those boots weigh a ton! If not, you should be good to go... the quality you will get for the price is unbeatable.

yeah weight really isnt an issue - i just skate for fun - actually the extra weight might help strengthen my legs

i plan to get them built for me - im a newbie thats been skating for fun for 20 years and its time to replace the old clankers...

im gonna wait till mid october when the boot comes out - i saw those plates, theyre nice, when are they available?
