Is It Time to Replace Your Roller-Skates?

If you’re a lifelong skater, you’ve probably long since invested in your own pair of skates. After all, buying roller-skates means a custom fit, fun anytime, and big savings on skate rentals. But even the most well-maintained roller-skates need replacing eventually. If your trusty roller-skates are looking a bit worn, it’s time ask yourself these questions.

Is It Time to Replace My Skates?

  1. toddler wearing high heelsDo they fit? This is usually a problem for growing kids, but adult feet sometimes change size too. Don’t worry, nobody knows but you! But it’s probably time to replace those roller-skates.
  2. Are they worn out? If you love your skates well, they’ll last for years. But after awhile, you may notice the boot losing its shape or the lining wearing thin. Some signs of aging (like old bearings, for example) are fixed with a quick trip to the Pro Shop. Others require a new pair of skates.
  3. Have I moved on? If you’ve mastered speed skating, jam skating, or just feel better gliding around the rink, it’s probably time to move on from beginner skates. Find a pair that suits your skating style.
