Today, we continue the Getting Started Roller Skating Series with part 4. In this episode, I give you 10 quad roller skates, rollerblades and inline skates recommendations for the beginner skater (or for those of you returning to skating after a long time away). So, if you don’t have skates and need a pair, then this episode is for you.
In today’s episode, I cover:
- 3 low-cut boot quad skates
- 3 hightop boot quad skates
- 2 rollerblades
- Roller Derby AERIO Q-60
- Bladerunner Advantage Pro XT – one of my top rollerblades for beginners picks.
- 2 aggressive inline skates (for those of you out there who are extra adventurous)
- VNLA Carbon inline skates
- Luigino Pro inline skates
Details about all of the skates that I discussed in today’s show can be found in my article The 10 Best Roller Skates for Beginners. In that article, I breakdown each of the above skates in more detail (I actually own 9 of the 10 skates). You can also find photos and soon separate articles on each skate. For now, I have a roundup summary of each one.
