Outdoor Roller Skates

Outdoor roller skates, also known as sidewalk skates, have been popular since the 1970s.  Urethane formulas became available that would enhance the outdoor roller skating experience because these new outdoor roller skate wheels could grip the pavement. With a grippy outdoor roller skate wheel, the skater had more control and could skate faster. Outdoor roller skating also faces more hazards on the pavement - small rocks, cracks, twigs - all the little stuff on the sidewalk can stop roller skate wheels.  But larger, grippy urethane outdoor roller skate wheels can glide over these imperfections with ease.  Roller skate wheels in the 65mm wheel size have a longer glide and can overcome sidewalk imperfections more easily. 62mm roller skate wheels are lighter, and lower to the ground for better balance and more manueverabiliy.  There are 57mm outdoor roller skate wheels also.  Typically, an outdoor roller skate is exactly the same as an indoor rink skate, but on the sidewalks or boardwalks a roller skater can use a boot that is softer.  Soft roller skate boots include all the suede boots and the Riedell 172 OG, a soft leather, fully leather lined boot with a shearling wool tongue.  Outdoor roller skates take more abuse than indoor rink skates and many roller skaters choose to have us mount their sport shoes for outdoor use.  Click the following link for some examples of the skates we have mounted.    CUSTOM MOUNTED SNEAKER SKATES
