    Default Your Opinion Re: Inline Skates

    Please view the link below and give me your opinion on what is the best deal. Tanner (my son-16yrs old) will be using the skates primarily for street/park pick-up games. Looking for comfort too.

    Price range - Under $150.00

    As a dad for Xmas I would go with these (disclaimer buy these only if you have excessive disposable income)

    I own a pair of Mission inlines (i don't remember which model right now) but i'm very pleased with them. I have also heard that Nike has some great skates too. The two I like so far are the Mission Wicked 7 and Nike Bauer XVR; both are $130.

    how old is your son? If your son is say, 10 years old or less, why not just get recreation rollerblades? they are lighter, easier to put on, and in many cases come with better bearings for just pure speed. They'll prolly be a bit cheaper too...just be sure to get rid of the stoppers...

    At the younger ages I don't think kids really need the durability/stiffness that come from roller hockey skates. but thats just my 2 cents!

    He is 16 yrs. old and been skating for years now. He just wore out a cheap pair of Mission M5 I believe.

    at 16 definitely want the hockey skates...just get something that fits well and is relatively light. my knock on roller hockey skates is that they are wayyyy too heavy.

    I would not buy a $500.00 pair of skates for him to tear up on the street, or at the local park, even if I did have an excessive disposable income! Thanks for the suggestion though.....

    Street pickup tears up skates and these are super durable for outdoor play. The toe cap is really durable. I use the Mega 50s for outdoor play. The price is unbeatable and a good all around skate:

    For indoor play, I'd do with these (keeping it under $150). My Bauer Vapor ice skates are really comfortable and I'm thinking these are probably just as comfortable being an inline skate:

    I have both ice and inline Vapors and can vouch that for me they are very comfy skates that perform well enough to get me around a rink.
