Recreational Quad Skates

This skate style offers a high top, lace up shoe that is meant to provide extra support for people who want to exercise, roll around for fun or are just starting out. They are a ton of fun either indoor at a rink or outdoors.

Inline Skates

Also known as rollerblades, inline skates are a ton of fun and can be used for everything from speed skating, tricks, roller hockey and recreational/exercise.

Racing/Speed Skates

Just like the name implies, these skates are meant to go FAST! The shoe is usually low cut and fits snuggly with an aerodynamic shape to reduce wind resistance. They allow much more movement because of the ankle freedom they provide and are also often used for skate dancing as well as speed skating.

Roller Derby Skates

Roller Derby has been growing in popularity since the 1930s, and over the years the skates have adapted to be rugged and tough enough to handle being crashed and banged time and time again. If you’ve ever considered trying the sport, swing by our roller rink in Bradford, MA, and check it out!
