Rollerblades have definitely progressed technologically. Today, you can get a lot more for your money and a product of higher quality.
First impression: The aeroblades are easy to put on and take off. I was expecting the ABEC-7 bearings to be faster but they were comparable to my ABEC-5 bearings in my Solomon inline skates. I expect that these bearings need to be worn in a bit. There are so many gadgets on these skates...How do I use them?
Comfort: The lining form-fits to your foot but this does not compare to the memory foam of the original Rollerblade macroblade. Coolmax technologies keep your foot cool. The lightweight yet durable material keep your feet from tiring.
Buckles, Ties and Closure: The advancements made on the closure system are a great improvement from previous rollerblades. A dental floss like shoe string is easily tightened with the pull of a handle. This gives your foot optimal support as you fly across the skating rink.
Bottomline: I would recommend these skates to anyone starting out or someone
that is looking for a fun way to exercise outdoors. These skates are decent
for indoor skating but have a longer base then most indoor skates which
makes it harder to turn unless you are racing, in which case the length
comes in handy. The retail price of these skates is a bargain considering
its components and configuration.
