lolramen wrote:So let me explain my situation to you. I'm looking for a pair of skates, and I have no idea where to begin, and this seemed like a good place to ask for advice. I recently quit roller hockey, but I enjoy skating too much to just totally abandon it. I would like something that i can just take around the block for a quick run, and something that is good pretty good for downhill, so that when my friends go longboarding, I can keep up. Also, since I'm coming from hockey, these insanely low-cut boots seem like they would be very hard to balance on, but I wouldn't know from personal experience. Lastly, price is quite a concern of myne, since most of my spending money is funneled into my other hobby, R/C helis. NOW, what is your personal opinion on what I should get?

I'm also looking for 90-100 size wheels. Lastly I'd like to keep the price below $300, if at all possible (could be swinging a little low on that). After roaming the internet for a few days, I think I've found something that fits the bill. K2 Radical 100's seem to be about what I think I'm looking for. They have the large wheels I'm looking for, the ankle support, and I'm finding them for $230 on the internet. Thoughts?
