I've been researching and looking up tutorials and I'm gonna start whenever I order my shoes. This was a good video for learning the basics.
Does anybody know any stores that sell rollerskates? Most of the stores I went to are sold out:cry:.
And best believe when I finally get my shoes it's over for yall.

Before I got a bike, I used to skate all the time. This looks like fun, I may have to give this a shot, too. Skaters have the best legs, especially quads.

Gosh there is some black owned business in NC that sells roller skates but I can’t remember the name. Amazon has roller skates. I’ve been roller skating since childhood and it’s a great workout

Roller skating is in the middle of a resurgence so a lot of them are sold out. People bought up $100 -200 skates and now sell them at crazy prices on re-sell platforms. You can catch a gently used pair on ebay, mercari, or play-it-again-sports online

Depending on your size you might find a pair of Chicago Skates on Amazon. You can find them around $60. These are not the best skates though. They will not last but are ok to learn in a rink. Never skate in them outside.

Reidell makes very good skates but you're looking at $135 +. This is the brand I own. They will last forever. They take a while to break in though. They're good rink and out side skating.

Roller skates run big. Black skates are often in mens sizes while White is in womens size.

I always wanted to learn too. All my siblings can skate. I was too worried about falling and getting hurt. Lol. Now I’m much older and don’t seem to care about that which is crazy I know.

I’ve been skating for a few years now and I always say don’t be afraid to fall but remember to learn how.

Riedell is a great brand but since your a beginner it’s probably best to buy cheaper skates to make sure your really enjoy it. Some people spend up to $800 on skates but those people usually customize them and skate almost every day.

I have the Beach Bunny skates by Moxi (riedell makes them) and they are the cheapest Moxi skates. If I’m remembering correctly, softer wheels are better for outdoor skating and harder wheels for indoor so be mindful of that. These videos aren’t beginner friendly but since people already recommended some tutorials though I’d share this for inspiration.

I’m sad that I can finally afford a nice pair of skates and they are pretty much sold out. I may get the reidells but I kinda want something fun and sexy like suede or some color. All the skates are preorder and coming out in months!

Try looking on amazon. My mother just ordered some Moxi skates on Amazon, they were sold out on the website.

Amazon doesn’t have my size. I would go with the beach bunny but those suede joints are calling me. The moxi Lollys and the moonlight night fever. I emailed moonlight no response. Not sure if I wanna place an order for 18-36 weeks and that’s not guaranteed. I may just go with the ridells get me some cool wheels and some cute strings and call it a day cause I’m ready to get on some booty shorts and knee high socks and a crop top ok!

I know how to skate, but I don’t know how to do some of the modes I see I wanna learn. Some of the things I taught myself naturally at the rink are real moves. I’m excited to finally try and skate backwards after watching dirty Kate skate or however it goes. She’s a funny good teacher. My skates should be here this week. I’m so anxious!

I forgot what video I learned to backwards skate from. (so I just remembered that I asked someone to teach me how to skate backwards, so I didn’t learn from a video. I’ll find one anyway) When you go backwards start by having your feet make an a shape and take your dominant foot and curve it inside out. I don’t know if that’s a good description so I’ll go find a video.

You can probably get that stuff at any store. I actually don’t have the “skater tube socks” but when I skate I wear ankle sock and then put short tube sock over them. As for pads Walmart,Amazon, and any sports store should have some. I don’t really know much about good brands for them because I don’t skate with them.

I actually just got back from the rink!

So jealous! I’ve been watching videos like crazy! I wanna get some indoor wheels. I seen a girl using some hardwood flooring from Home Depot to skate indoors, I’m going to get that so I can skate in and outside! I’m excited about when I go to the rink. I may even get my daughter a pair of skates and try and teach her how to skate.
