it's too much money man hi this is Lars my moniker is danger man I'm here to give some tips to beginners on how to wear skates without any pain it's real simple actually and beginning stages of skating people can usually have a stamina that will let them go for hours but their feet just can't give them that time because the pain they experience right here in the arch if you're skating you feel like somehow there's this pain pushing down and perhaps you feel like it's pushing up the trick to that is a very loose skate when you put it on don't try to fight your way into skate ok when you go in the laces across the arch should be very very loose there are two places you want your skates tight you want to with your laces tight down near the toes the ball and you want to tight again up on the ankle for support as you come across the arch way you want it loose so right in here you're not going to pull too tight you're going to put taut but not tight so as you come across the arch just keep it loose now you may be thinking well that was simple I'll just keep it loose across the arch now that's half the equation the first part of the equation was that we had a completely loose boot in the first place we slipped our foot right into it we didn't fight in because when you fight in right here at the beginning of the arch way those laces will push down and that that push will be will remain in play even after you tighten these up just a little bit so while you think you've left it loose here you're still tight across the lower part of the arch we tighten the very top moves here's your second tip after skating for five minutes your laces will come will come loose return to your skate and tighten arch one more time I'm sorry the ankle the upper ankle now these are speed skates you're probably thinking how does that work for me with recreational boots the higher your cuff you have a low cuff a mid cuff and a hike off on a skate the more ankle support you get beginning skaters want a higher cuff for more ankle support however you will find it that's usually going to come in this skate you'll find it like Modell's are dicks or some sort of big-box store those skates are great to start in but ultimately you're going to want to go with a more of a mid cuff or our soft boot skate like a k2 or a Seba and there's your tip for today you

    Hi. Thanks for the tip. I have been rollerblading for more than 25 years. I did three marathons with decent time on my boot type rollerblades. Specifically the rollerblade macroblade 84 with four 90mm wheels. I recently moved from these to a racing pair, the powerblade 3wd 125. The difference is unbelievable. It is day and night of a difference. The new low design, made from carbon, so hard on my ankle, hurts so much on the side of my ankles from the pressure and also from the rubbing of the hard material against the sides of the ankles. Any tips you can offer someone who is moving to racing type blades? It is so frustrating…

    My Bont inlines are so tight around the ankle that I have to really push hard to get them on, and the cuff is hard and unmoldable. They are three sizes higher than what Bont recommends for my foot size. The ones that supposedly are my size don’t even fit my foot at all.

    I bought the K2 VO2 100 X PRO 2016 last year in the late summer trying to get into inline skating. The reason i bought big wheels is to easier roll over debris on the road.

    Anyways i am a total beginner on skates, it's like learning to walk all over again. I've only practiced like two hours last year. This year i really wanna get into it but the biggest problem i had was the pain on the bottom of my feet after only a couple of minutes riding them. Loosen up the laces seemed to have reduced to pain by about 80% so far.

    I hope i will improve my skills rapidly so i can use them outside for recreational purpose or even ride 'em to work.

    I keep buying Bont’s which is the only company to use a three point connection. I think a three point frame is the safest in case a connection bolt should come loose. Also it allows your weight to more evenly distribute itself over the frame. I find the three point frame a lot more comfortable because of this. I agree about keeping the laces loose. I log a hundred miles a week on my skates as that’s how I commute to work, rain or shine. I never have pain unless the boot is brand new. It takes about two weeks to break them in.

    Hello! I have completely fallen arches, and my ankles pronate badly so they are easy to roll So I like a nice tight boot. I have custom carbon fiber orthotics that I wear all day and I also put in my skates. I am using a hard boot skate (Imperial supercruisers). At first I had issues with pressure on my ankles, so I heated up the plastic and relived the ankle pressure in those areas. I can get the boot snug and tight there above the arch, and on the cuff, but the hard boot allows for a lot of room in the front of the boot . I'm wondering if I should heat that up and press it tighter to my foot as well, since no amount of tightening can move the plastic. The pain I experience is actually on the outside of my feet (opposite my arch and about an inch towards my toes) which I'm guessing is because I tighten it too much above the arch. Any help is appreciated thanks!

    Thank you for the advice. I had been making the mistake of keeping my laces as tight as humanly possible.
    Inline skates are a remedy to me in order to keep being fit with my knee joints being too weak to jog for a long time. Too bad the weather in my hometown is shit and the police treat skaters as scum(

    Hello danger man how you doing…
    Just need to ask u..
    I've been using fitness inline skate tempest 110mm.
    I learned by watching alot of inline skating VIDs lessons i did alot of practicing, Dry skating in order to strengthen lower body muscle and upper body.
    i was reading also about the muscle memory how u must keep it memorised by practicing off skate. Its been like 5 – 6 months of practicing and skating.
    I am thinking of switching to Inline Speed skate Low cuff. i need to know what challenges, difficulties or differences i am going to face by this type of rollers?.
    Best regards
    Thnx alot for ur helpful vids.

    I have never skated before. Just bought Seba FR1. They are very comfortable, but I feel underneath my foot is getting tired, not pain. Probably because im not used to standing on skates? will this pass ? Just by standing on the skates this happens.

    When I do this it feels like there just aren't enough laces to properly tie all the way up the skate. Any tips? Am I doing something wrong? I have Bauer Vapor x500R skates
