Nijdam Roller Skates

Notice: It seems that the Nijdam classic leather roller skates are not available on Amazon anymore.

It doesn’t matter whether it’s roller skates, inline skates or even ice skates – Nijdam produces and offers them all. And not just a few, but a wide variety of different versions. That’s especially nice when it comes to roller skates, because there are not that many companies making them left. The massive rise of popularity of inline skates in the early nineties caused a lot of companies to abandon roller skates in favour of inline skates. Since roller skates started coming back more companies are offering them again, but few offer as much variety as Nijdam. Continue reading Review Nijdam classic leather roller skates

Review Hudora My First Quad Roller Skates

They do look a bit weird – the Hudora My First Quad skates. Big, thin wheels at the side of the heels, tiny thin wheels below the front. It is kind of obvious that this construction is a pair of roller skates, but at the same time…. not as we know them. Let’s have a closer look to see whether this somewhat weird concept pays of.

Review Roller Derby Viper M4

The Viper M4 roller skates from Roller Derby are “speed quad skates”. While that does indeed mean that they are designed for going fast, it doesn’t meant that that is all they can do.They are just as useful for taking a relaxed tour around the neighbourhood after work.

Review Rookie Canvas

Rookie CanvasAt first glance, the Rookie Canvas roller skates barely look like real roller skates at all. When you think of modern roller skates the first thing that comes to mind are usually the blocks of hard plastic that resemble ski boots. The Canvas from Rookie look more like someone took a pair of Chucks and glued them to a pair of roller skate trucks. Of course there’s much more to it. Continue reading Review Rookie Canvas
