Step 3:

Choose your Wheels

Urethane - For super grip, control, and artistic dance. Great wheel for beginners! Velvets, Vanathanes, & Clays - For more freedom & some slide, yet still maintain some grip and control.  Woods & Stones (Vintage) - For more accomplished skaters who want to slide and glide. Fibers - For sliders and experts. Maximum freedom & certainly NOT for beginners!

Step 4:

Choose your Bearings

Bearings determine your speed. A low quality bearing will cause you to work harder to maintain your roll. There are many good quality bearings that won’t break your pocketbook. Precision and Looseball options. Precision bearings have become the standard and are low maintenance.
Go to Step 5

Step 5:

Choose your Customizations

Have your wheels Custom-Cut to a smaller size. For those who already own wheels, you can also custom- cut to resize uneven wheels, remove pits, & more. Add color (Powder-Coat) to the metal hardware of your skates. Inexpensively add more color by upgrading to Super Cushions. Dye your shoes/boots to add your unique flare. More hardware plating options coming soon!

Turn your favorite shoes into skates! Be sure to select a shoe with a sturdy sole for support. We can mount most shoes. Feel free to call or email if you’re unsure your shoe is suitable to turn into skates. Check our inventory for current shoes and boots stock.

Step 2:

Choose your Plate

-With or without toe stops. If you know how to stop without using your toe stop, you may choose a NTS (No Toe Stop) plate. -With precision or looseball trucks. Most new skaters select skate plates with trucks designed for precision bearings because of low maintenance and increased wheel options.
