Why everyone needs roller skates in 2020

Why everyone needs roller skates in 2020

When I saw these roller skates, I remembered back home I would skate around our local skating rink in Brisbane, my bestie and I would skate for hours and hours.  Hate to admit but she was a way better skater than I was.  

Recently I took my daughter and her friend to a pop up skating rink, I was shocked that my 10 year did not know how to skate.  Shame on me as a parent!! So stocking these amazing skates at Jemanda was an easy decision for me.

I absolutely fell in love with Impala Roller Skates, they are Retro style Skates and come in the most amazing colour, the hardest decision was not “do I buy them”, it was, “which colour do I buy”…

These Impala Retro Roller Skates come in the most amazing colours, pink skates, purple skates, black skates, white skates, aqua skates, rose gold skates, floral skates, silver skates.  There is also Marawa Rose Gold, Voltage Green, limited edition releases such as the Cynthia Rowley Floral.  Plus who doesn’t love a leopard print roller skate?

I still love roller skating around Brisbane - some roller skating places around Brisbane would be New Farm, Botanical Gardens, Hamilton, West End and South Bank.  Or skate along the beach down the Gold Coast, local Skate Park or your indoor skating rink in Brisbane.

Impala Roller Skates are stocked at Little Rookie Sport, some of the skate features are:

  • PVC Upper, heel and sole
  • Metal speed lace eyelets
  • Aluminium alloy trucks and baseplate
  • 58mm 82s durometer nylon core urethane wheels
  • ABEC 7 bearings
  • PU brake stopper
  • PETA-approved vegan product

When looking at the sizing chart note cm measurements are approximates. We recommend selecting your EU size and if you are a half size I recommend going up to the next full size.  

When buying skates there are a few factors to take into consideration:

  • The right size
  • Comfort
  • Quality
  • Brand
  • Colours

There are so many different brands, styles and colours you can choose from.  While black is the most common we are spoilt for choices.  Indoor skates, outdoor skates, Kids Skates.

Looking after your skates:

After wearing your skates, make sure you untie the laces to allow them to dry properly.

Dirt should be removed by gently knocking your skates together to rid of any dirt.

Once you have removed most of the dirt wipe down with a damp cloth.  If you have a build up of mud use an old toothbrush to remove the build up of dirt.

Learning to Skate - Always wear Protection:

Always wear an USA approved helmet when rollerskating.  Also when you are learning to skate make sure you wear elbow pads and knee pads, they protection pads will save any unnecessary grazes.

Start off slowly using a rail and take really short little steps, it will take a bit of time of just practise practise practise.  Once you are feeling a bit more confident, hold a parents hand and try skating away from the rail.  Before too long you will be skating!  Be prepared for a few falls.
