View Full Version : Place to buy rollerblades online
08-22-2000, 11:24 AM
Does anybody know of a place to buy rollerblades online? I've checked through the obvious places, ebay, fogdog, etc., but havent found what I'm after. I'm looking for Salomon AC 7, both mens and womens.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hey hey me too, I have been looking for a while now with not much luck. And I can't really go to a local store cause I wear size 16 shoes http://www.gotapex.com/ubb/frown.gif

I think if there was one thing I'd not buy from the Internet...it'd be underwear from Ebay. But if there were two things, it'd be the underwear and inline skates. Just there are so many different feels, and if you get one that doesn't fit right, you're looking at some serious blisters/foot pain. Do yourself a favour, forego the $10 coupon you might get, and head to a B&M store for inlines. It can be fun, but also torture if your blades don't fit right.

HOWEVER! If you're going to be adamant about not leaving the house (which begs the question, why outdoor equipment), here you go. http://www.worldwidesports.com/picpages/rollers/salomon00ac7mens.shtml

NOOOOO!!! it is a conspricy I tell ya. They don't make anything for people with big feet. It took me forever to find size 15 snowboard boots and I fear I am never going to get any rollerblades that actually fit. Well unless I call the manufacturor and spend tons of money to get them custom made, which sucks.
Hmm maybe I should just chop off my toes...

Actually, I'd be surprised if they charged you more to make a "plus" size. 'Course, you probably aren't going to get much of MSRP, but then again, you might get a close out or something from last season. you might want to try.

I tried WorldWide the other day.. they don't carry them in the sizes I need, and arent getting anymore... I will look into the other place you mentioned though...

Well they really don't charge you much more, it is just that the only ones the usually customize like that are their high end skates, so I would have to end up buying something like a $500 pair, when all I really want to spend/can afford to spend is about $200 or less.
Oh well I will look around some more
