Rollerblade Women's Spark 84 Inline Skates
I have used these twice so far and I am a little disappointed with them when I compare them to the K2 andra skates I had. It seems like I have to do a lot more work in these compared to the k2's. they are not quite as comfortable either. That said, they are ok.

These skates came in a timely manner. They fit well and are a lot fun. I love the rollerblade brand (did not want to purchase any other brand) and am not dissapointed.

I got these for christmas and have used alot. I have been rollerblading for 20 years and hope these last as long as my old ones did. They are a very smooth ride and not too bulky like some. I do think the boot is a little more narrow than I am used to but end up using thinner socks which I worried I would get a blister from but due to the great support of this boot my foot stays in place and there is no rubbing so no blisters. The first ride was for an hour and it was great. I did buy the abec 7 bearing ones because I was afraid the 9s would make me go too fast. Now I do think I should have bought the 9s because they glide very smooth with no vibration and I am experienced and still have to work a little harder for speed with these than I expected. Over all these are great and I would recommend them!!!!

Made extremely well!
I am from Minnesota, where Rollerblades were first used in the 70's I believe. I have had a pair since then. My last pair lasted me for 27 years. They were made well and I am pleased to say that these women's Spark blades are JUST AS EXCELLENT. I used them today for a 7 1/2 mile skate and felt secure support and comfort. Just looking at them and feeling them I can tell they are put together well for the serious or the amateur . Easy to order. I will be happy for years to come.

I skate for fitness, and typically skate between 20-30 miles per week. I bought these to replace a 6 year old pair of rollerblades, and am very pleased. They are fast, smooth and quiet. I cut about 5 minutes off my regular 10 mile skate using these the first time. They are good on rougher pavement too. My quibbles (which are why I gave 4 stars instead of 5) are that I think the boot is really narrow around the ankle/instep, and I have fairly narrow feet/ankles. It took some adjusting in the laces to make them comfortable and they still feel a bit snug there. However, I am sure they will break in over time. Also, the latch mechanism at the top is a little more awkward to latch in than my old pair of skates. The overall look is fine - I could do without the "girly" scrollwork designs, but it is small and so not really visible to anyone but me.

I purchased different product for lower price ($85) and had problems with wheels. I was sceptical about spending more $. I higly recomended this rolerblades, very comfortable shoes,good speed. I went for 6 miles first time and felt like I can go more. Don't be afraid to spend more $.

never to old to be active outside
I picked out the spark 84 for my 31st birthday. I couldn't wait for them to come in. The blades were shipped sooner than expected. I went for a 5 mile ride the first day. They roll extremely smooth! My feet were a little sore after but I think it is because it gives you great support. No blisters and my feet don't hurt anymore. I love my blades my legs and glutes thank me.
