K2 Men's F.I.T. 80 Inline Skates
Very nice roller blades
I bought them for my friend who was struggling mastering the art with cheap roller blades from another store. She is able to skate much better with the K2s. She liked the men's better than the women's because the mens have steel rails and the womens are plastic. I told her it did not matter but I never an argument with a lady.

First time In-Liner at 69 years
This was a thoughtful decision considering my age and the possibility of injury but did play hockey for many years thru college hockey player. The basic ability to skate was there and buying a quality skate like the K2 to begin with was a good decision. The skate quality and comfort is excellent and the support is terrific. If there is a problem it is only limited to keeping the skates tightly laced. Have to stop after 15 minutes to tighten. Maybe it's me. Considering that I had not skated for many years, after the third outing I was able to crossover turning both ways and stop reasonably well but still need time to get better in this area. Big difference from ice skating is the stopping but the K2 is a big help with the support that provides the stability. For anyone venturesome enough to start in-line skating at 69, I recommend the best of equipment like these skates.
I did not fall until my third outing and I think that is pretty good. I am not saying that in-line skating is easy for mature individuals but I cannot imagine starting with anything lesser is quality and support of these K2's. Highly recommend!!

I have been playing hockey for the last 15 years of my life and wanted to get an outdoor fitness skate. right out of the box these skates are very comfortable they won't hurt your feet. My problem was the strap that runs over the top of the laces broke after the third use. I'm going to return them and probably get a more expensive and higher quality skate with at least a tec 7 or higher bearing. There is no better fun cardio workout than skating outside in my option.

good skates poor wheels
the skates themselves are great but the wheels are wearing way too fast will need to be replaced after less than 2 months of use

Great skates for a great price
Been out on the F.I.T 80s three times now and haven't even tried looking for those old hockey skates I have in the garage somewhere. Right out of the box these felt great. Ample padding, nice support, lots of adjustment. Having a normal to thin foot, the width seems a bit large but this skate should easily fit most feet. Wheels and bearings are smooth and fast.
