    Hello,
    I am thinking about getting these ( http://www.shop-task.com/VALO_TV3_Ag...ka-tv3-blk.htm ) This spring. I am unsure about ordering them online because I have no idea what size I am, and should they be the same size as your shoe? I also have a wide foot, will some skates be wider near the toe then others?

    thanks,

    Mark

    I guess any skate works you just need different wheels, and frame. I will probable get what you recommended so if my feet keep growing i wont have to get a new boot every year. Heres a cool video.

    The Valos work well with a powerblade frame. So do Razors, RB, and USD. I would suggest against Xsjado skates if you are going to be powerblading a lot because they lack rigidity. Valo looks softboot, but the shell underneath is a typical skate shell that is the exact basis from the original Roces Majestic 12 skates.

    Xsjados are not really that great for anything other than freestyle rolling. Not to mention I would say if this will also be a tool to help your skiboarding to go with a more traditional skate that simulates a ski boot more. There are a few new brands arriving over the next few months including Saba (from Europe).

    I think il get some valo tv3 with kizer frames. I would get the Rollerblade Powerblades but i would also like to do some aggressive skating.
