STEP-IN SKATES?

Step-in skates, or “Blade & Walk” skates are designed for convenience, allowing you to use your regular, everyday footwear rather than a liner. These special skates have a skeleton structure or binding that allows you to easily step into the skates, strap in and get rolling. Lightweight and incredibly functional, step-in-skates are perfect for commuting and everyday transportation.
