As Dr. Seuss said, “Today you are You, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is Youer than You.” If you skate regularly and have decided to buy your own roller skates, you probably already want to stand out with your own skates and style. Read on to learn how to customize roller skates to make them totally YOU.
3 Ways to Customize Your Skates
- Laces, Pom Poms, and Skate Covers – The possibilities are endless when you change up the colors and patterns of your skate laces and other accessories. Pom Poms are a fun way to add some personality, while skate covers are not only decorative, but also functional, protecting your skate boots from scuffs and scrapes.
- Wheels, Bearings, Plates, and Trucks – The longer you skate, the more you’ll learn about how different pieces of the overall skate fit together to impact the “ride” and performance of the skates. Whether you’re trying to make your skates faster or improve responsiveness, visit our pro shop for help choosing the components that will take your skates to the next level.
- Other Gear – Don’t forget to trick out your skate bag as well! You can get skate bags in lots of colors, not to mention all the possibilities for decorating with patches or stickers. You can also express yourself with different colors and patterns on your helmet, wrist guards, and elbow/knee pads.
