When visiting the wonderful roller skating rink at our International Sports, Skating and Fun Centre at Cherry Hill, we offer our customer two rental choices: roller blades or quads, in kids sizes 7 up to adult size 14’s. While these are both excellent options, sometimes you want to roll into the rink with your own pair of skates. Lucky for you, ISC Cherry Hill now sells skates in our Skate Shop! If you’re still wondering what type of skates you should buy, check out the roller skate guide below about the main three types of skates to choose from.
Also known as “Roller Blades,” inline skates are easy to spot since they are the only type of skates that have four wheels in a straight line from front to back. Inline skates also have the brake fixed to the back of the skates, not the front as with classic roller skates. Typically, these skates can be used indoors and outdoors with little issue and also have “speed skate” versions to choose from.
Although quad roller skates are known as the “classic skate,” they have far more options now than ever before! These two by two rollers include several different types such as: artistic skates, jam skates, speed skates, derby skates and rhythm skates. These skates range from the classic tall skate boot of the artistic skate to the low cut jam skate styles. Which skate you choose out of these really depends on what your planned usage will be. Also, most quad skates are generally not made for the outdoors as their wheels are made for specifically smooth surfaces. No matter which skate you decide on, be sure to check out our ISC Cherry Hill Skate Shop!
