A new modern re-design of the old traditional strap-on skate has been developed an launched by Cardiff Skates and provides a convenient alternative to boot style skates which require you carry extra footwear to change into when you remove your skates.
The Cardiff Skates have been designed to quickly strap over your existing footwear and will adjust to easily fit a variety of foot sizes. Check out the video after the jump to see them in action and learn more.
The design of the Cardiff Skates consisted of 4 wheels in a diamond style configuration which make the skates very stable and easy to use for beginners, as well as being suitable for advanced skaters that would prefer to keep their footwear on. Cardiff Skates explain a little more:
“The innovative, patented design from Cardiff Skate introduces a never-before-seen level of comfort and convenience that allows you to strap our skates right onto your favorite shoes and cruise. Our 3-wheeled, bootless, easy-on, easy-off, one-size-fits-all technology makes skating easier and more enjoyable than ever before!
Our unique wheel configuration and braking system is more stable and more convenient than any other skate on the market, making them perfect for transportation or recreation anywhere, for everyone!”
The unique Cardiff Skates are now available to purchase in two different sizes and are priced at $160 and are available from the official Cardiff Skates online store.
