Bout Betties Wild Thang
*In Men’s sizes. A men’s size is a size and a half smaller than women’s sizes.*
These are a great beginner recreational skate, not intended to be used at the skate park.
Microfiber Suede: Vegan friendly!
Aluminum alloy eyelets: Durable through many tightening and re-lacing sessions.
Aluminum plate: Provides stability as aluminum plates won’t flex like a cheaper nylon plate. This means you won’t lose/waste any energy into the plate when doing things like accelerating from a dead stop, coming to a stop or when using your edges. This is especially important if you weigh over 160.
Machine Stitched soles:
Keeps the boot firm and secure to the sole so you can shift your weight without fear of the sole flexing.
ABEC-7 bearings: Great for outdoor use, recreational skating, and roller derby skating. This is the industry standard with most skates.
85A Wheels: Wheels can be used for both indoor or outdoors but just know that they are softer wheels which helps for outdoor use and may feel sticky/grippier on floors than harder indoor wheels would.
Polyurethane adjustable toe stop: Being able to adjust your toe stop to the height you need is major. (Bolt-on toe stops don’t allow for any adjusting). This is also AMAZING when it comes time to replace your worn out toe stops! You just need a wrench to remove it and can use any other brand/size/density of toe stop you want. This prevents you from having to buy a whole new replacement plate.
Laces 88″ long: This length is perfect for those of you that like double knotting your laces, or wrapping your laces around your skate for extra tightness.
Padded tongue: Provides extra comfort on the top of your foot to keep laces from rubbing you the wrong way.
90A PU Cushions
Ventilation holes: Small ventilation holes on the inside and outside arches of the skates.
