I'm 28/m, and I just recently decided to start rollerblading again. I have been running everyday for the past few years, but thought it'd be nice to change it up a little due to a few recent back injuries making running the distance I go more and more diff. I used to rollerblade as a younger teen and was more into the whole "skater" scene so it was mostly aggressive style skating, not distance or anything. So when shopping for these rollerblades I had no clue what to look for. I went with the same name skates I used to have to start off somewhere (mine got lost over time and they were the K2 fatty brand) I loved them and after reviewing many skates I came across k2 fit 78's. All and all, great skates for the price in my opinion. Very comfy and sizing is pretty spot on too. I went with my norm shoe size and the blades fit well. They were a little skinny at the toe end, my feet are average size 10. But I have about 40 hrs on them so far and they seem to be forming to the feet nicely now, so unless u have wide feet I'd stick to your true shoe size...not for wide feet!!! Lol. They take to the bumps and cracks and such in the road nicely too. Not sure if they are the best out there, I know nothing about skates except what it says in the specs, but I have no problems with them. They look just like the pic, the shipping was super fast(I got next day and they were at my door by 230) def worth every penny. The only thing I cant say is how long they will last, they seem really well made so im guessing these things will last a long time.... but time will tell. Great buy!

the K2 roller blades are great. love the design, the only issue is that they need to have more padding or a better intersole to deal with the vibration of the wheels. maybe it's just me because I'm an older user. that is my only issue.

I just got these today and I would first like to say that the delivery speed was phenomenal. I ordered these on Wednesday morning and got them Friday night(go UPS!). When I unboxed them and tried them on, they fit pretty well although it was a little loose around the ankle area (I normally wear a size 8.5 but ordered a size 9);I would've preferred more ankle support. After putting them on, I took them for a test skate and the ride was amazing. The wheels just glided over the pavement and the soft boot contoured to the changing angles of my feet. The brake works fine and the design is sick(black and red work so well together!). I truly recommend buying this skate, and I suggest you buy your true shoe size because I went half a size up and the shoe doesn't fit as tightly as I would've thought, leading to decreased ankle support. These are good for beginner and intermediate skaters but might not be as effective for long distance or competitive skaters who value speed and efficiency above the balance that smaller wheels (78mm for these skates) provide. Overall, this skate is a great buy, its superior quality greatly outclasses its bargain price and I can guarantee that you will be satisfied with this product.

These skates are very comfortable and are great on a paved trail. This is my second pair of K2 skates and I have loved both of them. My last set lasted me 10 years (not the wheels) so I needed to replace them. These skates are even better than my last pair. They are much more comfortable and I know I will get years of enjoyment out of them just like my last pair.

The reason for the 4 out of 5 Stars were that although the skates fit length wise and a great fit from heel to toe, the shoe as a whole was a tad too wide for my already wide feet. They ran a tad rough on its maiden voyage because they were wobbly at the foot because it was so difficult to hold them steady...Again because they were to wide. Putting a couple of inserts in the boot was a quick and easy fix, but I have to super tighten the laces and strap so I dont break my ankles while skating. They have excellent balance and had no issues with my strap, others reviewed that the strap broke on their Skates.. Mine held strong even after pulling them super tight..

When was a car hop at sonic I hated the ones that they provided so I got my own, and these are amazing. Super light and the wheels are great too, really soft. I would be on them for up to 8 hours a day so they had to be good. Only complaint was that I wore the wheels down fast. But that is expected with soft wheels and how fast I used to go. So I'm not docking them for it. Sturdy materials too for being plastic and mesh cloth.

I like the soft boot design of these skates. I've only had hard boot skates before and I have to say these are way better. May be hard to get used to at first, but feels more like hiking boots instead of a big clunky piece of plastic. The material breathes well so your feet won't feel like they are in a sauna. Hardware gets the skate tight enough.

I'm an occasional rider and bought this pair because it had the most 4+ star user's ratings. I did skate awhile back and was using hard boot and all aluminum frame skates at that time. This pair has soft boot (and also non-aluminum frame, it has fiber material composite instead) and it is a little bit wiggly This could be due to the fact that my shoe size is 10.5 and skate size is 11, and also my feet are rather narrow than wide (however, once they are laced I think they fit perfectly). This also could be due to soft boot nature. All in all, I don't really find this bothersome but this is something to note for prospective buyers.
As for the K2 brand in general, this is great brand, my wife has K2 FIT women's inline skates and she likes them, too.
