Whats up, my hunnies!? Alrighty….you’ve asked for it (at least some of you have 😉 )…so I’m here to answer. Where do I get my skates? And guys, I’m only too eager to share this because, the more, the merrier!!??
If you’re with me on Instagram, you know ive reignited an old love of mine – rollerskates! And that shizz honestly makes me so happy, i would wish that kind of feeling on EVERYONE!And it seems my love and craving for rollerskates of all these years since my childhood was not done in a vacuum! There is an entire global community of folk who appreciate the joy and sheer bliss that comes with a pair of rollerskates! And so after years of searching, and apparently a global shortage of stock that came with increased demand over the 2020 lockdown period, the stars aligned and I found not one but TWO local South African places to buy your very own pair from! (there are other places, but these two I found after much shopping around, have great service and value for money, and I’ve had a wonderful personal experience with them!)
BUT WAIT, there’s more! : ) Not only will I share that, but also share some tips how to choose your size (especially wide feet folk, like me, who are not so sure!), what type of skate you’ll have to choose between (flat or heeled), and what to look out for in your skate when choosing. And bonus, where to get some dope ass local, hand made toe caps! ; )
And yes, I AM A BEGINNER skater (loud and proud), but thats also why i feel like I could be helpful; We’re possibly on a very similar journey, and I’ve very likely had similar questions and struggles to you, not so long ago. So from one beginner skater to another… 😉
