Sure-Grip GT-50 Roller Skates Review

Brief History

Sure-Grip have been making roller skates for a long time, and the GT-50 is one of their long-running models. It is aimed at beginners and recreational skaters, and has been refined over the years to be a skate that you can trust to perform without any hitches.

Previously it was available in black or white models, and as of last year, it is now also available in grey, making it the only entry level skate available in that colour.

Crazy Skates VXi Roller Skates Review

Brief History

Crazy VXi Roller Skates have come a long way since they were first released.

Crazy VXi Roller SkatesThe Crazy VXi is the successor of the Crazy VX which featured a metal plate and was in fact the only low cut skate to feature a metal plate at the entry level price point (the only other one that I'm aware of is the Riedell RW Wave, a high top boot).

With the release of the VXi, the metal plate was replaced by a light weight nylon plate and the round toe stop that was featured on all Crazy skates was replaced by the non-marking Arrow toe stop.
