If you skate often, it’s a good idea to purchase your own roller skates. To pick out your roller skates, consider the size, look, and feel of the skates. When you feel confident and comfortable in your skates, we believe you’ll skate better! Check out several benefits of buying your own roller skates:
Skate Whenever You Want
We love when you and your friends come to Lanham Skate Center! It’s the perfect place to go when it’s too hot outside, pouring down rain, or you simply want to have a blast in the air conditioning. When you purchase your own skates, you can skate whenever and wherever you want! You don’t have to rent from us in order to skate around the neighborhood. The more you skate, the better you’ll be.
They Will Fit Your Feet Perfectly
When you wear the same skates every time you go to the rink, your feet will likely glide straight into the skates. You’ll be super comfortable in them because the skates fit your feet so well. When you rent, you may experience a few minutes of stiff skates. You can simply break them in by roller skating steadily at first. But, if you don’t want to hassle with that, it’s a good idea to buy your very own pair of skates. (After you purchase your skates, make sure you keep them well-maintained with these simple tips!)
You’ll Be Less Prone to Blisters
Additionally, if you rent, your feet may not be used to the rental skates. They may rub against your feet in an awkward way and you could develop blisters. Blisters develop when skin is damaged. They’re actually there to protect your skin. But, if you want to forego the time spent away from the rink when your skin heals, buy your own skates.
We have our very own shop where you can buy roller skates – Lanham’s Pro Shop! It’s the perfect place for you to find your perfect skates. Contact us if you have any questions. We can’t wait to see you at the rink!
