About Womens skates
Top brands like K2, Rollerblade and Powerslide make women's fitness and recreational skates that are specifically, ergonomically shaped to suit a womans foot. A woman's foot has a higher instep, a lower ankle, a lower calf and a thinner profile. Most of the top brands make two versions of each model of skate they make: A woman's skate and a men's skate. They will usually be differentiated by colour, the women's skates usually using softer, more pastel-like colours. Skates get higher in price as the specification gets higher. Quite simply, the more you spend, the better you get; like anything. Higher priced skates will have better comfort and liners, better build quality, stronger and more supportive materials (like Aluminium frames), bigger and better wheels, higher rated bearings and jazzy add-ons like fancy lacing systems and better airflow through the skates.
