Imagine sitting in the living room on Christmas morning. Your daughter has a box in her lap, and you smile as she tears through the ribbon, paper, and tape holding it closed. Her face lights up as she takes out a new pair of roller-skates. Before breakfast, she’s already begging to hit the rink tomorrow.
Roller-skates aren’t just another holiday toy. They’re an experience. Skates keep kids active, encourage family play, and are plenty of fun to boot. And there’s no age limit to roller-skating! Kids as young as toddlers can learn, and you can keep skating as long as you love it, even if that’s 50, 60, or 70 years later. If you want a gift that will last past New Year’s Day, it’s time to invest in holiday roller-skates.
Christmas Skates at Southwestern Skate
How do you find the best pair of roller-skates? Ask yourself these questions:
- Quad or inline. Some skaters like the streamlined speed of inline skates. Others prefer classic box-wheel skates. Before buying holiday skates, pay attention to which type of roller-skates the recipient likes when they visit Southwestern Skate.
- Sport skates or classic skates? If the skater on your gift list loves roller derby, jam skating, speed skating, or aggressive skating, there’s a skate for that! If you’re buying skates for a new or casual skater, look for simpler skates without the extra flexibility and speed designed into sports skates.
- Basic skates, or something with style? Here’s where things get fun! You’ll find skates of all styles and colors at the Southwestern Skate Pro Shop. Buy boots with a fun print, bold color, or fun detail. You can also buy custom wheels in a variety of colors and prints (and even special wheels for speed or tricks). All that’s left is to find some eye-catching laces and a bow for the box!
