The Reebok 5K Inline Skate is the ideal skate for players looking for some higher end features, but perhaps not all the add-ons that more expensive models feature.
A stiff, FitLite quarter package provides sound ankle support and helps to keep your ankles from "bowing out" during play. With a proper skating position in place, you'll more power per stride. Transferring the power is a lightweight outsole that is attached to a Labeda chassis with a 4x80mm (senior) wheel setup.
Inside the boot, you'll find thick comfort foam ankle padding for both protection and comfort. While not technically heat moldable, this foam will, over a short period of time, form to the shape of your ankle and foot. The boot is lined with a sport liner on the sides and an anatomical molded footbed in the bottom. Out front, a Pro style white felt tongue provides a certain level of added protection and style.
A lightweight Labeda chassis stocked with Labeda Gripper wheels hook you up to the floor with excellent indoor grip. You'll be thankful for the ABEC 7 bearings when your legs are gassed.
All in all, with a supportive boot, excellent wheels and lightweight chassis, the Reebok 5K Inline Skates offer an exciting option and are a great entry to mid level skate.
