A new pair of custom roller skates today, can cost anywhere between $100 and $1000. So how do you know if you should make the investment or stick with the trusty rentals?
When deciding whether or not to purchase your own pair of roller skates, there are a few factors to consider.
- Age. This is the most important factor because if your feet are still growing then buying skates is a waste of money. Roller skates are not cheap and if you are still growing then you could need new skates in a matter of months.
- Frequency. How often you roller skate should play a factor in buying your own pair. If you go monthly or weekly, investing in custom roller skates would be a great idea. However, if you only go every couple of months, we would suggest increasing your time at Chester Skate before investing in your own skates.
- Budget. Like we said earlier, skates can range a ton in price. For this reason, we suggest finding which boot, wheels and accessories you like and feel best with your feet. From there, see how much the ideal skate for you would cost. Chester Skate Pro Shop has a variety of roller skates and accessories. Stop in or call with any questions you have.
We hope our tips help guide you in the right direction to buy skates or stick with our trusty rentals. If you have any questions about roller skate purchases or anything roller skate related, feel free to contact Chester Skate and we would be happy to help!
