Review Content So fun! Just got these as a birthday gift, and I am loving them! Skates work great, The adjustable features is great, because I can use them and so can my son. The Instant Skates are comfortable too, and really perform just like regular roller skates or roller blades. Best birthday gift ever! The skates appear bulky at first, but the ease in putting them on and off combined with the workmanship makes these the best gift ever! Its between... Quad skates and inline Im almost 40 and I havent skate in over 12 years. I was able to pick it up within 30 minutes and I can "survive". It made such a good impression, my entire family has a pair. Its a good way to burn off some fat. I would not go out in town, hills etc until you have it down... As far knowing how to stop, etc. But if you like riding inline skates, these will be childs play to you. Fun and Easy Perfect option for my son to get to/from classes on a small college campus. Better than long board or bike. READ THE MANUAL. A great gift! I bought these for my son-in-law. He loves them. He tells me they are user friendly, fun to use and convenient. They are easy on-easy off and fit to your shoes comfortably. Amazing but not for me I have tried many different kind of shoes but no matter what I try, they still slip on back heels. The skates though are great but I prefer the old fashioned ones for myself. Street Skates Easy to use, great exercise.
