antik ar1 boot review

What the manufacturer says:

Antik Skate Boots are a culmination of passion, design and quality, brought together by Mo Sanders aka “Quadzilla”, a lifetime skater who felt the need for a new thought process and design in the way roller skate boots were made. His dream was to bring the sport of roller-skating the most comfortable and technical roller-skate boots on the market. Mo has over 30 years of skating experience in the disciplines of rhythm, roller derby, jam, speed and freestyle, which helped him understand the needs and wants of skaters all over the world. A¾ high suede uppers for added ankle support, secure fit.

Standard fibre counters.
Dry-lex interior lining.
Integrated shock absorbing heel.
Hard toe box with scuff resistant leather.
Narrow heel cup for secure fit.
Rubber foam tongue lining to relieve pressure points on top of foot.
Vulcanised rubber sole.

Pros:

Created by derby skaters for derby skaters

High top – not typical of derby skates, can be laced low,

Handy loop at the back for extra security

High top can provide more support

Custom colours, amazing combinations. Can match team colours

Leather sole with a wedge heel, very durable, skaters comment that they last several seasons.

Cons:

Can be expensive

Usually custom made, can take a while to be delivered, check with your skate provider.
