They look very similar, but they're very different. If you're just starting out, stay away from the x60, or any other high-end skates. They will be way too stiff for someone just starting out. Hell, they're too stiff for me!

The x30 is a decent skate though. As always though, try on a few different brands before making your purchase. Bauer Vapors and Supremes have a complete different fit, so it depends on your foot. Take your time, try many skates and go with the one that fits best, not the one that 'looks the coolest'.
