A teammate I played roller with for a couple seasons was around 6'2, 275 and not what I'd call fat. He was an all-state D linemen in HS and said he played college. He destroyed a number of skates during the two seasons I played with him. He'd just be skating in a pair for the third or fourth time and all of a sudden, poof, it was done like dinner. Though this was roller hockey, the upper end skates are still pretty stiff
