braking? lol... I don't think too many skaters use non-hockey skates for inline hockey...

If you are playing indoor inline hockey, make sure you get indoor wheels that are very soft, 74A or 76A ... That will give you good traction...

if you are playing outdoor inline hockey, make sure you get outdoor wheels with a high hardness rating, look for 82A or 84A... The wheels will last longer and you will be able to stop without sliding too far...



Just practice your hockey stop before you start playing... It's not hard to learn if you knew how to do it on ice... The weight distribution is just a little bit different..... On ice hockey skates, you can be much lighter on your skates when you do your hockey stop.... With inline, I think you generally have to turn your skates faster and and harder to get the wheels to give on the surface....
