Wow, thanks!

EDIT: Why would I want to replace the skates?

Read the customer feedback. I don't know roller blades but it seems for this price range you can have a good boot but cheap (too soft) wheels. Think of those erasers that crumble when you try to use them.

Low level skates come with crappier wheels as an incentive to get you to buy higher end skates which cost more but come with significantly better wheels and bearings.

You get what you pay for so those wheels often get eaten quickly.

Look for an older, but higher level, Mission skate on clearance. Mission makes the best roller gear and places like the monkey and hockeygiant have plenty of new-old stock on clearance.
