    Tip of the Week


    If you own your own skates, we recommend that you add an insole/foot bed to the skates. For adding one to quads, I suggest you reach out to the local quad shop or YouTube, but I can suggest for INLINE/Rollerblades that you add an insole to improve the quality of your skating. Insoles will give you a better arch in the foot than the standard insole that comes with the skate. We recommend the Yellow Superfeet because it is thin. Shop-Task sells them and they can assist you in fitting them into the skate. You don’t buy them by the length, but you buy them based on where the arch sits on your foot. REI can also fit you with them. Nearly all your adult instructors have them in their skates and it’s what allows them to so easily and effortlessly get on the proper edges. Yellow, low profile Superfeet. About $40 but will last a long time.

    Thank you for your support! Trish & the SJ Team
