My First Day in 5 Wheel Speed Skates
by Kathie Fry

My first 5 wheel speed skates were full custom boots molded for my feet by Bont Skates of Australia and the boot model I selected was the Black Widow. I ordered them with 12.8 inch Boen UltraLite frames from Italy. The skates were delivered to me in person by North American Bont Representative (and good friend) Glenn Koshi of Huntington Beach, California, Glenn is also the guy who molded my feet for the custom boots.

Here is how that first day went...
