5 Wheel Fitness Skates

Fitness and recreational skates with 5 wheels typically have a higher cuff, more padding, and more comfort features than a true speed boot.

Bauer (Speed 9.0)
This cool looking, light weight, soft boot skate is no longer being manufactured by Bauer-Nike, but it is still available in a few skate shops [Bauer does not have a Web site for their speed skates]

Miller (Sport - Fitness Pro - Fitness Elite)
Scroll down toward the bottom of this page to see Miller's line of 5 wheel fitness skates, which includes the Miller Sport, Miller Fitness Pro, and Miller Fitness Elite. These skates sell for $550 to $750. The Fitness Elite is a very low cut boot with more padding than a real racing boot. [Miller Skates]

K2 (Mod 10 - Mod 10.5)
This is a light-weight, soft boot skate that is well ventilated to prevent moisture from accumulating around the foot. It closes with laces, an ankle buckle, and a velcro strap at the instep. Available in men's size 5-13 (USA sizing). This is a good looking, comfortable skate that I probably would have purchased if it had been available in a USA size 4-1/2. [K2 Skates] ]

Roces (Paris)
This skate has a supportive hard-shell outer frame and a soft boot inside the shell to makes it comfortable enough for people who don't like a full hard-boot skate. The skate closes with a speed-lace/lace-lock system. Available in sizes 3 to 14 (U.K. sizing) [Roces Skates]

Rollerblade (Lightning - XR5 - Fusion 10K)
Rollerblade has had made different models 5 wheel fitness skates and their newest model is the Lightning. [Rollerblade]

Salomon (TR Vitesse)
This is a comfortable, well-padded skate that has better side-to-side ankle support than many soft boot skates. It closes with Salomon's signature speed-lace and lace-lock system and a ratchet buckle at the ankle. It has a flexible forward and back ankle joint that allows a skater to get very low for powerful striding. [Rollerblade]

Tecnica (Marathon - Marathon Pro - Fiber Race)
Some people would consider the Marathon and Fiber Race to be speed skates rather than than a fitness skates because they have very low cut ankle cuffs, but both of those skates have more padding inside than a true speed boot, which makes them more suitable for fitness and long-distance skating than for racing. The Marathon is heavier and higher cut than the Marathon Pro and the Fiber Race, but many fitness skaters prefer it because of the extra ankle support. [Tecnica]

Ultrawheels (Biofit XT12)
This is a nice skate but it only comes in 3 sizes. It is really made for the large size skater (US size 14-16 only). This skate may be hard to find, but searching the Web is the best way to find out which skate shops have a few in stock. [Ultrawheels]
