I have be "ogling" these since I learned of the Hinged skate and wonder what anyone might think or have had any experience.?????

I think if they start anodizing in different colors (like Blue or orange) I will just have to get them for the "cool" factor.

But with my knee and lower back starting to feel funny I am looking at the Hinged boot with a lot of hope and I wonder if I should look at this for a blade solution too. ?? I think Double stars are beyond what I will need now anyway, and still in good shape (maybe I could sell them), so I just want to see if anyone likes the idea or it is "gimmicky."

And do the Jacksons have a similar fit to the Riedells?
