        I was never much of a rollerblader and found these easier to learn on. It still took me a couple of days of not giving up to start enjoying them, but now that I don't look like a fool on them, I really enjoy them! It takes trying a couple pairs of shoes before I found the ones that work best, but I suppose that's natural as everyone will have different shaped feet.

        tried 3 different shoes and the heel slipped every time. The mechanism that contracts to fit the length of the foot does not have enough spring strength so the heel does not stay in place and eventually you are skating with the strap over the top of the foot as the primary leverage. Poor design really. Heard there's a strap for the heel. If so, it should have been included. I skate primarily with traditional skates and sometimes with rollerblades. The ability to do turns, skate backwards, etc... is not what this product was made for. These are for going straight ahead. I found the brake required too much flex of the foot to obtain quick braking. I

        Interesting product but lacking

        By Peter

        from San Diego

        Verified Buyer

        Pros

        • Easy To Put On Sometimes
        • Good for beginners

        Cons

        • Falls off easily
        • New Skating Motion Needed
        • Not Fit Wide Shoes

        Best Uses

          A interesting and innovative product, however it has too many drawbacks. I have wide shoes (3E or 4E) and the heel of my shoes do not fit in the skates. My kids have regular wide shoes and normal shoes and they had problems also. the skates also are flat and the shoes tend to curl up in front causing the skate to fall off easily even while skating. The skate needs better straps to hold it on. Finally how you skate with an ice skate or roller blade does not work with these (nor even how you would skate with an old 4-wheel roller skate). The 3 wheel design and wheels off to the side cause problems with wheels hitting each other, and the skating motion is different because of the 3 wheels - it is harder to push off back and to the side because of the 3rd wheel.

          As I said interesting product but it needs design changes mostly in how it fits shoes and stays on. It just kept falling off my and my 2 kids feet while skating.

                    Best Uses

                    • Cool to look at

                    I was excited when I saw these skates, however once I skated with them they have serious design flaws.

                    1. they say 3 wheel but there's 4 wheels
                    2. they don't flex at all.
                    3. Cross overs will trip you up they are too wide
                    4. They are sluggish and hard to turn.
                    5. Inline is the way to go
                    6. Make sure you can return them if you don't like
                    them.

                    Almost Perfect - Rear Strap Not Included

                    By CSC Skater

                    from NYC

                    Verified Reviewer

                    Pros

                    • Easy to slip on

                    Cons

                    • Strap Design Oversight

                    Best Uses

                      When I first got my S1's I, along with other CS owners had issues with ones foot coming out of the heel bed whenever one lifted the skate. The common thought was that a rear strap was necessary to keep your foot secure in the skate. Cardiff just addressed this issue with an accessory rear strap but honestly the strap should be included with the skate or retrofitted/provided @ no cost as this is a design oversight. It shouldn't be a $20 accessory, imo. I love my Cardiff skates and I'm very happy CSC has provided the rear strap solution but I still feel the skates should not be sold without it.

                            This is a great way of using skates with your own shoes. This is so much easier than using rollerblades.

                                  The skates were a little awkward at first, but I suppose everything is. After using them for a couple of minutes and getting used to them, I was truly able to enjoy them. I LOVE using them! I get compliments on them where ever I go. My wife has the blue pair, so we can go skating together. Would definitely recommend.
