What customers say about "Key Specs"
Rollerblade Fusion 84 Men's GM Bio-Plastic Urban Skate
  • I use them from going with my kids to cruising to work through a city to trail exercise riding.
  • I almost felt off balance they were so much faster and smoother than my old ones.
  • These are awesome skates if you use them one hour or less. Every time I use them for longer periods I get big blisters in both my ankles to the point that I can't skate for at least 3 days.
  • The Rollerblade Men's Fusion 84 GM Bio-Plastic Urban Skate are perfect for skating in different surfaces.
  • These are exactly like ones i use to ride when i was younger! Brings back lots of memories and they are a great source for exercise.
Rollerblade Twister 80 Men's Urban Skate
  • I skate urban and indoors 3 to 4 hours at a time and these skates handle everything I throw at them.
  • I skate on a very busy college campus and never have a problem getting them to do what I want them to.
  • The small wheelbase allow for quick turns and high manueverabilty in urban environments.
  • I personally use them for daily rides in the city and aggressive skatepark vert sessions.
  • The 85A wheels make it so that you can use them for a much longer time.

What customers say about "Design"
Rollerblade Fusion 84 Men's GM Bio-Plastic Urban Skate
  • These is one defect on these which is the fact that you ONLY have the Velcro to close them (the laces are pretty useless actually) so your ankle is not properly held as it could with other models
  • But the lacing is very customizable and aluminum frame very solid.
  • Still these are great skates for the first hour. The shock dampener works really well, the wheels / bearings are quiet and fast, they roll very smooth.
  • The skates give perfect maneuverability and the SG9 high precision bearings with 84mm 84A wheels are really fast.
Rollerblade Twister 80 Men's Urban Skate
  • Perfect wheel size and hardness and durability.
  • I'm a female, but I bough the men's version for the colors and I went one size down and they fit PERFECT!
  • Love the frame and the wheels. Sturdy and fast.
  • These skates offer a plastic shell, decent wheels and a good look.
  • The wheels and frame seem sturdy. The laces are good.

What customers say about "Features"
Rollerblade Fusion 84 Men's GM Bio-Plastic Urban Skate
  • For the rest very rapid and comfortable. My normal shoe size is 9/9.5 and I took 10.5 which is just perfect so do NOT hesitate to take 1 number above your normal shoe size (you don't want them to be small....believe me!)
  • I wear a wide shoe and these are comfortable still and true to shoe size.
  • These skates fit perfectly! I wear a size 10.5 in shoes and was advised to get a half size higher for skates so I got the size 11 and they are super comfortable.
  • I personally like the velcro straps a lot, and overall these skates look and feel great (for the first hour that is).
  • Comfortable fit even though I'm not a Velcro strap guy it does the job.
  • The size is untrue, it was a Tight fit and ankle is not secure, the laces should go all the way up if it is designed with a velcro strap.
Rollerblade Twister 80 Men's Urban Skate
  • Awesome urban skates! Fit true to shoes size!
  • The skates performed great, great bearings i was able to cruise very long distances with minimal pedaling.
  • I found the skates very comfortable no blisters or lace bite. Easy to put on and easy to take off.
  • These are built like a tank, relatively light and the wheels and bearings are smooth.
