As we approach the last few weeks before Christmas, supplies are still pretty limited, but hopefully getting better. Here are some updates that might be helpful as we try to get supplies out for the Christmas rush.
We received two different shipments from Sure-Grip earlier this week. The Malibu skates are now in stock (all sizes) for the first time in a long time. The blue Fame skates arrived, and we still have the yellow Fame skates. The blue ones have outdoor wheels, the yellow have indoor or outdoor wheels (you pick). We received a few of the black Cyclone skates, which can be a good substitute for someone wanting the GT50 skates (which are pretty limited right now).
We have a shipment from Sure-Grip on the way that should arrive about Dec 10. This one will have some Boardwalk skates in there, but we aren’t sure yet what color or sizes will be coming.
We received several new skates from Roller Derby. The Ella is real similar to the Lucy skate, but with a design that matches the popular donut skate bags. The Astra is similar to the U774 Candi Girl, with a silver or gold glitter design. The Lilly is similar to the U772 Candi Girl skates, but with a fade design on the boot. One version is blue and pink, the other is mint and purple. Each of these are in stock now in large quantities.
Roller Derby also has a skate called the Drifter that is similar to the U774 skates, but in solid black and men’s sizing. This shipped to us several weeks ago, and should have arrived mid November, but the trucking company has messed up and delayed this thing for quite a while. It is currently expected early next week (Dec 7) but we are certainly not promising that considering all of the delays it has already experienced. Plus there is a second big shipment from Roller Derby we just found out about. We’re not sure what’s on that one yet, but it should also arrive around Dec 7. Once we know more on either of these we’ll be sure to let everyone know.
Vanilla’s new Renegade quad speed skates are in stock now. We have almost all sizes (red size 6 sold out very quickly) in blue, red, yellow, or pink. This is a great looking skate for the Vanilla fans. Right now most sizes of the Junior skates are sold out, but a big shipment is expected any day now. If you have customers looking for the Junior skates for Christmas please get these on order ahead of time so that you’ll be on the list to receive some once they arrive.
