Roller Derbyâ€™s Lite Up Laces have been pretty popular.Â Theyâ€™re currently in 36â€ and 45â€ lengths, but theyâ€™re adding a 72â€ soon.Â Theyâ€™re also going to start offering all sizes in pink.
We received a new shipment of metal skate cases.Â A lot of rinks donâ€™t sell skate cases.Â But the ones that do tend to sell a lot of them.Â Here is the current color list.Â Remember that most years a few colors sell out quick, and they only run these once a year:
Pink, light pink, purple, light blue, lilac, white with white trim, white with purple trim, white with blue trim, white with black trim, olive, black, navy, lime green, mint (new), coral (new), blue, green, yellow, chocolate, orange, maroon, teal, hexagon, polka dot, tie dye, posey, camo, zebra with lime, zebra with black, zebra with red, all zebra, and zebra with pink.
Sure-Grip is showing two new skates.Â The Cyclone is a speed skate that will be coming in several bright colors that theyâ€™re promoting as â€œThe Best $99 Retail Skate In Americaâ€.Â The GT-50 Plus is similar in quality to the GT-50 skate, but the sole of the skate has LEDâ€ˆlights built into it.Â Each skate has several different color options that you select by pressing a button inside the shoe.Â It recharges with a USBâ€ˆcord.Â The Cyclone has a tentative ETAâ€ˆof late October.Â The GT-50 Plus is going to be later, hopefully in December.Â Weâ€™ll have much more on both of these as soon as details are available.
Roller Derbyâ€™s Stomp Factor 5 skates are another speed skate option with bright colored boots.Â These are available now.Â They look great all the time, but especially under black lights.Â Roller Derby is also working on a light up skate with an LEDâ€ˆlight built on the underside of the sole.Â Weâ€™ll have more details on this one as soon as theyâ€™re ready.
Vanillaâ€™s newest version of the Junior skate is called the Code Red.Â It is pretty similar to the Denim skate, except instead of the traditional blue color of denim it is red.Â They are unloading the boxes right now, all sizes are in stock.Â So if youâ€™re coming to the tradeshow, take a pair home with you.
