My skates are Reidell Vixens and I LOVE them. I have Flat-Out rollers - 88's in yellow - and just ordered China Red bearings (my laces and toe stops are red, as is the stitching on my Triple 8 gear and my helmet, so I'm going with the theme lol!). I have an insanely wide foot, and the Vixens do not have a metal or plastic strip on the side so I can make them work.
I am currently skating 4-5 days a week to try and pass my MSR's by February for our bout that month. I figured that with all the hardcore derby workouts I would drop weight like crazy, but I have not lost much at all. I have, however, dropped a size and a half and my body just looks and feels different in a good way!
