Hi this is Andrea Franklin and I'm an inline skating instructor here in Miami, Florida. In this clip I'm going to teach you how to adjust Rollerblade size or what we call inline skates. Well in the old days we had these. You could take them and adjust the size, clip them on the bottom of your shoe and off you go but I don't think we're going to be skating on these any time soon. So I'm going to show you what we skate on now. On a regular skate there's really no way now to adjust your size. You need to go into a good skate shop such as Fritz's Skate Shop on South Beach on Washington Avenue or your local sports shop and make sure that you get fitted for the right size skate. Don't be afraid to skate around the skate shop for 20 minutes or so just to feel that you don't get any hot spots or blisters or any place on your skate that's going to hurt your feet. There are, however, children's skates that can be adjusted. Kids grow up so quickly that Rollerblade has come up with a skate that will adjust to your child's size. This skate goes from a size 12 to a size 2. So your child can grow with your skate. On this skate you just press this little lever right here and it goes down all the way to a size 12. As your child grows you can adjust the skate and it will grow right with your child. So this is probably the only skate that you can adjust the size because adult skates you are not going to be able to adjust the size. So once again make sure you go into your local skate shop, try on the skates, make sure you wear the right socks when you are trying on the skate and that way you will get fitted well. You'll have the skates that are comfortable for you at the right size. Once again this is Andrea Franklin. Thank you for watching.
