Review of Snow White Inline Figure Skates

Figure Skating Is Possible On Dry Land

Snow White Inline Figure Skates
(Shu Sheng Du)

Snow White inline figure skates are for the serious artistic in-line figure skater or for anyone who wishes to do what is done on the ice on inline skates. The product is manufactured by Arthur Lee of Double L's International. The company is based in Taiwan. The company's goal is to promote inline artistic skating.

Those who have tried Snow Whites say they are able to do spins and jumps with ease. Also, they are very light and the short frame makes it possible to do ice dances.

Spinning can be delightful on Snow Whites, but it may take time to figure out where the "sweet spot" is. When a skater attempts a sit spin, he or she may have to force his or her weight a bit forward. Camel spins feel so much like camel spins feel on the ice.

Although Snow White skates are made in China, there are Snow White skate distributors all over the world. Some countries where Snow White skates are available for purchase include Argentina, Australia, Austria, Benelux, Brazil, China, Czech and Slovakia, France, Georgia, Germany, Hong Kong, India, Iran, Italy, Japan, Malaysia, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Russia, Singapore, Spain, Switzerland, Taiwan, Ukraine, United Kingdom, and the USA.

Those who are interested in artistic inline figure skating will find that Snow White inline figure skates are the most popular and are one of the most accepted inline figure skates in the artistic roller skating world.

Three wheels, a toe stop, and a rockered design make the skate lighter than The PIC® Skate which is the most popular inline figure skate among ice skaters.
