Roller skating seems to be a popular Summer-time activity, and if you’re looking to get into the sport you basically have two options when it comes to equipment. You can go with an inline skate which is most common these days, or stick with the classic ‘wheels in the corners’ design and look like you skated right out of a 70’s roller rink. But there’s good news for those of you who actually prefer traditional roller skates. Not only do these Skorpion Quadline skates look just as cool as modern inline designs, but you can now get a pair that’s been styled by Emporio Armani.
The skates are part of Armani’s EA7 sports wear line, and they’ve given it a sleek black and silver color scheme complete with chrome plated hubs. Unlike most inline skates, the Quadlines are designed to be worn with a pair of shoes and feature independent spring suspension on every wheel for a smooth ride over rough terrain. Unfortunately Armani fans might be upset to hear they won’t be able to shell out $425 for a pair since they seem to be sold out at the moment. But you can still get a regular pair of Quadlines from Skorpion for about $180.
