Rollerblading was the shit in the '90s, and if anyone tells you otherwise, they probably just had a deprived childhood. Like, there wasn't anything cooler than gliding smoothly into the arcade or mall with your whole squad.
Those days are long gone and the subculture of inline skating is basically on its last wheel. But could there be a comeback in the works thanks to the influence of sneakerheads? Maybe.
Take a look at these "Concord" Air Jordan XI-inspired rollerblades made by Universal Skate Design for professional rider Franky Morales. Dubbed the Franky Morales Carbon 3, the skates incorporate signature elements from the "Concord" XIs, including the black patent leather, white ballistic nylon, and just the overall color-blocking. Even the rollerblades' frame has this translucent/icy look going on.
If this is enough to get you back in the rollerblading game, you can cop a pair here for $440.
