Chuffed Skates Guide! Learn about our different skate models.

If you are on the hunt for the perfect pair of Chuffed Skates for you, you might've been scrolling through our website already and seen all kinds of different names: CRUISER, WANDERER, WANDERER PLUS, PRO BOOT.....But what do they mean?

No matter if you are a beginner, intermediate or advanced skater, Chuffed Skates has got your back (and your feet!) covered with an amazing lineup of roller skates. Let's roll into the details of each one and find out which might be the best fit for you!

  1. CRUISER SKATES: The perfect beginner roller skate.

Not all beginner roller skates are created equally! Through the years, we've seen tons of beginners fall for awfully made roller-skate-nightmares: non adjustable screwed toe stops, hard plastic wheels, bearings that barely roll... Which is why we decided to create a budget, beginner friendly skate that also offers quality and comfort: and so the Chuffed Cruiser Skates were born! These bad boys are perfect for casual riders who want a smooth and easy ride. Chuffed Cruisers come in a wider size range (2-11) to fit even smaller feet than our other models (so they are great for kids too!). 

The vinyl boot offers a more budget friendly option than other suede and leather skates, but we made sure to add plenty of padding inside the boot and tongue offering comfort straight out of the box and through hours of skating! The Cruiser Skates come with a super light but sturdy nylon plate with quality polyurethane adjustable toe stops. The soft wheels and ABEC 7 bearings ensure a buttery-smooth roll with each stride. The Cruiser Skate will quickly become your go-to choice for laid-back adventures.

  1. WANDERER SKATES: Classic and reliable.

If nostalgia hits you like a ton of vintage bricks, the Wanderer Skates are right up your alley! These classic suede skates ooze retro vibes and our beautiful selection of colours are sure to turn heads at the rink or the park. The Burgundy and Olive Green models have a special place in our hearts as they are the first 2 roller skates we ever released at Chuffed!

But these aren't just a pretty pair of retro skates; the Wanderer skates are equipped with high quality components for a reliable and enjoyable ride. They feature a suede roller skate boot with medium support, making them an ideal lifestyle skate, perfect for those who want to have a quality skate from the get go. Wanderer Skates are also good for intermediate and advanced roller skaters who prefer a roller skate boot that allows more ankle movements and overall comfort.

These skates come as a complete set up, with an aluminium alloy plate that's suitable for recreational and dance skating, and even some mellow park skating. This plate comes with an adjustable polyurethane toe stop and hybrid wheels for indoor/outdoor use are included. 

  1. WANDERER PLUS: Classic with a Boost

Ready to kick it up a notch? The Wanderer Plus Skates take everything you love about the classic Wanderers and elevate it to the next level. Born from our skate collab with Hell On Quads, the Wanderer Plus is a skate that will bring a quality but affordable option to Latin American skaters, while also ticking the boxes for skaters world wide. 

These skates come with improved ankle support, and have been designed to be an awesome set up straight out of the box, ideal for beginner and intermediate park skaters, & all levels cruise & jam skating. 

And speaking of support... By buying these roller skates you are directly supporting the roller skate community in Latin American countries by subsidising a portion of the price for them. Cool huh?

  1. PRO BOOTS: because everyone should be able to skate like a pro!

Calling all thrill-seekers and advanced skaters – the Pro Boots are here to help you unleash your full skating potential! These skates are designed in collaboration with the Pro Skaters behind each model, who receive a royalty from every set sold. On top of that, for every pair sold we donate $10 to the skater's not for profit of choice - because sharing is caring!

The Pro Boots and are built to bear high impact, and provide the support needed for advanced manoeuvres and tricks. The boots offer a FIRM or EXTRA FIRM support, depending on the Pro Skater's choice, and they are suitable for both park and dance skating. These skates come as a boot only so you can mount it to your hardware of choice.

At Chuffed Skates, we're not just passionate about the skates we sell; we're dedicated to ensuring that you find the perfect pair to suit your style and skill level. You can also give our skate-matcher a go to see your personalised suggested skates! Whether you're a chilled-out cruiser, a wanderer at heart, an aspiring pro, or a seasoned skating sensation, we've got a skate that's tailor-made for you!

Before you rush off to grab your dream skates, here's a friendly reminder: always wear appropriate safety gear - coz safety is sexy! Let's keep the fun rolling without any bumps, breaks, or bruises.
