Works now in NN6; I just had to update the Quicktime player.

Having several pairs definitely is a good solution skates wise. But that's expensive :(
I enjoy skating round town all day in my sneakers (that's a major reason why I don't switch to inlines), doing anything from jumping to cruising (suboptimal surfaces) to (+/- tiny) vert.
I can't carry two or three pairs; I'd have to go by car or subway ...
So I'm still looking for a good compromise, and still think it's possible. Sure, for serious competitive vert skating for example, a specialized skate is probably the only option.
