|: I think the classic rollerskate system will live forever, no matter if the VSK8 gets popular or not.
In hope so, too. I like too see good innovations, too. I also like inlines (and actually prefer them for hockey) but classical roller skates are more fun for crusing and dedicated vert skates are better suited to ramp skating (at least for me) than inlines.
: Vert skates built in the classic system/design could be on more shelves, just as the VSK8 could hit the shelves.
I doubt it. Most kids just don't skate vert. They skate street and a few of them skate mini ramps. Hardly anyone goes fot the big ramps.
