The friends that have been with us from the beginning know us as pictured above, Esther on her Riedells and me on a Penny board, cruising though the Vondelpark and Barcelona.

That's how it all started,

In the meantime, things have changed a lot obviously, we started selling Rollerskates and I started to have 4 wheels per foot instead of 4 on a nylon board.

But the love for the simple and small board never faded, because we both really like the smalll boards from Australia, we decided to keep a limited stock of them.

Have a look at them in our 'Ready to Roll' section.

Hi everyone, 

We would like to inform you about our shop during these unsettling times.  

Product availability: 

Our main suppliers of rollerskate products are based in the United States and Italy. Both Riedell and Roll Line had to close their factories down due to the Corona virus. This means that production lines are down and we don’t know for how long. We can place orders but production time will be significantly longer than usual. We can still order some items that they have in stock and we have a nice collection of skate products over here in Amsterdam. Especially if you need stuff like bearings, tools, laces, jam plugs, toe st...

Ever since we became Riedell dealers we have been dreaming of visiting the rollerskate factory. But to take a plane all the way from Amsterdam to Red Wing Minnesota just seemed a bit too much. When we decided to take a sabbatical in Canada Marcel immediately said…. ‘now we can go to Red Wing!!’ And so we did.. Read more about our experiences in this blog.

Although it’s a lot closer to Calgary then to Amsterdam, it’s still a two hour flight and it felt like a huge adventure. We were anxious to see an all American town but most of all see the rollerskates manufacturing process and to meet the people behind this brand. We landed in M...

Hi everyone, 

We all know how it feels to travel, broaden your horizon and explore the world. We love those things too so we decided to take a sabbatical! Together with our little girl who is now 4 yrs old, we will be spending some time in Canada to be with family and to take a prolonged vacation. We will leave right after the Es Quint event, on the 14th of february 2018 and we will be back on the 15th of May 2018 (just in time for the event in May!).

During our absence there will be limited options to purchase rollerskate gear from Ginger Skates, we will update you on how and where later. 

But for now, the next few w...

Hi everyone! 

Although I’m crazy in love with my Riedell 172 rhythm skates with Arius Platinum plates, I couldn't resist getting a pair of the all new Moxi Jack boots. I mounted them on Riedells high end Powerdyne Reactor Pro plate, added the Radar Donut wheels 78A and hit the streets of Barcelona. Here’s my review! 

Street skating: 

Streetskating with Jack was fantastic.. it made me go faster and do more fun things, like jump from pavements at high speeds and shifting a lot from going backwards and forwards at a pretty high speed (I normally don’t have the guts to do that). I guess that’s all in line with the Moxi message: ‘feel fr...

We are really happy to announce there is a new plate on our shelves!

Its the all new Reactor Fuse, placed between the 185 euro Neo and the 65 euro Thrust, for 99 euros it's yours!

Powerdyne tried to make a stiff en strong plate for a very reasonable price. Where a nylon plate flexes more and the more expensive aluminium is very stiff, for the Fuse they used a new fiberglass composite.

The other components used on this plates are basically the same as the rest of the Reactor series, so 10 degree kingpin angle, kingpins are made of solid 7075 aluminium, high rebound urethane cushions compatible with the Magic Cushions.

The plate is ava...

Yes!!! Now also available at Ginger Skates in Amsterdam: the new Moxi Jack boot! We already had a peek at the ISPO sports fair in Munchen and we can say... this boot is really something! Because it has more support we think it's also very suitable for rhythm skating. The price is Eur. 319,- for boot-only and the standard color is this gorgeous teal. You can upgrade to one of the other Moxi colors for the regular Color lab fee of Eur. 75,-

As some of you may already know, the new Moxi Jack boot is on its way! We got a preview of this very nice boot and we're sharing the pictures we made this spring when we met Michelle "Estrojen" Steilen, the lady behind the Moxi skate.

We have to say, we expect a lot from this boot. Made for skateparks it's a lot sturdier than the original Moxi, the tongue is made of the Riedell characteristic shearling material and it has a 'hook' to hold your laces in place.

You can recognize the new boot by the big M on the backstay. It comes in teal, but will be customizable in all Moxi colors.

Price: to be announced.
