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

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.
We are very pleased to announce that from now on we can also provide the finest quality products from Roll-Line! We added a selection of plates to our website but when you are interested in other Roll-Line products we can also order these.
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!
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...
