Most likely, the first thing you do upon entering Skate Ranch or Skate-O-Rama is head to the skate rental counter to get your skates. Yes, it is incredibly convenient not to have to worry about bringing your own and just spend the extra $3 for skate rental at these Texas roller rinks. However, there are quite a few advantages to having your own pair of skates as opposed to relying on the roller rink to provide them.
Owning Skates Can Save Money
Purchasing a pair of your own skates is more of an investment up front, but over the long haul, you will end up saving money by not paying the extra $3 for skate rental every time you come skating.
Your Own Skates are More Comfortable
How many times have you had to guess the appropriate skate size at the counter? Then, you try it on and find, while it is perfectly fine, there is just something kind of off about the fit. Maybe you need the skate to be a little wider or you would like one that rests below the ankle. Well, when you purchase your own skates, you can find one that fits your perfectly. Also, have you noticed that once you wear shoes multiple times that they sort of form to fit your foot? Well, the same thing can happen with skates.
You Get To Express Your Personal Style
While our rental skates are perfectly acceptable for hours of skating, they don’t really offer a lot of style. When you buy your own, you can make a fashion statement with your skates. Roller skates come in a variety of different colors, and so do the wheels and laces. In fact, with your own skates, you can change the color of the wheels as often as you want.
If you want to purchase your own skates, we sell them! Next time you are at Skate Ranch or Skate-O-Rama ask to see one of our catalogs and we can place your order. Whether you are looking for speed, inline skates or something eye-catching, we will help you find the perfect skates for your needs and that fit your feet perfectly. Of course, we will always have skates available for rent as well.
