Inline skating - problem that I don't understand

Dear all,

My wife and I bought a pair of inline skates which were meant to be for beginners (hers are 70mm, mine are 82 mm); but when we're skating, after 20-30 minutes these rollerblades start to hurt the bottom of our feet.
What should we do? Are we doing something wrong, or do we have issues with the rollerblades? We really want to learn this, so any help will be much appreciated.

Thanks,

"Doctor Doctor, I think I broke my arm in 3 places..."

"Doctor Doctor , my arm hurts when I do this..."

..............."Well don't do it then..."



Sorry, couldn't resist.

You can try to bind it a bit loose except around the ankles.

As for a beginner that's normal. It takes sometimes till the shoe fits and it takes sometime to train your feet to stabilize without much effort.

If it hurts too much go back to the shop and try alternative skates.

And as you live in skaters paradise take a beginners course, people there will have plenty of advice.

Agreed, I have the same issue with ice-skating when the lower boot is tighter, the foot gets squeezed horizontally unnaturally for the average walking foot (especially flat-footed persona).

It gets less intense with repeated use, but it definitely sounds like the skate is too tight on the lower foot area

Re: Inline skating - problem that I don't understand

Thank you very much for all the inputs, we'll keep on doing it.
We also try to go where people skate, in order to take some advices, but unfortunately we didn't have enough luck with it, they don't seem to be very helpful in this matter, sometimes we were ignored and sometimes people said they don't have time for us.

Anyway, it looks like we're on the right track.

All the best,
