The K2 Alexis 80 is a great first skate for fitness skating, but is also enough skate for the intermediate skater looking for an inexpensive skate. The Alexis 80 mixes K2's patented Softboot technology with a stability cuff offering a comfortable fit with the proper amount of support. Inside the Softboot is an antimicrobial footbed boasting arch support which will offer great support and will work as a foundation to prevent foot pain when skating. An ABEC 5 bearing fits into an 80mm wheel giving a smooth roll that will take on chattery pavement with ease but won't be too much to handle for less experienced skaters. Your inline skating career doesn't have to start with the K2 Alexis 80 women's inline skates but it definitely would be a great place to start.
