The Alkali RPD Comp Roller Hockey Skates are an excellent middle of the pack skate with a gentle price tag. The RPD Crew Skate features a stiffer AEPE Molded Quarter Package, a one-piece Labeda Movement Chassis and the new Labeda RPG Gripper Wheels.
Alkali showcases the Labeda Movement Chassis that was designed to work hand in hand with the Maximum Power Transfer outsole. Seen when looking at the bottom of the skate, the second wheel from the toe is recessed into the boot to give players a lower center of gravity, a greatly improved turning radius, a better overall balanced feel and a more efficient energy transfer process through each stride. Also helping with speed is the Abec 9 bearings sitting in the dual urethane core Labeda RPG wheels that can be used indoors and outdoors. The new Alkali Pro Roller Last is widened in the forefoot by 2 mm, providing even more comfort and helps to accommodate more foot sizes.

Comments: I've always been a mission/Bauer guy. Always on the hi-lo set up. These were my first all 80 mm skate, and it took me a second but now am in love with them. Baked them to my foot threw some waxed laces on and they were perfect! the only thing to make the skate better would for it to be a little stiffer for my liking, but that is just me nit picking. The only con i have for this skate is on my right skate the back wheel ripped from the inside of the rim if you will? It is the Labeda RPG wheel. i am a fan of labeda but this set me back a step i have only been on them twice on sport court and that happened! Pretty pissed about that!

Comments: I decided to try these skates after 15 years of using Mission brand skates. I have wide forefeet but not wide feet in general, so it has always been hard for me to get skate fit. These skates have been the best fitting pair I've ever had. Heat molding was easy. I baked them in a conventional oven on a baking tray. I was really impressed by how hard and solid the newly molded boots were. They boot quality is that of much more expensive skates from other brands.

Comments: I tried 2 other brands of skates I found in local sporting goods stores, and I had a tough time using them,since I haven't played online hockey in over 18 years, I thought maybe I was just out of practice. I had an issue with my left foot feeling off balance,as well as severe ankle and pains in my feet. From being frustrated I took a two week break from skate shopping, then I reviewed your videos on various brands of skates. After talking with one of your representatives, I was swayed into trying these Alkali RPD Comps. I went down 1 and a half shoe sizes as advised by this person. When I got the skates they felt a bit snug in the toe box, but otherwise comfortable and sturdy. When i hit the roller rink (I haven't started hockey yet, just obtained all my gear) I was pleasantly surprised that my left foot was no longer unstable, and I barely had to stride to make myself move. When I did try to push I was passing people that I couldn't even keep up with weeks ago. I attribute that to the abec 9's. Where as I felt unstable and wobbly before, now I was confidently racing around, crossing over and speeding the curves like the old days. I no longer felt the toe box and these Alakli's already feel "broken in", but I may just oven heat fit them any way. Can't wait to play my first game, all I can say is, I am one happy customer, thanks Inline Warehouse!!!
