the heel portion of the skates was uncomfortable at first but is getting better (I have wide feet)
these skates are great
i purchased the Alexix X Pro skates to replace an aging pair of K2 Flights. They are comfortable, fast and great for the paved trail near my place. the only down side are the 2 bolts near the heel of the skate. i have wide feet in general and the two bolts rubbed and vibrated during my first few outings. its better now that the skates have loosened up.
I did my homework in researching before buying and I saw and read about the K2 brand and got these. Customer support was amazing and shipping super fast! The fit of these skates are true size. The comfort is beyond and I have skated for hours with these on and I am one very happy girl! I will buy this brand forever! Thank you Summit!!
My first and last skates were a pair of K2 ones back in the late 90s and I loved them. I wanted to get back into skating for fitness again so I decided to get another pair of K2 skates. I was deciding between these and the Boa ones which were a little more expensive ($200). I had contacted customer service who told me they were very similar and I could go with these and would be happy with them. He was right! I love them! I have skated several times in them, about 7 miles each time. I skate on paved trails, similar to roads in sections. I have no problem blading in them, they are comfortable and roll easy. They seem to fit true to size. I'm kind of weird though because I have 2 different sized feet lol (after having kids). So in one I'm a 8 1/2 and the other I'm a 9. I ordered a 9 and they fit very well. I'm so happy I bought these skates. I had forgotten how much I enjoyed rollerblading. If you want a pair of great skates for causal/fitness skating but don't want to spend a lot of money get these.
I wore these out rollerblading for about 2 hours the first day. I didn't experience any discomfort, and I was trying to keep up with a much more experienced friend. My feet were fine and comfortable. After about an hour, the top edge of the left boot was cutting into my calf but that's because I'm learning to break by dragging that leg, and I'm a super beginner--i.e. I was probably doing it wrong and haven't built up any resistance to pressure there.
It seems like I could go pretty fast if I wanted to--most of the limitations were that I grew up skiing and my instinct was to do the pizza/pie to slow (it does not, of course, work for rollerblading), so I was afraid to go fast and potentially get out of control--we did get some good speed on some long flat stretches.
A:These skates are going to be very light offering a metal alloy frame. The Alexis X Pro and the Alexis X Boa are nearly similar and the only differences is the closure system of the skates so the weight difference between the two is going to be very minimal.

Q: My last pair of skates (purchased several years ago) were the K2 Flight ALX-W. From the get-go, they caused sore spots or bruising on the insides of my legs above the ankles no matter how padded my socks were. I hoped that problem would go away with time, once they were broken in, so I just put up with it, and it never did. My first pair were a different brand and I didn't have that problem. Therefore, I'm reluctant to try this brand again. Can someone from K2 tell me how this boot compares? I usually skate for fitness on a paved greenway, probably 2-5 miles. Is it possible I just had the wrong size? TIA
A:I am not affiliated with K2 but I do skate with K2 skates and have fitted many pairs in my life as a skate shop employee. It sounds like you had an incorrect size because an incorrectly sized skate will cause all the issues you stated you experienced. Skates are meant to fit snug and can be taken the same size or a 1/2 size smaller than your standard athletic shoe size. When sized correctly your foot will not move around inside the skate's boot, this movement in a skate too big is what causes blisters and sore spots. K2 is one of the top names in inline skates and offer great padding, comfort and performance and I highly recommend them.
