As skill and ability improve, avid skaters seek faster and high peformance inline skates. Speed skates work best when used by experienced skaters for use in skating inline marathons, or skating long distances.
Inline race boots have a lower cut profile up top around the ankle. This profile is much lower than a recreational or cross-training inline skate and feels a lot different if not having skated before.
The Speed skates are up for customization which will suit accordingly to the user.
