    How many skates do you go through a year?

    Last year I went through like 8. Paid for 6 pairs and traded for two.

    This year I went through 5 already, bought three pairs two traded.
    This year I had Remz OS2, Farmer 3s, Stockwell 2s, Nimhs (skated for like 20 minutes hated every second of it so it doesn't count as 6 but whatever), Carbons, and currently Icon2s.

    I'm probrally buying new skates within the next two weeks, white OS3s or another pair of Farmer 3s.

    Anyway point is I go through a lot of skates because well, I have a job now so I can afford to blow it away on my favorite hobby.

    What about you faggots?

    wuckin it.

      two pairs at the most, i skate maybe 4 times every 2 weeks if i'm lucky.
      last year i went through 2 pairs of basic 08, the year before that, 1 pair razors genesys and remz 07twos. i just ordered farmer threes, that'll be my new fix.

          1 skate per 2 years for me lately.

          That fucking Reed kid has already had like 12 skates in just 7 months. He doesn't even give them a chance to get broken in.

            Maybe 1 or 2 now that I've calmed down and I like getting comfortable on skates. This year it was 3 though. Nimh V2's from last year, then black Carbons, then white Carbons. I'll probably be on these white Carbons for quite some time though.

              I've had my current pair for just over a year. Got 'em early June of last year. They're beyond fucked up, too. I've got like three different holes in the soul plates and frames.

                I usually get 4-5 pairs a year but I used to trade skates a lot, brand new I got one or two a year and it was for christmas and sometime birthday but as of last year that stopped happening. Besides Im pretty happy with the valos I got a couple months ago so this might be the first pair of skates that I skate until they die, unless I get a job soon.

                                    Serious. Even back when my mom was buying my skates for me, there was no way in Hell I was getting more than one pair a year.

                                      I only got one skate and a bunch of dumb shit from this shop that I didn't even want. That was about the time that I started fading out of skating for a few years, so when I lost contact with my shop sponsor that was the end of the Salomon shit.

                                                      Also, i skate 2-5 times a week.

                                                      Before I started working it was always two skates a year. Christmas and my birthday.

                                                      But I've been buying my own skates since i was 16.

                                                      wuckin it.

                                                        i have used the same 3 pairs of K2s last for the last 5 years. just kept rotating through them.

                                                        i used to buy one pair per year, but i skate a lot of park so there's not that much wear and tear.

                                                          Um...I've bought probably 3 pairs this year. Wilsons, Razor G8s and Remz OS2s. Got a few from trading, USDs, Razors Dre Powells and maybe something else I forget. I'm just skating razors now though.

                                                              I probably buy 5-10 pairs a year if you average all of the parts and shit I've bought. I've only seriously skated about 5 pairs in my 7 years. I wonder if there is anyone who, for instance, bought an old pair of Shimas or something and has been replacing the soles for a decade on the same pair of skates.
                                                              Remember: "It is better to keep your [hands still] and appear stupid than to [respond] and remove all doubt."

                                                                            For me, it used to be like 3 or maybe 4 pairs a year, now it's about one or 1.5.

Did you just not like both pairs and got another or do you just have the money to spend foolishly? I had the Thompsons for 4-5 years never replaced anything but wheels and they were one of the best skates if not the best skates I have ever had. I did just get carbons and it is awesome to get new skates but people saying 5-7 skates a year, are you fucking serious .

                                                                                    Anyway, I give my old skates to the local youngsters.

                                                                                    I think I may have gotten like 20+ kids skating but not sure if they stuck with it.

                                                                                    wuckin it.
