As a dog owner I must admit, I really enjoy watching "Cesar Milan - The Dog Whisperer." I'm not saying that I agree with everything he does, but I do LOVE that he encourages dog owners to exercise with their pets. He's not talking about casual walks in the park either. He's into heart pumping, muscle moving, panting and sweating. I'm into that too.
LandRoller skates are great because the oversized wheels allow you to ride over small obstacles, like cracks and bumps, with ease. The wheels are positioned on the side providing more control so you can make tighter turns.
The pair pictured on top (to the right) are Women's Terra 9 LandRollers ( $199.99) and the angled wheels help provide a smooth and stable skating experience.
The pair pictured on the bottom are unisex LandRollers - Apolo Anton Ohno Limited Edition Skates. These are a bit more expensive ($219.99), but you're paying for Apolo's name and a limited edition product, only a few hundred will be sold. You might only be familiar with Apolo as the latest Dancing with the Stars champion, but he made his name at the Olympics by winning two golds for short track speed skating. The skates bearing his name are made for speed - you don't have to waste time tying up your laces. You just pull the laces tight and Velcro them in place. These also have that amazing angled wheel technology.
These skates tend to run on the snug side, so order them in the largest shoe size you normally wear (that means if you sometimes wear an 8 1/2 and sometimes wear an 8, choose a size 8 1/2).
If you like rollerblading with inline skates, you'll definitely want to try a pair of LandRollers. If you're a beginner to skating, these skates will make it easier to learn since they provide a more stable, smoother, and quieter ride.
