The Kinetic: The Best Exercise Skate From K2

The K2 Kinetic 80 Skates are specifically designed with women in mind. These skates have a great aesthetic design and coloration that really makes them jump out when looked at.

The sharp styling of these K2 skates is definitely worth considering. Add this to a great overall performance, and you may end up loving these, which is why I decided to create a review for the skates.

Aesthetic Beauty

The fact that these are soft shelled also adds a bit of interesting design aesthetic to these skates.

Many of the modern inline skates on the market today have a tendency to have a harder exterior. While this is excellent for support, it can make many skates look bulky and rigid. 

The K2 Skate Women's Kinetic 80 Inline Skates, on the other hand, looks stylish and soft, which some riders may like.

The wheels are nice and large and are made of transparent polyurethane, which also looks very attractive.

Finally, who doesn't like pink and black? These skates are colored and designed in such a way that they'll go well with just about any ensemble. In fact, they kind of look like sneakers.

Level of Support

The support is very strong on these skates. Firstly, these have very secure laces that can be tightened strongly so that the skates fit snugly on your feet.

Secondly, the straps that are positioned across the top of the foot and the top of the shoe are really easy to secure so that you have a very tight fit.

What it's Built for

What makes these skates so excellent is the fact that they are great for beginners, intermediate skaters, or even skate pros.

The only feature that serves as a prerequisite is the fact that these are for women. For beginners, the soft frame makes these skates very easy to maneuver and control.

The great shock absorption system also makes it fairly easy to go over more rough terrain and uneven pavement.

The fact that these aren't hard shell adds a bit more calorie burning, which makes them perfect for those who are trying to use inline skating as a way to get extra exercise.

Level of Maneuverability & Control

While you won't have the stability that a hard shell case provides when it comes to hard turning, these K2 skates gain more than a bit of maneuverability due to their soft design.

With these, you'll be able to lean in more to your turns so that they can be sharper. Also, if you are the type who does hockey-style stops, I find this type of stopping to be pretty easy on these skates.

The stopping is also very nice on these; there is a large stopper on the base of the inline section that is fairly easy to brake with.

  • Key Advantages
  • Disadvantages
  • As a pair of soft skates, these aren't for every type of skater. Your foot will flex more in these.
  • Those who prefer a hard shell exterior will find that these have less support, but they may provide a higher degree of maneuverability.
  • The lace up can be hard to secure at times.
  • These have a tendency to run a little bigger than many inline skates, so you may have some difficulty finding the perfect size for your feet.

The Bottom Line

Women have some great choices when it comes to inline skates. Even considering this, these K2 Skate Women's Kinetic 80 skates have a fairly unique style to them that makes them stand out somewhat.

If you are looking for a relatively inexpensive set of skates to use while you are out at the park or on a commute, I suggest giving these a try.
