Holland from a different point of view.
The couple on the right were riding old fashioned wooden "frysians".
Those pictures were taken here. I did about ten kilometers and now have blisters. Not in the usual places, but on my shins! Conclusion, I love the blades but hate the shoes. Not all of them, just the part above the ankle. The actual foot area of the shoe was rather nice, but the red swellings on the sides of my shins somehow spoilt the fun. I have already started taking them apart and plucking out some of the so called "ankle support" aka "ankle torture" filling. Fortunately I will be able to fit these blades on to different shoes.
After making this one (the one I got now, in a hurry, at a discount) Raps has developed a better line, of which I have read many good reviews. This time I will take my time and I have the whole summer to choose the right shoe at leasure. Once I find the perfect shoe, I will also be able to equip it with an inline skate wheel set instead of an ice blade. How good is that!
