Information on your Bauer roller skates
Bauer Roller Skates are one of the most
popular Roller boots that were ever made. They came in
all different sizes for both children and adults and were
recognised as a hockey boot for ice hockey players and
roller hockey players alike.
The ice hockey boots were made in the same way, except for
the obvious difference that they came with a blade instead of
trucks and wheels. The blade is curved at both the front and
the back to allow the ice hockey players to go backwards
Bauer Roller skates are
still made and offen seen as Supreme Roller skates, but because
there are so many people who own Bauers they are still used
today by regular skaters and some hockey players too.
Regular skaters can be seen at various meets
from indoor roller rinks to outside parks or seaside organised
events. A popular skating scene is Hide Park, London.
Many of the outdoor skaters tend to use softer
wheels because they are more forgiving on the rough concrete
surfaces, a softer wheel will grip the surface better and is
ideal for the jam skaters (dance skaters).
The indoor skaters however use both soft wheels
for grip or hard wheels for speed depending on their style or
preference. The hockey players would tend to use hard wheels
such as Belair Hockey wheels, these wheels can be made to slide
to make the players stop quicker, this is know as a spay
Apart from the different wheels, there are many
ways to change the look of your skates, you can change the
colour of the laces, the colour of the stoppers, you can even
wear hockey socks or puffers over the top of your skates, these
come in various styles and colours and can give your skate that
The old Bauer roller skates were mianly
made in black plastic, but they did come in some different
colours, the light blue bauer skates were called bauer bravos,
the dark blue bauer skates were called bauer street, the
white pair were called bauer malibu skates and they
did a pair called bauer panthers which were black but the
back part was grey.
