Roller Blades Vs Roller Skates

Learn the difference between rollerblades and rollerskates

Compared to roller skates, rollerblades have taller, more supportive boots. The wheels on rollerblades stay in line (one behind the other) while the wheels on roller skates have a 2 x 2 arrangement, 2 wheels at the front, and 2 wheels at the rear.

A rollerskate is basically a boot mounted on two skateboard-like trucks that support a set of four wheels. These skates look like typical shoes or everyday lifestyle boots
