Introducing the Evolution boot...
The newest low-top boot by VNLA (Vanilla) features genuine leather uppers and black suede accents for a sleek, high-class look that is truly the evolution of style. The padded Cambrelle lining is both abrasion and water-resistant and made from breathable synthetic fibers to keep your feet dry. The laces are hidden by a leather power strap to finish the clean look of the Evolution boot.
The Gorilla skate plates are made from high-impact nylon that won't weigh you down and come with a lifetime warranty against breakage. The red anodized aluminum trucks add a splash of unexpected color. They are ultra-durable and feature 5-degree action to increase stability, with specially designed cone-shaped cushions to increase response.
Backspin Remix wheels are the lightest aluminum hubbed wheels on the market. A new bonding compound has been added by Backspin to secure the hand-poured urethane to the aircraft aluminum hub. They are 62mm x 42mm and come complete with VNLA Reaction ABEC-9 bearings. Choose between white (97A) or black (92A).
Finish your skate with your choice of mini-adjustable toe stops or VNLA round jam plugs. This skate is ideal for speed or jam-style skating.

Im a beginner skater, only been skating for a few months, but I’ve tried the VNLA eclipse skates, with fame wheels (95a - 57mm? 58mm?) and thought they were great until i got these VNLA Evolution skates … i love love love these, not sure if its the heel, (or lack there of) or the wheels (speed wheels, 97a), but when i used these for the first time, things felt very natural to me. I was able to literally do whatever moves came to mind with no resistance, and i felt free with my skating. Highly recommend , but again , this is coming from a beginner skater - and I’ve only ever used rentals, the VNLA eclipse, oh and i had the Ridell R3 speed skates before, but these by far were the smoothest, most comfortable skate I’ve had so far - ill be using this until they fall apart - Also, my foot measures from heel to toe at 10 and 14/16th of an inch. I wear a size 9 in men (US), and i tried the size 10m for these skates, and they were too small - so small my toe couldn’t even lay flat inside the skate. I went up to a 10.5m and they fit just fine. When i slam my heel to the back of the skate, i have a little bit of room in the front , so i used that to indicate that i have the right size. No complaints about the skate, except that mine came with a pretty big sized scuff on both of the boots … but I’m so in love with the skate i just didn’t make a big fuss about it or bother sending them back because id rather have them now and skate with them then to have to wait another two weeks to get a replacement pair :(
I am skating for almost a year now. Previously used a cheap beginner skate for a year. After a year I decided to upgrade and then I noticed many skaters in the rink where were using VNLA. After long research I decided to go with VNLA evolution boot. I normally wear size 8.5. This booth runs 1 size small, so i bought 9.5 and it is a perfect fit for me. Boot provides lot of support for the ankles and the wheels are so smooth and provides a longer roll. I noticed that VNLA bearing is not great when I compared with roller bones, so I switched to Roller bones. Definitely VNLA should improve their bearings. I would definitely recommend this skate to anyone. Its slightly heavy, but that is really helpful for me and provides lot of support.
