The Hottest Skates To Buy Now


The Luna boot was introduced by VNLA in late 2022, but not everyone was able to get their hands on a pair because popular sizes sold fast! Skaters have been captivated by the gorgeous oil slick hardware accents that are a striking contrast to the genuine black suede uppers.

The Luna is available in several indoor and outdoor set ups, ranging from $199.99-$359.99 depending on the plate and wheels. With so many options available, the Luna is a great option for skaters who want a high-top, structured boot with a look that turns heads, whether they are beginner or advance.

The Luna took the skating world by storm in 2023 as word got out that this boot functions just as great as it looks.



VNLA Á La Mode

The Á La Mode boot is the same structured, high-top suede boot as the LUNA, but comes in 5 creamy colors inspired by frozen confections: Pistachio (green), Creamsicle (orange), Mocha (brown), Blue Moon and Ube (purple). Skaters who want a colored suede boot but are tired of seeing the same shades will find the Á La Mode to be a refreshing treat!

The Á La Mode is available with either outdoor Jelly Roll wheels by Backspin or with indoor white Velvet wheels by Sure-Grip. Skaters can also choose between a white VNLA Gorilla nylon plate or a white Avanti Magnesium plate ($199.99-$359.99).

If you haven’t already seen the Á La Mode at your local rink or skate park, we think you will be seeing them a lot in 2024! Since dropping in September, they quickly shot up to our #1 selling skate. As the 5-star reviews roll in, we can see the A La Mode is becoming an instant classic.
