WIFA Rollschuhe FAQ
I AM A RECREATIONAL ROLLER SKATER
What do I want? I want to have fun learning dance steps (jam skating), perform smaller jumps in my choreography, learn park skating basic tricks or just skate through the countryside or city!
STREET SUEDE or STREET DELUXE is the right choice in this case. STREET DELUXE are made of thicker nubuck leather (2.0-2.2 mm) and a little firmer due to the stronger leather.
You can order just the boots, or a complete SET. Choose your own setup here:
WIFA Street Deluxe configuration SET
WIFA Street Suede confifuration SET

The soft ankle pad supports the ankle joint, while the soft upper end protects the foot from friction.
You can order just the boots, or a complete SET with high quality frames from STD, one of the market leaders in Europe.
The "Hornet" frame is a lightweight fibre frame with steerable axes that can be adjusted individually, depending on how mobile (jam skating) or stable (track skating) the frame should be. The ELYO aluminum frame is just as maneuverable and light, but more stable overall.
The SET can be ordered with the street wheels (hardnes 78A, 65mm) that are also suitable for rough surfaces, or with hybrid wheels (hardness 94A, 63 mm) for indoor & outdoor skating. The wheel’s price include ball bearings, the plates alway include stoppres.
JAMSKATING BECOMES AN EVERYDAY WORKOUT - I'M LOOKING FOR A FIRMER SKATING BOOT
I'm starting to learn more complicated moves and roller skating is becoming an everyday workout - I'm skating more on the edges and need a model with more lateral stability, but still comfy and not too hard.
In this case the model STREET XTREME is the player, also for Rhythm skaters. It has more ankle reinforcement and is still flexible at the shaft end.
The STREET XTREME will be available in the sizes 35-45 and also in the additional half sizes: 36.5 and 38.5 in order to provide a better fit. It's available in black and grey (February/March) and can be pre-ordered now.
Please send your request for offer as well as your foot length and ball measurement (circumference toe joints), address and phone number to customercare@wifa.at so that we can reserve one pair for you. We will make an offer door to door within a few days after receipt of your mail.
I AM ALLROUNDER WITH FOCUS ON PARKSKATING
I want to cruise through the countryside or the city, do some dance moves and want to develop my park skating skills - so I need a model with more support in the ankle area.
STREET XTREME will be your friend here, as it is more robust overall. It has more ankle reinforcement, is flexible at the shaft end and softer in the ball area than a skating boot, making it suitable for the skilled dancers and rhythm skaters as well.
The STREET XTREME will be available in the sizes 35-45 and also in the additional half sizes: 36.5 and 38.5 in order to provide a better fit. It's available in black and grey (February/March) and can be pre-ordered now.

I WANT TO LEARN ARTISTIC ROLLER SKATING ELEMENTS (QUADS)
I come from figure skating world and would like to switch to QUAD (retro) rollers in summer ! I am a beginner artistic roller skater and would like to do first jumps to single jumps.
If you are more ambitious, you should rather opt for the STREET XTREME, as it is overall more robust and has more lateral stability – andwill be more durable at the long run. It is reinforced in the ankle area, softer in the ball of the foot than an ice skate, and has leather lining, which is a big advantage for hours of quad training in warm temperatures.

I ALREADY DO ARTISTIC ROLLER SKATING (QUADS OR INLINERS)
For advanced artistic roller skaters our hybrids DELUXE COMFORT OR DELUXE SKATEC (leather lining) and CHAMPION LIGHT (light boot) will be the perfect choice, depending on the level of use. They have a soft shaft ending (top) and are laced half or full depending on the skating style. The STREET collection is not suitable for inline since the ball area is not sufficiently reinforced. Inlineskating boots need to have a snug fit in the ball area that controls the lateral movements.

DIFFERENCES BETWEEN THE THREE STREET MODELS
STREET SUEDE is the softer model. It is made of very flexible and breathable suede leather - also called suede or suede. STREET DELUXE is made of firmer, durable NUBUK leather with velvet finish. Due to the stronger leather (2-2.2 mm), it offers more support and is more durable. Both models are suitable for street skating and dance, even for first park skating tricks. NEW! The lining of all STREET models is now made of high quality smooth cattle leather lining. Click here for the explanatory Video.

STREET XTREME is the reinforced STREET Deluxe for the advanced skaters. More stable at the heel, increased side reinforcement to also absorb jumps. The STREET XTREME has been tested by over 50 skaters worldwide. It was adapted to the needs of the target groups - advanced Street & Jam & Rhythm Skater as well as Parkskaters and will be available online from March 2022 in the colors black and grey. To ensure a better fit, it will be available in sizes 35-45 and also in the additional half sizes 36.5 and 38.5.

I AM LOOKING FOR QUADS
We offer the light, stable and very manoeuvrable aluminium frame ELYO and the higher-quality ION from Europes leading brand manufacturer STD. They are strong enough for any kind of skating (jam skating, park skating, artistic roller skating). The cheaper, extra-light frame HORNET is made of fibre and is also suitable for jamskating, parkskating, roller figure skating. From size 16 (shoe size 39) onwards, park skating is not recommended, as more weight is involved. All offered quad frames have highly sensitive, steerable 7 mm steel axes, which can be adjusted to the respective skating style in no time. Mounting tools are included. If you want to use all types of wheels, including e.g. LED wheels, there are plug-in sleeves to convert 7mm axes into an 8mm axes. Thanks to those sleeves, ball bearings for 8mm axes can also be used, which are usually standard for LED wheels.

I AM LOOKING FOR INLINE-FRAMES
We offer the models of two brands – STD (Spain) and Picskate (US).
STD Starlight "LITE" (intermediate level) and STD Starlight "PROFESSIONAL" (skilled level). Both have 3 wheels, the central wheel being more to the ground to allow a maximum of agility. Both have adjustable stopper. The special about Starlight "PROFESSIONAL" is that each wheel is adjustable with eccentric intermediate parts. The US brand "PICSKATE" is longer and has 4 wheels. Beginners to intermediate feel specially secure on them.

WIFA STREET SIZES
We use the same orthopedic lasts for roller skates AND ice skates.
The roller skates are made in the standard wide width "C".

The foot is the reference we work with. On our homepage you can print the insoles. STREET Suede and STREET Deluxe are made in French full sizes (35-45). STREET Suede and STREET Deluxe are made in French whole sizes (35-45). For STREET Xtreme there are additionally two half sizes 4 =36,5 and 5,5 =38,5. Please remeasure the insoles after printing the A4 sheet for safety because of possible transfer distortions. The insoles are the boot’s base – so it is a good tool to measure the size. Depending on the shape and width of your foot, you will decide how much toe space you need. Please check for your foot shape in our Technical Guide on page 4. If you have wide feet in the front (Roman foot shape), more toe space should be given (+-1 cm). If you have narrower feet please leave at least 5mm toe space for comfort as feet need a little more air in the summer. If the ball of your foot is wider, you can loosen the leaces to gain width – the sofr leather adapts to your foot shape. The toe box however is reinforced and not strechable. If you put the foot on the measurement sheet, the foot can overlap in the toe area, this is nothing unusual, since the insole is only the boot base.

WIFA STREET WIDTHS
These boots have only one width "C" (wider fit). Since they are soft, you adjust by lacing – loose for wide feet - tight for narrow feet.
