- - Yes, they're good for getting around I use mine as commute skates.
If you do any kind of aggro at all they're useless.

- - They're a compromise. They don't do anything well ( other than detach and
attach). If you aren't carrying shoes and taking your skates off more than
once or twice a day, I think you might be happier in regular skates.

- - It really depends. I think they've improved since I bought mine ( rossi's).
The hypno looks like a better skate, but the design limits the amount of
flex that they can put in the ankle. They're great for commuting, but I wouldn't
use them for just fitness skating.
