Three pairs:

1. Fluid Hockey skates, only for playing indoor hockey.

2. Decathlon own brand rec skates, before I knew any better.

3. FSK CrossMax2's, because the're suitable for almost anything. Tearing up the asphalt down under in Melbourne, at the moment.

Just the one pair of crappy Salomon Preface Whatsits.

If I ever achieve some degree of competence, then I can start filling the house with skates like everyone else. :-)

Just the one pair - Rollerblade Evos. Wouldn't mind an upgrade this summer. Just need to skate enough between now and then to justify it...

Also fancy a pair of hypnos...something I can wear through the Greenwich foot tunnel, which is bang in the middle of my route to work
