    So I am shopping around for some inline skates to take my dog out on the trails and let him run hard. No I am not an amateur, I grew up skating, had inlines for all my dogs and am in my early 40's now. Does K2 still make a great skate for recreational flat skating?

    I am looking at the FIT 84 BOA model, I love the BOA adjustment, just wondering if there are comparable inline skates out there with better comfort or features that I am overlooking.

    I don't use them as much as I thought I might, perhaps this summer i might try harder.

    I played hockey growing up, thought I would make a nice natural transition to blades, I'm still on the back side of the learning curve.

    Bought K2 Radical 90 skates. Not high tops, kind of an entry level race skate, I think they characterized them as a fitness skate or long distance skate. I like them, I just need to push myself to go use them more.
