why walk when you can skate?
Let's start with the apex of luxury: white and black leather roller skates by Saint Laurent. Shaped like a sneaker, the skates are perched on a metal sole that connect the tres cool kicks to the "Krypto Impulse" wheels. C'est magnifique, well, except for the $1,150 price tag.
If you're not up for spending a month's rent on some footwear, you can try out cute options from Fred Flare and Moxi. Fred Flare's retro-inspired white skates with multicolor wheels are perfect for your '50s drive-in waitress costume, while Hello Kitty red ones from Moxi are great for times when your Hello Kitty top, skirt, and socks are in the wash. There are also ferociously rad leopard print skates from Moxi that will add some oomph to your reenactment of Katy Perry's "Roar" video.
Nonconformists can rejoice because Jeffrey Campbell has combined platform sandals and roller skates into one awesome shoe. Sure, there are no breaks on this pair, but when you look that cool rolling down the side walk, why stop?
