The EDEA RITMO Semi Professional FreeStyle and Dance Skate is the best Skating Boot for Mid-Level Dance and FreeStyle Skaters. The RITMO can also be used for Figures (Large Circles and Loops) ONLY, but is not suggested to use for Dance and FreeStyle at the same time. Possibly after using the RITMO for Figures for a year or two, then use them for Dance and FreeStyle.
The EDEA RITMO Semi Professional FreeStyle and Dance Skate is Ultra Light and Mid-Strong Roller Construction with Beautiful Leather finish outside and perforated MicroFibre Lining and Planar Footbed. The RITMO is made with Revolutionary NEW Ultra Lightweight Materials which means that the RITMO is 25% to 45% lighter than comparable Skating Boots. Available from Discountskatewear.com, the RITMO is designed for High Performance Roller Large Figures and Loops and Mid-Level FreeStyle and DanceRoller Skating and is incredibly comfortable.
The MicroPerforated MicroFibre Lining is long lasting and ventilates the perspiration quickly. The Anatomically Shaped Padding of Memory Foam and Form fit of the boot is shaped by the Thermoformable Structure and provides the best in foot contact and control while giving the movement range to allow Great Performances. Other features are the comfortable Back Cuff Padding, the Rounded Heel Shape which more evenly distributes the weight and adds torsional stability, the Full Wrapped Padding, the Shaped Extra Padded Tongue and the Sewn in strong forged long Hooks. The Footbed has direct Ventilation and is torsionally rigid but with just a bit of vertical compression in the Ball of the foot, that creates a lower center of gravity in the Skate, that creates a lower displacement which greatly increasing stability and control.
The EDEA RITMO Semi Professional FreeStyle and Dance Skate now has a very strong and supported PLANAR Sole, which is Flat and Ventilated to match the mounting surface of the Skate Frames. With these new materials, it is now possible to properly mount the Skate Frames to the Skating Boots. Be sure to use the enclosed EDEA “Double Helix” special EDEA screws (with a High thread that cuts and a Low Thread that grips). This system can be confidently used for most Competitive Roller Skaters, but if you are a heavy duty FreeStyle Skater, it would still be suggested to use a Bolt Mount.

EDEA Skates fit a great majority of Skaters (because of the newly designed shoe lasts), right out of the box, but some have need of special accommodations to give that perfect fit. EDEA Ritmo Boots ALL have a Thermoformable Structure which allows manipulation of the boot to give the perfect Custom fit without the Custom price. EDEA Skates use a special Memory Foam and DO NOT use gel packs or standard foam that are heated in an oven, then the foot inserted to shape the inside padding of the boot only, this method allows change and movement of the old style padding over time, which is not a good thing. EDEA Ritmo Boots DO use very high tech materials (similar to a carbon fiber or Kevlar material) which can be shaped using high power hair dryers and Special Shoe Lasts, in very specific locations or general widening or narrowing of the Skating Boot. This “Shaping” is actually changing the Structural Shape of the Skate. Once the boot is “Shaped”, it will stay in that shape, until the “Shaping” process is changed again. Discountskatewear.com provides this very special Custom Fitting service.
