Adapt is known for producing the most high-end inline skates on the market. Despite a few issues with the nubuck leather skin on my Russel Day Stealth skates, I absolutely love them!
I only talk about the points that stand out to me in my review. If you want more general information, I highly recommend the review of Cody Sanders on these skates. If you’re interested in the adaptbrand and their products, you should visit Adaptbrand.com where you can find all the info you’ll need about every product and the brand itself. Ordering products from adapt is only possible through their website. I can nothing but recommend these skates if you can afford them. They are the best skates out there and well worth the money. You won’t be disappointed! - Simon Studer.
A lot of people have come to me with questions and interest over Adapts the past few years, so I decided to do a video review to answer a few basic questions about the skates.
Forgive some of the out of focus shots, I filmed it all alone so I couldn’t see what I was doing a lot of the time. Also, the ledge wasn’t waxed and it was 8 in the morning, so cut me some slack, haha.
If you’re not satisfied with my review, you can get all the technical jargon at Adaptbrand.com - Cody Sanders.
The story of how Russell Day became an Adapt rider keeps reminding me of an old Chris Haffey interview in Daily Bread. Chris talked about buying his first skates from his now longtime sponsor.
For some reason, that felt right to me. The idea that one of the biggest superstars in blading once bought his skates from a small company just because he wanted to show his support strikes me.
There is nothing more flattering then a rider who buy’s the product just because he loves the brand and wants to support it. Russell Day wrote me an e-mail when we just started out with Adapt. Telling me how he liked the brand and wanted to try it out.
Already afraid we had another rider asking for free skates, he just replied he wanted to buy them. 5 years later, that same person who wrote us that e-mail, just received his first Adapt pro skate and had been a member of the Adapt family since day one.
