We went skating yesterday, on our brand new viking skates. These are traditional Dutch skates, as opposed to more standard hockey skates, and feature much longer blades. They're designed for use outdoors, and in the favoured Dutch ice sport of speed skating.

old fashioned football boots with added blades?

I'm not a good skater, I go skating once or twice a year at most, and yesterday the new look skates didn't help much. Still they are more comfortable than the usual kind, and by the end of our session I was approaching my usual level of competence. The hope is that soon it will freeze up outside enough that we can go skating in the great outdoors.
