Vintage Riedell 297 Black Mens 11 with Sure Grip Century Artistic Plates All American Wheels. Skates are in really good condition, see pics for accurate representation.
Very High end skate with Shearling on the tongue for a high level of comfort. The All American Plus Wheels are the original Vanguard old school wheels, not the current inferior reproduction wheels that are offered by Sure Grip. Visible difference between vintage All American Plus wheels and remakes: Vintage wheels lettering marked with + and VM, remakes with + and +. Almost 30 years after discontinuation of the production, wheels made from Vanathane are regarded as the pick of the bunch by many skaters.
For a good reason: Vanathane wheels provide a perfect balance between slip and grip on hardwood skating floors, with resistance against flat spots/flattening. Ideal for the current popular moves in style skating or rhythm skating. New Vanathane wheels (remake/replica/reissue) are not the same as vintage ones, because new requirements for environmental and occupational health and safety prevent the use of the original chemical process.
