So, as most of you know I recently bought a pair of antiks. A pair of antiks that didn't fit, sigh. More like sob, I never thought I would ever in my life cry about roller skates. Oh well, shit happens. Wicked skate wear is awesome and they are exchanging my non-returnable skates.

I decided in the meantime to get my broken skates fixed. Jerzi hooked me up with a riedell dealer in Lombard. His name is Steve Highley and he is fucking awesome. He thought that he had the plate to fix my broken skate and as it turns out he didn't. He tried to sell me his slightly used r3s for $50.

Sweeets: no thank you, I just spent a ton of cash on new antiks.
Steve: please take these skates for free and tell the missfits that I want their business.

He will give us a 20% discount as well. He then proceeded to size my foot for antiks that I was about to try on at his competitor downtown chicago. He knew that as well. SUPPORT LOCAL DERBY!!!!!!!

Sorry about the novel. Here is his contact info:

This dude is seriously a derby supporter. He HOOKS people up with no question, all he wants in return is word of mouth.
I bough my lovely new skates off him, which I got a great deal on,when I was switching my wheels from the old skates to my new I realized my old skates had a broken truck, so I called Steve just for the hell of it. I explained what I found and he said "send them to me". It cost us about $3.00 to ship it and he called me within 3 days and told me a new truck was on its way. I asked him how much I owed him and he replied "dont worry about it, just tell ur friends I'll take care of them".

About the same time as the truck issue we ordered a shit load of stuff from him, pads toes stops , nuts, toes covers, and a variety of other shit Munch ordered, we had our order complete and to us within a week. The order was CORRECT the first time we got it , 20% off the entire order, and didnt pay shipping! Ive been ordering derby shit for two years and have never experience the combonation of such accuracy, an email AND a phone call that the order was shipped, and such a discount.
Hes lovely, order from him U wont be disappointed.

Yep! Awesome customer service. I went to the Ridell skate seminar in Peoria that we had set up. I was fitted then and was able to try on skates. I wasn't ready to buy for another few months, but when I emailed Steve, he was quick to respond. Called me to go over the order and ask questions to make sure I knew what I should be getting. 
He knows his stuff.

He has things shipped to him first so he can make sure the everything is in order. 20% discount and free shipping.  Cant go wrong!

i did not deal with steve but when my truck broke we emailed ridell directly and they sent us 2 new trucks no charge so the whole company has great service. I am thinking of getting new plates so I may get in touch with him. Thanks for the info guys.

Yeah he's super awesome and I learned so much from that seminar and I looooove my new skates (Torch boots + Revenge plates, in case anyone's in the market Smile
We should absolutely bring him here. If everyone gets the skates they need (better fit, better weight, etc.) or just has their current skates adjusted and gains some knowledge about skate maintenance, we will all be better for it!

Thanks so much for this information. I've been working with Steve the last two days and got my gear and skates ordered.

This guy is fast and the 20% off deal really helps.

I asked him if he was planning on coming to a bout and he said yes. Though, because he is a rink operator he isn't able to do certain things like fittings, etc. Maybe I misunderstood this, but he said he did something similar for Peoria and it had to be held in another location (which turned out to be a church).

I'm really pleased with how efficient, friendly and easy he is to work with. Super nice guy.

Thanks again for the heads up with this!! And for the push, Munch!

If he can't do fittings at our bout is there any way to maybe set up something like the Push did? I'm just thinking if there are a lot of people thinking about new skates, that setting up one group fitting might be easier for him..?

So I went today to meet Steve about my skates because they are heavy and I slide around. He got me a nice new narrow boot (torch- I think some of you have it) and I am getting new plates that wont be so heavy. He even put on the wheels I like, radar diamonds which are like $100 wheels. I got a sweet deal.
Until January 7, they do a special Christmas stocking discount. You pull a box out of the stocking and you can get 20%, 30% 40% or 50%!! off your order. I pulled 30%. Plus you still get free shipping. This guys is legit so if anyone is still having thoughts about getting some new skates go before 1/7/13 and pull out the 50% one! You're not gonna find a better deal. Hi-YA!
Cant wait to get mine!
