About K2 Skates

K2 revolutionized the inline skate industry in 1994 with the introduction of the first Softboot inline skates. Developed in partnership with U.S. National Cross Country team member John Svensson and U.S. Olympic speed skater Tony Meibock, the K2 Softboot moved beyond the uncomfortable, plastic-style designs that dominated the market. K2’s patented design provided skaters with the precision and accuracy of a hardshell boot, but in a comfortable, lightweight softboot design. Almost 20 years later and expanded to a full model line of men’s, women’s, and children’s inline skates for everything from family recreation to everyday fitness and professional competition, the Softboot design is still the foundation of the K2 Skates line. Often imitated, but never duplicated, K2 is the Original Softboot™ that continues to push the envelope of inline skate innovation.
