Generally, there are two main kinds of roller skates: in-lines and quads. In-lines are made for speed, and quads are made for performing tricks.

There are several classifications of skates:

One kind of skates are 'aggressive' skates. These have hard boots and small wheels. These are used for dangerous stunts such as hand rail slides or stair jumps. Generally, only extremely advanced skaters use these skates.

On the other hand, 'recreational skates' are generally used for beginners. They are built for comfort and durability. These are often confused with 'fitness' skates, which are reserved for those who Rollerblade often.

There is another group of skates, called 'speed' skates. Their design varies, but they are generally used for sports.

Ice skates are different because they have blades on them and they are designed differently than per Se roller skates.
