Skating Since 1905

Founded by the Ware Brothers of Chicago in 1905, Chicago Skates has been the leading brand in the skating industry for over 100 years. National Sporting Goods acquired Chicago Skates over 20 years ago and has been marketing and developing the line ever since.

Today Chicago Skates remains the classic standard in quad roller skate industry. In addition to our popular classic quad collection we have branched out into innovative inline skate, skateboards and other wheeled productlines and accessories.

Quad Skates

The most recognizable and popular skate on the market

For the beginner Chicago offers the multi-adjust boot that grows with the child as they hone their skating skills. No need to change skates year after year. Once the basic skills are mastered the size fitted quad skates increase the riders performance and speed while providing comfort by a stitched upper boot and padded collar.

Inline Skates

Developed for fitness & designed for fun

The Inline that is tailored for the intermediate to advanced skater who is looking for torsional stiffness. Regardless of the skate or ones ability, the attention to detail is second to none. Comfort begins in the boot liner that are stitched for comfort and breathability. Enhanced by multi-size push button adjustments, the fit is sure to be right.
