Atom Vortex Q-4 Falcon Skate

Luigino Racing, makers of industry-leading inline speed boots since 1997, introduced Vertigo quad boots in 2011. Vertigo is a new concept in quad boot design. As always, Atom Skates approaches new product design first and foremost with the idea of enhancing skater performance. Our flagship Vertigo Q-6 and Q-4 boots represent an entirely new concept while our Vertigo F-1 shares some of the same technology while maintaining a more traditional look and feel.

Unlike traditional quad boots, Pro-E and BFT utilizes anatomical structures to help guide the foot to its optimum position. As a result, Q6/Q4 can lead to a smoother stride and more power. The overall effect is to unlock your body's intrinsic capabilities to move more efficiently and powerfully.

Upper construction:

Microfiber is high-tech synthetics that lead the industry for the highest level of soccer, cycling road racing and mountain biking, moto racing and is now available in Vertigo quad roller boots. Microfiber is stronger and lighter than leather, water-resistant with no stretching for a true fit, even after it's broken in. 99% consistent so you get the same result with every boot.

Liner construction:

There are several different kinds of Microfiber. Our research on microfibers started in 1997 when we were the first to use it with Luigino Racing inline boots. The use of Microfiber lining has been a huge success and is now a standard in many performance shoe categories including our current competitors. The use of high quality microfiber lining improves the fit, feel and longevity of the boot.

Helpful sizing tips:

Remove the shoe from your right, (or longest), foot. Measure with sock if you want space, no sock for a tighter fit. Place a blank sheet of paper against the wall and stand on it with your heel against the wall. Mark straight down from your longest toe on the paper. Measure from the edge of the paper against the wall to the line marked on the paper, (use cm/mm/in.) Use the sizing chart at left to match your measurement with an accurate size. 

Note: It is generally recommended that high-performance skaters go for a more snug (tighter) fit. Remember that leather boots will stretch and form to your foot over time, microfiber boots will hold true to size. For example, if your measurements are between a size 8 and 8.5, it would generally be recommended you go down to the size 8 in leather and give it some time to stretch for a better more secure fit in the long run. NOTE: Toes should never be curled.
