One pair of vintage roller skates, made in Canada by the Dominion Skate Co. in the 1950's. Full steel construction including the wheels and double bearings. Typically these would strap onto the bottom of regular running shoes using the sturdy thick leather straps. The skates are made for children yet the size can be changed to fit most any shoe by adjusting the nuts on the underside to lengthen the skate. The width at the front is also adjustable using a wrench (or a special key, not included) - not like anyone will be wearing them anytime soon anyways!
Condition: Skates have wear from use and age; multiple scratches, scuff marks, and some surface rust/oxidation. Leather straps have discoloration and some light soiling, but there are no tears to the straps. All bearings from all eight wheels still spin perfectly (they wouldn't stay still for the photo shoot). Amazingly the wheels have very little rust.
