THREE-WHEELED SKATES HAVE RUBBER TREADS (Nov, 1935)

THREE-WHEELED SKATES HAVE RUBBER TREADS
Rubber-covered balls of fiber replace steel wheels in roller skates of new design. The three-wheeled skates are said not to mar floors or carpets, and to be virtually silent. According to the maker, they require no lubrication, and are lighter in weight than ordinary steel skates. The illustration shows the standard size and also a smaller model, with front wheels set well forward to prevent overbalancing, intended for the use of very young children.

    I’d like to know how well these worked and how long they lasted, since steel skate wheels continued to be made well into the 1960s.
