[color=#000000]They Aren't prototypes. they definitely released these skates. [/color] [color=#000000]Trying to find any information on the net which is in English is virtually impossible.[/color] Did some digging anf found an old page...... Below from the site;[color=#3333ff] [left][size=1]The CI-5 is the last of the brand new skates the Rollerblade has produced. It features removable cuff/shell, toe box bumper protection, backslide groove, replaceable metal buckle and locking receiver, integrated powerstrap, molded polyurethane, sculpted "flex" buckle protector, molded eyelet and lace protection, alley-oop double wing heel.[/size][/left] [left][size=1]The super thick memory foam, shock absorbing insole, leather cuff and tongue lining, pyramid material for better shell to liner adhesion, speed lace liner system makes for a very comfortable fit. The frame features super low profile, DC sandwich eccentric spacers, molded axle protection, interchangeable center block, pre-grooved frame, integrated tri-piston shell interlock system, molded fins.[/size][/left] [left][size=1]The wheels that come with the CI-5 are 58mm, urethane cast core, RB engineered wide street profile wheels. The bearings are Killer Bees® ABEC-5 with DC sandwich eccentric spacers and aluminum bearing spacers. The CI-5 is a street skate and like the Dirk and Daytona it is an expensive skate. It is the color mirage (tan) and is worth the money.[/size][/left][/color] [color=#000000]http://www.angelfire.com/mi/disasterroyle/ci5.htm...[/color]

ahhh... the memories of 1996... i def. had these bad boys. those cuffs were really soft and gave a lot of flex. the boot would wear out really fast though.
