    Founded in 1905 by Elisha Clark Ware, and run by his sons – Ralph, Walter and Robert – the Chicago Roller Skate Company became the alrgest manufacturer in the roller skating industry through most of the 20th century. Their products have included both rink and outdoor roller skates, and convertible ince/roller skates. Many innovations in roller skating were introduced by this firm, such as the St Pierre detachable skate, the “Flex-i-Flote” skate, and the “Velvet Tread” wheel system. The Chicago Roller Skate Company, in addition to being a leading force in teh industry, contributed greatly over the years to teh popularization of roller skating.
