Low Price Skates – Bad Web Design Example #2 for for the week of August 1-5, 2011
Submitter’s comments: Here’s an ugly website.
Vincent Flanders’ comments: Wow! Not so much for the site, but for distant memories. Once upon a time, I was a 6-foot tall 140-lb teenager. I went roller skating every Friday night from 7:00 p.m. to midnight; every Saturday from 1:00 p.m. to midnight; and every Sunday from 1-6 p.m. That’s probably why I weighed 140 lbs.
It was very strange to see they still make the same style of boots that I wore back in 19XX.
Speaking of strange, I know the site sucks but I’m amazed at its consistency (yes, it consistently sucks). The navigation seems to be logical and consistent and, unlike 95% of the sites that animated GIFs, their use makes sense.
It’s quite “colorful,” but you can actually read the text. Hmm.
