Uniqlo is on a roll: A sneak peek at the retailer's High Line skating rink

Looks like the fine folks at Uniqlo have finally figured out a way to make it up to us for (sob!) ending its Jil Sander collaboration.

The retailer is teaming up with Friends of the High Line on an outdoor roller skating rink complete with a glowing "Uniqlo shopping cube" in New York City. Hey, we'll take what we can we get.

Open July 28 through September 26, the 8,000-square-foot "Made For All" rink will be located at the High Line at the intersection of 30th Street and 10th Avenue.

And you'd better lace up fast—Uniqlo will be sponsoring free skating for the first 500 visitors on the first two days of business. Otherwise, it's $12 for adults, which includes skate rental fees.

The sporty venture is all part of the Japanese brand's two-year commitment to support the High Line public park.

“Friends of the High Line is improving the lives of New Yorker’s in an unconventional way," Shin Odake, Uniqlo's U.S. CEO, says in a press statement. "UNIQLO is opening two large stores in the Fall, on Fifth Avenue and 34th Street and we hope to become a part of New York culture through our better quality products."

A little shopping, a lot of be-bopping ... has roller disco ever been this good?
