    I was somewhat concerned about ordering something so fit oriented online and ordering a size 5 mens for my size 6 stepdaughter but was pleasantly surprised when everything turned out perfect[...], she liked the looks and skate-ability and most importantly they fit!

    i am a speed skater & have been for many years.transitioned from outdoors to indoors.these skates are light,comfortable. replace bearings with Bones reds,do not bother with stock KWIK ABDE5.radar evo wheels are slippery new,need time to break in and develop grippiness as promoted. terms such as "hot hot hot" "red hot" and "pass everyone"are gross exaggerations.faster skates are readily available-but for more$$$.riedell's integrity may suffer as their bottom line increases-diablo should sell hot hot hot.excellent purchase for novice, beginner and roller derby wannabees.seasoned enthusiasts will be disappointed.

    [...] The skates are superb, i have been using them on a coated gym floor and have found that they grip really well. They feel very smooth and almost glide, very quiet. the boot is really comfy.

    Review Date 2010-03-08 - Helpfulvotes 4 - Unhelpfulvotes 0 - Verfied Buyer? Yes -
    The skates are what I expected from reading other reviews and knowing that you get what you pay for within this price range. I am newer to Roller Derby, but not new to sports in general and used to inline skate and mountain bike feverishly, so I had a sense of what to expect.The boots are super comfortable. The vinyl, however, wears out VERY easily when skidding on the derby floor. So, I plan to make a second, much better pair of toe guards to prevent this problem. The vinyl holds up fine otherwise. The wheels are exactly what I expected: slow and too big. I've already taken the wheels off an old classic pair of roller skates to replace. The bearings are fine. The issue is not having any spacers between the bearings. First we started by machining out the right sized spacers for the EVO wheels,which made a difference, but not enough. Then, when I took the ABEC bearings out of the EVO wheels, put them in my older skate wheels and added skateboard spacers, BIG difference. The axle itself, however, is not machined flat at the attachment site, so at some point, we'll have to file that down for a better fit. I liked the boots, knew they would fit well and wear well and could upgrade parts from there. And figured if they didn't wear well, then they would ultimately turn into a great pair of outdoor skates. So, for [$], I got a decent pair of skates compared to $500 that I don't currently have. I recommend them to those who are beginning roller derby or just like to enjoy roller skating.

    I upgraded my bearing to the reds bones right out of the box and what a difference. Haven't owned my own skates in about 15 years. Been on rental speed skates a couple times in the last couple years. Decided since my daughter was skating more, I should too. Wasn't expecting the speed these skates produced. Wish I had these when I was younger.

    Customer Rating - 4 stars - Great Derby Starter Skate
    Review Date 2011-02-27 - Helpfulvotes 1 - Unhelpfulvotes 0 - Verfied Buyer? Yes -
    I have been on some form of skate since I can remember. I skated on quads from grade through high school but switched to inline skates in the early 90's. I was hesitant to try a pair of quads after becoming a very experienced inline skater, but the transition was flawless. I plan to join a local derby team and find that the Diablos are a great starter skate for an amazing price. The bearings are fast enough for now. I am impressed with how well the Diablos are constructed and the break-in wasn't as uncomfortable as I expected. The worst I've experienced is some redness on the inside of my ankles (which moleskin will cure for now), but I skated pretty hard. So far no blisters at all! I look forward to upgrading to a pair of Wicked or She Devil Skates when finances allow or these wear out, but that shouldn't be for a solid year of hard skating.I do prefer leather, and the Diablos are constructed of man-made materials so I find that my feet do get slightly hotter than with leather or ventilated skates. I am used to heavy skates from my years of inline skating, but did not find the Diablos to be too weighty. My crossovers are well executed and within about an hour and a half I was skating backwards-just like the good 'ole days! ENJOY YOUR PURCHASE! Skate hard, skate fast! skates.com can't be beat!

    I wear a size 6.5 in women's shoes, and the 5 fits absolutely perfect (I have wide feet too). They are great for a beginning skater, I wish they were faster. I feel like I have to work extra hard when I am trying to sprint. I plan on replacing the stock bearings in the very near future. Maybe the plate too.

    Customer Rating - 4 stars - Diablo Roller Skates are red hot!!
    Review Date 2012-03-02 - Helpfulvotes 1 - Unhelpfulvotes 0 - Verfied Buyer? Yes -
    I bought these skates for derby and they work perfectly. The wheels that come with it are SUPER slick on an indoor track. A couple of complaints are that they are a little stiff and I need to wear inserts to make them more comfortable. Also, they do not break in well. They are synthetic. Overall, a good skate.

    These skates are great! Very comfortable and fast. Took a little getting used to, but otherwise the best skates I've worn before. One thing, don't follow the sizing chart. I wear a woman's size 8 normally. I got these in a size 7 because that is what I've been wearing in rental blades. The sizing chart said I would be a 5.

    Review Date 2013-01-23 - Helpfulvotes 0 - Unhelpfulvotes 0 - Verfied Buyer? Yes -
    Worst customer service I have ever dealt with and will NEVER buy from skates.com again. I bought the wrong size and the refund took over 3 weeks to be completed AFTER I had to call and be placed on hold for over 15 minutes. DO NOT ORDER FROM THIS WEBSITE or use a coupon code because the restocking fee is based on the list price not what you paid for it. Yes skates were a hit w/ my son but I bought the right size from another company, www.rollerskatenation.com, much more professional.
