Sizing a Roller Derby Skate
Is my skate size my shoe size? To get the best boot fit we suggest skaters review each brand specific size guide. As your shoe size is rarely your skate size. Some boots are padded more than others and will fit differently. Need help in your search? Our customer support is available 833.238.8800.
Wheels for Rink Skating
I'm a new to roller skating, what's a sign that I don't have the right wheels? One sign to look for is that you are sliding too much in your crossovers, you wheels might be too hard. Also if you feel like you are skating through mud, your wheels are too soft. Most folks will have an outdoor and indoor set of wheels on hand depending on where they skate. Having the right set of wheels makes for a smooth ride. As a travel skater you have to be prepared to skate on any surface.
