Not necessarily, often your street size will be different than your rollerblade size. Before making your purchase, reference the size guide tutorial to ensure you have the best fit. Keep in mind that all skates will have a break in period. A boot liner should be snug on your foot, but not tight. If your skates have auto fit liners, they will be made out of gel pads, allowing them to adjust to your feet during each use.
Find the right inline skates for you
How do I decide which style is right for me? It depends on your goals as a skater. Beginners to inline skates tend to start with a set of recreational skates. These inline skates are very user friendly, as they offer more stability while you find your balance.
If your plans involve learning how to do extreme tricks and jumps, aggressive skates have a durable frames designed to handle hard landings. Fitness skates are designed for skaters that intend on skating often, they are considered a performance version of recreational type skates. Roller hockey boots are designed to fit similar to ice hockey boots and allow for easy maneuverability.
Urban skating is a mash up of aggressive and recreation skating, the boot on these skates is made for tricks while the frame is shorter to help you take corners with ease. Keep in mind that bearings will take a beating during extreme tricks and will have to be replaced more often.
