Womens Roller Skates

Sidewalk skates and dance skates for outdoor roller skating. Rink skates have harder durometer roller skate wheels, while outdoor skates have softer wheels for grip on the sidewalk or the street. Womens lowtop roller skates are usually sized in mens US sizing even though they are in feminine colors, such as pink roller skates, purple roller skates and blue roller skates. Lowtop roller skates are generally meant for speed skating and skate racing. High top skates are considered artistic skates and dance skates. High top skates allow for more power from the ball of the foot, whereas Low top roller skates allow for more power from the ball of the foot. Harder roller skate wheels, 92 durometer or higher, allow for more slide on the roller rink floor. Softer roller skate wheels, 78a to 85a durometer, stick to the uneven sidewalk surface better and offer more control. A larger, more powerful woman skater would typically use a wheel at the higher level of durometer and a smaller woman skater would more likely skate on a softer wheel.

Indoor vs Outdoor roller skates

What type of roller skate wheels are for street skating? Skates.com has Moxi skates and Sure Grip in stock. When shopping for women's street skates go with a high cut boot, as they will offer better ankle support. 

The main different between indoor and outside roller skates is the hardness. This measurement is called durometer. When hitting the streets, you will want a soft gummy set of wheels. This will give a smooth roll on bumpy pavement. When skating on rink floor and sport court go with a higher number durometer. You have to see how the roll feels, if you feel like you are trudging through mud, that's a sign you need a higher durometer. This measurement can be found printed on the wheel well. 

When hitting the pavement we highly suggest that skaters wear protective gear. Skates.com offers lightweight protective gear and accessories to keep you rolling at an affordable price.
