I bought them for my 9 yo daughter. She is intermediate level and she skates on streets. Skates are extremely comfortable and stable. Her shoe size is 4 1/2. I bought 5 man. The quality of shoes and all materials is impressive. She loves them and she improves every day. Delivery was super fast and the best price around.
Takes some tome to break in

These were my first pair of skates I bought for myself, however I am educated on them and sinply needed a "cheaper" skate to learn better on. These boots are very well built, with lots of padding and thick PVC material. This makes the boot insanely stiff, however, and so I emded up using a hair dryer to help mould it to my feet. It softened up a bit after that. The toe box is quite slim, and i have to modify my lacing to keep it from pinching. I also added arch inserts, as the solesnof these boots offer no arch support. I was happily surprised that the Citizen boot came with said Sure Grip Aerobic wheels, and adjustable toe stop. The original Citizen skates on the Riedell website are different from this build, but this version is the improved one, for sure. This is a good boot that has held up so far. Overall, a bit uncomfortable, but protective and a great beginner skate. Shipping was fast, and everything arrived as described.

My first pair of skates, i love them, the boot is comfortable and i have wide feet. The wheels work great for rolling over cracks and debris, and they're more vibrant than in the picture, i got the pink ones. The trucks feel nice and are easy to move in. My only issue was a toe stop that wouldn't stay secure to the boot despite how i adjusted it, but i e-mailed the roller skate nation staff and they're sending me a new set, awesome. Ive been skating with one toe stop and i love the skates, they feel durable, comfortable and are tons of fun!
I LOVE MY SKATES!

I am in LOVE! These are my FIRST skates! I am a beginner and have never owned a pair of skates, I think I've skated a total of THREE times in the rink before deciding to purchase my own. Best decision ever! I have now skated outside on side walks, streets, basketball and tennis courts! It's so much fun!! The skates came earlier than expected and they are true to size.
I'm in love

I'm a recent roller skate convert, inspired by a video of the Moxi skaters in Cali. I ordered these skates after a night at the local skate rink proved that I actually enjoyed it. These arrived the day they said they would in perfect condition, fit true to size, & perform better than any roller rink skates. I'm trying them inside on both tile & wood floors rather than outside due to snow & ice, but so far so great! Really happy with this product for the price.

So far so good! Brings me back to the days and the roller skates are just what I wanted. They are a bit stiff but I believe probably just need to break them in. I hope they will last but only time will tell.

These skates are so durable and and they fit perfectly. I’m usualy an 8 but ordered a 7 since it’s in men sizes. I also wear thick socks so the hi top doesn’t rub shading my ankle and with my socks they fit so well and snug. You’ll want to make sure you adjust bearing to a tight resistance because mine came very wheely and spinny haha. Remodel is a great brand. I will be getting my derby skates from here with Reidell as well. Also came like 4 business days :)

Great beginner skates!

I was so excited for them to come in, and I was not dissapointed! They come with a little wrench tool to adjust the trucks, wheels, and toe stops to your liking. I found the wheels a little intidimating when I first skated, as they spun too fast and I'm a complete beginner. But it was nothing adjusting the wheels tighter and toe stop longer couldn't fix! It made the actual riding part easier as it gave me more control and allowed me to learn with confidence rather than worry about my speed.
The boots themselves are good quality and the wheels easily glide over tiny sticks and cracks. It's still intidimating, but with practice comes ease, and I feel like these skates are a great investement for any beginner!
Tips I've learned: Squatting makes skating and falling (important to learn, believe it or not!!) easier, so don't tie the shoes all the way up to the top to allow your ankles a little wiggle room for squatting. The boots themselves are thick enough to still provide enough protection and security for your ankles. Happy skating noobs! :)

I roller skated as a kid, then at 65 years old I decided to try it again. It had been 50 years - yes 1/2 a century since I had skated. In an effort to expand my exercise routine I decided to buy a pair of skates. I had never owned a pair of skates as a kid. I can't tell you how I felt when I opened that box and saw those beautiful skates. I felt like I was 15 again. They are a dream. It is taking me awhile to get the drift again, but I am having a blast. They could not be a better quality skate. I was so excited I left the bag in the box and threw it away by mistake. It's ok. I love my skates.
Big Hit for Birthday Present

Bought these for an 11 year old girl who wanted to skate in her neighborhood (bumpy roads, leaves/twigs scattered around). They roll great! Skates came in 4 days - not the 6 to 10 days stated on the website - so we felt lucky and surprised. Great product!

I bought these for myself as a 50th birthday present. I wanted to get back into skating as a workout. I love skating outdoors in them. As the previous reviewer commented, they do have a lot of padding in the ankle, but this is really great for me as I need the extra support! love these!
really nice skates!

I purchased a pair for me and my daughter for Christmas. They arrived on time as promised and even were price matched with another site with astronomical shipping charges. I am pleased with the skates so far. They bring back memories from when I used to go to the rink as a kid. They fit well. There is a lot of padding at the ankle for some reason. Otherwise I am happy with my purchase.
