I've been using these skates for a couple of weeks now and I LOVE them. I'm 29 (female) and haven't skated in easily 15+ years, but it sure does come back to you fast. The fit of the boot is snug, the style is super cute, and they feel very sturdy. Definitely a well-made product. It's also worth mentioning that RollerSkateNation's customer service is really good. They accidentally sent me the wrong skates the first time, but sent me the correct pair, along with a prepaid return shipping slip, very quickly. Everything was resolved with no hassle and I got what I wanted. 5/5 would recommend.
She won't take them off

Got a pair of these for our 13 year old daughter and she absolutely loves them! So much so that she wakes up in the morning and the first thing she does is put them on. This is her first pair and I would say she's a big fan. She wears them all day long skating around the house and neighborhood. I know she'll be sad when she has to go back to school after Christmas break because she won't be able to wear them.
FUN FOR THE OLD!!!

These Skates Rock!!!

These are my first skates, I've had them for a little while now and I think they are fantastic. I usually wear a women's size 6 or 6.5 and the white size 6 fit me perfectly. Get a toe guard or the leather on the toe will get scraped up. Wheels are great for outdoors. After about two hours of skating my toe stop fell off but I screwed it right back on. I have never really liked exercising, I was that person in health class that the teacher hated because I sucked at everything, but I've been using these skates everyday since I got them and its a pretty good workout. Definitely something people who don't usually like more physical activity than going for walks can pick up on. Get some good knee pads and wrist guards if you're new! And watch Indy Jamma Jones on youtube to learn some basics, it's very helpful.
I use them everyday

These are the first roller skates I've ever owned and their perfect for a beginner like myself. They are outdoor skates and work perfectly going over bumps and cracks, but they also work in the roller rinks as well. I ordered and received the skates within a week. I'm so happy and I will continue to buy and skate stuff I need from this website.

These skates are high quality and fit snugly to your feet and ankles as skates should. They are fantastic! I'm so glad I bought them!!
Fun for a 47 year old

The skates are extremely well constructed and the sizing seems to work out just right. I am a woman's size 10.5 to 11 and purchased the black skates in men's size 10. I bought these to learn to roller skate (again) this summer. It was an activity I loved as a kid.

I was searching for this pair of skates through multiple sites, and this was the best option for me because you can chose the color of the wheels as oppose to other sites where the default color was pink. It didn’t take very long after placing the order for shipping. I received them in about 3 days. They’re really comfortable so they don’t need a lot of breaking in. I rode them out in my neighborhood with my husband, I forgot how much fun it was. Love my skates!

After extensive research and combing through Amazon, these skates were the best deal. Plus, I could choose the color of wheels I wanted (orange)! Shipping was quick- I had my skates within a week. I've put a few outdoor miles on them now and I'm very happy with the integrity of the wheels and the toe stops. So happy!!!

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 :)

These skates afford a senior to exercise with great entertainment.
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.
