You always take a bet when ordering shoes and/or clothing online, never knowing if things are "true" to size. However, these skates are very true to size so if your child is like mine - growing at ample speeds - I would suggest anyway to order a 1/2 or whole size up, as I did, because they will get much longer wear out of them. The construction and ease of her putting them on herself is great. They are "fast" meaning that they are good quality roller skates so I would not recommend them to a very beginner; but if you do buy them for a very beginner skater, then practice on carpeting before hard surfaces. The front stop takes a little getting used to as her prior skates had a back stop, but that all comes with learning how to skate! However, all in all, a great product. A skate like this at a retailer would run upwards of $50 to $60, I believe; however, at XXXX, no tax and free shipping, once again you can't beat the Overstock pricing and fast shipping!
How accurate was the sizing? These skates are VERY true to size; my six year old is a size 13 and/or 1 so I ordered the size 1. They fit her well and with a little room to grow.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Very sturdy construction
Was the product free of any manufacturer defects? No defects!
I ordered the FireStar Girls Roller Skates for my friend's daughter. I was amazed at the quality of the skates for the nominal price I paid on Overstock. In addition to beating the prices of the local big box store, the shipment arrived two days earlier than expected in time for her actual birthday. The experience was outstanding all around.
I bought these as a gift for my 4 1/2 year daughter - they are beautiful! Very well made, stitching & wheels top notch - I did buy a size up, just to be certain we can get more use out of them. Additionally though, in shopping online for a few days, these skates were rated the highest at other online retailers, than any other girls skate - so of course I had to try them & they are top quality! Overstock also had the best pricing....yay for that!
We received on time. My 7 y old try to skate many time but she can't handle it. It was too hard for her. Now I can't return it. Just sit in a garage until someone wants it. I ordered Rollerblader which was a lot easier to use. Now she is very happy with her Roller brader
How accurate was the sizing? perfect
