I'm a 31 yr old woman who wanted to get back into roller skating... um, must admit just recently saw Whip It for the first time... anyhoo, did a little research online and these seem to fit the bill... ordered the sz 6 (I'm a Womens sz 8)... and they fit pretty well, a bit on the loose side, but I don't think I could have gone with the sz 5... get them!
Just for one to compare sizing. I wear a size 10 in womens & I ordered a size 7 in this skate, but only because a size 7.5 wasn't available, so I took my chances & yes, It was too small. A size 7.5 would've been a perfect fit. I Cant give a review about the quality of the skate. I can say that it a cool looking skate tho.
I thought theese wheels lit up, by the clear wheels and the name. The blue skates have light up wheels. Theese skates were too little for my son so he has not been able to where them. He got them a day after his birthday on March 2, 2012 which was'nt bad shiping time.

I initially purchased the women's roller derby skates and was excited about wearing them - however I purchased the size 8 and they are waaayyy to big. When I saw these skates and read the reveiws I decided to try. I am glad I did! These skates are the best, I purchased a size 5 and they fit perfect!
- How accurate was the sizing? True to size
- Was the product free of any manufacturer defects? Yes
I'm a 31 yr old female who has just decided to recapture the 70s I never experienced by roller skating anywhere that will have me. These skates are great! Cute, fast, cheap - I have no complaints. Warning though - I wear a size 8.5/9 shoe and even the size 6 in these is a little roomy. Happy rollin'!
- Did the product fit true to size? Not at all. Runs about 2 sizes big.
- How is the quality of the product? Good!
- Was the product free of any manufacturer defects? So far so good.
Bought these skates for my nephew for his birthday. He loves them. He is a new skater and is just getting into skating. Perfect for beginers. We go to an indoor rink and the wheels are perfect for that. They needed some adjustments but for a beginer work great. Size of boot: on target.
I purchased these skates to give roller derby a try. I wear a women's 8.5 and bought the boys 6 and they fit just fine. These are great skates for anyone just wanting to get back on wheels again. As far as derby goes, these are great to start out on, but I feel an upgrade in my future. But for the money and the product, this purchase was an excellent deal.
I bought these these skates at a great price for my grandson's birthday. He was estatic when he saw them. He loves them and is enjoying them. The fit was perfect. Now 2 other grandson's want them as well. I have to order them soon. The service was great they came within a few days in mail.
I bought these in a size 4 for my 8 year old son. He normally wears a 4-4.5 sneaker but after reading reviews these seemed to run big so I opted for the 4. Even with a 4 he still has plenty of room to grow and they are comfortable for him. We just got back from the roller rink and he said they felt great and watching him skate he seemed to have good control (he is a beginner). He will wear them outside once the weather improves. For the price they seem well made.
These skates were a really good deal, price and item wise. My grandson has them on even when he is not skating and normally he would have torn them up by now but these skates are still going strong! I am very pleased with these skates and would recommend them any time.
I purchased these skates for my 8yr old son for Christmas. He loves the skates and I cannot keep him out of them. We live in chicago so it is very cold and needless to say the snow will not stop so he has been skating all over the house. The only problem with the skates, is the loop that is on the back of the skates. I guess he tried to pull the skates on one too many times and the loop broke. I told him I had to return the skates for a new pair (without the loop) and he was not very happy but once the new skates arrive and he is rolling again I am sure he will be pleased. Overall love the skates but I would recommend purchasing the skates without the pull loop.
