My son (11) struggled to figure out how to put on the wheels over his sneakers. They barely fit, but using just stocking feet was uncomfortable. I think he'll like them when he gets the hang of it, but not an out of the box great time like his electric scooter was.
I've been skating almost as long as I've been walking and really I fall less when I skate so I bought these for my 5 year old granddaughter so I could teach her. These skates are wonderful. You can adjust the nut on the wheels to regulate how easily the wheels spin until kids are comfortable. The first time we went skating I had her wheels locked down and she was basically walking. Within the first hour she was asking when could she roll?? We skated about 4-5 hrs that day and she was a pro!! Loose wheels and all. Plus she thinks they are awesome because they are pink. Bonus. A win for Grandmaw! Highly recommend.
