I bought these men's skates for myself, a woman because I wanted black and I wanted a women's 9 1/2 so I bought a men's size 8 They fit perfectly and are very sturdy. I skate with them on the paved walking paths which are fairly smooth surfaces I am very happy with my purchase.
Boots are very nice, as are the wheels and trucks. The plates are plastic, so don't know how long they would last, but we had our own wheels and trucks to put on the boots and these boots are so much less expensive than the "brand names" like Labeda, etc. We are very pleased with this purchase.
