Love my new skates. They run 2 sizes big so I have them in a size 6 and they are so comfortable. I'm breaking them in, and as I've been doing so, the back left wheel on the left skate came loose, but no problem, just tightened it. The skate bag is awesome. Gonna go for some light-up wheels and poms for the skates. So far been skating around the house and outside. Will be taking them to the rink soon.
I was kind of scared to buy these skates because I'm super picky and I can never buy anything online because I have to try everything on. I read the reviews and they all seemed good so I figured, eh I'll take the chance. When the skates came in the mail, it was love at first sight! They were better than I ever expected! I'm a size 6 so I got a size 5, as the other reviews suggested to go a size down. With a pair of thick comfy socks, they fit perfectly. I don't know anything about professional skates but these feel fine when I skate on the street or at the beach. I'm so happy that I took the chance and purchased these gems!
My son has worn Chicago skates for the last (5) years. They hold up great and the inside has a leather lining, which is a huge plus. I normally would try and buy Riddell, but the quality isn't much better unless the outer of the boot is leather. This skate seems to hold up under any tricks, and pressure that he puts on it. I always buy them two sizes larger and use a gel sole, it helps with the growing spurts. Overall a great skate, which I have given his old pair to my sister, who invested in the Riddells, only to discover two years later that the boot is still too stiff and not loosened. She tried on these Chicago skates and fell in love with them! We are skating enthusiast and truly enjoy this hobby and passion, not to mention a great deal at a great price.
