Last Christmas I bought these for my daughter ... and she was never able to get use out of them; they roll very very slow. The wheels are very tight!!! I took them to get loosened - however, it did not work at all; so I have to say I'm very disappointed!

Happy Granddaughter! I got these for my 6 year-old granddaughter - her FIRST pair. She LOVED the pink wheels. Lots of padding on the feet, it’s very good!

Boy's Skates Make your child feel like a Professional! I bought these from you for my five year old nephew...within 48 hrs he was skating like a pro! His instructor was shocked our nephew hasn't had lessons yet!! We live in a big house so he can skate indoors. I bought a second pair for the skating rink because of the great quality and the amazing price and the fast overnight shipping!

Brands I'd also recommend: Puma,Phat Farm and Any shoe from Zappo's!

Zappos service is excellent! Shipped it next day. I was very pleased with my order processing. The skate is good; however, the boot size does run big. It holds up very well to the falls with little scuffing. The wheels were different than those pictured. The wheels do not spin freely and seem wider than other rink wheels I have seen. I tried adjusting the nuts but it made the wheels wobble. The wheels and bearing could be better. My 4 yr old has learned to skate well and with proper technique in them, so I will purchase different skates next time (RW Wave or Magna 600).

Brands I'd also recommend: Riedell RW Wave, Pacer Magna 600

Fun, fun, fun - The skates are good quality and my 9 year old daughter says they are very comfortable. The only down part is the wheels are tight so they don't roll far or fast with each push. Maybe they can be loosened?

My daughter is crazy about them. She got the skates for Christmas and has been using them ever since. She tried them at the local rink and found them to be comfortable and efficient. A good beginner's skate.

Brands I'd also recommend: I'd recommend Zappos for everything just on the basis of good customer service.

Too Pretty To Get Dirty! I purchased these skates for my 8 year old daughter. Day one and so far so good. She received them for Christmas and thinks they are pretty and comfortable. After she gets used to them I think I will upgrade next year.

Somewhat Satisfied - Although I knew that the skates were not leather, I still expected them to fit my daughter’s foot better. They are very hard to tie and the shoestrings tattered after the first use. They should definitely come with a more substantial shoestring. Overall, my daughter enjoys them, sans the loose fit and poorly made shoestrings.

This our second pair of this brand of skates. They work well for both indoor and outdoor skates. The first pair we used for a year and are holding up well and were just passed on to the younger sibling for more use!

I bought these in both the black/blue and the white/pink for my twin son/daughter's 5th birthday. They both wear a 12 toddler in tennis shoes so I bought a full size up (size 13 Toddler) in the skates thinking they'd have room to grow into them. When my daughter tried on hers, her toe was all the way to the end of the skates and they fit snug on her narrow feet. Needless to say I've returned both pair and have ordered a size 2 Youth. I think with the narrow fit and a thick pair of socks they will work well for fast growing feet! The skates are well constructed and are well worth the money.
