I love Zappos! They always ship super fast! They upgraded my shipping and I got my skates in 2 days compared to 7 days. I agree with the other reviews, these skates run big so I ordered a size 5 instead of a 6 which is my usual shoe size and the skates fit perfect with a little extra room.

Great Skates! I bought these skates for outdoor skating and they are very comfortable and they look good too. I bought a 7 and I usually wear an 8. They fit fine even with thick socks. Shipping was lightning fast!

Chicago Skates Womens Classic Rink Skate - I use these skates to skate outside near the beach and they are great. The wheels spin very smoothly and they fit perfectly, thanks to the reviewers who pointed out that they run big. I wear a 10 shoe and I ordered a size 9. Great deal for the money and I received them very fast even though I know the Zappos warehouse was being hit by an ice storm. I will definitely shop with Zappos again!

So rad! I ordered these to treat myself for doing so well on my finals and they're great! I took everyone's advice and ordered a size down, I'm a size 7 and I ordered a 6 which felt odd but when I tried them on they fit perfectly with a little wiggle room to spare! Also shipping was crazy fast... I ordered it at eleven at night and got them at eleven the next morning. Overall, awesome!!

I love these skates, reminds me of the good 'ol times. They do run big, so if you are between sizes, go down. I am a 7 1/2, I ordered a size 8 and they were too big, but since I could not wait to skate I used them and had so much fun.

I'm skating again!!! I read the previous reviews and took their advice ordering a full size smaller. They fit perfectly and look great. I was absolutely stunned that I received them so quickly. Thank you for such great service.

I LOVE THESE!!! VERY FAST SHIP!!! I read the other reviews before purchasing and it is true, these skates run large. I am normally a size 6 shoe, but I ordered a 5 and they are still just a little big. Overall I just love these skates, it's going to take me some time to get used to skating again, but I just can't wait to get out there again!!!

Great Skates! I headed the warnings of the other reviewers on here and ordered a full size smaller than my shoe size and I am glad I did. I normally wear a 9 and I ordered an 8 and they fit great. These babies are excellent quality and very cute. I can't wait to use them! Zappos as usual did a FANTASTIC job of getting them to me safe, sound, and fast.

Cute Skates! Except for the color of the wheels (mine were red), these are the exact duplicates of the pair I got for Christmas as a teenager in the mid-1980s. I love them! The main thing you as a potential orderer need to know is THESE PUPPIES RUN A FULL SIZE LARGER THAN YOUR REGULAR SHOE SIZE. I'm a solid 8, but I had to return the 8s for a size 7 and they fit wonderfully!

Chicago Shoe Skates - I love my new shoe skates. And to receive them in such a timely manner with no extra charges was wonderful! My experience with Zappos was so positive that I wish I needed to purchase more and had the money to do so!

I bought this for my girlfriend, and she liked the looks so much.\r\nShe tried them on, and the sizing was OK (as recommended by other reviewers).\r\nAs soon as she used them she noticed that the bearings where not good, and the wheels felt like plastic (even though are nice looking).\r\n\r\nFor recreational skating without any speed are OK, but if you are mid level skater, upgrade a little bit.

The Classic Rink Skate was pretty nice, but they didn't fit my feet correctly (caused pain along the top of my foot) even with extra thick socks to compensate for the fact that they run on the large size (I typically wear a size 10, I ordered a size 9 and it was still too big.) The other issue I had is that the skates didn't go as fast as the ones I was replacing (size 7 1/2(stretched) Riedell skates I'd had since 1982.) The quality seemed good, just not quite the skate I'm looking for. I've returned these and I'm waiting for the precision skates to arrive - I should have ordered the next step up in the first place!

Zappos is so awesome. I ordered my daugthers skates, and I was expecting them to come in about week or two, but we got them in two days, with just regular shipping. I love Zappos and I tell all my friends about Zappos.

Brands I'd also recommend: All shoes and boots

I wear a size 10 shoe and had an issue with another company where I had ordered simular skates I was told that I would need a 10 but that was wrong the other skates where too big..I had to return those skates...and after reading the reviews on this site I ordered these skates in a size 9 and they fit perfect!! I can't wait to try them out. I've just started skating again since my oldest daughter has just learned how to skate this summer. Also this is my first time ordering from Zappos! and might I add the delivery was SUPER FAST! My new Chicago skates! Shipping Method: Standard Shipping (4-5 business days) Date Ordered: 09/16/2012 Date Shipped: 09/17/2012 Date Received: 09/18/2012 NOW THAT'S FAST Thanks Zappos!
