My skates were shipped immediately after ordering. Once they got to my door, I opened the box and started roller blading in my house! I don't recommend that, but I was so exited that I tried them on right away and one thing led to another... They fit perfectly, are comfortable and quality material. The longest I have ridden is about an hour and my feet didn't sweat bad while wearing them too. I enjoy my skates! Thank you!
First time buying roller blades on my own and there were so many to pick from. So happy with my purchase. Very comfortable and very smooth ride. Will definitely continue to buy this brand in the future.
A:At this time no inline skate manufacturer makes a "wide" skate. You can accommodate for width by adding in a heel lift to the rear of the skate. This will pull the heel up and alleviate some side to side pressure in the boot. In some cases it's best to go up a half size to accommodate for the extra width. You could also go with a men's skate since they will be slightly wider than a women's skate; just be sure to go down a size since men's skates are sized one size larger than women's.

Q: Are the brakes detachable? Sorry if this seems like a stupid question lol. I've never bought skates before
A:The brakes are detachable but you will need a shorter axle to then use to attach the wheel. If you wish to remove the brake from your skates we can order you the shorter axle. I personally leave my brakes on even though I am a fairly good skater, they don't really get in the way at all and they definitely come in handy!

Q: If I wear a normal shoe size of 8.5 should I get size 8 or 9? Thanks
A:These skates are aimed at comfort in a recreational package and offer a more padded boot for comfort. With that said you could go up to the size 9 with little to no issue. If this was a more performance oriented fit it would make more sense to go down the 1/2 size as many skaters actually do this for better performance.
