I like the way the skates handle. I am a beginner, and have been using them in a rink. They are great, I am very happy with them. My foot is narrow, and I was concerned they would be too wide, but they are not. I would recommend them to anyone.
As a Diabetic I try to exercise regularily with a mix of activities. My new community has 82 miles of paved trails and inline skating was a good fit. I like the flexiblity and comfort of the boot. I hadn't purchased a new pair of skates since the days of "hard" boots. I keep the skates in my car so I can got the trails whenever the mood strikes.
A: Generally with inline skates you will want to size as close to your shoe size as possible, as they will break in about a half size after some use. Another way to get a proper fit is to measure your feet in a cm measurement and then take that to the brand specific sizing chart we have and that would be the size you need to order
