SIZING KIDS INLINE SKATES
Most all the kids skates sold here on Inlineskates.com will be adjustable offering 3-4 sizes of adjustment so you can have your kids in the same inline skates as they grow. This makes buying kids inline skates a bit more rewarding knowing you won’t have to replace them as soon as the child grows up to the next size. Kids inline skates are going to fit similar to the kids standard shoe size so if they wear a size 2 in their shoe size a size 2 will fit in an inline skate. As kids skates are adjustable you will want to find the skate that comes closest to the size needed. For example if the skates are available from 11-2, 1-4 and 4-7 you will want to go with the 1-4 size range so you can adjust it to a size 2 and still have 2 more sizes to adjust up to. Like adult skates, kids inline skates will require some break in time and will fit better after worn a handful of times.
ADJUSTING KIDS INLINE SKATES
As a lot of the skates are adjustable you will want to be able to easily adjust them but don’t worry kids inline skates are easy to adjust. You will not need any tools to adjust the skates and can typically adjust the skates in under a minute. Not all skates are the same but most will offer a latch or button on the front of the skate that can be hit or unlatched to make it possible to move the toe box of the skates in or out to easily adjust up or down a size. For full adjustment instructions please look inside the box of your new kids inline skates as most manufacturers will include detailed instruction with the skates.
