I took my daughter to a local sports store and tried these on her. Because of the previous review about the sizing issue, I tried a junior 12 on her, and sure enough, it fit her. Considering she is a size 9.5 to 10, that means that the sizing is small. It actually fit her nicely, as a 9.5 would fit her and so if I had purchased them, I would've gotten either the J12 or J13 so she would have a bit of room to grow. Despite the sizing issue, they were very cute and looked to be of good quality. Even though they are a boys style, my daughter loved them (I think it was the red wheels) so these might be considered a unisex style. Anyhow, I just thought I should share this information for anyone considering buying them.

I purchased the Roller Derby Firestar Boy's skates for my 6 year old grandson, who was visiting for several weeks. The quality was more than I expected for the price and he loved learning to skate on the carpet. I took the advice of another buyer and bought a larger size than his regular shoe size. The Roller Derby Firestar Boy's Roller Skate was a perfect fit.

We bought these a little big and we put on a few pairs of socks and have fun in the basement or driveway. They aren't incredible quality by any means but they are just what we needed at the right price. Would buy again.

This was a wonderful price to pay for my beginning skater to take skating classes at the local skating rink.

My son has really enjoyed these roller skates. He uses them at the roller rink and inside the house (sigh). My only complaint is the velcro just shreds the laces in no time. If you are buying these skates, may as well pick up some extra laces while you're at it.

I'm a roller derby player, and I was looking for a skate to buy my little nephew so I could get him loving skating like I do. For the price, this skate is a good quality. It could definitely be used for both boys or girls. There's enough ankle support as well.

My nephew just turned 4 and I bought him the size 12 skate, which I think is a little bit big on him, but he'll have maybe another year to grow.

My 8 year old son has been begging for roller skates...not blades, skates! With his birthday money we got these little gems...he's loved every minute of them. Easy on Easy off and have held up nicely with lots of falls and such. Fit true to size.

Poor quality! The tongue pulled out/wasn't sewed in the first time my son wore them it came out. They do roll well, though, and fit normally

TOP 1000 REVIEWERon December 26, 2014
This roller skate is very appropriate for kids who want to try out roller skating before committing to buy a more advanced model. The materials are all man made (i.e. no leather), therefore it does not breathe as well. The sizing is quite accurate but it might be wise to consider getting a size bigger for comfort since the shoe itself doesn't bend much and might be uncomfortable if too tightly fitting. The rollers seem slightly uneven in terms of "rolling" - some rolled more than others, some stopping sooner than others if you test rolled it with your hands in the air rotating the wheels. This can be alleviated improved by spraying some lubricant onto the wheel's ball bearings section from the outside.

All in all, since these rollers skates are quite affordable, it might be worth a try for many beginners wanting to start learning. Recommended.
