Quality, looks, and design is pretty good. I like the smoothness of the bearings and the sturdiness of the rail. Now, where these skates falter is in the fit and sizing. The size is one higher than what it should be. My feet are swimming in them and I have to crank on the laces and strap in order to use them.
Lastly, the insole is FLAT. I am going to spend extra money for some insoles that have arch support. Kind of defeats the price if I have to spend an extra $20 to buy an arch support insole. And no, I don't have a flat foot. After a few minutes, my arches hurt and I have to stop and wait for the pain to subside.
The final question is, would I recommend this rollers? If you can try them on for size prior to buying, then yes. Otherwise, no. The bad fit prevents from any enjoyment and overshadows the design and quality.
Other than all of this, I'm in love with these inlines. The size you order is the size it is. Ik some ppl say they have problems with this cuz they're one size bigger than the size they ordered but that is NOT the case. If you take the inner boot out and stick your foot in it, it IS the size you ordered. BUT what throws ppl off is that the OUTTER shell is a size bigger. This actually helps me. I ordered a size 8 and got a size 8 inner boot and about a 8 1/2-9 shell.
Now, on to the blade...
I'm an ex-avid blader just getting back into the sport. So I know a little something about them. The stock wheels on these seem to be about an 81A. That's great for all surfaces. The skate is NOT gold. It says it is but where you see gold in the pic, it's actually green. You CAN bust ramps with these but not grind cause the frame is aluminum (plastic is best for grinding). The laces are too short. You CAN tie them but it's tough. I'm going to order some Gorilla laces once I measure these and find my size. Gorilla laces last forever. They have metal tips and are EXTRA strong for countless pulling. Amazon can supply these. The soles of these are flat (like in most sk8's). If you plan on riding all day, you may want to get some arch support soles so you can ride more comfortably.Read more ›
Overall the ride is good and the skates roll well. But, if i had it to do over I would go with a different brand and hopefully got a little higher quality.
I also had a friend with a slightly larger foot try them out and after 30 minutes he had bruises on his ankles that were slightly bleeding. This skate has a lot of give inside regardless if correctly sized and will provide very little ankle support. Read the lower stars and you will see this is a common issue.
I actually went out and bought a pair of K2s for about $160 and was shocked at how nice they were. I was able to skate much longer distances and the wheels are incredible. If you glide down a hill, you can go about 30% further with the K2s over these. Don't waste your money on these.

Fits, and my son likes them. Tried cheaper ones, but not worth it, need to spend at least this so they are comfortable.Published 22 months ago by Big Eyes
I've got big kids who are hard on things, and these skates have held up marvelously. They are also very easy to put on, which is not always the case with rollerblades.Published on May 22, 2014 by Marianne
