The GT-50 skate package is a perfect beginner skate for children to adults. Fully functioning roller skate. Features a synthetic leather boot, ROCK plate, GT-50 swirl wheels, ABEC -5 bearings, and a Carrera speed toe stop. Ideal for Recreation skating and beginner roller derby. Some larger skates (size 14 and 15) will come with an aluminum Super X plate.
Designed on mens sizing so women should size down one size. The ROCK skate is a little widder than most other skates that we make but no other skate matches this level of comfort.
Sotck indoor wheels offer plenty of grip but still the roll you want. If you are looking for some performance you might want to upgrade the wheels and bearings.

I decided I needed a different pair of skates, but wasn't going to invest in another pair unless it came with an adjustable stopper. Weirdly, it's hard to find a dedicated outdoor skates without a fixed stopper. There are the Moxi Lollis, but they are not only impossible to find right now (literally), they have a notoriously slim boot. I have wide feet (D) and I really didn't fancy the idea of having to break in skate boots. On a lark, I decided to try a roller derby skate with a low boot since I already have my own outdoor wheels. I decided to go with these Sure-Grips since they are highly rated for beginners. Right out of the box, I was really excited about the fit. I swapped the out the indoor wheels and stoppers for Sure-Grip Boardwalk wheels and Jupiter toe stops and took them for a spin. I loved how the lower boot felt as I skated on my bumpy street! I couldn't have been happier with having taken a chance on a different type of boot.
Sadly, I only got the test them out a couple of times over the course of 24 hours before the boot came apart. As you can see in the pictures, the interior of the back of the boot pulled away from the exterior. Considering they were brand-new, it was unacceptable, so I returned them. The seller was excellent about the return and I would happily order from them again!
