Buying skates online has never been easier. We want you to be happy
with your skates and one important step in choosing skates online is
getting the right size.
Buying roller skates is just
like buying a pair of shoes. Basically, your shoe size will be the size
that you will need for your skates. We have skates that range from 8J (J
stands for Juvenile or Child) all the way up to adult size 16. Pay special
attention to the sizing information given for each skate on the product
detail page. Certain skates come in only mens sizes so ladies will need to
adjust their sizing accordingly.
Tip for buying skates for
children it might be better to purchase one size larger for your child so
that they can grow into the skate, that way the skates can last a longer
time. A lot of skaters have also worn thick or double socks until their
feet have fully grown into the skate.
Finding the exact measurements of
be a good idea to measure your foot so that you can be sure that you will
be getting the most accurate size skate for your feet. You will need a
piece of paper, a pencil/pen, and a ruler or tape measure.
To measure your foot stand on the piece of paper and mark the end of
your heel and then the tip of your longest toe. You will then measure the
distance between the marks (in inches) and then use the tables below to
convert those measurements into the right skate size for you.
-Wear the same style of socks that you will be wearing while
-Measure both of your feet and choose the skate size that fits
the bigger foot;
-If you are measuring by yourself, it is best to take
the measurements while sitting. If someone is measuring for you, then
standing up is best;
-It may be easier to tape the paper down to keep
it from moving.
-If you measurements are between two sizes it is best
to move up to the larger size.
Please note that sizes can vary among different skate types and
brands of skates. More accurate skate sizes are available on certain skate
product pages on our site.
