Roller Derby Women's Viper Roller Skate
Good basic skates for kids. The shoe laces get ratty quick, in part because they are continually getting stuck in the velcro, but that will be easily fixed with a new pair of boot laces.

I ordered these in a size 10, being that's my normal size. When I received them they were way to big. My husband could fit into them and he wears a mens 11. Also they are wide.

Way too big!!
I wear a size 9 and was told by others to buy 1 size smaller so I did. My daughter is a size 8 so I ordered her a 7. The 7 was too big for me!! I hope that we would be able to keep at least 1 pair but had to return both.. Shame the store does not carry roller skates,(just blades).

Good skate, but rubbed ankle
I like the skates. They fit well and are good quality. . However, the first time I skated the right skate around my ankle rubbed it to the point of feeling sore and bruised. I hope they will feel more comfortable after wearing them a few more times.

What I read about the size running big is true. I wear a 7 and ordered a 6 they fit perfect. But as for using them outside and being smooth not true. Unless it is very smooth with no cracks or rough pavement they are ok. I have not tried them inside yet, so I don't know if they would do better indoors versus outdoors. I didn't have to adjust them at all and they seem like a good quality rollerskate. So, I would say that if you are wanting to use them for indoors they are good but for the outside not so good. I am going to get outdoor wheels for them so I can use them this summer.

I love these skates! They are fast... much faster than I'm used to, but so much fun. And they do run a little big. They are about a half size too big, but two pairs of socks and lacing them up nice and tight (like they should be anyway) they fit just fine. I wear an 8 and I ordered an 8. I was worried about how they'd fit after reading the other reviews, and almost got a 7... but I think the 7 would have been too small. I can make these work as far as fitting goes. I could be happier with them otherwise!

Great price and quality
These skates were just what my 11yr old wanted. She was so happy when she received her new skates. The were very affordable and with free shipping , it made buying them that much better.

No doubt these run huge. I'm a pretty standard size 9 and generally have no problem ordering shoes. However, after reading the reviews I ordered the 8s and the 9s so I could try them on. Good thing I did--even the 8s are about a half size too big! Stinky plastic smell, but they seem pretty comfortable and decent for the price. I haven't been on skates in years so I don't have too much for comparison.

I was a little hesitant to order this skate as I have weak ankles and was worried that this skate would not support them enough. I have not had any issues at all! They are very comfortable and I enjoy skating again! Would recommend!

A good buy for the price.
I bought two pairs of these. One for myself (I'm 40) and one for my daughter (she's 11). They do run big. I am a 9 1/2 so I ordered the 9. She is closer to a 9 and I ordered her an 8. Both fit well. If I wear an extra pair of socks they fit perfectly. I also have a wide foot and have a small problem finding a "shoe" that fits good. I also have a weak left ankle and these give great support. I had no problem with these at all. I would definitely recommend and buy again.
