If your kid spends too much time in front of the TV or computer then it’s time to look into kids roller skates to get him/her outside for some physical activity. Perhaps your youngster has outgrown their pair of skates and is ready for an upgrade?
Actually, were pretty sure your kid has been asking about a new pair of skates for the last couple of months so be sure to follow our quick guide to choose the perfect pair of kids roller skates!
The stability that good ol’ classic quad skates provide make them the perfect choice for both rookies and intermediate skaters but the many choices and roller skate jargon can be confusing.
SIZING TIP: If you are buying skates for a child we would recommend you go up 1 or 2 sizes so that your child can use them longer. Just have them throw on an extra pair of socks.
Search Low Priced Skates For The Tots
You don’t even know if your kid has what it takes to roller skate but everyone has to start somewhere. We have a variety of kids roller skates but the Zippy Adjustable Skates are a solid buy for the newbie.
They’re a great skate to introduce your little junior to the wonderful world of roller skating and their adjustable sizing system accommodates many different feet sizes. The high quality nylon stands up against all the stomping and dragging that kids do while they’re learning and the wheels are made to roll at an appropriate speed to prevent the “Oh my god, I can’t stop” panic attacks…
Kids skates are skates that are designed for the young skaters. They look cool but at the same time they’re designed so that they will not go as fast as other skates. Plus, these skates are designed for the wear and tear that kids put on their skates!
Colors and Comfort Are Important!
Pink is for girls and blue is for boys. That’s what we’re hardwired to believe, anyway. It’s not suggested to give a baby boy a pink truck to play with but it’s your call! When it comes to roller skates, kids care about the color.
If you’re buying roller skates as a gift and don’t want to spoil the surprise, use your judgement to choose the perfect colored skates.
Further more, kids hate being uncomfortable. (No wonder they weep when their parents bundle them up with three pairs of everything in the winter).
- Grab a pair of skates that give their toes some wiggle room. This allows them to grow into the skate which in return is an economical choice!
- If the kids prefer velcro shoes, then look for the velcro power strap found on many of our skates.
- Always test the kid out with his/her new skates on a carpet or softer surface to prevent scratching the skates, and of course the floors at first. Although our return policy is lenient and a process of simple steps, it’s goes even smoother when the skates are in brand new condition.
Where Will Your Kid Skate?
While sorting through the variety of skates, you need to filter based on outdoor and indoor roller skates. The main difference here lies in the type of wheel being used but luckily most kids skates are hybrids that your kid can take just about everywhere.
