These skates are not just for kids but they are the most ideal for children. They are the skates that come in smaller sizes to provide kids with a better fitting skate so that they are comfortable in their skates on the track. The more fitting a boot is to a child's foot, the more comfortable and stable they will be. Stabilty is very important because it helps kids with their confidence being able to stay upright on their skates and not fall. These skates are great for kids, but as stated above, they are NOT ONLY for kids so buy a pair for yourself and get out their with your kiddos. Don't forget to read our Kids Skates FAQ and our Parent's Guide to Buying Skates for Kids for even more great information on what skates will work best for your kids.
