The Pacer Charger is a great skate for kids to get started skating! Boys and girls love this skate once they get them on their feet. The wheels can be used inside or outside on any surface. Bearings in this skate are not full precision bearings so they do not roll fast which is sometimes good for a starter skate to allow children to get their balance on skates first before they take off rolling too fast. The boot is a semi ankle top skate with a cinch strap that allows to get the skate snug on the ankle. Priced right to get your child rolling!
