The Riedell Dart Ombre Roller Skate is a great skate for beginners or advanced skaters. This skate can be used by people of all ages including juniors and teens. The Dart is one of the top selling skates in the world because it offers unrivaled performance at a low price. The Dart is nothing new, though. Riedell has produced a similar skate for quite some time in other colors and styles. This "Ombre" style was released in 2015 and comes in two colors. We recommend this skate for juniors (teens). These skates are easy to lace and are comfortable. You can swap the wheels out for softer wheels if you want to skate on rough surfaces like sidewalks or streets. These skates will run a little big ladies and fit normally for men. You might compare these to the Riedell R3, but the R3 is a little bit higher quality skate and intended for junior to adults.
