When it comes to purchasing your child their inaugural pair of roller skates, the temptation to opt for something inexpensive and pleasant may arise. After all, it is uncertain whether they will take a liking to skating or not. However, this way of thinking has a drawback: cheap toy skates often provide children with a subpar experience. They won't enjoy acquiring blisters or dealing with slippery wheels, and as a result, they may conclude that skating is not their cup of tea. Nevertheless, at Crazy Skates, we possess innumerable reasons why our skates will instil a lifelong passion for skating in your child. To keep it straightforward, here are the top five reasons.
GET THE RIGHT SKATE FROM THE START - OUR SKATES ARE DESIGNED FOR COMFORT
A delightful skating experience creates a cherished memory that endures throughout one's life. If your child is enduring the discomfort of ill-fitting and low-quality skates, it's logical to assume that their enjoyment will be compromised. We firmly believe that prioritizing quality is essential when purchasing a pair of skates. By investing in our skates, you are selecting a brand that refuses to compromise. Our skates are meticulously designed in Australia and crafted using only the finest materials available. The boots are generously padded with premium, breathable foam that retains its shape and resilience, ensuring that blisters and pressure spots become non-issues. Additionally, we offer a wide range of sizes and accommodate various foot shapes, guaranteeing a comfortable fit right from the start.
OUR SKATES HAVE QUALITY URETHANE WHEELS - NO SLIPPING OR SLIDING
In most cases, substandard "toy" skates are equipped with plastic wheels that offer poor rolling performance and excessive slipperiness on smooth surfaces like indoor roller rinks. This lack of quality does nothing to boost confidence when learning to skate and is likely to result in more frequent falls and bumps. On the contrary, all of our skates are equipped with urethane wheels as a standard feature. These wheels exhibit exceptional rolling capabilities and provide an ideal level of grip. Moreover, we incorporate premium chrome ABEC bearings to enhance the gliding experience, ensuring a considerably smoother ride compared to other skates.
YOU’LL FEEL CONFIDENT TO STOP ON ANY SURFACE WITH OUR TOE STOPS
The ability to stop quickly and effectively holds significant importance in skating, particularly for beginners. Once again, many other skates fail to meet expectations in this aspect, as their toe stops are constructed from plastic, which tends to slide instead of providing a reliable stop when pressed against the ground. In contrast, our skates feature high-quality urethane toe stops, not plastic, ensuring effortless and efficient halts. These durable stoppers are crafted from a non-marking material that safeguards indoor surfaces from scratches or marks, a common issue with alternative stoppers. They are specifically designed to grant your child maximum control over their skating experience, enabling them to stop and start with confidence. No sliding. No slipping. Just a seamless and controlled skating experience.
OUR SKATES ARE FASHIONABLE AND STYLISH (YES, THAT’S IMPORTANT - EVEN FOR KIDS)
Let's be honest, children genuinely care about their appearance while skating. Whether they enjoy standing out from the crowd or prefer a more understated style, our extensive collection of colours, designs, and styles at Crazy Skates ensures there's something for everyone. We offer a diverse range of options, including skates with LED light-up wheels, two-tone flip sequin panels, glitter-infused boots, and even skates adorned with a stunning laser-cut filigree heel brooch. The variety of styles and colours available in our range is vast, but they all share a common trait: they have been meticulously designed to look exceptional in every way.
‘QUALITY’ DOESN’T HAVE TO MEAN ‘EXPENSIVE’ - OUR SKATES ARE AFFORDABLE
As you have just learned, high-quality skates provide a significantly better skating experience. However, this doesn't mean you have to drain your bank account to get the right skates for your kids from the beginning. In fact, our skates are competitively priced, and due to their exceptional craftsmanship, they will last much longer than cheaper alternatives. This means you can pass them down to younger family members or friends when your child outgrows them. Our skates will help your child develop their skills faster and with less frustration along the way, which alone is invaluable.
Investing in an incredible pair of roller skates from Crazy Skates is the ultimate way to ensure that your child develops a lifelong passion for skating! With comfort, style, safety, and performance all meticulously addressed, all you have to do is sit back and witness their progress – from tentative first steps to becoming a skilled skating superstar!
