So are Inline Skates or Roller Skates easier for kids to learn?

As a general rule Inline Skates tend to be a little easier to learn, but they are slightly faster than roller skates. Similar to ice skating.. Chances are if you can Ice Skate, you’ll find Inline Skating very easy to transition into.

Roller Skating tends to be a slightly more difficult to learn because they can feel a little less stable, they are also prone to catching more debris from the ground that Inline Skates.

The honest truth is that most children who are learning to skate for the first time, will easily be able to master the basic movements of skating within about a 30 minute period of effort.

So, we suggest having a relaxed approach and letting them choose based on the style they are most drawn too, then they will want to wear their skates more as well.

As they say, Practice makes Perfect!

The best process to find your correct size is to use physical measurements from your best fitting shoes, and then find a skate with matching dimensions. Relying on a shoe size is leaving more to chance because shoe sizes differ greatly from brand to brand and even between models.

To take the guesswork out of it all, we have created a step by step process that you can use to find your correct fitting skate (or find the size of someone else, without them knowing about it!).

See our sizing infographic here:


Remember that each skate model may have slightly different sizing, so it's best to double check your measurements as you add your skate to cart to make sure you are getting exactly what you want.
