There are many types of recreational skates for kids on the market. Inline skates, also called rollerblades, have been around since the 1980s and have become increasingly popular in recent years.
These recreational skates have three to five wheels arranged in a single line in different wheel sizes, ranging from small (60mm) to large (76mm).
Quad skates, or traditional roller skates, have four wheels arranged side by side. Quad skates usually have four wheels that are the same size. The most common sizes are 56mm and 62mm.
If they're just starting out, buying a pair of quad or roller skates is probably a good idea. Once they've mastered the basics, they can move on to inline skates if you're interested in going faster or doing more tricks.
It's hard to keep up with kids' growth spurts, especially when it comes to something as important as their safety. That's why adjustable kids skates are such a great investment for parents of young children.
Inline, roller and ice skates can all be adjusted to fit kids as they grow, so you never have to worry about them being too big or too small for their skates.
In this blog post, we'll explain how to adjust each type of skate, as well as what replacement parts like wheels, brake, and brake pads are available if your child needs them.
