INLINE SKATE SIZE GUIDE:
Most rollerskate sizes fit your normal shoe size. This means if you are a size EU 42 in regular shoes, you are very likely to be a size EU 42 in rollerskates too.
When you try on the rollerskate (mostly adults):
Your rollerskates might feel a bit tight at first, but if you follow these tips you will be sure to get a size that fits you. First you have to feel how far your toes reach out in the boot. If they just barely touch the tip, we would say that the rollerskate fits you. However if your toes are sqeezed and are unable to stretch, the rollerskate is too small. To make sure that the rollerskate still fits you just right, after you have used it a bit, try to get in a skating postion with your knees slightly bent og then determine how far your toes reach.
Tips for kids sizes:
Before your child fastens the rollerskate, they should kick their foot forward in the boot. This will give them some room by the heel. If you can fit a pen in that room, the rollerskate is the perfect size. If you can fit a finger, there is room to grow. If you can fit something wider than a finger or a pen – the rollerskate is too big.
Here you can adjust the length of the skate, so that it fits the guiding tips for children above. Remember you have to do this before you fasten the rollerskate.
Rollerskates have to be “worn” a little.
The actual material of the boot can be quite stiff, but will adjust to your feet after you have worn them a little. This usually means a few trips.
