Which skates are right for you
Price Range: $50-$80
These skates are cheap in price and are a great beginner skate for anyone not willing to break the bank. We recommend changing the wheels to a harder outdoor wheel for skate parks, but if you want to cruise around a tennis court or indoor rink these are great for that as well.
Price Range: $249-$279
With seven different styles to choose from, Moonlight Roller has a small but quality selection. Unique styles including Silver holographic, snake skin, Amethyst purple, Emerald green, and the classic black. They are attractive and sturdy skates, and they are a Black-owned business.
Price Range: $60-$250
Chaya offers multiple types of skates including derby, park, and recreational. They have flexible prices and a lot of options to choose from. Overall, they are quality skates for any terrain. The best part is, they offer payment options so no need to worry about paying up front.
Price Range: $95-$140
These are another great beginner skate without having to pay a fortune. They offer both quad and inline skates with a fair variety of styles for both types. Although, the inline skates are a bit more expensive.
Fair warning: Skaters online have expressed Impala skates tearing and ripping at the base of the boot within months of purchasing. Quality may have improved since then.
Price Range: $150-$380
These are very well-known and popular skates. They are expensive but they are 100 percent worth it based on the quality you will receive. They offer cheaper BeachBunny Skates for $150 but their most popular skates are the Lolly’s that are $300. These should be thought of as an investment and for serious skaters.
