I purchased a pair of Scarlett Pros from the refurbished section of BTFLs website for $99. They looked absolutely brand new! You would never know they were used, let alone refurbished. For the money, these are a STELLAR skate. I adore mine and use them heavily. I haven’t had any issues at all. The suede is breathable and the plates seem pretty sturdy. These skates are comfy with no break-in period. I did add a thicker insole though. For reference, I’m a 25cm and wear the size 9. Would absolutely recommend this pair if you cannot afford a Ridell or Suregrip skate, but want something similar feeling.
Over all this is a very nice boot and skate setup. Mine came a bit rough and customer service was generous in their aid to help with this. This is a skate I encourage others to buy BTFL. It seems to be one of the better choices on the market without breaking the bank.
With roller derby on break for the foreseeable future due to COVID I wanted a pair of skates for learning fun tricks and dancing (derby skates are too stiff and bulky in my option for that) but I also wasn’t ready to commit to another pair of $300 skates since I invest a lot into my derby skates and these would be for fun. I LOVE these skates, they’re so comfortable, run wider and much more comfortable than even my broken in derby skates! The suede is soft and seems decent quality! I also purchased a pair from the refinished ones and I couldn’t find anything wrong with the pair at all! Great quality and price, my only feedback is I wish this style came in brighter colors that were more forgiving to scuffs!! With this price point I’d buy another pair in a brighter color like orange or magenta in a heart beat!
