Ordered and came quickly. Even during COVID, got them in about a week. Most comfortable boot, with or without wheels, that I own. So comfortable, I ordered this pair right after I ordered the taupe ones. When they got delivered to my office, I didn’t want to take them off...and I didn’t. Rollered around the office the rest of the day. I’m normally a 41 or a 10 1/2 but ordered the 42 to accommodate socks. I think that was the right move. Love these to death.
These skate are smooth and a great quality. I love the color as well. I had a hard time finding light blue skates, and I am obsessed with these. :)
I picked up skating again as a middle-aged adult, after countless hours of skating as a kid. My first skates back were the Moxi Rainbow Riders, and as much as I wanted to like them, they were too stiff and heavy for me. I had my eyes on the Sure Grip Boardwalks, but didn't have the extra money to plop down on those, or the Moxi Lollies. Someone recommended these in one of the skating groups I belong to, and I jumped in head first, and ordered these. I was kind of scared ordering another pair of skates online (my Rainbows were a teeny bit too big) but I needn't have worried. I measured my foot, and went off the chart. I normally wear an 8 or 8.5 in women's shoes, and ordered the size 8 here and it fits perfectly. That made me happy because I didn't want to have to spend the money to send them back if they did not fit. My first trial ride on this was a dream. I thought my Rainbows were decent skates, but these blew them out of the skatepark! People are right about this skate, there isn't any breaking in with these, and they skate like velvet; soft and smooth. I found myself being able to do things in these skates that I couldn't even have tried with my Rainbows! I even bought some rollerbones bearings in advance to switch out the bearings, but needn't have bothered because these don't need the bearings or the wheels changed out. The only possible downside for some people might be the lack of ankle support. My Rainbows were very stiff in the ankle, and these are the exact opposite. I wasn't sure if I would like that, but after the trial skate ride, I was in love. That is something to keep in mind if you need more ankle support. I really wish I had known about these when I bought my Rainbows, or I would have bought these first. Ah, well. We live and we learn, and I learned this is one heck of a nice skate in this price point. I can see myself skating in these for many more years to come. Thanks, BTFL!
Well made, skates smoothly, very comfortable
Wow, I haven’t owned a pair of skates in over 30 years. I went to the roller rink before I received my BTFL and the difference is substantial. These are so comfortable and I love the color. Shipment was quick. The more I’m in them there’s a possibility I’ll be in them more than not. Thank you BTFL!
