Very stylish shoe for the kids and easy to put on. Good for some light cruising on board and strolling off the board. Maybe these are not optimal for serious skating since kids shoes should have some room for the toes, but these have no means for tightening a secure fit, so these are a little loose.
My kid skates daily. Burns through shoes fast. This is a solid shoe that holds up to skating so we only have to buy new when he's outgrown them.
