Kids Adjustable Inline Skates

A Great Solution for Growing Inline Skaters

By

Many parents debate about buying good quality inline skates because of the expense of replacing skates as the child grows. But, there are a lot of affordable adjustable skates for kids that can be purchased online, at your local rink pro shop or in a sporting goods store. These skates will actually grow several sizes with your young skater and help make inline skating an affordable sport for the whole family. In addition to entry level recreational skates, there are adjustable inline skate models for young hockey and speed skaters, too.

Adjustable Skates Need Fitting, Too!

Although it is not crucial to have the skater on site for a fitting, the foot size is still important. Before shopping, trace your skater's stocking feet, and measure the length of the tracing from heel to toe and the widest width across the ball of the foot. These measurements will help you select a skate with the longest possible growth time, when shopping online or gift shopping without the skater present.
