Roller Skate Boots
Roller skate boots are the most visible part of the skate, and arguably, the biggest factor in
creating comfortable roller skates. Roller skate boots come in a variety of styles and materials, and each has advantages and disadvantages depending on your preferences. The best roller skate boot is always the one that feels the best, and because this is such a subjective thing, Medusa Skates highly recommends that you try boots on before purchasing them. If you can come into the store and get a custom fitting, that's wonderful! But also consider trying on the skates of friends and fellow skaters who wear your size. This may give you a better idea of how the boot will feel once it's been worn for a while. Also, keep in mind how long you intend to keep your roller skates. If you know you'll be skating for a long time, opt for roller skate boots made of high quality materials, like leather, and invest in toe guards. If these are starter skates for roller derby, you might choose more budget friendly roller skates made of a synthetic material.
