    I've seen these on Ebay - they're a decent price but I'm not sure they're good skates? Anyone got an opinion on this? I expected the Riedell ones to be like plastic reinforced kind of things but they seem just like trainers on wheels so I assume there's no minimum specification for safety or anything?

    I guess they'd work for now until you could get proper Riedell ones. I was looking at some, and they were actually just plastic on top of a soft boot so.

    Ooh, look what I just found - http://store-1161702141.amazonwebsto...B000K36VWI.htm

    That works out at about 60 which is really decent. Although some reviews say they're a narrow fit (which is what I'd need) , some say they're quite wide...I'm confused!

    Eh, most of what I've just read in the comments doesn't seem good to be honest. They would be ok for practice for a little while, but then you'd want something more like http://www.sportetc.co.uk/roller-der...ad-skates.html

    Is it really bad that the only reason I don't want those is cos they're ugly? LOL

    I love the style of Riedells, these and these are my favs, but will need to be saving the pennies A LOT before they can be mine...

    Haha, I totally understand what you mean! They aren't the prettiest. Ebay might have some nice ones that you could use for now for cheap.

    And I do love those Riedells. So purdy.

    Lol I may have to sell my soul to pay for Riedells. I don't think the boyfriend would be willing to pay that much money for skates!
