<p>I felt like my Riedells were slick when I got them, most likely it's all in the wheels. My advice is take it easy but trust in your balance and abilities. I felt like I was going to crash out going round corners when I first wore mine but the more committed you are to any sort of maneouvre the be...

<p>I have Vandals. I tried in my size before I bought and they felt quite roomy so I went down a size. ouch! For the first couple of weeks they really felt super tight and I got a bruise on my big toenail from where they were pressing. BUT now I have broken them in, the leather has stretched and the...

Terror, if you decide your knee pads are too small I will happily take them off your hands (legs?)! Let me know once you're out of cast (and leg returned to normal size...)

It could be that they just need breaking in a little. My knee pads now have a depression on the inside where my knee cap fits in. Also, what are you wearing underneath your knee pads? When I wear tights they slip a little less than when I wear shiny leggings :P

<p>I got Henry's in Sports Direct in Broadmead. Wandered around for a while not finding anything, then asked a shop assistant if they had "a black and white stripy ref-style top", who managed to find one (which was about £5 so hardly breaking the bank). Their stock changes all the time though but mi...

<p>You might like to try the skates, if anyone has the same boot (or at a stretch, any Riedell) in your size and one size down. When I got my Vandals I tried Delta's in an 8 (my normal shoe size) and they felt quite roomy so I sized down. If the boot is leather it will stretch / mould to your foot. ...

<p>My feet cramp sometimes when I skate too, sadly I don't have much to offer in the way of advice... hopefully it will get better when I get my new skates (apparently arriving mid Jan, so hopefully any day now).</p> <p>The one thing I do find is that my feet cramp when I get a shock e.g. suddenly f...

Delta, can I try them too? I am thinking of getting some She-Devils (which have the same book) and would like to see how the boot is for size.
