I got mine from skate attack, and i think i really should have got a half size smaller (which they don't do) than i did, as now i've worn them in a bit i feel i could have gone smaller. We'll see i dont have the money for new pair yet but guess i could sell my ones at some point.

So if you feel you need a half size i would get it as it's gonna fit you better in the long run!! :P x x

Okay, update for all interested in Vandals. Vandals are not made any more so it's a bit difficult getting hold of them.


Skate attack does not know what size skates they get with their deliveries, but said they could ring if Vandals in size 4 come in. So sounds like they can still get Vandals - best to ring and ask. Skate attack does not do zero VAT for pygmy feet, but does a 10% derby league discount.


Everglides were very helpful (I said I would recommend them!). John is very knowledgeable and helpful. They do not get Vandals anymore, but had Vixens in stock and She Devils too. If you have small feet, better ring. Small sizes don't attract VAT and there is a derby discount too.


Skatebristol said they can get hold of Vandals but they will be a bit pricier - not overly though. Get in touch with them if you really want Vandals. They recommend skates they have readily available though, and offer usual discounts on those.


I went at the end with Everglides who'll try and get size 4 1/2 for me! Yes!!! So happy! I have different size feet - left is 4 and right is 4 1/2. So size 5 would be a whole size too big for my left foot! And size 4 would be small for the other! I should get my skates early December... a long wait...

wicked blizz, i am doing the same kind of research! the sin city girls said vandals are being made just they have stopped orders as there is such a back log. im trying to decide between the vandals and the wickeds - evergaldes have wickeds in my size but only with mojos, has anyone any experience with these wheels?


yeay new skates for all! anna i promise i will donate my old ones to the hire kit as im sure no one would want to buy them!

I wouldn't say that Kat, I managed to sell my Roces on ebay for £25. But I don't want to put you off donating :)

How do you get that 10% Derby discount from Skate Attack, please? Is there a voucher code or something? Do I have to order by phone to get the discount or can I order in the comfort of my Internet surf (don't like the phone...)?


Arigato mucho!

when you are going to check out, there is a bit that says messages or comments something like that ;) and you write that you are a member of Bristol Harbour Harlots there!

OK, but then I still pay the full price because it's an automatic check-out... How did you do? Did they refund the discount to you?
