I want to get a pair of skates, but i basically know shit about this stuff. What skates would be good for someone like me who is like beginner/intermediate (it's not like i've never skated b4, i just havent done THIS kind of skating) Also, would it be a bad idea to get them online? and are the sizes usually similar to shoe size? any answers to these questions would be really helpful.
no no no. go to www.skatepile.com they have good prices and all the skates out there. I suggest either Razors or USD. The Rollerblade TRS' aren't bad either. Most skates that you are lookin at are gonna be around $200 I'm guessing. There is no point to getting really crappy skates, because you should improve fast and in about 2 months you will really want some better skates.
Like I said don't do that because those skates are horrible. Just get a decent skate to start off with and then you don't waste a 100 bucks on some crappy pair of skates that you are going to use for a couple months. And for sizing I normally go 1 size bigger than my shoe size. You don't want skates too tight nor your feet with kill after gaps and stuff.
d-structure fucking sucks dont go there, its inpossible to order from there, they make u write a message to them saying they will get back to you but they dont, so fuck d-structure its a waste of your fucking time
