It's no surprise that Riedell R3 boots are so incredibly popular! The R3 boot features class-leading build quality – including a special grade of vinyl that is more durable than standard vinyl and a detailed boot construction process that was developed from Riedell's decades of boot-making experience.
We paired the R3 boot with an adjustable mini round toe stop in black, and an agile PowerDyne Thrust Nylon plate (15 degrees).
For this skate we chose a Roller Skate Nation exclusive, the Cosmic Superfly Wheels. This wheel is made from high quality -GRIP RITE- urethane. Long lasting, deep speed grooves mean maximum wear & grip. Nylon inserts keep the bearings cool & smooth. These speed wheels are 62mm x 40mm and 90A hardness.
Choose the wheel color that best suits you and get out on the rink floor!

These remind me so much of my old school Riedell Carerra skates I bought with my first paycheck as a DJ at the skating rink 25 years ago with one exception... Comfort. These are far above the comfort of those original Carerra skates with some added cushion around the ankle. Highly recommend these for anyone that prefers the old school look of quads with some added comfort.
fast, smooth, but a little pinchy

if you have been using rentals, these are going to completely blow you away. they are fast, smooth, with very good maneuverability. my twin sister bought the same pair in a different size and needed to tighten her trucks when they arrived but mine looked similar but felt really good, i think its just skater preference and not an issue with assembly. i wear a ladies 12 shoe but the riedell 11 is much too big, as is the 10, but the 9 (which i am wearing) are a touch too small, just a few millimeters but enough to cause toe and toenail issues. I believe this will get better as they break in, and i am experimenting with various lacing styles to try to remedy the issue. (i wish riedell would offer half sizes....)
i got mine with purple wheels and i put on purple toe stops and purple led lights for the baddest skates on the rink.
Comfy and smooth

The boots are well made without any areas that rub my feet wrong. The wheels have decent bearings that have a nice glide.
Great indoor session skates

I recently purchased this skate set, except with all 8 green soft 90A wheels, abec 7 bearings, very fast rolling, good control with nylon plate abs metal trucks, Riedell R3 boot size 11 (same as multi tennis shoes) fit well and feels good with extraadding. Good beginner speed skates or even if you skate well—would buy again!! Excellent customer service and delivery by Roller

I was looking for outdoor skates, but the first pair of another brand that I bought didn't fit well. I decided to give these Riedell skates a try and I'm really enjoying them so far. Swapped the wheels with outdoor wheels (keeping the Cosmic wheels as an indoor backup) and have been getting plenty of exercise and practice around my neighborhood between my trips to the local skating rink.
I emailed and spoke with Thania at Roller Skate Nation, who answered all of my questions and helped with the exchange. Overall, it went very smoothly, and I'll continue to use RSN for my skating needs!

I grew up skating on Riedell skates. Still have my old ones. Love the pair I just received. I asked for a mix of green and purple wheels, and they look awesome. I have not had the chance to skate on them yet, besides through the house. If you are looking for a great pair of first skates... I would recommend these. I wear a size 8 1/2- 9 in womens shoes, order a size 8, and they are a perfect fit. Fast shipping.

I'm a big guy who hasn't been on speed skates in 25 years, though I am on my 2nd pair of blades. I bought these to skate with my 8yo son at the local rink and couldn't be happier. They are comfortably padded and the abec7 bearing keep them rolling smooth.
Great skates fast shipping

I spoke on line about the questions I had for skates and they were very helpful. I then ordered these skates since they are comfy but not bulky. They also have an Abec 7 bearing which is fast and effortless to skate on. I even love how I got to pick my wheel color, pink. They were perfect for me to go skating with my son and for the level that I skate at. They also cane the next day without having to pay for over night shipping. I am very impressed with the skates, service, and shipping.
