Great First Quads!

This is my first pair of skates and I am extremely happy with them! They’re smooth, fit well and they look great. They did rub a bit of a blister on my ankle the first few wears but I assume all new skates can do that - overall I love these skates and I’m so excited to continue progressing.
Good for people with narrow feet or average

Great plate on bottom of skate and might want to switch out wheels. Only down side if you have wide feet really hard to break in.
HAPPY CUSTOMER WILL BUY AGAIN

I am a novice at best but I purchased this for myself I can tell you that this skate is by far the best skate I purchased out of 4 from different brand like C7 premium and glitz. The construction is impeccable, ride on regular asphalt and road is good. It's it's been a week since purchased and this has loosened up to my liking. I'm only gripe is my wide foot is killing my 5th toe I suggest to buy one size bigger to compensate for the narrowing of the shoe. And please make them in white that would be awesome. Thank you
Nice job RD!

Lemme preface this with the fact that it’s still within the first few days wearing these but I gotta say I’m actually super impressed with what you’re getting for the money.
They fit perfectly, I’m a size 8 1/2 -9 & I got these in a size 7, best advice on skate sizing I ever got was get whatever size you wear in men’s vans!
Initial thoughts are oooh pretty! Black on black on black is right up my alley so I’m excited about that, I chose to try these first over Moxi Panthers & I’m actually glad I did, aesthetically these are more my style and these are debatably comparable.
I do wish these weren’t so stiff... however they ARE suede so I know they’ll form to my feet over time, my right foot is also a tiiiny bit wider than my left and I can definitely feel it, but again - I’m still breaking them in & I’m confident they’ll be great in a week or two once Ive put some hours on em. But do be prepared for break in time cause it’s gonna be rough til then haha.
They come with outdoor wheels already on them which is lovely for most of us, however I still put my Moxi Gummis on cause Im used to them and love them.
I changed the laces, Derby Laces are a wee stiffer & slightly waxed so they don’t slide around when I’m tryna tighten them etc like the stock ones were doing.
The tongue stabilizer is something I know a LOT of us will appreciate after skating boots without one!
The toe stop is low key annoying af and my only real complaint but I can deal with it, if they’d put an adjustable one on these they’d be at 100% for the money imho. But I’m confused as to why they can’t just be normal bolt on if they can’t spoil us adjustable??? Whatev tho I’ll live lol
The metal plates are surprisingly light - and also appreciated after skating on heavy metal plates or nylons for ages - and the skates together only weigh like 8 lbs.
The metal trucks are nice & the cushions are super squishy I actually had to tighten my trucks personally when it’s usually the opposite right out the box.
All in all I’m really really pleased with these skates hitting the market cause finding affordable options that aren’t total garbage is H A R D.
Hmu on IG if you have any questions I also make toe caps :) @_T_H_O_T_W_H_E_E_L_S_ or @dannieight
Good fit for a beginner like me.

These skates are super cute and pretty comfy! The boot is stiff but I like that because it feels like it’s really supporting my ankles. Shipping was super fast!

I’m a new skater and these are just perfect for me! I’m thrilled with the purchase. Pay attention to the size down for ladies.
