VNLA (Vanilla) has designed and manufactured high-end roller skates and skate components since 2005 and is the premier brand for jam and rhythm skaters. The Á La Mode is the newest addition to the VNLA collection and is the sweet ride skaters have been asking for!
The boot is made from genuine suede in 5 creamy colors inspired by your favorite sweet treats: Blue Moon, Pistachio Green, Mocha Brown, Ube Purple and Creamsicle Orange (coming soon). The boot offers structured support throughout and is lined with an ultra-comfy patterned liner to keep your feet feeling snug.
Choose your Sure-Grip Avanti plate: Aluminum or Magnesium (white)! Sure-Grip brings you the next generation in plate design, the Avanti. Both plates feature 10 degree and ultra-responsive double action in a sleek hollow design that offers performance and durability without sacrificing lightness. The trucks on the Magnesium plate have a ball/pivot adjustment, while the trucks on the Aluminum plate have a fixed adjustment. The Magnesium plate is also a much lighter plate than the Aluminum.
The new Jelly Roll wheels by Backspin are designed to handle rough terrain. At 62mm and 78A hardness, they roll smoothly over the bumps and debris you'll encounter outdoors! Made from transparent urethane in 7 sweet colors.
Sizing tip: the A La Mode boot runs approximately 1/2 size large. Half sizes should go DOWN 1/2 size as opposed to up. If your boot is a little roomy, we recommend adding a VNLA Contour Insole.

I followed the directions and ordered these as directed. The boots fit to perfection. They're definitely wide enough to fit my feet comfortably. They feel very sturdy and give you support in all the right places. The avanti plate holds up to my weight beautifully (285 lbs). I knocked it one star because the insoles are awful. I could feel all of the mounting hardware through the insole. Overall, I'm definitely going to purchase another pair so I don't have to keep changing my wheels from indoor to outdoor, but I will definitely order insoles at the same time:)
My first ones got stolen. Even the thief knew what they were getting their hands on...
These skates are awesome! I am considered an advanced beginner, and these skates are awesome with the Avanti magnesium plates. I paid the extra $70 for these plates, and I am so glad I did! They are so comfortable, and have virtually no break in period. I have wide feet, and these are perfect for those with wide feet. I wear a women's street shoe 8, and ordered the size 7, which was way too big. I exchanged them for a size down, and those are a teeny bit to big, but adding a comfortable insole cushion and thicker socks really helps. I did a thorough YouTube review on these skates if you want to check it out: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WPQ2XPIEihk
