  1. I'm the Envy of the Skaters 5 Star Review

    Posted by

    My skates are perfect. Perfect size, perfect quality and perfect look. Only gripe is that it didn't come with a skate key. My friend paid a little under 200 dollars for her Impala skates and it came with a skate key.

  2. Great skate! 4 Star Review

    Posted by

    All around this is a great affordable Amazing looking skate. The only issue was the bearings that come on them aren’t the best. As for now till I can get better ones I had my local skate shop loosen the wheels up for a smoother ride. Other than that it rivals the OG skate in many ways and I’d recommend them to anyone wondering if they want to purchase them.

  3. Good skates but could be better 4 Star Review

    Posted by

    These skates are great quality leather boots, that seem like they will last for years. The boots are comfortable and I expect they will become more so as the leather wears in over time. The sizing is good, I ordered my standard shoe size (12) and they fit well.

    The wheels, and specifically the bearings, do not seem to be of great quality. I ordered some outdoor wheels and some Bones Reds bearings for those so I don't have to swap bearings when I swap wheels from indoor to outdoor. Boy am I glad that I did. I can tell, even as a beginner skater, the quality difference between the bearings these came with, and the bones reds. The bearings on these skates don't roll as well, and I can hear noise in them where the bones reds are silent, and roll for a lot longer. I will be replacing the bearings these shipped with, with another set of bone's reds. These skates were over $350, and for that price, I'd prefer not to have to do that, but as I said, the quality difference, even for a beginner, is noticeable.

    As is standard, the nuts on the wheels came factory tight, and need to be loosened in order for the wheels to roll properly. Be aware that you'll need a tool or a socket to loosen them if these are your first skates. This isn't a problem, as any skater will need to learn how to properly maintain their skates, and this is the perfect introduction.

  4. Godfather Fame - THE BEST 5 Star Review

    Posted by

    I ordered a pair of these skates (mens size 11). Rollerskate Nation has really stepped up. I am pretty much going to review them and the skates.

    First - Skate Nation - Fantastic company. Shipping was fast, and when I called the shop, they answered on the first ring. I think, I spoke to Julia. Super nice and friendly.

    Second - THE GODFATHER!!! These are the best skates I have ever owned. They are comfortable, look good and roll smoothly. The stitching is amazing. The tongue is fluffy and soft and doesn't hold sweat like you would think. They break in very nicely. The sizes do run a little big with VNLA, but overall the fit is amazing.

    I love these skates so much, I ordered my wife a pair yesterday. Compared to the Riedell OG 172's, these being half the price, is way worth it. You will not be disappointed in paying half, because your not getting a half price competitors skate, this thing hangs with the Riedell OG's...but half price...

  5. Simply amazing!!! 5 Star Review

    If you're a skater, you need a pair of these...great fit,'s like skating on a pair of clouds...if I didn't know any better, I'd swear they had shock absorbers in them...moves I've been doing in my 25 year old boots I mounted felt so much smoother and easier...I may never wear my old ones again...shout out to VNLA for making a comparable boot to the Reidell 172 at half the cost...definitely plan to get another pair with a different setup...these are fire!!!

  6. THESE ARE A MUST HAVE!!!! 5 Star Review

    Posted by

    These are thee absolute most lightest skates my feet has ever been in.These skates make it easy for me to do my spins, transitions, jumps etc. any jam skate movement you can think of you can do them in these skates. They are easy on my ankles and are extremely comfortable and supportive I honestly don't want to take them ( I skate around the house in them when not at the rink)it takes no time to break them in, if I could give them 10 stars I would. These are the best investment in skates I have ever made.
