Choose this, not that: wide feet edition
If you're a skate with wide feet, you'll want to ensure your roller skate boots give your feet plenty of room so they aren't scrunched in your boots. A wide toe box is essential!

We created this guide to help skaters with wide feet choose an alternative to some of our most popular models. If you are looking for roller skates for wide feet, look no further!

The Savanna roller skate is a wonderful choice for recreational skaters with wide feet. The vinyl boot provides ample padding without sacrificing space. It retails for under $100 but the quality would suggest it was a much more expensive skate!
