The Best Kids❜ Roller Skates
If you’re looking for new and inventive ways to keep your kids entertained, we’re willing to bet you’ve considered bikes, scooters and skateboards, but have you thought about roller skates?
As well as being a nostalgic throwback for many of us parents, roller skating for kids is a great way of improving balance and coordination and ensuring they’ve burned enough energy to be tired by bedtime (the ultimate parenting goal).
Six of the Best Kids' Roller Skates
1. Crazy Skates Roller Skates and THE ICONIC
The one-stop-shop for all-things roller skating, Crazy Skates stocks a whole lotta different types of skates for a range of ages and abilities. From their fun Soda Pop range which are size adjustable, to a Trolls line and some glorious retro styles, it’s a great place to head if your kids are already roller skating fans—as prices average $100+. And if you’ve got other shopping to do, you can also get them online at THE ICONIC.
2. Impala Roller Skates
If your kids are fashion-conscious and up with the latest trends, you’ve probably already heard of Impala Roller Skates. Available in an ultra-fun range of patterns, these skates are effortlessly cool and retro-inspired. Impala’s kid’s roller skates are designed for comfort with a padded collar and tongue and feature metal speed lace eyelets for quick and easy lacing. The perfect choice for more experienced skaters who will get the use out of them!
3. Big W
With a selection of both inline and quad roller skates, Big W is a great place to head for some affordable and fun options for kids roller skates. We love these Bling Roller Skates and we think you’d be hard-pressed to find a little one who wouldn’t love these light-up Frozen skates!
4. Bayside Blades
Located in Victoria but shipping across the country, Bayside Blades has an epic selection of roller skates for kids—featuring lots of funky brands for the more serious skater.
5. Rebel Sport
If inline skating is your jam, Rebel Sport offer a range of options by Goldcross, plus plenty of protective gear too!
With plenty of budget-friendly styles on offer for budding skaters in training, Kmart (as always!) is a great place to head if you want to get some roller skates without breaking the bank. We love the Junior Training Roller Skates and think this Crest pair look pretty swish, too.
