For skates, I recommend inline hockey skates, not regular rollerblades. Some
of the regular rollerblades (non-hockey skates) may also work okay, but you'll
want to make sure the wheels spin easily: Simply hold the skate and spin the
wheels with your hand. If the wheels stop spinning right away, then those
skates will be difficult to skate in. Also, please know there are hard wheels and
there are soft wheels. I recommend soft wheels, which will help grip the floor
and still provide speed. Hard wheels will not grip and your child's feet will slip a
lot. Rollerwheel hardness is measured in Durometers, with the lower number
meaning the softer the wheel and you should look for a durometer between
72-76 (although a 78 should be okay).

If you have regular rollerblades, please remove the skate brake.
