These are the perfect skates for those just getting started in speed skating. Vanilla Carbon Inline Speed Skates come in two different styles - a 3-wheel variety for men's sizes 1-5 and a 4-wheel variety for men's sizes 6-13. These stylish inline speed skates have some of the best ABEC bearings - the Vanilla Reaction ABEC-9. With these skates, you will be zooming past your competition in any race. The half fiber glass and half carbon fiber heatmoldable boot makes this a skate that is built to last and is very comfy. It comes with 85A high quality urethane wheels that are perfect for both indoor and outdoor skating.
Vanilla Carbon Inline Speed Skates are perfect for outdoor recreational skating or for indoor inline speed skating. Did we also mention that these are extremely light skates? As you glide down the floor, you won't even feel like you are wearing anything on your feet. While light, the boot is also extremely comfortable and very durable - not to mention a nice fashion statement. These skates are naturally fast and are perfect for any level of skater (beginner, novice, experienced or expert). Vanilla makes some of the best roller skates and inline skates in the world, and they certainly did a good job making the Carbon. You will be the envy of the rink skating down the floor in a pair of these fine inline skates.

Special Note: The sizes presented here are all men's sizes, so ladies will need to go down 1 size when selecting their size.
Boys/Girls (Up to Size 4): These skates will match your shoe size.
Women (Sizes 5 & Up): All boot sizes listed are men's sizes, therefore, ladies will need to go one size down from their regular shoe size. So, for example, if you wear a ladies size 6 shoe, then you would want to get a size 5 skate.
Men (Sizes 5 & Up): The boot sizes listed are the same as your shoe size as all of the skates size 5 & up are men's sizes.
Extra Sizing Note on Children: If you are buying a pair of skates for a growing child, it's usually best to buy the skates no bigger than one size up from their current shoe size. Buying the skates at a larger size does help them get more use out of their skates, however, you also want to keep the child's safety in mind. Too much movement of the foot inside the skate can lead to ankle, feet and leg injuries. If you do decide to buy skates a little larger, you can have your child wear two pairs of socks, really thick socks or use padded inserts (insoles). This will allow your child to get more use out of the skates, while still staying safe.
