Riedell Makes Roller Skates for Everyone!

Whether you are looking for the flashiest pair of skates or the most comfortable boot for your oddly shaped foot, Riedell is where you want to start your search. Riedell has been making skate boots for over 60 years now, and today they are still the leader in customized quad skates.

Types of Riedell Roller Skates

Riedell offers customized Jam, Rhythm, Derby, Speed, Artistic, and Outdoor roller skates. While there aren’t huge differences between the, Riedell customizes each type to maximize your performance for the activity you are going to play. The major difference you will notice between all of the types is the boot height, brake, and wheels. Artistic skates have tall boots much like a figure skate to give you maximum ankle support, while Jam, Derby, and Speed skates have low cut boots to allow as much ankle articulation as possible for agility. Outdoor skates have hard wheels so they do not get chewed up on the pavement. Jam skates do not have a brake, instead there is a dance plug put in place of the brake stopper so the big traditional brake doesn’t get in the way of your dance moves.


You can purchase Riedell Roller Skates already set up with a boot, wheels, trucks, and brakes as a set that Riedell has picked, or you can customize the skates and pick all of the components yourself. In addition to picking out your very own components, many Riedell quad skates have heat moldable skate boots. A heat moldable boot means a customized fit to your foot. Heat molding is pretty easy, is all it takes is either a heat gun or a hair dryer.

Ladies… be aware that when you are shopping for your very own pair of Riedell roller skates that all of Riedell’s are in in men’s sizes (except for the artistic skates); this means that you are going to need to buy a men’s size boot that is 1-1.5 sizes smaller than your actual women’s shoe size.

The Perfect Roller Skates For You

So whether you are looking to Speed, Dance, Jam, Derby, or skate around with the kids outside, Riedell has the perfect pair of roller skates for you. Happy Skating!
