I will preface this by mentioning that I play roller derby and am used to indoor high quality skates. I bought these to use outside because they were so cheap. These are decent beginner skates, but if you are looking for speed and stability I would buy a better quality skate. The wheels that come on them are probably the worst wheels I've ever skated on, and I recommend changing the laces when you get them to a shorter version so you don't trip. Pretty good skates for a non-serious skater or children.
