I received these skates as a gift and I like them well enough. The sizes do run big though - they are a size 9 and I have to wear a double layer of thick socks so they fit comfortably. (It was the last pair and I REALLY needed them, so exchanging them was not a possibility plus since they do fit well when I double up on thick socks, it's ok.) So I'd suggest ordering a size smaller than you'd typically need if you get these. They are nice and comfortable. One thing though - I only had the chance to use these for 4 sessions so far (2 hours each session) and I noticed that the vinyl on one of the boots is already cracking around the heel. They're good recreational skates for a tight budget but if the vinyl is already cracking, I'm not sure they'll hold up so well with time and continued use. I know of some skates that are a mere $10 more that don't have this problem. Maybe I just had bad luck and got a pair that isn't the usual quality for this brand or something, but I'd keep this fact in mind when shopping for skates regardless.
