Exercise has long since been linked to massive benefits when it comes to mental health. So, we wanted to bring you a gifting idea this Christmas that will entice you to get moving and let you look stylish whilst you do. We are talking roller skates! Yes, boots on wheels that could have you racing around the rink, or possibly sat on your bottom. Either way you can enjoy skating as a family.

However, we all worry about money and the cost of skates, especially for children can mount up pretty quickly. That’s why we though we’d share just how affordable kids skates can be now and why, as well as help you find a pair that will just fill you with happiness at how pretty they are.

Skates that Last

Everyone knows that children grow, of course they do, as do their feet. This can make buying something like a pair of roller skates expensive long term. You could purchase a pair which are great for a month, but then a growth spurt happens and you’re back to buying again.

The good thing about some options for roller skates now, is that you can buy adjustable ones. We simply love these SFR Spectra Adjustable Quad Skates from Skates. The look funky with their red white and blue design which is perfect for both boys and girls.


The beauty in these particular skates is the new technology that is employed when making them. It means that not only can you adjust the length of the skate across 4 sizes, but also the width. An absolute gamer changer, meaning that providing you buy the correct size grouping, these skates will be comfortable and well fitting for quite some time.

Whether experienced or a beginner your little one is sure to love these skates for their look and comfort. They are also going to be impressed with how well they move due to the PU wheels.

They are a fantastic present for Christmas this year and available from Skates.
