1. Skates MUST have a brake

Using a brake is probably the easiest way to stop on a pair of skates. The brake also extends beyond your heel so it helps to prevent you from falling backwards.

2. 1/2 - 1/3 of the first and last wheel must extend beyond the boot

With a balance set up, the skate sits in between speed and maneuverability. Big wheels means speed and shorter frame means agility. For a beginner, a balanced set up is highly recommended.

3. Comfort is still key

Ultimately, skates have to be comfortable. It cannot be loose. Your toes and heel should be touching both ends of the skate. However, your toes cannot bend. The sides should be tighten until your foot is securely fastened within the boot. The boot should follow every movement of your foot. If your foot move inside the boot after tightening, the size is wrong. 

4. Difference between Hard & Soft Boot

For users who are totally new and never done any type of similar sport, go for a hard boot because it helps you stand straighter and balance better. Those with experience in ski-ing, ice skating or any similar type sport can consider the soft boot for more comfort

5. The Best Wheel Size

The size of the wheels matters. Smaller wheels keep you lower to the ground for better balance. Try not to go above 80mm for beginner skaters. For taller skaters with bigger foot, get bigger wheels so 1/2 - 1/3 of wheel extend beyond the boot (see step 2).

6. Skates must have mid Strap

Beginner skates usually have a mid strap that hold your ankles firmly in the boot. This will help you reduce injury and increase your balance.
