Just about anything will work as kids have amazing balance and can adapt very quickly. If she's just starting out then something cheap is a good choice to see if she'll stick with it. I started on art skates which helped with the higher cut boot offering good ankle support. Upgraded wheels and plates followed as I got better. Then after I decided I really liked skating, low cut speed skates were the next step. You can usually find a good basic starter set of skates on Ebay or Craigslist. Or post a want ad on here, maybe someone has a decent set that won't cost you an arm and leg to get your daughter rolling.
