FROM SKATELOG FORUM HOST KATHIE FRY IN MARCH OF 2020:
This announcement is to let everyone know that after hosting the SkateLog Forum and its predecessors for nearly 20 years, I have decided it is time to permanently turn the forum over to a new owner and administrator. I cannot think of anyone more suitable to take on that role than my SkateLog forum co-host, Florida skater Jessica Wright. I am pleased to announce that Jessica has agreed to establish and host a brand new skating forum, configured like the SkateLog Forum, but with a new name and a new Web Site. This new forum is 100% owned and operated by Jessica.

NEW FORUM NAME: SkateDebate Forum
NEW WEB SITE: SkateDebate.com
NEW OWNER AND ADMINISTRATOR: Jessica Wright

Beginning Skaters Forum This is the place for beginning skaters to ask questions and share their stories. We would love to hear about your experiences learning to skate. No question is too dumb!

Default Boys 5 vs Mens 5

At the rink, my son wears a 5. I believe it is a kids 5, as they are the orange kids skate, where as the adult skates are the tan suede. I need to order skates and have decided on the Riedell Dart Ombré Skate. The sizes listed, are all in men's sizes. Is the men's 5 and boys 5 the same? Or do I need to size down to a 4?

This is the skate he wants.

This is a 10 year old? That’s a mens 5.

Kids' 5 and Men's 5 are the same, at least in the USA. (Kids' 5 and Women's 6 are the same, too.)

Derrick, my daughter just turned 11. She wears a women's size 8.5. I think you've forgotten how big kids' feet are.
