Lightbulb Opinions on Rollerblade skates?

After looking at the sizing chart on aggressivemall.com It looks like im a size 4 maybe 5. And all I've found so far in those sizes other than adjustable are Rollerblade brands? .... and options on them?


example:

or

http://www.inlinewarehouse.com/descpage-RBDT3.html

or
http://www.skatepile.com/skates_skates12.html


Maybe even Roces if not Rollerblades?

I've googled a little and it seems your right in that the skates at a lot of places start at size 6. I have found these:

Rollerblade TRS

http://www.skates.com/Roller-blade-T...0771000787.htm

I haven't bout from their and I haven't skated that skate before. P.S. If your between sizes always go for the bigger size. Your probably growing. I wonder if a size 6 would work with extra socks or something.

The adjustable skates dont work for my feet unfortunately. I just bought a pair of Razor Junior Adjustable Skates but they were too narrow in the width. Anyone know anything about Roces or Rollerblades?

Wow!! Such tiny feet! Ummm.. Rollerblade sucks now. Personally I'd prolly go with the UFS M12's. Those are classic skates. I remmeber when they first came out YEARRRSS ago (like 12 years). And now that they're UFS they're better. And they're the lightest you can get. But u could give the TRS a try. Just take that ugly āss brake off! Hope this was helpful
