Home > Roller Derby Skate Boots
Roller derby skate boots are the most visible part of the skate, and arguably, the biggest factor in
creating comfortable roller skates. Roller derby skate boots come in a variety of styles and materials, and each has advantages and disadvantages depending on your preferences. The
best roller skate boot is always the one that feels the best, and because this is such a subjective thing, Medusa Skates highly recommends that you try boots on before purchasing them. If you can come into the store and get a custom fitting, that’s wonderful! But also consider trying on the skates of friends and fellow skaters who wear your size. This may give you a better idea of how the boot will feel once it’s been worn for a while. Also, keep in mind how long you intend to keep your roller derby skates. If you know you’ll be skating for a long time, opt for roller skate boots made of high quality materials, like leather, and invest in toe guards. If these are starter skates for roller derby, you might choose cheap roller skates made of a synthetic material.

There are pros and cons to choosing a leather roller derby skate boot vs. a synthetic skate boot. A leather boot can last decades with the proper care, but tends to be more expensive than a synthetic roller derby skate boot. Leather boots can be shaped or molded to your feet, but they may also be uncomfortable until they’re broken in. Synthetic roller skate boots often fit comfortably out of the box, but they lack the ability to be really shaped to your foot. In addition, they’re not quite as durable, and may have more wear and tear through heavy use than a leather boot might.
