Performance cut with removable lace cover!
The Rogue 796 skate is great for beginning to intermediate roller derby skaters, or anyone looking for a quality roller skate with a genuine leather boot, but doesn't want to break the bank. This is a favorite skate of many great derby players when they were first starting out, and also makes a great all-around skate for any style of rink, street, speed, or recreational skating!
Starts at size 1, so great for Junior Roller Derby, too!
What you get:
The Riedell 796 boot is made from genuine leather, and double-stitched to prevent over stretching. The interior lining is comfort soft, but without excessive padding, so the boot really hugs your foot more like an upper-level competitive skate boot. A removable lace cover helps keep your laces tucked in tight, and protects them from tearing when you fall, and the collar provides flexible ankle support for active roller derby play. The open toe box design is also good for new skaters who aren't yet used to their toes being restricted in skates, or anyone who prefers greater toe movement.
Fully removable lace cover has a white "R" logo, or you can choose from several new color overlays! Mix and match with your wheel colors, and rep your team or league!
The PowerDyne Thrust nylon plate is lightweight and durable -- great for learning on until you're ready to splurge on more expensive lightweight aluminum. The trucks are metal with fully adjustable double-action cushions.
Wheels & Bearings
Sonar Flat-Outrageous wheels work well for the entry-level skater, and are a grippy 88A hardness that are great for learning and work best on concrete. Abec-5 bearings keep you rolling with precision and reliability.
Sizes 1-14 (men's sizing, medium width, full sizes only)
Kids: Should order the size equal to the street shoe size. Boot runs a little big, but this will allow room to grow, without being too large
Men: Order street shoe size, but shoe size 10 and up may want to order one size down to get snug fit, as boot will stretch.
Ladies: order 2 sizes down from your street shoe size. If you're on the half size, round down. Boot will stretch, and you want a snug fit that doesn't get sloppy.
