Make their first pair a great pair
Designed for the beginning skater, the RW Wave Jr delivers comfort and style for tiny feet at an affordable price. The boot of the Wave skate features a soft-padded lining and is built around a proven Riedell last for a fit that has been renowned for years - even for the smallest feet! The Wave Jr is the only skate we carry that is built with nylon trucks, but for only up to size 3, we find the rigid nylon material (not plastic) holds up very well for young skaters.
Real abec-1 precision bearings and high-rebound indoor/outdoor urethane wheels complete the RW Wave and provide a smooth roll for your kids to enjoy.
Recommended for recreational outdoor and rink skating. Check out the Junior Derby section if you're looking for kids roller derby skates!
Jr sizes 10 - 13
Youth sizes 1 - 3
These run a size large, so most of our customers order the same size as their child's shoe size, to give them some growing room.
Note to Parents: Unlike the kids' skates from toy stores or sporting good stores, the Wave skate has fully adjustable trucks, standard-sized jr skate wheels, and real precision bearings. That means that even these little guys are maintainable and upgradable, with components that you can replace as they wear down, extending the life of the skate.
We can't tell you how many times parents have brought us sporting good skates that are basically toys, with hard, plastic wheels and fake bearings that stopped rolling after a few weeks, and are angry that we can't fix them. The RW Wave Jr is a simple little skate, but that's well-made, and at a great price -- our highest recommended skate for the tiny ones who are just starting out on wheels. When you buy skates made by real roller skate manufacturers, you can bet that you'll get the most life out of your investment.
