Riedell skates is the only brand that makes beginner level skates in a wide width. Young beginner skaters under the age of 5 typically have wider feet. Riedell understands this and makes their beginner skates with a comfortable fit for young skaters. Jackson beginner skates are great for all age levels. Mens Jackson beginner skates like the Jackson Excel and the Jackson Mystique are great for recreational beginner skaters. The womens Jackson artiste js1790 and the womens jackson dj2130 elle are great beginner skates for skaters taking classes and needing more support to learn more complicated skills. The girls Risport Venus and Risport Antares are great beginner skates made in Italy and arrive with the blade attached. When you begin to skate, you will also want padding to help make falls softer. Beginner skaters typically fall forward on their knees and backwards on their bottoms. Having the correct padding for beginner skaters can make all the difference in making their beginning skating experiences good ones.
