Roller skates are for all ages. Almost everyone has had a pair of roller skates in their life. The simplest are roller skates that you can tie on and adjust in size. The earlier versions had steel wheels and a solid axle, so you could not steer. Then came roller skates with rubber wheels that could steer, but they were still strapped under existing shoes.
Then came roller skates and they rode much better. These roller skates have a fixed shoe, steer very smoothly and have a rubber cap on the front that you can push off with but also walk on. The roller skates turned roller skating through the neighborhood into a real dance party.
Roller skates have a wheel suspension with a rubber bushing just like a skateboard, only a lot smaller. This rubber ensures that you can steer easily.
The large soft wheels allow you to drive silently through the streets, without much vibration or vibration and without feeling every dent in the road. The wheels are available in the most beautiful colors and possibly with LEDs. Cheap roller skates often have rock hard wheels.
The bearings are the same as in scooters and skateboard and roller, particularly long. Each stroke rolls out 10 meters. Here too, cheap roller skates have bearings that hardly roll. This may be desirable for small children, but certainly not for older children.
Roller skates are more stable than skates and people with little sense of balance can also ride on roller skates. People with a good sense of balance can make the most beautiful pirouettes with it.
For children I would choose from the huge range of adjustable roller skates, as an adult I would always choose a fixed size. You will keep them for the rest of your life and they fit like a glove.
