Looking to introduce your child to the joys of roller skating? If you’ve got a kid who wants to learn to skate, snag one of these Chicago Training Roller Skate Combo sets.
Each set includes two skates, a helmet, knee pads, and wrist guards. They come in blue or pink, and include a clear backpack that serves as both a carrying case and storage. The four wheeled skates themselves can be used two ways. Kids who have already perfected their balancing skills can use them in the traditional inline set up. Kids who need more practice can have their skates with the back two wheels across from each other, like a typical roller skate, to provide more stability.
But the best part of these skates? They grow with your child. They come in two sizes, toddler 10-13, or kids 1-4. Both the skates and the inner padding adjust as your kids grows to accommodate bigger feet. Each skate slides apart to make more room as they grow. And the tools you need to switch sizes come in the bag as well. The softer lining comes in two pieces that Velcro together, so it can adjust to growing feet as well. If your kid ends up loving their wheels, you don’t have to buy a new pair every time they change shoe sizes.
We use the spare helmets for friends, too, for skating and biking. And because the skates adjust, other kids can use them as well when we have extra kids at our house. You can’t go wrong with one (or more!) of these skate sets to get your kids off and rolling.
