Skate Sizing


Choosing the correct skate size is a very important task and usually even more important than choosing the skate model! All high-quality skates will have a break-in period and will adjust over time to the skater’s feet. Some will take longer and some shorter, but while you want to have a comfortable ride you do not want to have the skates too loose… The correct fit will determine much more than just the comfort - it will define how much control, power transfer, and agility you would have while skating, and even would affect the balance.

Please remember that the skates will feel the worst when you try them for the first time and from there the fit will only improve!!!

While various skating styles and skaters themselves have different preferences, below are the general instructions on how to determine the perfect fit for your new skates.

WHAT SIZE SHOULD I CHOOSE?

Most inline and roller skates are manufactured and sold in European sizes (EU), so your US / UK sizing could be a wrong idea to use due to conversion inaccuracies. Furthermore, even if you know your European sizing, every shoe and skate manufacturer has a slightly different fit and sizing, therefore your standard shoe size might not assure a perfect fit but that is the best way to estimate your skate size. In any case, the inline and roller skate size should be either equal to your shoe size or no more than one size up or down from it.

Based on our experience, the best way to determine your skate size is to take a look at your current pair of skates and/or running shoe labels for MM / CM / MP / MONDO numbers. These numbers are indicating the maximum foot length that will fit into the pair, while MM shows the measurement in millimeters and CM/MP/MONDO is centimeters. Having these numbers along with the EU sizes from these shoes, you will be able to determine the size of the skates that you need by looking into the brand or model-specific sizing chart (usually located in the Sizing tab under the skates photos or as one of the product photos). If cannot be located, please send us an inquiry and we gladly will help you out!

Important: Many shops are recommending measuring your feet to determine your skate size, but we have found that this leads to too many mistakes and do not recommend that. If after following the instructions above you are finding yourself stuck in between two sizes, you could measure your feet according to the directions below. In this case, your shoe size is still the defining factor, so if the measurement is showing more than one size up or down, something is wrong with the measurement! If your foot is wider than average, please go one size up. Usually, Seba, FR, and Adapt skates fit wider than average, Powerslide and K2 average, Flying Eagle and Rollerblade average to narrow...

Still, want to measure your feet? Here is how to do it:

You’ll need paper, a pen, a flat wall, and, if possible, a buddy to help. It’s best to measure your feet later in the day after you have been on them for a few hours to account for swelling.
Find a hard floor with a flat wall. Tape a piece of paper down so that it touches the wall. Stand on the paper in bare feet, with your heel just touching the wall.
Have your friend take a book and place it so that it just touches the tip of your longest toe. Mark the spot where the book meets your toe. Do this with both feet and use the larger of the two measurements. Measure your foot length in millimeters, if possible. If you measure in inches, be sure to measure in 16ths of an inch.
Choose your size from the manufacturer's sizing chart. The “Max Foot Length” is the longest foot measurement that will fit into that size. The US Men’s column lists the sizes found on the box.

SIZING FOR CONTROL OVER COMFORT

Our sizing advice is targeted at freestyle or dance skater who wants a very snug fit in their skate to enjoy maximum control. Our instructions will give a fit that prioritizes control over comfort. If comfort is a higher priority, or if you have an especially wide or oddly shaped foot, you may do well to choose a slightly larger size. If you are near the boundary between two sizes, you would probably be better off going with the larger size in case you prefer comfort over control.

Notes about Width
In general, the Plastic Boot skates with a built-in liner have a narrower fit through the foot, while the boots with a removable liner and soft boots have a somewhat wider fit. The Carbon is a bit wider through the toe box than the plastic boot skates because the carbon fiber boot has less flex. As a rule of thumb, skates with built-in liners and "regular" liners will have less adjustment room.

We gladly will guide you in case you have any further questions. Email us at [email protected]

To help you better, please include all the sizing information off one or two pairs of skates or running shoes that you currently have including EU/US/UK/MP/CM/MM/MONDO, etc...

USD Aeon Inline Skates Sizing Chart

According to Powerslide, Aeon boot runs smaller compared to other brands. It is recommended to add at least half a centimeter to the foot length. Moreover, boots tend to run narrow in width.

These skates are manufactured in European sizes (EU), so your US / UK sizing could be misleading due to conversion inaccuracies. Furthermore, even if you know your European sizing, every shoe and skate manufacturer has a slightly different fit and sizing, therefore your standard shoe size might not assure a perfect fit but that is the best way to estimate your skate size.

Based on our experience, the best way to determine your skate size is to take a look at your current pair of inline/roller skates and/or running shoe labels for MM / CM / MP / MONDO numbers. These numbers indicate the maximum foot length that will fit into the pair, while MM shows the measurement in millimeters and CM/MP/MONDO is centimeters. Having these numbers along with the EU sizes from these shoes, you will be able to determine the size of the skates that you need by looking into the sizing chart below.

Important: measuring your feet to determine your skate size would be a good point of reference, but at the same time it leads to too many mistakes. If after following the instructions above you are finding yourself stuck between two sizes, you could measure your feet according to the directions posted in our Sizing Instructions.

USD Aeon 68 Roman Abrate Pro Aggressive Skates. Here is what Roman sats about these skates:

After skating the USD seven for five years I wanted to try something new to help me go faster and air higher in the big parks and transitions. So I started experimenting with using 68mm wheels in the Aeon 72mm shell and quickly fell in love with this new setup. The Aeon’s unibody concept plus larger wheels allow me to maximize my energy transfer on larger transitions helping me to maintain speed in my contest runs.

On USD Aeon 68 Roman Abrate Pro Aggressive Skates, using a slightly smaller wheel in the 72mm Aeon shell gives me plenty of space to still confidently do all my h-block grinds whilst slightly reducing my ride height without losing any excess speed. I also worked with my wheel sponsor Undercover to develop the apex wheel and have included these in my setup. I selected a unique colorway, added a soft top, the new improved cuff, and of course my favorite MyFit 2nd skin liners for comfort and performance to complete my latest and fastest pro skate

USD Aeon Sizing

USD Aeon boot runs smaller compared to other brands. It is recommended to add at least half a centimeter to the foot length. Moreover, USD boots tend to run narrow in width.

Please note: your shoe size is the defining factor! Almost never, the size of the inline skates will be smaller than your shoe size. If your foot is wider than average, please go one size up than your shoe size.

USD Aeon Sizing

If you want to use the foot length information to narrow the sizing down, the best way is to get that information from your running/sports shoes sizing label. Almost always they will have one of the following: MP/MONDO/CM – length in centimeters or MM – length in millimeters.

  • The US shoe sizes mentioned in the sizing table are US men.

    If I could give these skates 10 out of 5 stars, I would. I have skated ever since I played inline hockey as a little kid, and these are the best skates I have ever owned, period. I picked them up because I was wanting something that I could carry a bit more speed with in the bowl. I was previously skating Valo TV3 and could hardly get enough speed to even stall on the coping. Now with these skates I can air out of the bowl and transition onto ramps outside of it. The speed is insane and makes skating so much more fun.

    I was a little skeptical about the liner at first just because it was so slim, but once I heat molded them to my feet and got skating in them, I was surprised at how comfortable and supportive they were. The ankle support is bomber, but I would still prefer a little more cushion for the soles of my feet. That being said, I don’t plan on picking up new insoles, so it doesn’t seem like its bothering me that much. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    The boot itself has a brittle, hollow sound to it, but ends up feeling pretty solid under your feet, especially with the 45 deg straps cinched down. I do like that the portion of the boot that holds the laces is made of a leather-ish material that forms onto the top of your foot when you tighten the laces.

    But what I can’t get over is how fast they are. The wheel size and composition combined with the light weight of the skate just makes them fly.

    They were sold out of every other place online, but ProSkaterPlace had them, shipped them fast, and I had no issues.
