My daughter, who just received these as a gift, asked me to re-insert the little foam insert into her skate. In doing so I noticed a thick, round piece of plastic jutting up in center of the heel area of the shoe. It was the size & shape of a pencil eraser, definitely not something that you want jutting into the heel of your child’s foot.
I then pushed my hand further into the shoe to see if there were any more, and found a nail. The nail was sticking up into the shoe over a 1/4″ of an inch. Seriously unacceptable! FYI, I am not referring to the two rivets that are visible if you remove the liner, I am talking about a metal spike sticking up into the shoe cavity.
If you have or are given these skates, please remove the foam inserts and check the insides of the shoes before giving them to a child. Better yet, purchase a higher-quality skate from a brand that exercises proper construction and quality control.

I personally wanted to purchase the roller derby city lites skates for my daughter during the Christmas Holiday’s because they were different from the other skates. I enjoy the fact that they lite up and that they were a little different from what most kids would wear but they were sold out. I am kind of glad that they were because she was still excited to have these skates than the other skates because purple is her favorite color and she didn’t have to worry about replacing the wheels once the light became defected. Overall, a excellent pairs of skates and good quality. I recommend to purchase one size up from your normal size. Wondeful!
