If you’re looking to get started in derby, there is no better option in the entry level class than the R3 Derby. A favorite with skaters since it debuted, the R3 boot features class-leading build quality – including a special grade of vinyl that is more durable than standard vinyl and a detailed boot construction process that was developed from our decades of boot-making experience. Derby is a demanding sport though, so to ready the R3 for derby use, we added black tough scuff leather toe caps to prevent abrasion, reinforced PowerDyne Thrust nylon plates for a firm base, and 88A Radar Flat Out wheels that grip on all kinds of surfaces. Upgrade: Take a look at PowerDyne Magic Cushions for your plates – they’re inexpensive, easy to install, and they provide a very progressive and confidence-inspiring feel to your skates. They’re available in multiple hardnesses to suit your exact needs.
Here is how to get the perfect Riedell Skate fit.
Get a sheet of paper (some of you may need 2 sheets for this to work)
Put your foot on the paper and trace your foot.
Get a measuring tape and measure the big toe to the heel (Take note of how many inches long your foot is.)
Now match the inches up with the right size.
