If you’re looking to get started in roller derby, there is no better option in the entry level class than the Riedell R3 Derby roller skate set. 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 Blue Sonar Aura 92a wheels that have predictable grip, smooth roll, and excellent durability with little break in time.
