If you’re looking to get started in roller derby, try the Riedell R3 Derby Roller Derby Skate.

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 Sonar Aura wheels that grip on all kinds of surfaces.
