Pretend you're gliding along the frozen Thames with the Italian designed Roces® women's Brits ice skates. They're crafted with a plaid fabric upper, anatomic padding, and a carbon steel figure-style blade; the lace-up closure makes them easy to put on and take off.
Comments about Roces USA Roces Women's Brits Ice Skate Superior Italian Style & Comfort:
4th brand of skates I've tried on (decided to order because they looked handsome online and it said Italian style). Well, they ARE good looking but that's it. I have trouble believing any Italians had a hand in designing this uncomfortable, unyielding skate. The upper feels like molded plastic, is rigid and does not bend to wrap around the foot and ankle for needed support. The eyelets for the laces are made of flimsy fabric sewn between the upper and the outer fabric. (To tighten ice skates, you need metal-holed grommet eyelets for strength and durability). When I tried tightening the laces, the lace actually ripped on the oddly-placed side hooks! Since these do not tighten, there is zero ankle support. You'd break an ankle trying to skate in them. I've been unable to find a real leather shaft skate with any footbed or ankle support. Retailers, please carry half sizes in WIDE! Many people like me need wide to accomodate a slip-in arch (or warm foot bed liner) and wool socks!
