And that’s where we come in.

For over 70 years, we’ve been leveraging the finest components and designs in the industry to develop womens roller skates that offer unparalleled results for our customers.

Finding Your Ideal Roller Skate

Many new roller skaters are surprised when they realize just how customizable skates can be. Almost every facet of a roller skate—including its boot, plate, cushions, wheels and bearings—can be built to suit the specific skating style, preferences and limitations of its wearer. For athletes who are new to the world of skating and haven’t figured out exactly which components fit them best yet, we recommend roller skate sets. These comprehensive offerings come complete with all the parts you’ll need to start skating. Best of all, Riedell offers sets for almost every type of skating imaginable, allowing you to find a fantastic product regardless of your skating style.


Here’s a brief rundown of the different skate set variants we offer:



Speed is the name of the game when it comes to our womens rink and speed skate sets. These products pair low-cut designs that enable fantastic ankle flexibility with wheels and bearings that optimize acceleration and speed, leaving competitors in the dust.

Because Riedell developed some of the first derby skates in existence, we have extensive experience with building skates that help derby athletes thrive. Our derby skate sets feature form-fitting boot designs, resilient plates and state-of-the-art wheels to ensure maximum speed, flexibility and control. We’ve also outfitted our derby skates with hardy leather toe caps to stop abrasion in its tracks.

Rhythm skating necessitates highly flexible and maneuverable equipment to keep up with all of its slides, dances and shuffle skating routines. That’s why our womens rhythm skate sets make use of high-top boot designs, quality dance plugs and wheels that offer unbeatable performance and responsiveness.

Outdoor skating can take place in a variety of harsh environments, which is why our womens outdoor skate sets emphasize durability and safety above all else. These products feature highly durable high-top boots, tough plates and sturdy wheels to keep wearers rolling smoothly regardless of what’s beneath them.

Artistic skating encompasses a wide range of disciplines (including precision skating, pairs skating and solo dance), and many of these art forms involve demanding jumps and landings. In light of that fact, Riedell’s artistic skate sets for women feature comfortable high-top boots, impact-resistant plates and smooth, hardy wheels to boost mobility, durability and control.

Jam skating is an advanced art form that’s brimming with complex skating maneuvers and dance routines. To account for these demanding moves, our womens jam skate sets utilize lightweight materials, low-cut boot designs, dance plugs and advanced ceramic bearings, granting wearers full freedom of movement and an unbeatable level of comfort.

As roller skaters gain experience and confidence, they become more selective about exactly which boots, wheels and other components they’ll skate with. These athletes tend to forgo pre-made sets in favor of building their own unique skates. Skaters might even feel compelled to play with the aesthetic of their skates, making equipment that reflects their unique style and personality. Thanks to our huge selection of boots, plates, wheels, bearings and accessories for womens roller skates, Riedell can help you create a skate that beautifully matches your performance needs and preferences. Additionally, our ColorLab® enables you to further customize your skates through a host of leather, suede leather and metallic leather colors, creating a look that’s uniquely yours. Here’s a little more information on each of these customization aspects.



Riedell offers both High Top and Low Cut womens roller skate boots, allowing you to choose a design that matches your skating requirements. Our High Top boots typically boast strong ankle support, which is an invaluable feature for outdoor, rhythm and artistic skating. Our Low Cut skate boots provide superior ankle freedom, making them an excellent choice for derby, jam and speed skating. Feel free to explore our Roller Skate Boot page for more specific details on each boot design.

Riedell’s PowerDyne plates feature better stability, durability and efficiency than any other plates in the industry. These products combine revolutionary designs with strong, lightweight materials, delivering peerless performance across every skating style.



Our Radar and Sonar wheels are designed to provide exceptional grip, durability and versatility. Because they utilize the best urethane formulas in existence, we recommend Radar Wheels for high-level athletes and competitive styles of skating. Our Sonar Wheels are the perfect choice for recreational or novice skaters, pairing good performance with budget-friendly prices. You can find more information on both of these brands here.



Riedell’s KwiK® roller skate bearings provide incredible control and versatility, enabling faster acceleration and smoother handling across all skating forms. The swift, long roll these bearings offer make them particularly effective for derby and other competitive forms of skating that prioritize speed. Most importantly, KwiK® bearings feature ceramic Titanium Nitride coatings, allowing them to last much longer than traditional bearings.



Our top-quality roller skate accessories include footbed kits, laces, plate cushions, toe stops and more. These products enable even greater customization of both functionality and aesthetic, ensuring that your skating equipment delivers extraordinary results. Riedell also offers a targeted selection of skate protection items, keeping you and your equipment in great condition.
