Fun facts about the 265: This boot is Riedell's first collaboration with derby skaters - Ivanna and Dish in 2005 (former owners of Sin City Skates) - to create a design FOR ROLLER DERBY. Riedell considers it an update to their 1980's 295 design (which featured similar stripes and materials but a narrow art boot fit, higher ankles and higher heels), but the internal fit and features were put together by mixing and matching the best of many Riedell boot designs. This is (and has been) our best-selling derby boot since its release.
This boot can come in either the D/B (slightly wide ball, slightly narrow heel) or B/AA (slightly narrow ball, extra narrow heel) boot width. Available in sizes 3-13, including half sizes.
*All Riedell Skate Boots are in Men's sizes, please adjust your size accordingly, typically women go down 1.5 - 2 sizes.
