Custom skates

In 1945, Paul Riedell and his wife Sophie founded Riedell Skates with one goal in mind: to produce and offer only the finest quality skates available in the market. By manufacturing only top-quality, hand-crafted skating boots made in Red Wing, Minnesota, the founders built a reputation for supplying the world’s best skates with exceptional fit and comfort.

A member of both the ice and roller skating Halls of Fame, Paul also desired to make skating available to people of all ages and abilities – not just the pros. The result was comfortable and affordable skates that incorporated the same attention to detail and quality found in every Riedell product. Whether you are interested in a comfortable skate that accentuates your style or are looking to gain a competitive edge, Riedell has a skate for you.

In addition to providing the best products possible to skaters everywhere, the Riedells committed to making sure ice and roller rinks across the nation were stocked with high-quality rental skates. It’s a legacy that Riedell is proud to carry on to this day, more than 70 years later.

In the world of roller skating, Riedell Roller has no equal. As the most recognized name in the roller skating industry, Riedell offers a wide variety of skating boots and accessories for all roller skating specialties, including derby, rink and speed, rhythm and shuffle, jam, artistic, and outdoor. For the truly demanding skater, Riedell offers the finest quality skating boots available with a comfort level to match. And with their diverse collection of leather colors and hand-stitched custom graphics available on most of the roller skating boots, you can own a one-of-a-kind pair of skates that matches your personality.
