My feed has been full of three things this year: banana bread, bad dance moves and approximately five bajillion people roller skating. Since I’ve personally had more than my fair share of bread baking and busting a move, I figured it was only fair that I finally dove into roller skating.
Maybe it’s because it’s an excuse to go outside or maybe it’s the way Instagrammers make gliding around on the boardwalk look so peaceful and easy, but I just knew I had to try it. The first step? Finding the perfect skates that are totally Insta-worthy.
Here are six pairs of roller skates that would look good on the ‘Gram — and are actually good quality.
Shop: C7skates Premium Quad Roller Skate in Lemon Pop, $139
If you follow me on Instagram, you know that I’m obsessed with color. It only makes sense that these bright yellow skates would be some of the first pairs to catch my eye. These gorgeous skates from Impala are the perfect hue (#nofilter) that will stand out no matter where you go. But if this lemonpop color is a little too bold for you, check out the aquamarine or peachy keen shades, which might be more your speed.
Shop: Cynthia Rowley x Impala Floral Rollerskates, $120
Cynthia Rowley can do no wrong in my book. Her brand is the epitome of California cool and gives me all the sunset-and-surf feels in the best possible way. That’s why these limited-edition skates featuring Cynthia Rowley’s signature floral print had to make this list of Instagram-worthy skates. Let’s just say that all your friends will be double-tapping.
Shop: Impala Pink Quad Skates, $95
I was attempting to teach myself how to skate backward when I clocked these skates from across a basketball field and almost fell on my face. They are that eye-catching. These edgy vegan leather roller skates from Impala are guaranteed to turn heads! The mix of leopard print and red wheels is absolute perfection.
Shop: Sure-Grip Stardust Glitter Roller Skate, $219.99
All that glitters is gold. Yes, I just quoted a Smash Mouth song. And yes, I definitely sang that lyric out loud just now. Go ahead and order a pair of these glittery boots for the ultimate roller rink queen vibes.
Shop: Impala Pink Tartan Quad Skates, $119.99
These gorgeous pink tartan roller skates are almost too pretty to wear. Almost! I love the fun Cher-from-Clueless vibe they give! If you decide to invest in these, you’ll definitely find yourself turning to this timeless style again and again.
Shop: Moxi Skates Beach Bunny Skates, $149
It was love at first sight with the Beach Bunny skates from Moxi. This shade in particular is called Periwinkle Sunset and is just one of many pairs from the brand that are even more stunning in person than they are online. Go ahead and hit “add to cart.”
