The Best Vegan Roller Skates!

No matter your reason for choosing the vegan life and no matter your skating style, we’ve got a vegan friendly roller skate for you! There have been lots of changes in material technologies of late and that is good news for you my cruelty-free friend because that makes for roller skates that are more accessible price-wise and more durable performance-wise. To make your search for roller skates easier we’ve made a little list of the vegan skates we love and recommend here at RollerFit.

Before we crack on with our skate recommendations, we’ve got some hot tips and takes on choosing your vegan roller skates.

  • Invest in some toe guards! - Due to their material construction we always recommend customers purchasing vegan skates get a set of vegan toe guards to protect their new 8-wheeled babies.
  • If the environment is a crucial factor in your vegan life think about what your skates are made of – A lot of vegan roller skates are made of PVC (polyvinyl chloride) which is a plastic that takes a ridiculously long time to biodegrade. If a PVC skate is within your budget or if you just fall in love with a pair, don’t feel crummy about it. Instead, think about how you can re-sell, re-gift, recycle or repurpose the skates once you’ve loved them too much or are looking to upgrade.
