The market is flooded with super low quality skate pads sold at the big box retailers such as Walmart, Target, Dicks, and Kohls. Make no mistake, these are toy pads and will offer little in protection from injury. We find that these pads are actually very dangerous to skate with.
We recommend spending just a few more dollars for a high quality junior skate pad set from 187 Killer Pads®. This is the pad set we sell and recommend for kids ages 4-8 and for youth. Your loved ones will have way more fun skating when they are properly protected.
For an important purchase, such as skate safety equipment, skip the big box retailers.
