Really pleased with these. Got trouble getting my size available but eventually I got them as they being sold out very quickly. My size is 7/7.5 UK depending on the company. I went for size 7 at first as read that skates should fit snuggly. My bad... had to return them and go for size 8. Was worried that my feet arch will hurt as in my previous skates, but not in this case. Good fit for the feet and ankles. Running very smooth and fast with the ABEC7. Hope will grow my skills fast with them. Absolute bargain for the price. You can replace the frame in time. Highly recommended.
A good, durable boot. Good for aggressive and freestyle skating.
I'm a UK 11 size shoe/trainer usually, and the on-site sizing guide recommended that I get these in a 10.5, even considering my wide-ass gorilla feet. I ended up going with my gut and getting the size 11 boot, and they're very snug. I don't think a 10.5 would've fit me.
I've been skating daily for a while on these, I've done many parallel and power-slides and they've been holding up well. I even exceed the recommended maximum weight limit of 100kg by 10kg and they've been fine.
I'd say that they're even a good boot for beginners or those getting back into inline skating, though with the 80mm wheels, they might feel a bit slippery at the start.
High quality skates - sturdy, stylish and comfortable, with really smooth bearings that make it easy to get good speed up. I came back to skating during lockdown after 10+ years, and these have eased me back in nicely!
The main reason it doesn't get a 5* review is that they ship with an utterly useless brake. I live in a hilly area and after 2 30-45 minute skates the brake had totally worn away.
The replacements are cheap (£5ish) and easy to fit, and wear normally - so why they don't just ship with this version of the brake, I have no idea. Now that I've fitted the replacement brake, they're spot-on.
This is my second pair of inline skates from Decathlon. I can tell that this model is really amazing as it is fast and stable, the frame is short enough allowing us to do tricks more easily, the parts are exchangeable, and has become very comfortable for my feet after 4-5 times skating on them. Other than that I got some heavy rain while skating last time and the boots got badly soaked. Back home it was very easy to get them removed for wash and they got perfectly clean in no time. Drying was so easy and convenient too. My only small complaint is in relation to the original abec7 bearings that come with it, which are still new, but are already making some squeaking noises.
When it comes to the price for what you buy, Decathlon takes the prize for this one. Although, they slightly raised the price, I still went with the MF500's.
After some research, I found that this model is directly comparable to models that cost double, if not even triple, the money with other brands.
One drawback for me was the insole which is pretty basic and replaced it with an aftermarket gel sports insole (about £8-£10) and later replaced the bearings as well, but this is what makes them great: you begin with a great "base" skate, see if inline skating is for you and upgrade it as you go to fit your needs. They feel a little heavy at the start but my feet got used to the weight.
Overall, this is a great first skate and would recommend everyone to start with this if they are unsure if they want to start skating as they get some good quality that will have a positive feedback on their decision whether to take up the sport or not.
As a skater with several sets of branded skates already, I wanted to see what a £70 set of skates were like. Skates can be expensive and this can put people off from the start, I wanted to see if there was a quality skate that could give that amazing skating feeling at a price that wasn't going to break the bank; this is what Oxelo have done with the MF500. The skate feels solid and stable, the liner is comfortable, the cuff provides adequate support and, with two buckles and laces, my foot feels firmly planted in the boot. I did feel some pressure points on the inside of both ankles after the first few sessions, but these subsided quickly with continued use. Though not heavy, these do feel marginally heavier than my other skates, but this is not something a new skater would be aware of. The 86a wheels roll very well, allowing for speed, traction, and stopping power. There is a brake in the box but this is not something I use. The Abec 7 bearings are fine; they roll smoothly enough and can be changed when needed. The frames can be adjusted both front/back and laterally to suit a variety of skating styles. The only major issue I have with these is the two-piece wheels axle bolts. Sadly, the frames are not threaded, meaning the wheel axles come in two parts and require two hex keys for removal. These are provided but this makes wheel rotation a real chore. These hex keys are also used to adjust the frames; however, the keys provided are very short and it would be much easier to use a longer key. The only other issue I've encountered is a rubbing at the base of my left calf; though it's worth noting that I've only been using these for a month and this is something that's likely to subside once they bed in more. Who are these skates for? Personally, I'd say beginners, or intermediates on a budget. It's important to provide beginners with the best skating experience in order that they continue to enjoy the unique feel that skating can provide; these skates definitely do that. For the intermediate skater on a budget looking to push their skills and don a set of quality skates, I'd say: add these to the shortlist. I've had immense fun bombing around on these, and they've given skates three times the price a good run for their money. It may not be published here, but videos tell a story better than words on a page. For anyone interested in seeing these great skates in action you can check out Rich Hayter Skater on YT. To Oxelo, I would say: please change the two-piece wheel axle bolts. Enjoy!
I got them recently for my 15th birthday ! These roller blades are amazing as they give a really smooth ride on any surface including concrete! They go to a great speed whilst maintaining control! The wheels are amazing bcs they are made of the best material that roller blades can have , they are also really big and wide which aids a comfortable ride and makes u feel like ur flying! I'd recommend this product to anyone who is looking for a good pair of roller blades. they are amazing value for money and I enjoy them so so much !
They are absolutely gorgeous. Great for beginners, rolling very smoothly and comfortable overall.
Excellent skates. A little more then we have paid from other stores but they were not as specialised as this company. They are great quality and sturdy. Had a slight issue but was sorted out promptly by the fabulous customer service team. Delivery was quick. I am very happy with my purchase and will use Decathlon again as well as recomending them to others.
Great Value. Great perfomance. Great design.
