1. We are owned and run by skaters!

Ain't no-one as passionate and caring about skating as we are! We have been deep in the skate community for over 17 years as skaters and are widely respected in our skate circle. So we absolutely have a vested interest in giving you an excellent experience as well as excellent skates! This also means we know lots of stuff about rollerskates too. We have a HUGE amount of accumulated knowledge - we're basically walking encyclopedias!

2. We have a physical store as well as online

You can try on boots and skates as well as look at products in person AND speak to a real live human. Our specialty is our skate fitting service where we spend a whole heap of time with you getting the right fit. In fact sometimes customers spend upwards of 3 hours choosing their dream skates!

3. Our stock

We are like an Aladdin's Cave of rollerskates! We have full fitting stock of most of our major brands and unique access to many more products that we can custom order in for you. We often operate as a J.I.T (Just In Time) business which means we keep small amounts of stock in the shop and re-order in often. This means we can constantly update our products, getting in the latest things for you and we're not sitting on huge amounts of old products. If you don't see something on our site but know it exists....contact us and we very well might get it in for you! All our online orders are fulfiled from the stock we have at our physical premises, so we always know what's available. In order to be able to carry as many items as possible and give you the most amount of stuff to choose from, some things we order especially in for you at the point of purchase.

4. Our Distance Fitting Service

Created in 2019, we realised we had many UK customers who simply couldn't get in to see us. So we started this service where we can send multiple sizes of skate boots to you to try on at home, then once you've decided we mount them up and you got yourself a new pair o' rollerskates. This has been super successful in getting the right fitting boots for our customers across the country.

5. Postage tracking, Easy Returns and Exchanges

We send all our items tracked and our system sends you an email with the tracking number so you know exactly when to expect your order. We have a returns and exchanges portal accessible from your customer profile on our website which enables you to request returns and receive returns labels via Royal Mail or Parcelforce.

6. Personalised Website Content and Product Knowledge

Since day 1 we have always photographed our products in house against our iconic DTS back drop. We want you to know that we have physically looked at and tested most products in our store. When we get new products in, we can then write about them from experience. You'll find our product descriptions, blogs and FAQs full of personalised content rather than just cut and pasted from the manufacturer's website.

7. Savant-level dedication to knowing stuff

Want to know if that wheel will fit that axle? Which plate size will fit that boot? Which wide truck is compatible with which plate? Which boot you will fit based on what your current boot is despite the sizing being wackadoodle different? We can tell you because we have spent years worth of our time collating information, creating spreadsheets and compatibility charts.

8. We're Great When We Make Mistakes!

We can't get it right all the time but we reckon the mark of a great business is being able to get it right when we've got it wrong. Rest assured you won't need to get stern with us and start a fight to get a wrong righted. We want to make sure you'e happy so don't worry if you need to tell us we did a boo-boo!

9. We're Inclusive!

We are woman and queer owned. We are big fans of the LGBTQ+ folk, we are trans-inclusive and anti-racist. We support many local community groups and are a welcoming and safe space for those who belong to marginalised communities.

10. Free Stuff!

Everyone likes free stuff right? We always include goodies in your online orders and when we send your gear out.

SPARK by Derby Laces 7mm Metallic: We have spent several years developing this metallic lace. These laces are 7-8mm wide and are suitable for most all skates and shoes. They are made out of high qualas been braided for strength and durability. They have a metallic sheen to them that is truly remarkable. The metallic qualities of these laces cause them to create a slight friction in the lacing process giving them a lot of the positive features of the waxed laces. They stay tied and tight and where you want them, while being easier to unlace quickly. They are EXTREMELY LIGHT for anyone trying to shed all excess weight in the skates. They have a hardened plastic tape tip with the word SPARK on them. 
Check out these other options if sparkly isn't your thing:
Derby Laces 10mm ''Waxed'' and ''Style'': These laces are a super high quality polyester lace made out of long strand, polyester fibers braided together to form a super tough skate lace. It then goes through a double waxing process where the lace is first saturated with high quality wax, and then a second process removes the excess wax. This makes our laces less "waxy” than a lot of competitors. It removes the candle effect where other laces are stiff and shed wax during use. These laces are really nice to touch, yet they perform extremely well and provide all the benefits of a waxed lace. People that traditionally hate waxed laces, typically find these to be really nice, and prefer them over the non waxed. They stay tied tight and where you want them. The tips are molded out of the lace material itself and can often be repaired by reheating. 
CORE by Derby Laces 6mm Waxed: This is a narrow waxed lace inspired by our original line, but designed to be 6mm wide and able to fit most any skate, shoe, boot. Their construction and durability is identical to the 10 mm line. 
PERFORMANCE WAX

Derby Laces are treated with the perfect amount of performance wax that feels awesome to the touch. They stay tied, tight, and where you want them while skating.

DURABLE FIBERS

Derby Laces are braided from a blend of high quality, high tenacity fibers. They are exceptionally soft, have high tensile strength, and are resistant to abrasion and moisture.

ATTRACTIVE COLORS

Derby Laces are available in a large variety of attractive colors and designs. We are constantly expanding our selection of colors and sizes to suit the needs of our skaters.

MOLDED TIPS

Derby Laces feature a tri-fold tip molded out of the lace material itself. There are no plastic or metal bits to peel off or break. The lace tip is easy to lace and extremely durable. Simple damage can be repaired by flaming the tip.
