Fell apart within a few days!
on 22 January 2013
When they arrived I thought they looked great, well padded, and shaped, so I put them away for Christmas. However on Christmas day after only one wear one of the knee pad straps was frayed and hanging off, this was before my son had even fallen over. Also one of the wrist guards velcro was sewn on so far round that the guard could not be securely closed even with a very small hand in it. As he wanted to continue using his new skates and skate board we had to sew up the Knee pad strap and use an extra velcro strap around the wrist guard, as it was Christmas day!
However when I complained to Kate's Skates they said they would give me a free T-shirt but could not do anything with the pads as we had sewn them!!! I need some pads and not a T-shirt, and mine are obviously not fit for purpose or a faulty set, was my reply.
The other knee pad strap has now frayed so I am sending them back, and hope they will be more helpful as we have had such a bad experience with this product.
I would not buy these again, they simply are too badly made for their purpose, either that or my set was a faulty batch!
