So I think it may be better if I get an adjustable pair with just the buckles, but I don't know where to start with those as it doesn't look like there are many options in that area (most are laces). I'd also like a smaller wheel (that means slower right?) since on the hardwood it's VERY fast and unsteady (which could be me LMAO) but seems much faster on smooth surfaces than I'd like while I'm learning. I'm just afraid to go out with them/attempt to go outside with them being so lose.

I'm gonna keep trying (multiple socks, etc) and see if I can get them to fit like they did the first few times I wore them, as I really, really, like them.. but if I can't, I guess i'll look at the youth/adjustable ones.. So if anybody has ideas, I'm open to them. Still trying to keep them $60 or under though :'(

I'm really sad about this.
Adjustable kids skates donít seem to be a good fix for poor fitting skates. Get skates that fit. Itís natural to feell unsteady on loose skates because you are unsteady. The skates must repond to your foot to work correctly.
