Err, if hes a size 5? Worth a good measurement with a Braddock device, and used at that age work well, a new size every year.
I would disagree with this. Most will find inlines (not speed skates) when tightened properly to be more stable then quads. Quads have the wheels under the foot, inlines front and rear wheels are in front of the toes and behind the heels making them more stable front to rear.
