Default Boys 5 vs Mens 5

At the rink, my son wears a 5. I believe it is a kids 5, as they are the orange kids skate, where as the adult skates are the tan suede. I need to order skates and have decided on the Riedell Dart Ombré Skate. The sizes listed, are all in men's sizes. Is the men's 5 and boys 5 the same? Or do I need to size down to a 4?

This is the skate he wants.

This is a 10 year old? That’s a mens 5.

Kids' 5 and Men's 5 are the same, at least in the USA. (Kids' 5 and Women's 6 are the same, too.)

Derrick, my daughter just turned 11. She wears a women's size 8.5. I think you've forgotten how big kids' feet are.
