Wanted: Ladies Size 6 Riedells, B/Medium or C/Wide width, preferably with a Coronation Ace or MK Pro blade (or similar.)  A 133RS or 255TS would be perfect.

Too bad it is not 5.5!  I have a pair of 255 TS with Coro Aces!

Let me check the pair I have in my car! They're used and I've had them for about 13 years, but they've still got a lot of life left in them. They have majestic blades, though.

Don't know the make of the reidells, unforunately, I'm going to have to research. :)

Thanks!  If you get a chance, can you measure the insole so I can figure out if the width and length will fit the skater's foot?

Irene - this is for a different skater than we discussed earlier.  Size 6 is popular this year.

I'm bringing them up from my car this afternoon. I will take a photo of them, too. They are kinda beat up from a lot of falling I did growing up, but they are still very usable, and nothing some polish or skate tape couldn't fix.

I will let you know the insole measurements. :) Like I said, they have Majestic blades, so the blade may need to be replaced if they want coro ace blades. I know John Wilson blades on Facebook does monthly contests for coro ace blades! You submit a photo or video of your skater skating and then they have a chance to win blades. :)

OK! Here are the measurements. I'm going to attach some photos for you as well. They show some wear in the front where I've toe picked and ate ice, but they're still fairly stiff.

They have a 10" majestic blade

Insoles: 10" long, 3" at the ball of the foot, 2" at the heel.

Image showing who it was made by was under the insole.

I have used 6-A Silver Stars w/MK Pro blades.

They were used for about 3 months before I broke my leg in 2001. Then used for 1 year for only about 3 hours a week. Then sat 4 years.  The used for about 5 months about 3 hours a week.

Oh, I also have a pair of used old-model  6-C Jackson Elite Plus with  BRAND NEW Graf Luasanne blades. I got the boots used and it turned out they had some punching done. I was going to use them for rink guard duty, but now will not need them. The blades are brand new I got them half price clearance.
