Riedells are great skates. The main difference between Jackson and Riedell is simply the last they are made on. If the fitter is telling you that your foot matches the Riedell last better than the Jackson believe them. I skate in Jackson right now by the way.Sep 18, 2018
From the owner of ESS: Everyone's feet are different. What is good for one skater may not be right for you. I have both skates. I have all kinds of skates. I have Riedell speed skates, Jackson Vista high top skates, Bont Prostars for outdoor trail skating, meetups, and sell a ton of Bonts for derby as well so it depends on the type of skating you intend to do and what is right for your feet.
