I was a little disappointed with these. They are really nice quality compared to other brands, and Mia was getting sick of her performance skates, but still, I'm not sure they're worth the $14. I suppose if you want her whole collection or don't want to wait until the current backorder date for the white skates, you should get them, but I don't like them that much.
The colors are a little sickening. I think it would have been really cool if AG had made white figure skates for Mia and a pair of regular, black hockey skates. Why purple?! It's just as bad as the JLY 2-in-1 skate outfit skates. (As a figure skater, the inaccuracy offends me, and as a female, the gender stereotype that girls would only wear hockey skates if they were sparkly offends me even more.) Someone posted above that the colors aren't "sugary" except in pictures, but I think that's the exact word I'd use to describe the colors.
Some of the reviews made it sound really simple to pull the little elastic band off the top two hooks, and it was, but it was a severe pain to get them back on! I spent a good five minutes trying to wrestle the "laces" back into the hook. The other problem I have with them is that the guards always slip off the skate blade. (Explanation for this is, one-piece guards like that have to have a plastic ring to keep them on skates, or they just fall off.)
The two pluses are that the skates look really good as hockey skates, even if they're the wrong color. And I really love the shoebox packaging for them!
Overall? I'd give them a B. I bought them because I'm a figure skater and had to have all skating-related pieces of Mia's collection, and because I wanted a pair of skates for some of my other dolls. But if I could only have one pair, I'd absolutely go with the white ones.
