Reviving this again. I'm going to my first practice tomorrow and was concerned about finding vegan skates. I plan on looking at the brands and websites mentioned here, but in the meantime, does anyone know if there are any skates made in North America or the EU? I'm concerned about fair labor and wages. Thanks girls! I knew I could count on theppk!!

I just started derby and I have the Reidell R3s. They're fine for beginning skates but I'm a month in and can already tell the difference between them and higher-end skates. I'm hoping that nicer wheels will make them work for longer.

These toe caps are rubber instead of leather. I've only used them for a night. They slipped a lot, but I think I just didn't have them on tightly enough.

Supposedly Derby Vixen on etsy makes vegan toe guards if you ask and she has great reviews:
