One Christmas, my cousin and I each received a pair of roller skates.  They were beautiful with smooth magenta wheels, a thick leather ankle strap, and a key to ensure a perfect fit as our feet grew.  We practiced diligently on the basement floor, spinning, falling, and giggling all the while.  Later, we graduated to menacing the sidewalks.  Who wanted to walk when they could roll.  I don't think they sell these adjustable skates anymore.  But wait, they can be adjusted to fit...and i still have the key...
