The rubber wheels and toe stopper are fitted beneath the metal plate track under the sole.
The Quilt roller skates come in four colours: green, blue, off-white and nude. If you are not a fan of the skates at the bottom, the brand also has a version where the rollers are taken off — essentially, it will just be the sneakers alone.
