Roller Skates

So for my 16th birthday my parents are buying me a pair of skates, I dont know how to skate but I plan to learn and play pick up games with my friends. I'm a size 11 in normal shoes.

What is your question? Your best bet is to actually go to the store and try on different skates to see which ones fit you best.

Like Guitarmy said, go to a store and try some on. You'll be miserable and could even injure youself if your skates don't fit. That said, here's a rough sizing chart. http://www.inlinewarehouse.com/RollerHockeySize.html

If you plan on playing outdoors on a rough surface like asphalt, try to get wheels that are very hard, something like 83a or higher. If you're indoors, get a 76a or lower.
