What We’re About


Resurrection Skates first opened in Dallas, Texas in 2013.  To our knowledge, this was the very first store of its kind that focused new AND RECYCLED skate equipment. Our love of roller skating and roller derby combined with our passion for reducing, reusing and recycling is the dream of founders Sydney Smith aka ODB, Weapon XAnita Riot, and Danny Beaver. Resurrection is an independent and privately held company and the founders manage the day-to-day business.

Our purpose and mission is to provide an affordable, conscientious option to our customers, give back to the community by purchasing gently used items, provide a fair return to its owners and achieve sustainable profitability.

Resurrection Skates is unique. We buy and sell NEW and GENTLY USED skates. We carry a full selection of products for derby, rink, and recreational skaters. From your most basic skate package to a fully customized package.  Our pre-owned inventory is bought directly from you. We hand pick only the most requested items that can be resold at a fraction of retail cost. Our prices range widely depending on the brand, condition, and other factors. Bring in your current and former favorites for cash on the spot!

Our new inventory comes from well known brands such as Luigino, Atom Wheels, Bionic, SISU, and more.  We are adding inventory daily to provide you with the very latest and greatest skating gear.
