Whats the smallest size inline skate you can get?

I'm looking for children's skates, does anyone know from what size inline skates start from? Also, where is a good place to get some?

Decathlon have childrens' ones from size 8 or so if I remember right, and they are adjustable so can grow for a couple of years. I got some for my niece - they were either £15 or £25 (can't remember now).

It's best to start them on quads as they don't have enough ankle strength for inlines
I'd speak to Asha or Q about it as they both teach kids

For a six year old I bought some skates which start at 11 but extend all the way to size 3

Cheers all, I was hoping to find skates for children younger than 6, like maybe for a 3 year old or younger....lol.
