Buy Figure Skates for Your Child – What You Should Know

When looking to buy figure skates for your child isn’t as easy as going into a store and selecting the right pair of shoes. Like any sport, there is a risk for injury, and a quality pair of figure skates is a key component to help keeping your child safe on the ice. For such an important buy, it is important to do a little research before you make your final purchase.

Before purchasing your child’s next pair of skates, consider these helpful tips:

  • Buy Ice Skates from the experts. When you buy figure skates from us, not only do you get a great deal, but we also offer years worth of expertise selling ice skates. Don’t go to a sporting goods or department store that has no knowledge of figure skating – for a quality purchase along with solid advice, buy from a reliable, professional source.
  • Make sure it’s a correct fit. For a good ice skate fit, there should be no extra room in the boot and even if your child is still growing, do not buy a few sizes to big to give her growing room – this is dangerous and will affect her skating performance. Also, most boots and blades are sold separately, although, in the beginning stages, boot and blade combinations are acceptable. To help decide your perfect fit, reference our easy-to-use measuring chart.
  • Personalize your purchase. Depending on your child’s ability level, practice schedule and other factors, you may need to purchase certain ice skate brands or particular quality of boot and blade combo. Each brand we sell tailors to specific style of figure skating and sometimes even a specific level of skater. So research our wide variety of brands to see which is right for your child’s skating needs.
