It is necessary to get the right fit for your ice skates. Take your time to try a few different options to get the right pair for your feet.
There are two parts of the skate: the boot and the blade. With new ice skates, you want to find a boot size that fits you well. Here are a few things to consider when trying on your new skates.
- What type of socks will you be wearing when you skate? Try the skates on with the type of socks you will be wearing. You want to have room in the boot for thicker socks if it's more comfortable to do so.
- Pay attention to the width of the boot and the length. You want a snug fit all around your foot.
- Consider the height of the boot as well. Is it a height that is comfortable for your leg and ankle? Or does it feel that it will cut into your leg at an uncomfortable place?
