About Ice figure skate suppliers
I’m always asked about what skates a skater should get.
Unfortunately, there is no easy answer because it depends on each individual’s feet, height, weight, skating level as well as budget!
Before I go any further, I highly recommend that anyone considering purchasing a pair of skates first consult with their coach or the rink’s skating director and ask them what shop they recommend.
You cannot underestimate how important it is to be properly fitted and matched to the best pair of boots and blades for your unique needs!
A reputable and experienced skate technician can even adjust boots and blades to customize stock equipment to the skater by heat molding boots and even repositioning blades!
Your coach or skating director knows the best ones to go to, and most of them will work within your budget.
