We help you find the right hockey skates
Buying skates can be a challenge as there are many factors to consider. A hockey skate should always be adapted to you and your weight and strength. You also need to consider how you move on the ice and your Player level.

Size of hockey skates
In order for the hockey skates to sit comfortably and for you to be able to move quickly and smoothly on the ice, you must have the right size. If the skates are too big, it will affect your balance and skating on the ice. You can also get chafing sores and Blockers on your feet from the foot moving in the skates. We use 3D foot scanners from BAUER and CCM to help find the right size.
Find the right fit
A hockey skate should fit tight and have as much contact as possible with the foot but with some room for movement in the toes. Always stand up when you try because the foot is wider then and you minimize the risk of buying skates that are too narrow.
Find the right stiffness
It is important to find the right hardness/stiffness on your hockey skates so that your skating is not affected. The more weight you have, the stiffer skates you should have. If you buy skates that are too stiff, it will be more difficult for you to ride. It is important to be able to flex the foot forward to make maximum use of the skates. We recommend tying all the way up to take advantage of the skates' flex.
Find the right heel grip
A good heel grip gives you stability at the same time as you have mobility in your legs and feet. Slide the heel back into the skate to make sure you are getting enough support. You should not be able to lift your heel.
