Hockey Skates Sizing

What is the Proper Fit for Ice Hockey Skates?

- Skates normally fit 1 to 1-1/2 sizes smaller than your street shoes.

- While wearing the sock that will be worn when skating, slip your foot into the skate, pressing the ends of the toes against the front of the skate.

- In this position, you should be able to place one finger between the inside of the boot and the heel of your foot.

- Walk 10 to 15 minutes in the skates checking for comfort.

- An ideal fit for an adult would have the heel at the rear of boot and have the big or second tow lightly “feather” the toe cap while standing.

- For a player that is still growing, have the large or second toe “feather” the toe cap. Look behind the heel for any room. No more than 1/2" should be allowed.

-After lacing up the skate, make sure you walk around (with your skate guards, of course!) to test the comfort level of the skate. Remember, it takes a few wears to break them in! It is also important to have your blades sharpened regularly—about every 6-8 hours of practice or game time is ideal.

Here are a few important things to remember when fitting a skate:

Does your heel move? There should not be any movement or lifting with your heel. If your heel does move, it will take away from your performance.

The skate should be very snug for proper support to enable a good push-off without any movement.

And finally, it takes a few wears to break in a new pair of skates! Heat fitting is another option that helps expedite the break-in process.

HEATING ICE SKATES

Heat Fitting is a process in which skates are baked in a special oven to achieve a more perfect fit. This process helps round out the stiff sides and upper part of the boot, conforming to the shape of the player’s foot. Heat fitting shortens the break-in period by about half the time.

- The skates should last approximately 9 months.

How Can I Break In My Skates Faster?

- A good, clean way to break in skates is to lace them up at home.

- If you do this for a few hours it should help your feet feel better when you first skate.

- This is also a good way for young skaters to strengthen their ankles.
