Kids Skates

Looking to buy kids ice skates?

Ice skating is a great activity your children will surely enjoy. It isn’t just loads of fun; it’s also a fantastic workout. Getting your kids to participate in ice skating sports like figure skating and ice hockey also teaches them to develop their individual skills as well as their social skills all while having fun. If you are looking for the perfect diversion for your kids that doesn’t involve sitting around the house with a gadget all day, if you want to get them into an engaging physical activity, if you want them to develop good coordination skills or if you want them to learn the merits of proper training and practice then ice skating is a great way to go. And thanks to indoor skating rinks, you won’t have to wait until the lakes freeze to get to skate. You can enjoy it all year round!

But before you let your kids hit the ice, it’s important that you equip them with right gear namely, and a good pair of kids ice skates. A good pair of ice skates doesn’t just allow your child to skate well it also gives your children the right amount of protection.

What are the qualities of a good pair of ice skates?

First, they have to be made of stiff or rigid material. Typical ice skates are made of several layers of leather or sturdy plastic. This is for proper ankle support. Most of the child’s weight will be anchored on their feet while they skate. Your kids’ skates should lend them adequate ankle support, so they won’t cave in or injury while your child tries to maintain their balance or when they glide over the ice.

Secondly, they have to fit well. The secret of good skating performance is that you wear properly fitted ice skates that don’t hamper your movement or cause you discomfort in any way, especially if the child wants to do more than just casual skating. Kids tend to grow out of their skate shoes quickly, so when you’re buying them a pair, getting a half-size larger boot will accommodate their growth.

Thirdly, they must be the correct type of ice skates. Your kid’s skates should match their chosen activity. Regular ice skates are okay for casual skating but if your children are looking to advance their skills — say in competitive sports like figure skating or ice hockey — then a corresponding ice skate should be purchased. They should also match your child’s ice skating skill level. Don’t get them advanced skates if they are just beginners. Otherwise, it will be difficult. Ease them into the sport. Likewise, don’t limit your child with entry level ice skate boots if you want them to get better at skating. Some ice skates do not allow them to jump or spin or go as fast as they want to.

Choosing the right pair of ice skates can be very confusing at times. But getting familiar with what’s available on the market can help you narrow down your options for your child. Here are the most common kinds of ice skates you’d typically find at stores:

Recreational Ice Skates

Recreational ice skates are your regular ice skates. They look a little bit like figure skates but with average looking skate blades. They’re perfect for beginners and are usually the kind you find available for rent at local ice skating rinks. Get your child their very own pair if you plan on having them skate frequently. It’s a way to ensure that they fit adequately to help them get the hang of ice skating quickly.

Figure Skates

Figure skates are specially designed to execute the jumps and spins typically incorporated in figure skating routines. You can distinguish a pair of figure skates from other states because their blades have toe pics at the front tip which bite into the ice. This helps your child jump or dismount without risk of slipping.

Ice Hockey Skates

Ice hockey skates are made of sturdy plastic and are usually more robust looking than your dainty figure skates. They protect you child’s feet from stray hockey pucks that might injure their little toes. The skate boot is also a little closer to the ground which makes it easier to balance.

Speed Skates

Speed skates or racing ice skates have long blades that allow your child to zip over the ice as fast as they want.
