How do I try on the new skates I have just purchased to see if they fit correctly? Last Updated: 08/19/2011
Picking the right product the first time around is important when placing orders online. Many of the skates and equipment we sell have sizing charts and sizing information.Sizing Guide, but here is a quick step by step instruction on how to try on your new skates.
1) Sit down, lace up and buckle both skates completely. 2) When you are standing straight up - Toes should reach/touch the end of the skate 3) While standing up, bend your knees. The straighten your legs and crouch down again. Do this at least five to ten times. 4) When you are skating (while indoors on smooth or carpeted surface), knees should be bent allowing feet to slide backwards into heel pocket creating a tiny bit of toe room in the front 5) If the skates fit snug and your toes are touching the tip of the skate - You have yourself a pair of skates with the perfect fit.
