2 Categories of Jackson Skates
1) Jackson Figure Skates
When Don Jackson won the world championships in 1962, he knew he wanted to share his passion for figure skating with anyone and everyone who wanted to skate. Since then, Jackson figure skates have blazed trails and popularized figure skating to be the worldwide phenomenon it is today.
2) Jackson Recreational Skates
Maybe your ice skating is just for fun, in which case the Jackson skates for you will have a softer boot. Skaters rave about the comfort and light weight Jackson builds into these skates.
The Jackson Figure Skate Package
As a package, Jackson skates combine the best of their designs in figure skate boots with the blade often thought to be uniquely light yet durable. Chances are, Jackson skates are the figure skates that are most in demand at your local rink by those skaters working on their double jumps and those just trying out their first single jumps.
Jackson Figure Skating Boots
Figure skating boots may look the same as yesteryear's, but at least with Jackson skates, materials are just as sturdy as always. But somehow Jackson figure skating boots are lighter without losing the support they are noted for. Jackson's innovations include a heat moldable boot.
U Shaped Cuffs
The now widely copied U shaped cuffs allow their figure skating boots to give skaters the flexibility they need. Generally, with wider toe areas and narrower heels, Jackson skating boots grip the foot firmly yet comfortably.
Cut Resistant Uppers
Figure skates that come apart easily are not a good investment. Jackson skates are designed to be used for years of ice skating as their figure skate boots can easily take it when a blade clashes with a boot.
