It makes a real difference!

Types of Womens Ice Skates

Recreational Skates

Recreational Skates

If your skating isn't trying to prove anything to anybody, the skates you need are probably recreational. What you want to purchase is a comfortable skate that will take care of your feet and ankles.

Find skates with details like closure systems allowing easy on and off. They might vary between hard or soft boots but will have a moderate toe pick. Select these as the perfect skates in which to learn.

Figure Skates

Figure Skates

Maybe you want to do some spins or jumps or other tricks. If so, you will want to shop for figure skates as these will have much stiffer boots and bindings. As such, comfort is not the first priority of figure skates.

Search for Special Blades

The blade will be a higher grade of steel and able to withstand the additional stresses a customer put on them on account of the weight loading applied while doing tricks. A more radical toe pick is found in these items in order to facilitate rapid direction changes.

These skates will offer additional padding in the heel to absorb shocks, but buying these skates is generally not for beginners notwithstanding the popularity that is seen around the Olympics. Wait for skills to improve before you choose to buy these.

Hockey Skates

Hockey Skates

Any brand advertising these products know you will be involved in a competitive contact sport. Since they have no toe pick whatsoever, they can be ok for learning in, but they really are great for this specialty sport.


When shopping for these, search for additional padding at the back and in the tongue but not much elsewhere. Firm bindings will assist in direction changes.

Sort Through Deals

Money is always a consideration (but not the only consideration) as you shop for ice skates. Narrow your search for the best brand for your needs. Then buying from a sale will offer you the chance to save a few bucks.
