Checklist For Children’s Skates

Processing and Safety
  • High-quality workmanship of the skates is important to ensure the safety of the child. For example, there should be sturdy seams.
  • Skatepads offer safety and protection, so that your child can not hurt himself on the blades.
  • Shoelaces offer particularly good grip.
  • A longer shaft at the back makes it easier for beginners to skate and minimizes falls.
  • We recommend already pre-ground runners in hollow grind.
  • A seal of approval such as TÜV gives you assurance of good quality.
Intended Use
  • Ice hockey skates or figure skates. The intended use is decisive when choosing the right skate.
  • For starters, beginner models are best, with which your child can get a feel for the ice.
  • In addition, there are sliding skates, which are also very suitable for beginners and are cheaper.
The Right Size
  • The fit is very important for skates.
  • A good comfort and secure grip should be given.
  • Only with suitable skates your child really has fun on the ice.
  • Skates should not be bought too big. A few thick socks are no problem in skates, but it should not be more.
  • Mitwachsende sk ates can be adjusted between up to 5 sizes and thus adapted to the foot of the child.
  • The skates should be sufficiently padded inside for comfortable riding.
  • We also recommend a combination of lacing and Velcro clos ures for optimal grip.
