Whether hockey skates or figure skates are your child’s choice, quality is the key. Poor ankle support is painful and discouraging to new skaters. To test ankle support, squeeze the top of the skates in your hand. If you are able to easily press the sides together, support is poor. If your child is complaining of cold toes, his or her skates may be too tight or their socks may be too thick. Quality skates can be purchased from:
