Not sure what skate you need?  Check out our Choice Guide for GAM Figure Skates below.  This guide will help you narrow your choice down to the GAM figure skate that will be best for you based on your skill level.   The lower level boots will be lest stiff which means they will have less support.  The higher your skill level, the stiffer (more supportive) the boot will be.  The stiffness ratings vary a little with each brand.  If you would like the full comparison guide that includes all brands as well as other country's skating levels, Click on ourSkate Brand Comparison Guide.

GAM Figure Skates & Ultima Blades

GAM Skates are one of the top boots of choice in Canada.  They are similar to Jackson but made in the traditional style with full natural leather uppers and soles. This brand has a wider toe box and is higher in the arch vertically.  It is a good choice for those who have several toes the same length as the big toe, a medium/high to high arch and medium to narrow heel.  This brand is also a good selection for those who have a combo width foot (wide ball and a more narrow heel).  Shop GAM figure skates, GAM figure skating boots and Ultima Figure Skating Blades from Kinzie's Closet, the preferred online dealer for GAM Skates.  We also have GAM figure skating packages for beginner figure skaters.


**FREE SHIPPING! Orders of $75 or more!
