Jackson Figure Skates &

Ultima Figure Skating Blades

Jackson Figure Skates was founded by Donald Jackson (winner of the 1962 World Figure Skating Championships) and his brother Bill Jackson in 1966.  Together with the Bauer Skate Company they developed a line of figure skates which now are worn by figure skaters all over the world.  Jackson Figure Skates and Figure Skating Boots have become a leading brand for lightweight performance.  Most Jackson Figure Skates and Boots are heat moldable to help reduce the break-in time. 


Ultima Figure Skating blades are worn by elite and professional skaters all over the world.   Ultima figure skating blades are manufactured with a harder edge than most standard blades using EXT technology.  The Ultima Matrix Figure Skating Blades are made from lightweight aircraft aluminum and high grade stainless steel.  The Matrix blades are lighter than traditional blades and need fewer sharpening.  These blades paired with the lightweight Jackson Figure Skate Boots can make it easier for skaters to jump higher.   The latest innovation from Jackson is their Apex blades.  The tapered edges and the titanium coating makes them have a faster glide along with longer edge life.  Kinzie's Closet is the preferred online dealer for Jackson figure skating boots and Ultima Figure Skating Blades.  We also have Jackson figure skating packages for beginner figure skaters.
