Figure skating is a fun activity. However, it can be painful if the incorrect size skates are chosen. It is important to choose the right skate for your feet. Lots of people want to choose skates that match their street shoe size, this isn't appropriate. Skate sizes can't be compared to street shoe sizes because all skating brands size differently. From kids skates to adult skates, it is important to measure your feet to get the correct size skate to fit you.
It is best to measure the length of your feet while standing. Begin by standing on a sheet of paper. Take a pen/pencil and place a mark at the longest toe and at the heel. Be sure to keep the pen/pencil straight up and down. Do not curve to the toe or to the heel. It will add or take away from the measurements. Take your foot off the paper and then measure the distance between the two marks. This will provide your length measurement. It is best to measure your feet in inches as most figure skating brands base their sizing charts on measurements in inches. It is important to measure both feet. One foot may be longer than the other. Use the length of the longest foot and make sure you take your measurements in bare feet.
Once you have your length measurements, look at the figure skate sizing chart for the brand of your choice. Find your length on the figure skate sizing chart and it will give you the size boot/skate you need. Please note that not all brands have the same sizing. It is important to find your size using your length measurements for each brand of skate. Just because you are one size in one particular brand doesn't mean that you are going to be that size in every brand.Type your paragraph here.
In order to measure the feet for skates, it is important to be able to read a measuring tape. The standard measuring tape is read in 1/16". There are two types of measuring tapes, a carpenter's tape and a dressmaker's tape. The dressmakers tape is flexible and is best when measuring your feet for width. Please make sure that when you take measurements that you be as accurate as possible. Rounding up or down can keep you from getting the correct size skate or boot.
To find your width, measure the circumference of the ball of the foot in inches. In other words, measure all the way around the widest part of the foot. If you only measure the bottom flat part of your foot, then you will not be able to determine your skate width. All of the manufacturer's figure skate sizing charts for width are based on the circumference measurements. Place the tape measure so that it crosses directly over the joint behind the large toe (often referred to as the bunion) and the joint just behind the small toe. This will usually cause the tape to be positioned at an angle. Once you have your measurement, locate that measurement on the manufacturer's figure skate sizing chart in relation to the length/boot size.
