Long gone are the days when you could only watch the per­for­mance of fig­ure skaters on TV. Cur­rent­ly, with the advent of win­ter, skat­ing rinks are being installed in the squares of large cities, and in many shop­ping and enter­tain­ment cen­ters, ice rinks oper­ate all year round.

Skat­ing is a use­ful and fun pas­time, which can be done by the whole fam­i­ly or a friend­ly com­pa­ny. But first you need to choose the right skates.

  • The main qual­i­ty of skates is that they should be com­fort­able. Since in fig­ure skat­ing a strong load goes to the legs, when choos­ing skates, spe­cial atten­tion should be paid to the com­fort and con­ve­nience of the foot in sports shoes. Skates should be light and fit you in size and full­ness. Experts rec­om­mend choos­ing skates half a size larg­er, and it is bet­ter to try them on with a toe.
  • When try­ing on the skates you are about to buy, lace them all the way around your leg. In the toe area, the lac­ing should be weak­er, in the area of ​​\u200b\u200blifting the leg — tighter, and at the top — again weak­er. In a ful­ly laced skate, your ankle should bend, albeit with effort.
  • It is worth pay­ing atten­tion to the mate­r­i­al from which the boots are made. For begin­ners in fig­ure skat­ing, plas­tic skates are suit­able — they are quite rigid and fix the legs well, pre­vent­ing the leg from twist­ing. “Vet­er­ans” need to choose leather boots — they are warm and absorbent.
  • The blade is also an impor­tant fac­tor when choos­ing skates. Remem­ber, the thick­er the blade, the eas­i­er and more com­fort­able it will be for you to ride. In addi­tion, it should not be straight, but should slight­ly curve in the toe and heel area.
  • If you are a begin­ner skater, do not for­get to pur­chase pro­tec­tion along with skates — spe­cial knee and elbow pads.
