Our first choice of skates for our students is a skate that offers excellent ankle support and with adjustable trucks for learning edging, which helps you gain control of "steering" your wheels. For those on a budget, we recommend the Chicago 400/405.
Another decent quality skate for beginner skaters is the Dominion Esprit, which is available in sizes 8J (toddler) to adults size 13.
For size 5 and up (adults) we recommend the Chicago 800/805.
And if you are seeking a full leather boot for toddler to adult and a really good beginner skate is The Super Duper Pacesetter.
If you don't live near a professional skate shop (normally located within your local skating rink), let us know and we can recommend a skate shop that can help you choose the right skates and ship them directly to you. Email at email@example.com
