Something to consider when buying a pair of ice skates is the level of support and comfort it offers, as some of the lower end skates provide foam padding which over time you will break in and it will generally shape to your ankle shape, however this process can be uncomfortable and take time. Furthermore once this skate has reached this point it will continue to change shape and wear down, eventually resulting in the skates being unbearable and making you think about buying a new set of skates or suffering the pain caused by the old ones.
Now this does not mean that skates from BlueCowHockey will not break down or be worn out over time. But what it does mean is that you could spend a long time breaking in your skates only for them to wear out sooner than you like, meaning you spend more time in an uncomfortable pair of skates than you do when they finally reach the shape you need.
Most of the better quality skates provide either a gel padding which when heated can be moulded to the shape of your ankle, providing instant comfort which should keep its shape, but if it doesn’t, you simply reheat the skate to shape it again, providing a much more pain free experience than having to break in the skates over time whilst trying to enjoy skating.
Although pleas note you can not just heat the skates in your oven and needs to be carried out by someone who know what they are doing
Another option is the ‘Pump’ ice skates which allow you to provide the support you need by pumping in air around you ankle for added support. This allows a snug fir which will shape around your ankle. The added benefit of this is that during a skating session or a game if you feel the support isn’t quite right you can simply change it by pressing the pump button found on the side of the skate allowing instant change without having to remove the skate or reheat.
This benefit is actually found on the Reebok range of ice skates from as low as the 4k range right through to the top of the line RBK 9k Ice skates. Showing that Reebok actively looking to offer the level of quality support usually reserved for higher end skates in it mid range. Definitely something in our opinion you should check out.
With that in mind, for those who have been skating for a while now may indeed want a higher quality skate that will be able to perform to the level you want whilst still providing the support you will need. If this is the case then we have something for you too such as the Reebok 9k pump skates, CCM Vector U+ 07 Skates and CCM Vector U+ pro Skates.
If you are looking for a cheaper more affordable skate which you can use to play or skate socially then the Reebok Fitlite Ice Hockey Skates, CCM V01 Ice skates or Reebok 1k skates are more than capable to meet your needs.
We also provide SBK Ice Skates for those looking for some skates that offer great vakue for money and do not cost the earth as they want to use them to begin skating and try it all out to see if they like it first, well these skates allow you to do that and more.
