Rec skates fit more like sneakers than traditional stiff skate boots. While they still offer ankle support, they fit more comfortably than skates made for high-performance sports.


Rec skates are constructed with special materials that keep your feet warm, so no more cold toes on the ice.

Easy lacing

Rec skates are designed for quick and easy lacing. Some options are also fitted with Velcro or simple latches instead of laces.


From the local rink to frozen ponds, rec skates are designed to keep you comfortable whenever you’re skating for fun.
