Comfort

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.

Warmth

Rec skates are constructed with special material specifically designed to keep your feet warm, so no more cold toes on the ice.

Easy lacing

Gone are the days of endlessly winding laces through hooks and eyes. Rec skates are designed for quick lacing, making use of Velcro or simple latches.
