How do you size Bauer skates?
The general rule of thumb when sizing Bauer ice hockey skates is to go down 1.5 sizes from your shoes. For example, if you wear a size 10 shoe, it is best to start out with an 8.5 size hockey skate. For junior and youth size skates, you will want to go down just one size from your shoe size.
How do NHL players lace their skates?
I (usually) recommend that players lace their skates snugly through the middle part of the foot (the part of the foot that needs the most support), but that above the ankle (the top eyelet of the boot) they should keep them somewhat looser. More advanced skaters may choose not to lace the very top eyelet.
Why are skate laces waxed?
Skate laces stay tighter longer; water causes the lace to stretch and loosen, and the wax creates a barrier against it. Waxed laces are easier to thread through skate eyelets. They won’t fray the way non-waxed laces do. They’re easier to grasp and tie.
What age is too late for hockey?
It’s never too late to play hockey! Many people don’t start until they are in their 20’s or even 30’s and play in men’s league hockey.
How tight do NHL players tie their skates?
So how tight should you tie your skates? You should tighten your laces so that your feet fill as much of the boots negative space as possible. Your heel should be firmly locked into your boot with only enough room to wiggle your toes.
How are hockey skates size?
The difference between men’s shoes and women’s shoes is 1.5 to 2 sizes. So, if you wear size 9 women’s shoes, that translates to a men’s size 7.5 or 7.0, which would put you in a size 6 senior hockey skate. More simply put, go 3 sizes down from your women’s shoe size in order to find your hockey skate size.
