The fit itself should be very snug, allowing you to stay in control of movements. Very snug doesn’t mean uncomfortable: You should still be able to wiggle your toes, and there shouldn’t be any pressure points. Find the right fit.
Should you buy skates a size bigger?
Bauer, CCM, and True hockey skates normally fit 1 to 1½ sizes smaller than your shoe size. For children, it is acceptable to order a half size bigger than that to accommodate growing feet; however, wearing skates any larger will cause blisters and will break down the sides of the boot.

Is rollerblading a good workout?
“ Rollerblading qualifies as cardio, and low-impact cardio at that,” Pedemonte says. “Anyone new to working out, getting back into the swing of things, or with pre-existing muscle or joint issues can benefit from the easier movements allowed by rollerblading while still improving your heart health and muscle endurance.”
How do I make my inline skates more comfortable?
Don’t worry about having a super straight back, let it arch a little bit like a cat so it’s a bit relaxed forward. Try varying your position by bending your knees more or less. You can be too low which can put pressure, but you can also be too upright.
Why do inline skates hurt my feet?
This skating malady is caused by pressure from a stiff skate tongue (the part that goes behind the laces, on the front of your ankle/top of your foot). If the skate is laced tightly, the tongue cuts into the tendons of the ankle, causing pain, redness, and swelling.
Do you size up or down for figure skates?
The general rule of thumb is 1.5 sizes down from your shoe size. Since shoe sizing can vary from brand to brand, it’s best to measure your feet in the following manner.

Do you buy roller skates one size smaller?
