Figure Skates Size Comparison Charts
**PLEASE NOTE THE INFORMATION PROVIDED HERE IS A GUIDE ONLY & DOES NOT GUARANTEE A PERFECT FIT. THE CUSTOMER MUST CHECK THE SIZE & FIT THEMSELVES WHEN RECEIVING HOME DELIVERY OF ANY SKATES PRIOR TO SKATING, BAKING OR INDEPENDANT SHARPENING OF RECEIVED SKATES. TO CHECK CORRECT SIZING WE SUGGEST TAKING THE INSOLE OF THE SKATE OUT, PLACING IT ON THE FLOOR AND STANDING ON IT WITH YOUR FOOT WITH YOUR HEEL AGAINST THE BACK OF THE INSOLE. THERE SHOULD BE NO MORE THAN 0.5cm GAP BETWEEN YOUR BIGGEST TOE AND THE END OF THE INSOLE IF YOU HAVE STOPPED GROWING AND 1cm IF YOU ARE STILL GROWING. YOUR TOES SHOULD NOT TOUCH THE VERY FRONT OF THE SKATES WHEN STANDING IN THEM IN THE SKATING STANCE (KNEES BENT) WITH THE LACES TIED AND YOUR HEELS SHOULD NOT LIFT WHEN WALKING IN THE SKATES WITH THE LACES TIED TIGHTLY. OVERSIZED SKATES OR SKATES WITH TOO MUCH MOVEMENT CAN RESULT IN YOUR SKATES BREAKING DOWN IN A NUMBER OF WAYS. IF YOU HAVE THE CORRECT LENGTH BUT YOUR SKATES ARE TOO TIGHT OR TOO LOOSE THEN THIS IS EITHER A WIDTH OR SKATE SHAPE ISSUE AND SHOULD NOT BE CORRECTED BY GETTING BIGGER OR SMALLER SKATES.**
Edea & Risport Figure skates
MEASURING YOUR FEET:
This is the best method your getting the right size for you in Edea & Risport Figure skates. If you follow the below method and then match your foot length with the noted brand size (Edea & Risport list their sizes in mm) you will find the best fit. Please remember you can give yourself up to 5mm more in the skate size compared to your foot measurement to allow for breathing room and up to 10mm if your feet are still growing is ideal.
Stand straight with a sheet of A4 paper under each foot.
The leg below the knee should be perpendicular to the floor and not at an angle. Another person should then trace around your foot with a thin nibbed pen that should be kept upright and as close as possible to the foot.
Once this is completed draw a line on each sheet between the extreme points of the heel and toes and measure it.
Using this method you will also be able to see the length. This is the size of your feet.
NOTE: The accuracy of the trace and thickness of the pen can affect this method
NOTE For adults or fully developed feet there should be no more than 5mm of wiggle room. However, for children with growing feet experience has established that a 10mm gap is ideal.
