The very best way to determine which size to order is to use our Sizing Tool, located on the product page of each skate model.
Make sure you use the Sizing Tool on the page of the product you are interested in, and repeat the Sizing Tool on each product you are considering: Not all skates are sized the same, you may be a Skate Size 6 in one model, but a Skate Size 5 in another.
Enter your shoe size, variance, width, and an optional (but recommended) foot measurement, and the Sizing Tool will suggest the best size for you in that model.
Kids - If the skates are for a growing child, we suggest purchasing one size larger than the Sizing Tool recommendation. This will allow for some room to grow into.
** Don’t be surprised if your Skate Size is very different from your Shoe Size. **
We provide fitting guidelines on most of our protective gear product pages. You will need to take some basic body measurements and compare with the provided guidelines. If your measurements are between sizes, you can choose to go either up or down a size. Protective gear stretches out a lot as it breaks in. If you size down, your gear may be uncomfortable and binding when it is new, but will usually break in nicely. If you size up, you will have comfort from the start, but they may stretch out too much as they break in.
