When choosing the right ice skates, first answer three basic questions:
For what purpose do I buy them? How well can I skate? And how often will I skate?
There is a big difference between skating on a pond from time to time, playing ice hockey several times a year or training several times a week. If you are a professional, your needs also change significantly. In general, the more expensive the skate, the better reinforced, stronger, better runner, lower weight and higher durability. Individual brands have their own individual tables and numbering. Bauer and CCM sizes are not the same, the differences can be up to an one size.
