Hockey "skates" need to have steel blades for ice hockey or urethane [plastic] wheels for roller hockey. The boot part of the skate should have good support for the ankle and be made sturdy enough to protect the foot from the impact of pucks and hockey sticks.
Boating In the sports of skating and ice hockey, skate blades are part of the athletes equipment.
Ice skates are different because they have blades on them and they are designed differently than per Se roller skates. Roller skates have more padding and have wheels on them, while figure skates have blades on them. If one wanted to compare a figure skate to a hockey skate, for example, a hockey skate does not have toe-picks while a figure skate does. Hope this helps :)
hockey skates are skates that u use in hockey. they are different that figure skates because there is no pick, the blades are slightly curved, and they connect to the skate in the front and the back.
because it has smooth surfaces
The blades on hockey skates are only as sharp as the wearer has honed them. Professional ice skates (hockey skates included) are very sharp and are honed after every session. If there is contact, the blades can cut flesh. Guards are put on the blades immediately after coming off the ice. Blades that are dull are not as fast on the ice. Being cut with the blade of a hockey skate is not a primary concern of athletes.
The skate blades are typically made of tempered carbon steel, coated with a high-quality chrome.
A pump hockey skate is a skate that you pump air into so it fits your foot better. Reebok is the manufacturer of them.
skate and play ice hockey
Figure skating dates back to prehistoric times. The first skate blades appear to have been made of bone, and to be over 3000 years old. Examples of early skate blades have been found in Norway.
yes. It would seem logical that if you're going to play "ICE" hockey , one would have to be able to skate.
