Best Answer

hockey skate sizes work with numbers and letters. the letter indicates the width of the skate. E is a wider skate than D. In any case you should always try on hockey skates before buying them to make sure they fit comfortably. Many hockey stores will have microwaves to help mould skates to fit your feet. If you buy skates online make sure you try on skate sizes at a local store to know for sure what size you are.

Are black ice skates for boys?

Yes, black ice skates are for boys. In figure skating, my theory is that black is supposed to distinguish a male figure skater from a female figure skater, who wear white ice skates. Most likely, if you are renting ice skates at a public rink, the skates will be brown or blue/black if they are hockey skates. White and black ice skates are for professional usage, and thus, should not be sold to a person with no skating experience at all.

What stuff do you need for ice skating?

If you're going there with your own skates; Ice Skates (to skate in), Towels/Tissues (to clean your skates afterwards), Skate Guards (to protect your skate's blades) and perhaps thick socks if necessary. If you're going without your own skates, you'll need to bring warm clothing anyway (eg; gloves, jumper, jacket etc). Skates will be provided at the ice rink for you to use, so don't worry about needing to buy a pair if you don't have any already (as they are very expensive and you might want to give skating a go before you buy some skates).

Is 32.00 good for figure skates?

Ice skates can get extremely expensive occasionally. You can buy basic skates for very cheap or get skates custom made and fitted with a separate blade to suit you. I would say that your skates are probably quite basic, not that there is anything wrong with that for a beginner. I would think that unless you are landing big jumps or skating very regularly, your skates will be just fine to buy! make sure that you sharpen them too!
