The speed skates have longer blades
Speed Skates have the longest blade.
They're used for different purposes-- figure skates for jumps and spins and speed skates for speed.
figure skates are short, and have a "pick" at the front to help the skate to spins in the air. Speed Skates are more sleek, longer, and focoused on forward momentum insted of areal tricks.
That's because hockey skates are mainly for speed, and toe picks slow you down, and figure skates have toe picks which gives you more control.
The sports of figure skating, speed skating and ice hockey all need ice skates.
the similarities between speed skating and figure skating is that 1- they have to do forward crossovers when turning 2- they use ice skates 3- they have to know the basics of ice skating 4- they are capable of going to the olympics
I have ice skates.. because I am a figure skater.. Unless you play ice hockey, figure skate or speed skate there is not really another reason you would own some!
Speed skating is based on skating for speed, not style. Figure skating is the opposite, as it skates for style and not always speed. Speed skating requires: -Lower cut boot, almost like a shoe -Longer blades than artistic skaters -the objective is to go fast, not to impress the judges Figure skating: -based on competing in a number of levels and elements -consists of jumps, spins and footwork -artistry and difficulty are considered when judging -higher cut boot -regular length blade, but with a toe pick and edges
Ice skates are sports equipment. They are used in hockey, figure skating and speed skating.

Speed skates are designed to fast. The skates are designed with alot of aerdynamics , but must be comfortable to. The answer is speed skates because they have longer blades making turning sharp harder but holding a fast speed easier and in more control.
