Best Answer

Figure skate blades are typically wider than hockey skate blade. In addition to that, figure skates weigh less, allowing skaters to jump with a lot more ease and tend to allow skaters to be more agile. Figure skates also have a pick at the front/toe end of the blade to allow skaters to stop at a precise point, whereas the blade on hockey skates is rounded on the front. the ice skate also has a straighter blade, which is why they can have hard guards, but hockey skates can only ware those soft, round guards.
