hockey skates have a more curved blade then ice skates. also, they are probably made to be tied much more loose.
There are plenty of places in order for one to go to purchase Graf skates. However, it is strongly suggested that one should order from the main website of Graf Skates.

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.

Like any normal pair of skates, you get used to them. Graf Ice Skates don't take very long to get used to. Perhaps 1-2 hours. Some people do take longer to get used to their ice skates. Don't worry about it. You'll get used to them in your own time.
Ice skates were first used about 5000 years ago. These skates used animal bones for the blade. The first metal skate was made in 200 A.D. in Scandinavia.
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.
No, ice bumps do not ruin your hockey skates. Thanks, Sid
Two words, like figure skates, hockey skates, or roller skates .
The Reed Edge Ice Hockey Skates, $5,000 or the grafs
Neither, really. It mostly depends on what you decide to start with. People who skate in hockey skates generally fall over on the toe picks when they try figure skates, and even accomplished figure skaters say they feel like they're gonna fall over when they put on hockey skates. So it's pretty subjective. One thing I can say from personal experience, figure skates encourage much better posture and skating technique than hockey skates, as figure skates require you to straighten your back out much more to skate in/not fall over on the toepicks in them compared to hockey skates, I started in hockey skates and switched to figure like a week ago, so yeah. The only bad part of figure skates is, if you get a higher end pair to just start out in, the toe picks will be close to the ice, so if you lean forward much at all, you'll fall on your face. The other issue is, up to about the 80s, figure skates were made of a single layer of leather, that you could move your ankle around in, like a combat boot. I find these really really hard to skate in, due to the lack of ankle support, compared to hockey boots. I'm sure if you start in them, you can eventually get used to them, but after starting in hockey skates, I could not at all. However, newer figure skates are as stiff/stiffer than most hockey skates, so that's no longer an issue, but I'm just saying this if you find some cheap $20 brand new Chinese "figure skates" or find some older skates at a garage sale or something.
There isn't a simple answer to what brand is best for an adult novice hockey player. The main reason it isn't simple, is that skates have to offer excellent fit, and not everyone has the same shape feet. So the simplest answer is going to be the brand that fits a particular skater's feet best is the best choice . . . which isn't much of an answer. The best bet is to try on the major brand skates to figure out which one fits best. Bauer, CCM, Graf and RBK make the best skates on the market right now. Easton and Mission and Nike offer good skates as well. Outside of those brands, you're likely to find a lot of subpar quality skates. Make sure you're spending over $100 or you'll be buying recreational skates that look like hockey skates. The difference will be obvious the first time a slapshot hits your foot. (Broken feet suck). Within the brands there are often sub-models that fit differently as well. Bauer has the Vapor line and the Supreme line. The Supreme line fits a little wider and is more durable. CCM and RBK currently only offer one hockey line each which both fit the same, average width foot (RBK owns CCM). Graf has five or six different fitting skates The last part of Graf's model numbers indicate the shape of the boot. Easton's skates offer a moderate width fit, Mission skates are best for narrow feet and heels while Nike's have an average heel with a wide forefoot.
You can purchase CCM Ice Hockey Skates online at websites such as Pure Hockey, Ice Warehouse, and Hockey Monkey. You can also purchase a pair from personal sellers on the eBay auction website.
Some of the lightest hockey skates include the Bauer Vapors and the Bauer Nexus 7000s. These skates weigh just over 400 grams in most cases.
