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.
