Sizing and Ordering Information

Standard Ice Walkers

The small walker accommodates very small children who hold the front crossbar at 21″ height, and then progress to using the side handles, which are 28″ inches high. It is most commonly used from 18 months through age 6-8 years, depending on the height of the child. The medium walker is for taller 6-8 year olds through a maximum height of 5’9″. The large walker is for those over 5’9″ in height when wearing their skates. The sides fold on all three sizes for convenient storage and transportation. Please submit the form to inquire about our Standard Ice Walkers.

These models are priced at $237 (Small), $247 (Medium) and $326 (Large). Discounts are available for orders over 10 units. Please note this price does not include shipping and handling. Please contact us for a shipping rate specific to your order quantity and location.

Standard, Pronated, and Orthotic Ice Skates

To order our skates and insure the proper size, please complete the following steps:

First photograph the feet of the individual bare-foot on a different colored background for contrast. Be sure to get a photo of the front, back and sides to show the arch or lack of arch of the foot. Include a picture up to the thighs showing the angle of the leg going down to the foot.

Pronated

Orthotic


Second draw a foot pattern of each foot by holding the pen or pencil upright to go around the outside of the foot. Measure the foot with a ruler and mark next to the drawing. Please take a picture of the drawing with a ruler next to it. This ensures the measurements are accurate as scanned/faxed items can become distorted in size.

Note If the person wears orthotics (AFOs, RGOs, or SMOs), then the pictures and drawings should be completed with the orthotics on.

All skates are $190 per pair. If you would like to place an order for ice skates or to request additional information, please complete the contact form on this page.


Once we receive your photographs and drawings, we will determine the best skate type and size and then contact you to discuss the sale and shipment.
