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 person 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.
