HOW TO MEASURE YOUR FEET
Use centimeters (CM) as a reference to find your proper skate size.
If measuring in inches, 1 inch = 2.54 cm.
Stand barefoot on a piece of paper and trace your foot. Measure both feet and use the longer heel to toe measurement.
THINGS TO REMEMBER
Skates should fit tighter than your shoes. Your feet need to bend while you walk, so you need some room for your foot to move around. In skates your feet don't need to bend, so it's best to have tighter fit so the skate feels like a part of your body.
Skates are always the tightest when they're brand new. Inline skate liners have thicker padding than your shoes and will expand/stretch by up to one full size as the foam compresses over time (10-20 hours of skating).
HOW SKATES SHOULD FIT
Performance Fit - For experienced or advanced skaters. Your toes should be touching the end of the liner, even with some pressure, as long as your toes are flat (not curling). For maximum performance and control, you want to minimize all movement of your foot inside the boot.
We recommend that you choose the size closest to your actual centimeter (cm) measurement or 0.5-1cm shorter. For most people, this will result in a skate size that is one full size smaller than your shoe size.
Comfort Fit - For beginner skaters. Your toes should be very close or lightly touching the end of the liner. For comfort, it's ok if you can wiggle your toes, as long as the rest of your foot doesn't move inside the skate.
We recommend that you choose the size closest to your actual centimeter (cm) measurement or up to 0.5cm longer. For most people, this will result in a skate size that is a half size smaller than your shoe size.
THINGS TO CONSIDER
Everyone's feet are different. If you have pronounced features on your feet or your feet are extra wide, you may want to choose a comfort fit or if possible upgrade your liner to a heat mouldable liner, like the Intuition Skate Liners.
Insoles and orthotics Orthotics could make the skate fit tighter, depending on how thick they are. Keep that in mind when choosing your size. Aftermarket insoles, like Superfeet, can help improve the fit. They stabilize your heel, support your arch, and align your foot properly in the skate.
Socks, we recommend thinner calf height socks. Our favourite socks are made by Lorpen.
