Here is the Riedell collection of ice skates featuring "soft boot"
Riedell Soft Boot ice skates are built more like an inline skate
than traditional leather or vinyl ice skates.
Soft boot ice skates feature a padded liner
that is warmer and far more comfortable than traditional skates.
This makes them wonderful recreational skates, especially for outdoor or "pond"
skating. Soft boot figure skates have blades with toe picks, which generally are a recreational size pick, not the "jumping pick"
found on more advanced figure skates.
Don't let the comfort of the soft boot skates surprise you. They actually offer quite a bit of support. In fact, the ankle support
of the soft boot models is far better
than that offered by the lower priced vinyl figure skates.
We have been offering soft-boot skates since they were introduced and the category continues to grow each year. For the past several years, Riedell has been offering a rental version of the soft boot skates and the popularity of the rentals has really propelled skaters to buy their own soft boot skates when the time came. One rental shop manager told me that their old "brownies" (leather traditional rentals)
were going to "last forever"
because nobody wanted to rent them anymore!
If you or your child are taking lessons, soft boot skates will be perfectly appropriate for all of the basic skills levels. If you aspire to jump and spin, you will need to move up to a "real"
leather figure skate when the time comes.FREE GROUND Shipping (Continental U.S. Only) on Riedell Soft Boot ice skates.
