The Concerto boot has been designed for high-end performance ice skating. Edea have used all their experience and know-how to produce a boot that combines modern technology with the traditional look. The extra strength in this boot means it is often the choice for male skaters or pairs who require the extra support needed for high jumps.

Our boots are designed with lightness in mind making them more responsive. The lightness helps skaters with their touch and feel on the ice giving them the confidence to perform.
Our designers have used traditional leather but with innovative thinking to give skaters extra support and strength in their boot.
Edea have increased the slant of the foot bed. This shortens the reaction time as the foot is already in position allowing the skater to be more fluid in their movements as they prepare for jumps.
Control and Stability
The unique insole made with fiberglass and nylon allows more power transmission and increases the stability.
It also allows for the thickness of the sole to be reduced thus lowering the center of gravity and giving the skater even greater control, stability, and feel of the ice.
The unique heel design adds further stability to the boot. The curve on the heel increases weight distribution, allowing the heel to be in contact with over half the insole giving the skater a sense of oneness with the ice.
The anatomical shape, lightness and greater flexibility of EDEA boots means more time can be spent performing and less time breaking in the boots. The memory foam adds to the comfort and also helps to reduce the breaking in period.
Double stitching provides the boots with extra strength across the lacing area ensuring greater accuracy and feel in lacing.
Concerto has EDEA’s patented hooks and hook position meaning the laces can hold the boots without the need to strangle the leg. A lace puller will make getting on the ice quicker and help keep the boots pristine by making unlacing easier so the tongue can sit properly when the boots are not in use.
EDEA’s unique dual density sole technology means ice chatter is virtually removed and vibrations are reduced allowing the skater to concentrate on what they are doing rather than what the ice feels like.
With the lower profile of the design because of the thin sole we’ve added an extra couple of millimeters of room for the toes for added comfort. Because of the thinner sole our boots have a lower profile. This means we’ve been able to add an extra couple of millimeters of room for the toes for added comfort while retaining our lower profile.
The Concerto is padded with our top of the range microfiber fabric offering comfort and support. There is additional padding at the ankle for comfort and to hold the heel in place more firmly giving a better foot position.
Extra padding on the back cuff helps protect the Achilles tendon while increasing the range of movement. This allows the skater to point the their toes adding elegance to the performance.
The microfiber lining and inside padding are perforated for added ventilation, allowing the outer shell and inner lining to dry quickly when not in use.
All EDEA skates are designed around the foot with curves and strength to hold the heel in place, to support the foot and give the best fit and maximum comfort. The Concerto is our stiffest boot. This means the skates are more responsive to power giving the skater both increased acceleration and control.
The tongue is key in any boot. In the Concerto the tongue is the strongest in our range, giving the increased support required by skaters at this top level. Its anatomical shape helps the leg bend in jumps while additional padding increases the comfort. Additional tongue tabs also help to control the tongue position giving the boot a better fit.
Instant Custom Fit
Anatomically designed with memory foam lining our boots are significantly more comfortable than old fashioned ones. The thermal shell is heat adjustable so every boot can have the bespoke fit that skaters at this level need.
Our hi-tech soles are made with ultra modern material making them both light and waterproof. Just what skaters need.
The Concerto is made from the finest leather. A special water repellent treatment makes EDEA skates easier to keep in competition trim.
In a sport where style and grace can be the difference between winning and losing EDEA have added extra style to the Concerto with five Swarovski crystals added for the final touch of elegance.
Latest Technology for Blade Mounting
All our models use a special double helix screw fixed through predrilled holes to fix the blades. They are designed to hold the blades more firmly and for longer than old methods making skating safer and more fun.
Designed and Made in Italy
Everything at Edea is done at our factory in a little village at the foot of the Alps. This means we can control design, quality and production. You buy our boots knowing they’ve been cared for from the drawing board until they are placed in the box to be sent to the shops.
The EDEA Skates CONCERTO represents a great advancement in Skate Technology and in turn, in skating itself. The EDEA CONCERTO is the Ultimate Skating Boot for ICE FreeStyle, Roller Long Figures, and Inline FreeStyle Roller Skating. Ultra Light Super Tough Construction with Beautiful Leather finish outside and perforated MicroFibre Lining. The CONCERTO is made with Revolutionary NEW Ultra Lightweight Materials, which means the CONCERTO is about 25% to 45% lighter than comparable traditional leather Skating Boots. The CONCERTO is designed for High Performance Ice Skating, Roller Long Figures, and Inline FreeStyle Roller Skating and is incredibly comfortable, and yet carries that feel of a traditional Skate. With EDEA Skates it is almost impossible to “over-boot” the Skater, so don’t be afraid to make the change to the lightest NEW Skates in the World. These are Beautiful and Comfortable Italian Skates which are available from SkatesUS.com or through your local Dealer or Pro Shop.
The MicroPerforated MicroFibre Lining is long lasting and ventilates the perspiration quickly. The Anatomically Shaped Memory Foam Padding and Formed fit of the boot is shaped by the Thermoformable Structure and provides the best in foot contact and control while giving the movement range to allow Great Performances. Other features are the comfortable Back Cuff Padding for great pointing of the toes, the Rounded Heel base Shape which more evenly distributes the weight and adds torsional stability, the Full Wrapped Padding, the Shaped Extra Padded Tongue, the Tongue Tab which controls the position of the tongue, and the Sewn in strong forged long Hooks.
The unique EDEA Footbed is torsionally rigid but with just a bit of vertical compression, that creates a lower center of gravity in the Skate, creating a lower displacement which greatly increases stability and control. The Footbed and bottom cover will not absorb moisture and WILL Securely hold the special EDEA screws, mounting the Ice Blades. For a very detailed Technology White Paper on the differences between EDEA Skates and traditional Leather Skates, please take a little time and read “Why EDEA Skates are so Special“ from the Learning Center of SkatesUS.com.
In most cases the Break-In period is just a few hours, not days, weeks, or Months, but the most important Features are how LIGHT and COMFORTABLE the EDEA CONCERTO is!
Blade Sizing is very consistent for each size and between models, please use the Sizing Chart. When Mounting EDEA Skates, please follow the correct Blade Mounting procedures for all EDEA Skates. The Sizing and Mounting information is in the Learning Center on SkatesUS.com. When properly mounted utilizing the EDEA screws, no additional water proofing of the Skates should be necessary.
EDEA Skates fit a great majority of Skaters (because of the newly designed shoe lasts), right out of the box, but some have need of special accommodations to give that perfect fit. EDEA SkatesALL have a Thermoformable Structure which allows manipulation of the boot to give the perfect Custom fit without the Custom price . EDEA Skates use a special Memory Foam (like on your matress) and DO NOT use gel packs or standard foam that are heated in an oven, then the foot inserted to shape the inside padding of the boot only, this method allows change and movement of the old style padding over time, which is not a good thing. EDEA Skates DO use very high tech materials (similar to a carbon fiber or Kevlar material) which can be shaped using Heat Guns and Special Shoe Lasts, in very specific locations or general widening or narrowing of the Skating Boot. This “Shaping” is actually changing the Structural Shape of the Skate. Once the boot is “Shaped”, it will stay in that shape, until the “Shaping” process is changed again. SkatesUS.com provides this very special Custom Fitting service. The EDEA CONCERTO IS the same structural Strength as the ICE FLY, but feels a little stiffer due to the thicker leather outers.
The EDEA CONCERTO is the premier Skate that is primarily used by all levels of Men’s and Ladies Singles Skaters and the Ladies of the Pairs Teams. With the thicker leather on the Tongue, the CONCERTO offers just a little more resistance or support for landing those BIG throw Jumps.
Complete EDEA Skate Outfits
SkatesUS.com is providing the opportunity to have a completed EDEA Skate Outfit including the top Ice Blades appropriately used at this level. All of these Custom High Level EDEA Skate Outfits will take about one week, as not all of the Blades are kept in stock. It is highly recommended to use this time make sure that the fit of the EDEA Skate is proper prior to any Mounting of the Blade or “Shaping” of the Boot.
When the EDEA Skate Outfit is paid for, SkatesUS.com will ship the EDEA Skates to verify the correct size and then we will cover the cost of the return shipping after trying on the EDEA Skates prior to mounting the Blades and complete the very high level, high performance EDEA Skate Outfit. For more details on this service see the SkatesUS.com Boot Sizing Policy (which is only valid in the United States). The EDEA Skate Complete Outfit is only returnable if the items are in new, unused condition, meaning they have not been shaped or mounted prior to return. We highly recommend confirming correct size before ordering the items to be mounted. All International orders are final, once paid for and shipped.
Custom Shaping Services
SkatesUS.com will help with any Custom Shaping Services, as needed. There may be labor charges for the Custom Shaping Services. Some of our Dealers are also trained in the Shaping process and can do an excellent job locally.
Remember with EDEA Skates, the Carbon Fibre type material is not like leather and will not just change shape on its own. If something pressures, it will always pressure, until it is adjusted and then once the Skate is adjusted, it will not pressure and will stay that way unless it is changed again. When we are “Shaping” the Skate, we are “Shaping” the shell or structure of the Skate. Once it hardens into the new shape, it will stay that way until changed again.
The best way for us to work on the Skates, is of course to have the Skater’s feet to put into the Skates and find out where the pressure points are.
If that is not possible, please trace the foot on a piece of paper and mail (yes, snail mail) or put good measurements on the drawings in mm or inches. When a drawing is scanned or faxed, it is scaled and makes a good reference, but is not accurate for measurements. The second part of this is to take some digital pictures of the feet and E-Mail them to OrderDesk@SkatesUS.com and to Info@SkatesUS.com. Pictures will help us to visualize the issues, but the drawings with measurements are essential.
Temporary Mounting Services
SkatesUS.com is also providing (if selected) the custom Mounting Services to complete your very high level, high performance EDEA Skate Outfit. We will complete a Temporary Mount by properly installing the Screws in the Blade Slots, based on the normal Center of Balance.
Once you have received your Skates and work with your Coach to ensure proper positiong of the Blade for your body and build. Adjustments can be made by slightly loosening the screws and sliding the Blade on the slots, as needed. Once the Blade positioning is completed and tightened, it is time to install ALL of the remaining Flat Head (CounterSunk) Special EDEA Screws. These screws are installed by using the INCLUDED 2.0mm (5/64″) Drill Bit Extender. By using the Drill Bit Extender, the additional screws can be installed without removing the Blade or danger of hitting the drill chuck on the Blade.
The EDEA Skates Nylon Fibreglass Composite FootBed will hold the Special EDEA flat tipped, high-low thread Screws with several times the foot-pound torque than that of a standard sheet metal screw into a leather and cork sole of a traditional leather boot. The EDEA Skate does not require any additional water-proofing and the rubber coated FootBed of the EDEA Skates will not get water logged and allow the screws to loosen and fall out. EDEA Skates are much safer due to these innovations.
The easy steps to complete the mount are:
1. Remove the InnerSole.
2. With the INCLUDED 2.0mm (5/64′) Drill Bit Extender, drill the center pilot hole in the Center of each of the Countersink screw locations.
3. In the Sole of the Skate Drill ALL the way through the Sole.
4. in the Heel of the Skate Drill to the Void in the Heel.
5. Install the appropriate Special EDEA flat head Screws into the holes with a #2 Phillips Screw Driver.
6. With a straight blade Screw Driver or chisel, on the inside FootBed of the Skate, remove the drill trails (shavings).
7. Re-Install the InnerSole.
8. Put the Skates back on.
9. Enjoy Skating in EDEA Skates!!!
