The boot for Skating is a technical tool, hence the fitting must be very accurate.

The correct size boot assures the comfort and enhances the Skating Performance.

An incorrect boot causes severe problems to your feet and can hamper your Skating efforts.

EDEA Boot Sizes are in millimeters, in steps of 5 millimeters per size, for maximum accuracy. (5 millimeters is slightly less than 1/4″, 10 millimeters or 1 centimeter is slightly less than 1/2″).

Your best option for finding your correct size is to be assisted by a local Authorized Skates US Dealer.

Points to help with sizing Skating Boots when trying them on

As a base indication, step into the boot (without lacing them up) and push your foot all the way to the toe,
until you touch the tip of the toe of the boot. This will allow for checking how much room is left in the heel
area of the boot.

– For a growing foot, it is recommended to leave between 5 to 10 millimeters of space.

– For a stable foot, it is recommended to leave no more than a maximum of 5 millimeters space

A. Usually, as a rule of thumb, one (1) finger thickness behind the heel will be about one (1) full size or 10 millimeters. If you can only get your finger thickness behind the heel about halfway down, this is about 1/2
size or 5 millimeters. (This is based on a fairly normal adult hand and can vary based on the hand size.)

B. Another way to gauge (or double check) the sizing, is to remove the Inner Sole from the Skating Boot
and place it under the foot. (Remember the foot will spread and elongate when weight is placed upon it.)

C. Usually it is recommended that one (1) full size or 10 millimeters be allowed for about one (1) year’s
growth, for a growing youth. Sometimes growth spurts will out-grow this norm.

– In a majority of people, if you are Right-Handed, then your Right Foot is slightly larger, if you are Left Handed, then your Left Foot may be slightly larger.

A Skating Boot that is too large will pull the ball of the foot into the arch area of the boot. This will cause continual pain to the feet and can lead to premature deformation which may cause damage to your foot support and will affect your Skating ability and performance.

Never buy length to get width. Purchasing any skate too large will put the skater’s foot in the wrong position for proper use of the blade rocker for edges and spinning and the toe pick for jumping. This can dramatically slow a skater’s progress.

1. Another tell-tail way to tell if the Skating Boot is too large is to have the Skater (with the boots fully laced up) jump straight up and down on both feet. What we are looking for is to evaluate whether the heel is staying locked into the Heel Pocket of the Skating Boot, or if it is raising up from the bottom of the Skating Boot.

2. Additionally, if the Skating Boot is too large, there will be loss of control and stability of the skate, as the Frame or Blade will (most normally) be sized for the Skating Boot (not necessarily the smaller foot inside). An oversized large Skating Boot, with the longest Frame or Blade that will fit on it, does a great dis-service to the Skater, as it may put the front Axle or Rocker of the Blade under the toes (possibly even under the tips of the toes), instead of the ball of the foot.

Edea boots are designed to fit in the heel. One the heel size is determined; the ball and toe box area can be shaped for comfort. Please note: The material will not stretch, it is moved. So additional length may be required to accommodate shaping.

All EDEA boots are dual last. The size displayed on the label, represents the ball of the foot size. But, fitting the heel properly into the heel pocket is the most important part of a proper fit. Properly fitted and laced, the heel should not move up and down or side to side. With proper sizing the ball of the foot, the toe box, and other areas of the boot can be shaped to be whatever is needed.

– A “C” width heel is larger and thicker. Check the very base of the heel.

BALL OF THE FOOT WIDTH: E  HEEL WIDTH: D
