EDEA is lighter than any other figure skating boot due to the new materials and technologies used in the Skates. EDEA Skates are 20% to 32%lighter than other manufacturers “light” boots and up to almost 50% lighter when comparing them to the standard high strength boots. Just think about the extra time in the air to complete or increase your spins. Also with less weight in the skate as a whole, the skater can accelerate faster with their free leg in jumps such as the axel, double axel, or triple axel.

The competition among competitive Skaters is becoming tougher with more and harder jumps and jump combinations being trained earlier and for a longer period of time through the skating career. This training to compete at a higher level, earlier has become much more intense. This level of training intensity can lead to additional stress in the head, neck, back, hips, knees, ankles, and heels due to the repeated impact of the landings.
Loosen the Laces ALL the way down to the Bottom EVERY Time you take your skates OFF.
Loosening the Laces will take the pressure off of the boot and avoid the chance of misshaping the boot. If the Laces are not loosened each time they are removed, the cumulative effect is the drawing of the boot together, making it tighter and tighter at the laces. This will narrow the ball and toe box areas of the boot, cause a pucker or bubble like bump at the base of the laces and will ultimately make it tighter each time the skates are laced up. Add to this condition the leaving of the Skates in a hot car, on a hot summer day, and you have reshaped your boots.
We have gotten many questions over the years asking “why are Edea screws special?”
Here is a bit of information to let you know why Edea screws are different and why you should only use Edea screws in Edea Boots.
All Edea Screws are rust resistant Double Helix Screws (where one thread cuts and one thread grips).
Edea screws are the proper length and will not poke through the footbed into the insole.
Edea has three types of screws. Each screw has a specific purpose.
