EDEA and SkatesUS.com strongly recommend the use of Power Wedges to be installed between the curved Skating Boot and the flat Roller Frame to keep the foot in its natural position and to NOT Deform the Boot. A major advantage of the Power Wedge is that it provides VERY Secure CONTACT between the Boot and Skate Frame. This gives more power to each push and stroke, thus the name POWER WEDGE. It is not necessary to use the power wedges on a Roller Frame with a sloped front,
The Sizing of EDEA Skates is very consistent for each size and between models. Frame sizing for Roller Skates toEDEA Skates should be completed with much care. In Roller Skating different types of Skating require very different positions of the front axle in relation to the ball of the foot. When Mounting EDEA Skates, please follow the correct Roller Frame Mounting procedures for all EDEA Skates. SkatesUS.com is the number one expert at mounting the High performance ATLAS or Roll-Line Roller Frame of your choice. The Sizing and Mounting information is in the Learning Center on SkatesUS.com.
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 Skates ALL 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 mattress) 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 High Power Commercial Hair Dryers 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 CLASSICA is the premier Skate that is primarily used by all levels of Men and Ladies Skaters and at all ages, and many Coaches as it is our most comfortable Skate.
Complete EDEA Skate Outfits
SkatesUS.com is providing the opportunity to have a completed EDEA Skate Outfit including the top Roller Skate Frames appropriately used at this level. All of these Custom High Level EDEA Skate Outfits will take about one week, as not all of the Roller Skate Frames are always 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 Roller Skate Frames 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). Once the Roller Skate Frames are Mounted or the Boot is “Shaped”, the Skates are no longer considered New and CANNOT be Returned. All International orders are final, once paid for and shipped.
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.

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 Skaters 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.
