Alessandra Posted January 13, 2011 Share Posted January 13, 2011 Dc age 10 have done a few sessions of skate camp, and now I want to buy them some ice skates. They would be using them maybe a couple of times a month in winter -- there are three rinks nearby and a nature center with regular skating parties, if the water is frozen. No one would be be doing fancy figure skating or playing ice hockey. So what should I look for? Ds is an adult size 8 and dd is an adult size 7. Should I think about dd using ds's old skates next year? Or, are skates so inexpensive that I don't need to worry about this? I see skates on Amazon for $30-40, but on local store websites more like $70-80; at the skating rink shop, skates are hundreds of dollars. Not sure what I should be looking for. And, can anyone tell me the difference between figure skates and ice skates? I am not even sure what kind of skates we rented. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
