We have plenty of used skates in both figure and hockey, they are $25 unless on consignment by one of our customers.
The Pros and Cons on used skates,
- Cons: Used skates are just that: USED. The comfort and support level has been worn down so the skate is not as comfortable in the footbed as a new one and the support around the ankle area is much less.
- Pros: The cost is less for a used pair.
If you are buying a pair of skates for the first time for your child our suggestion is to get a new pair. Why? Because if your child is skating in a used pair and is not comfortable on the ice then he/she won't enjoy it, if he/she has a new pair and has the support and comfort he will enjoy and want to continue. Then when he/she outgrows that pair you can look for a good used skate.
We also buy back used skates for $10
