Breaking in new skates can be uncomfortable, but should not be painful. The leather used in skates is stiff and needs to soften to your specific foot shape. Proper fit is essential to performance and longevity of the skate and figure skating.

If your skates are heat moldable and you require additional assistance in obtaining the proper fit, your Gam Skate Technician can assist. Your skates will be heated at a carefully controlled temperature and molded to your feet without breaking the skate down.

  Loosen your laces and place your foot into the boot.  The bottom half of the holes in your boot should be tightened to take up the slack.  Pull the laces snugly for the remaining holes and across the instep, ensuring that the boot wraps around your foot and across the tongue sufficiently. Hold the tightness in place by knotting the lace before moving to the hooks. Read More ...
