animatorDon’t wanna hijack your thread here OP but if anyone has advice on first skates I would much appreciate it. Where to buy, what to buy, etc. Looking to get in to it this summer
Good low-price skates:
Roces M12 (for narrow feet only)
USD Aeon 60
The lower-priced versions of these skates come with a stock liner whereas the higher-priced/"pro" versions of these come with a higher quality liner.
They are sized in USA shoe sizing, so make sure to look at the cm chart, especially for USDs because they do not size on the centimeter and half-centimeter. Also, every skate shell is made for two shoe sizes, not one (i.e. 6-7 shell, 8-9 shell, etc.). I can even dm you a spreadsheet of interior shell length for each skate if you feel like you need it.
