A pair of ice skates in a child’s size is only one factor to consider as you are looking for the right ice skates for kids. 2 issues will take your children off the ice quickly – cold feet and painful ankles. The best children’s ice skates have an extra layer of warmth, which will make the skates both comfortable and warm. Skates that have a clips are going to be easier to wear and tighten for a child then skates with traditional laces. However, lace up boots provide good stability for the ankles. A stainless steel blade is important, as is the consideration for whether or not you are looking at a hockey skate or a figure skate. If your child is going to take lessons, you will likely want to make sure your skates include a toe pick. Not all skates are good for beginners.
