How to Measure for Skates

How to measure for Length

  1.  For just the length measurement, stand up straight with your heels against a flat wall.
  2. Have someone help you and place a dot or line on the floor right in front of your longest toe.
  3. Measure from the wall to this dot - Do this for BOTH FEET and write down the EXACT measurement to the 1/16th of an inch or to the MM (metric)
NOTE!  Please give us the exact measurements when calling for assistance
(If you build in growing room and then we add growing room, your skates will be too big)
