Since 2000, EDEA has been the essence of quality, care and service provided by the artisans and craftsmen of Italia. EDEA is now recognized in the world market as a leader, with many of the best Ice Skates. Skaters are praising EDEA Skates for their Comfort, Lightness, Durability, and to top it off, that Beautiful Italian Design and Style. EDEA Skates are probably about 5 to 6 years or more ahead of most other Skating Boot Manufacturers in applying NEW Technologies. Most sports have moved forward and are no longer making products with the same methods or materials that they did even a few years ago. EDEA Skates ARE NOT like traditional Leather Skating Boots, but a Whole NEW Concept in Skating Boots. Don't be afraid to think a little differently about your Skates. As I mentioned earlier, EDEA strives to make the best ice skates, skates that are More Comfortable, Easy to Break-In, Long Lasting, Very Supportive to the Foot and Skater with Foot Lasts that fit a wide range of different feet, and then the best, the ability to "Custom Shape" and actually change the fit of the boot by manipulating the Carbon Fiber type material, creating a Custom Skate that is based on a Stock Boot.
