When you step on the ice, nothing can stop you. And your ice hockey skates are your defining piece of equipment. Shop the hockey collection at DICK'S Sporting Goods for skates from some of the top brands in the sport, like Bauer®, Mission®, CCM® and elite HOCKEY®.
Consider your skate a part of your foot—it's vital that you select the right ice hockey skates for your style of play and experience level. Discover hockey skates that deliver a blend of protection, support and comfort. Select hockey skates for senior, junior and youth players alike.
Consider your skate construction when making your selection:
Boot: Most ice hockey skates are manufactured with a combination of leather and synthetic leather materials. More advanced models are constructed from a variety of technical composite materials. Hard plastic boots deliver better protection against pucks and blades, and provide more support for ankles
Blade: Your hockey skate blade is made of steel and has a concave shape. A key factor in your hockey blade is blade radius, or the amount of the skate that contacts the ice. Beginners need a radius of about five inches, increasing their ability to propel forward. Forwards and more experienced players prefer a shorter radius to promote maneuverability
Tips & Expert Advice
Ice hockey skates are intended to deliver a snug fit to promote stability on the ice and prevent abrasion. Choosing the right fit is essential for your skates—keep in mind you'll be wearing thick hockey socks during play. Do not buy larger sizes for youth players to grow into. Skates that are too large hinder their ability to learn to skate and could compromise ankle stability.
