Kids often benefit from a soft approach. The same holds true with youth hockey skates. While senior and even junior players may need a rigid boot and stiff outsole, youth hockey skaters need a more flexible and forgiving boot that will break in easier. They need softer hockey skates that will help them learn their stride and develop ankle strength. Learning how to skate is hard enough without having to fight with an elite-level composite boot really designed for much more advanced players.
At Pure Hockey we carry skates by top makers, including Bauer and CCM, but you may want to leave brand loyalty on the bench when buying youth hockey skates. What's most important is fit and feel—no matter the maker. So shop our selection for the perfect pair—it's in there.
Skating should be fun. It should feel good. A comfortable pair of youth ice hockey skates is key to developing a positive first experience and a long-lasting love of the game. Rely on our handy fitting and buying guides to help you out—our Low-Price Guarantee means you can buy with confidence. That's as easy as ABC!
