Alright, look. I’m sure you’re here, because like most of us, you’ve asked yourself this question.
Are expensive skates worth it?
As far as hockey equipment is concerned, the higher the price, the more high quality the materials used to build it.
Will expensive skates help me skate better?
Technically, yes. The most expensive skates are often the lightest. The lighter the skate, the quicker your feet move. In addition, expensive skates use material that improves overall foot stability, allowing for more power transfer from leg to foot to skate blade to ice.. and thus more speed.
Woah. Bet you didn’t think you’d get into the science of hockey skates today, did you?
