Our family has taken up ice skating lately. This afternoon, we went with some friends from my son’s preschool for another spin around the ice, and got talked into buying a season pass to the outdoor rink. True to form, the rental skates sucked and hurt my feet.
It was just like when I took up skiing as a kid, and had the hardest time finding boots to fit and be comfortable.
So here I am, not 4 hours after purchasing our season skating pass, coveting my own pretty, white figure skates. They are pretty inexpensive these days. You can get a recreational pair for as little at $39.99. These particular skates are a little more expensive, but I figured my chances of actually finding a cheaper pair to be comfortable enough would be slim to none.
I think these would be sufficient for practicing my triple toe loops, don’t you?!
