While figure skating doesn’t take as much equipment as hockey, it does require a lot of precision. This means you need figure skating equipment that will hold up to your precise movements and work best for your needs as a skater. Whether you’re shopping for a first time skater or a seasoned competitive skater, at Pete’s Skate Shop, we can help you find the perfect boots, blades, and clothing to meet your needs and your level of skating.

Choosing the right boots is one of the most important steps in being a successful figure skater. Not only do you want them to look great, you need them to perform great, too.
You need boots that will support your ankles as you spin, jump, and twirl on the ice. You also need them to be comfortable as you lean into sharp turns, causing friction on parts of your feet and ankles that you don’t get from walking. We carry the top brands in all of our figure skating equipment to make sure you can find the perfect boot for you. We carry brands such as:
- Jackson Ultima
- American Athletic
- And more!
Just as critical as choosing the right boots is choosing the right blades. You want blades that are going to keep their sharp edges longer, and that will allow for quick take offs, sharp cuts, and smooth turns. Without a great pair of blades, you’re just wearing boots on ice. At Pete’s Skate Shop, we offer top of the line carbon steel or stainless steel blades.
Figure skating clothing isn’t just elaborate costumes. You need something that is lightweight and flexible to practice in. We carry all the top brands at Pete’s Skate Shop, such as:
- Chloe Noel
- Ice Time Apparel
- And more!
