Best Children's Skates of 2022: A Comparison of Three Pairs of Skates for Kids

When purchasing skates for children, it is important to choose a pair that fits well in size and is comfortable to wear. Here, we take a closer look at three different models from established brands such as Bauer and CCM.

When buying skates for your child, it's important to choose a pair that fits in size and is comfortable to wear. Besides fitting, stability and softness are also important factors, with a fit that evenly surrounds the foot. It's okay to leave a little room for growth, but we recommend not purchasing more than one size bigger than the child's normal size. Skates that are too big can be difficult to wear and can also cause pain because the foot moves around too much. Compare the child's size with the size chart on the product page to choose a pair that fits.
