Selecting Goalie Skates – Our Top Tips for Your Purchase

A pair of hockey goalie skates should both protect your feet and facilitate quick movements between the posts. Here, we provide our top tips for your purchase and suggestions for suitable models based on your level and age.

Here you will find all our goaltender skates.

As a hockey goaltender, you understand the importance of equipment that is both comfortable and allows for full mobility. Moreover, it should protect you from all potential risks associated with standing in the goal. Goaltender skates are no exception. Besides shielding your feet from hard shots or strikes, they should also enable swift movements in all directions on the ice. At Hockeystore, you can find goaltender skates from leading brands such as True, Bauer, and CCM.

Difference between goalie skates and other skates

Goalie skates are lower than outfield players' skates, providing better lateral mobility, allowing the goaltender to move quickly and smoothly between the posts. Additionally, they are heavily reinforced in the toe cap to protect against hard shots hitting the front of the skate. 

Goalie Skate Size Guide

In our selection, we have categorized the goalie skates into four different age groups: children, junior, intermediate, and senior. Choose a skate from the appropriate category and then refer to the size chart on the product page. To find the correct size, compare the length of your foot in centimeters with the chart. If you're purchasing goalie skates for a child, consider choosing a size that's at most one size larger than the child's regular size. This provides a skate that fits well but also allows some room for growth. 

Below, you can navigate through all the skates across various age categories (ranging from affordable skates for beginners to advanced models for elite-level hockey goalies). Further down, we recommend a cost-effective and popular goalie skate for each level.
