We highly recommend looking at eBay before buying brand new equipment. You can save potentially 50-75% on skates that are brand new or lightly used. As a rule of thumb, you should buy a skate that is one size lower than your shoe size. For example, if you wear a size 7 shoe, you should buy a size 6 hockey skate.
