Boots for figures on ice

Any old boots should work. The trick is that they need to be soft enough to let your ankle bend from side to side. New, stiff freestyle boots don’t allow this.  Back in the day, people used to use their old, broken-down freestyle boots for figures. Now, there are four main options:
  • Use a pair of old boots that you’ve retired
  • Scour eBay and skate shops for a pair of old boots, used or new, that fit
  • Get one of the pairs the World Figure Sport Society has available
  • Have a pair custom-made for figures by your favorite boot manufacturer
  • Look into roller boots, which are just like boots made for ice skating but much softer
