The Risport Venus Figure Skating Boot is an ideal first boot for aspirational beginners. The stiffness rating of 20 is ideal for beginners as it is more comfortable to wear and allows for easy knee bend. The boot is made from good quality man made materials which are durable, waterproof and easy to maintain. For skaters attempting double jumps, a stronger boot would be more suitable such as the Risport RF3.
Figure skating boots are fitted differently to standard shoes as the foot does not bend inside the boot. Choosing the boot size in line with standard shoe fittings is unlikely to produce a good fit. Poorly fitting boots can cause permanent foot problems and a boot which is too big, is likely to break down more quickly. We would prefer that you come to the shop for a boot fitting, (outside shop hours appointments are available) - however if this is not possible, please call so that we can correctly advise you on the most suitable size, brand and model.
