Skates & Skate Accessories

Finding the right pair of ice hockey skates doesn't have to be that difficult, and here at Perani's Hockey World we strive to streamline the process as much as possible. We always carry the best hockey skates from all of the top hockey skate brands like Bauer, CCM, Graf and others. While shopping for ice hockey skates it's important to consider the following:

• First, will you need beginner, middle or top of the line hockey skates. Beginners and elite level hockey players utilize different models of skates because their personal needs vary based on their abilities and level of experience or competition. Simply put, higher priced skates are generally more durable, and are made for more advanced players, while lower price point skate models are more appropriate for beginners and recreational level play. Select a price range that works best for you.

• Next, you should pick one model from a few different skate brands and compare the specs and features. For example, pick out a Bauer Vapor, CCM Jetspeed, and Easton Stealth hockey skate -- the specs and features offered will all be different. You can compare things like the average customer rating, weight of the skate, outsole material, heel, midsole, and more. If you need help interpreting this information, feel free to call us.

• Last, but not least, check the sizing tab of the on the product page of the skates you're looking to order and find your size. Hockey skate sizes are based on the Canadian sizing system. Meaning, in most cases, your hockey skate size will be 1.5 sizes smaller than your U.S. Shoe Size. For example, if your U.S. Shoe Size is 9.5, Bauer, Easton, Reebok, CCM and GRAF recommend that you wear size 8.0 hockey skates.

After you've selected your skates, stop by our hockey accessories to find the tools and accessories that you'll use to maintain your purchase, with popular selections ranging from laces to sharpening stones to hockey bags, and more.
