What is the advantage of this Bladerunner Ice Ice Skate ?
Zephyr is a great all-round product that is lightweight, provides ample lateral support, forward flex and performance for skaters of all skill levels. The molded shell reinforces support and never softens up or breaks in to deliver consistent performance. The structure also lowers the center of gravity to help with balance, stability and control. Combine these things with the sleek, anatomical design of the shell and you have the makings of a high quality skate with performance, fit and value to satisfy the needs of any recreational ice skater all winter long.
The padded velvet lining with Thinsulate and a cushioned foot bed promise immediate comfort every time you step on the ice. The pull loop on the tongue helps make entry and exit easier so there is more time on the ice and not prepping. W models features a little bit of synthetic fur in the upper sections of the liner for an extra touch of comfort and warmth.
The buckle and lace closure system secure the feet inside the skates to enhance the fit and add support. When learning, newer skaters tend to forget how important the closure system is. Improper fit or support can compromise the performance and affect ones ability to skate. During the skate stride this system works with the molded shell to securely support the skater and lock in the ankles to improve skating performance.
Blades are one of the most important features of a good skate to help elevate the learning curve and experience. Having a good quality blade that is sharpened makes a huge difference in how much the skate can bite into the ice for pushing off and having more control while skating. The stainless steel blades will hold their edge longer for less sharpening. The W model features a figure blade with toe picks. Please note all new skates should be sharpened before use.
Bladerunner ice skates accommodate all skill levels to ensure the experience of gliding across the ice can be enjoyed by everyone. The ultimate winter companion combining fun and great memories with a low-impact anaerobic exercise, core strength development and balance and flexibility improvement. With out of the box comfort, style, performance and value at the cornerstone of our product philosophy, Bladerunner ice skates are the ideal choice.

Use the chart above to help find the correct skate size.
Most skates follow your shoe size.
Once you have the correct size of skates it is always best to check the following items below to ensure a proper fit
– The skate s closure system should be secured snugly ensuring the heel is locked in. It also helps to give the heel a little tap on the floor to push it into the rear of the boot.
– When standing with knees bent or skating, the heel should be secure and have no to minimal lift. In the skating position the heel tends to settle back into the skate and demonstrate the true fit. A skate that is too loose can compromise ankle support.
– Toes should not be pressed against the front of the skate or cramped.
– Better skaters tend to like when their toes lightly brush against the toe area because they know their heels will settle back giving them the proper room and allowing the skate to feel like a true extension of their foot. This is all personal preference.
– Skate socks make a big difference in the performance and fit of skates.
Zephyr is a great all round ice skate for the recreational skater. Unlike hockey or figure skates which usually require a break-in period to soften up and ultimately fit better after many uses, the Zephyr allows the skater to have immediate comfort out of the box and get on the ice right away. It provides ample lateral support, forward flex and performance for all skill levels. Zephyr appeals to those familiar with the fit of an inline skate or ski boot and not wanting a hockey or figure style skate. Padded velvet lining with Thinsulate and padded footbed keep the feet cushioned and warm. Great rec skate for all who simply like to ice skate.
Customer reviewsGood for new skaters
These skates get the job done, and once I got used to them, I was able to learn how to ice skate with these. Very comfortable too. Definitely recommend them to anyone who is trying to find a cheaper pair of skates and is only looking for recreational skates. If you re looking for skates to play hockey in, go somewhere else because these aren t anything too serious.
