Other FAQ

Yes, they all come in pairs.

The first difference is that we make each model for three different sports. Long track ice, short track ice and inline. Each of them has a different boot height, constructed with varying mounts of different materials, with different mounting blocks and stiffness. We wouldn’t advise you try to use a long track boot for inline because it is too soft. The boot is made with a lot more thermo plastic so long track skaters can steer the boot. The construction is totally different to an inline boot.

The Vaypor is constructed to minimize weight and maximize strength. We use a special thermo set resin and the entire boot is made with carbon. We also use uni-directional carbon which saves even more weight.

The BNT is a carbon boot but it does not use uni directional carbon. The stiffness is similar to that of the Vaypor but at also does without some of the bells and whistles on a vaypor such as a TPU bumper, zippers, and longer lace covers. 

The Jet uses a mix of fiberglass and carbon for the base. It is still super moldable thanks to our Super mold Technology and it is a lot  lighter than some competitors top of the range boots, but it is heavier than our Vaypor and BNT. If you are just getting into the sport, you won’t notice the difference. The resin is also slightly heavier than the Vaypor.

When buying skates for a child, finding a balance between long-term use and safety is important. Oversized skates can lead to ankle injuries and blisters, hindering your child's enjoyment. That's why we offer our unique 'Room for Growth' option. We'll select the right size boot for your child's current foot size and carefully add a few millimeters of length for future growth. This ensures a secure ankle fit now, with the space to grow into later.

We have a number of solutions. Please see which one best fits your needs:

1. We can build the orthotic into the boot for you and it will be in there permanently. You will need to send the orthotic to us.

2. We build the boot with the orthotic inside but you can remove it. You will not be able to use the boot without the orthotic inside. You will need to send the orthotic to us.

3. You stand on your orthotic while making a pair of molding socks for a custom pair of boots. The orthotic will then be built into the boot and you no longer need to use your orthotics for skating.

For options 1. and 2., the price is +$30 on top of any boot you
choose. There is no additional cost for building the orthotic into a pair of custom boots.

When Mr. Inze Bont first developed his last in 1975 he was a size 8. Over the years as sneaker manufacturers moved to
Asia, last sizes have shrunk. Mr. Bont is now a size 10... So the simple answer is that our last sizes haven't changed for over 48 years where as your running shoe manufacturers lasts have changed.

Narrow, wide, and double wide boots are considered semi custom boots
because they have to be made and are not our standard width fit. They
take 6-8 weeks to arrive. 

Using the BONT SOX you can easily mold your orthotics into the boot. Simply place the orthotic on the floor and place some plastic over it. Then mold your feet using the Bont Sox and the orthotic will be inbuilt in your foot mold. If you are not using orthotics we prefer to mold your feet with a plaster mold.

Heat mold them. See these heat molding instructions. Another option is to use Ezeefit booties.

Blisters are a skater's worst enemy! There are two main culprits:

  • Ill-fitting boots: Make sure your boots fit snugly without being too tight. Oversized boots are a recipe for blisters. Get your boots heat-molded for a custom fit.
  • Improper technique: Pushing off with your toes instead of your heels can cause your ankles to shift, leading to friction and blisters.

The Fix:

  1. Let your feet heal: Trying solutions while still blistered won't give you an accurate picture. Let your feet heal first.
  2. Focus on form: When skating, consciously lift your toes and push off to the side with your heels. This will take practice! Having someone videotape you can help identify areas to correct.
  3. Make it a habit: Once heel-pushing feels natural, you won't need to focus on lifting your toes as much.

Still Struggling?

If you continue to experience heel blisters even after correcting your form, our Rip Jaws Boot Stretcher can help! It provides targeted stretching for a customized, pain-free fit.

To keep your boots in top shape, always dry them in the shade after use. Sweat can damage the liner, so don't leave them damp. Also, be careful not to overtighten the bolts, or you could strip the nuts. Importantly, never leave your skates in a hot place like the back of a car. Our boots use thermoplastics that can deform with heat, affecting their custom fit.
