These ice skates are one of the few things on my wishlist that I want but don't need. I like ice skating. I haven't gone in 4 years though. My ice skates got mildew in them and had to go, and I could rent, but that's no fun once you've had your own. It's been a long time since I've gotten anything just because I want it and don't need it. I actually put it on my wishlist hoping for some kind of contest like this. I don't need it because it's definitely not a daily use, necessary item, but I'll get to enjoy one more activity that I love, so I really really want them! And I think it's a pretty random fact that I love ice skating so much, and learned fairly young, because my dad was a semi - pro speed skater when he was younger. No one would EVER guess that now.

For the love of God, I hope your lower back and knees are well conditioned for the hell they're about to go through! Seriously though, it's rough. I went with these for my two year old because they were cheap. I had no issues with them really, they're nothing special but I needed to make sure he would be comfortable on the ice before I bought him more expensive skates. They worked well though for what they were.

Once you get him/her standing on the ice pretty comfortably, look into getting an "ice walker", one of those elderly people looking style walkers that slide on the ice, that way they can hold themselves up without you bending over constantly.

I started off in these that I bought online. I used the size chart and sized myself. I will say that they always did feel a little loose, but they took me through Adult 1-4 and a Christmas Show (spins, lunges, spirals). The pros of this skate were that they lasted me about 8 months with me skating 2-6 hours a week in them before they started to break at the ankles. They are great for a beginner with a small toe-pick, the stiffness is just right, and they are super comfortable. The cons were that the blades are PERMANENTLY mounted, so you can't have them moved if you have foot issues. Also, I had a big learning curve when I switched to "professional" skates vs. the recreational skates because of the bigger toepick (lots of tripping).

It really just comes down to how much are you going to skate, if you have the time & resources to go to a fitter, and how much you want to spend.

If all you're doing is skating for fun, then any skate from $60-$100 is going to be fine for you. Beginners tell me Jackson's low-level skates ($60-$100) are comfortable for them. https://www.amazon.com/Jackson-SoftSkate-Figure-Skates-Fleece/dp/B06XPX7YPJ/

P.S. These kinds of skates would also be just fine for Learn-to-Skate lessons. You'd only need to get something stronger ($200-$300 skates) once you start working on jumps and spins.

Lots of itty bitty kids at the rinks near me seem to have good luck with these skates

Double check with your skating program to make sure they allow 2 year olds. I believe the Learn to Skate USA program has a minimum age of 4.

On a similar note, has anyone every picked up a pair of K2 softboot skates or bladerunner zephyr ? I've been low balling people on ebay for a month now trying to snag a cheap pair with no luck. Would love some feedback from someone on here before I spend any real money.

I was in the army but got injured and discharged. My ex husband was in the army for 10 years while we were married. My grandma and grandpa were both marines my other grandpa was in the airforce, I have a great uncle who died on d day and was buried in Normandy.

Oddly enough this picture was taken hours before my car accident and the second one was whenever I got out of the hospital.

I ended up buying these about a month ago. They're serving me pretty well so far, no complaints.
