Everyone has an individual foot shape. Some are wide, some are narrow. Some are big and some are small. Depending on your foot shape you may need some extra help fitting into those skates.

The SDIA Pro Shop can help with our boot stretcher. By using the boot stretcher your skates can be made wider in by your toes. If you’re having pain around the ball of your foot, or having problems fitting your toes into your skates come by the Pro Shop and ask if we can help.

Boot stretching normally requires that the skates be left on the boot stretcher overnight or for at least eight hours. Some hockey skates are made of materials that may not be able to be stretched. Check with Shop staff for details and an assessment of your situation.
