HOW TO MEASURE YOUR FEET
Use centimetres (CM) as a reference to find your proper skate size.
Stand barefoot on a piece of paper and trace your foot with a pen
*Make sure to trace the foot with the pen pointing straight down to get the most accurate measurement.
Measure both feet and use the longer heel to toe measurement.
THINGS TO REMEMBER
Skates should fit tighter than your shoes.
Your feet need to bend while you walk, so you need some room for your foot to move around. In skates your feet don't need to bend, so it's best to have tighter fit with your toes touching the end of the liner, so the skate feels like a part of your body.
Skates are always the tightest when they're brand new.
Inline skate liners have thicker padding than your shoes so they will always feel a bit tighter when they are new. The Wizard skates come with heat mouldable Intuition liners which are designed to mold to the shape of your foot and expand/stretch by up to one full size over time (10-20 hours of skating).
HOW SKATES SHOULD FIT
For experienced or advanced skaters.
Your toes should be touching the end of the liner, even with some pressure, as long as your toes are flat (not curling).
For maximum performance and control, you want to minimize all movement of your foot inside the boot.
We recommend that you choose the size closest to your actual centimetre (cm) measurement or 0.5-1cm shorter.
For most people, this will result in a skate size that is one full size smaller than your shoe size.
For beginner skaters or skaters with unique foot shape.
Your toes should be very close or lightly touching the end of the liner.
For comfort, it's ok if you can wiggle your toes, as long as the rest of your foot doesn't move inside the skate.
We recommend that you choose the size closest to your actual centimetre (cm) measurement or up to 0.5cm longer.
For most people, this will result in a skate size that is a half size smaller than your shoe size.
THINGS TO CONSIDER
Everyone's feet are different
If you have pronounced features on your feet or your feet are extra wide, you may want to choose a comfort fit or if possible upgrade your liner to a heat mouldable liner, like the Intuition Skate Liner.
Insoles and orthotics
Orthotics could make the skate fit tighter, depending on how thick they are. Keep that in mind when choosing your size.
Aftermarket insoles, like Superfeet, can help improve the fit.
They stabilize your heel, support your arch, and align your foot properly in the skate.
Along with properly fitted skates, we recommend thinner calf height socks to optimize the fit.
