The Pro Shop / Re: Anyone tried moldable foam insoles or liners?
« Last post by Leif on Today at 01:32:19 AM »
I had Superfeet, but claimed my money back as they did not work out. They lifted my heels up, which ruined the fit of the skate. It also felt as if the arch support was in the wrong place for my feet.  :( In the case of my skates, I do need thin insoles as they generally fit well. That is an interesting idea about using insoles as space fillers, perhaps like a sock. I assume your carpet pad is what we (UK) call underlay, which goes under the carpet. I have some pads that go in the toe of the skate, at the top, to fill the void. They do help. They are self adhesive, though the skate in that area is hard plastic, so receptive to glues. I can imagine a sock like pad would help. From what I have seen, figure skates are closer fitting in the toes, presumably because they are not designed to withstand impacts from pucks and other skates. Are some heat moldable?

Because I've found that the sizing charts don't always reflect the actual fit  ;)

Too true. Officially I don't fit in any of them based on their size charts.
I've a pair of Mondor Size L which fit me just as well as my Chloe Noel Size L.
I've also got Thuno Size L. THere's a lot less stretch in these, but they're very warm.

At a show last week I saw an impressive fire breathing routine.  Fortunately the costume did not light up.

medals and old blades in the prison entry,

I was so confused by this until I read your other thread. 

I guess this one will not be going on the ice rink tourism bucket list.

Events for Skaters / Re: Adult Nationals 2017
« Last post by CaraSkates on April 24, 2017, 07:51:47 PM »
I was there for many hours Wed/Thurs/Fri/Sat as a competitor (Gold Ladies 1 FS, Light and Dramatic!) and spectator. Gold Light 1 was the last event on Forest rink on Saturday so it was a long day, as I wanted to watch Champ Gold first thing in the morning. It was fun to see all my friends and make new ones. There were some issues with registration - I arrived Tuesday night and had to make 3+ trips to registration Tues/Wed to get my credential, program/pin (pre-purchased) and goodie bag. Luckily I had a friend volunteering that helped me out.

Whoever did the sweeper hairbows and the "tossie targets" shirts is genius, I LOVED them! The tossie game was strong, I've never ended up with as many tossies as this! BINGO was very popular, by Friday even the officials were playing! The whole thing seemed very well attended and the Wake bleachers were packed all day Saturday for Champ events.

After the Great Easterns Power Outage of 2017 and no heat all weekend, I figured anything would feel warm (I skate in a cold rink normally) but I was roasting skating all week! I was in leggings and a t-shirt on all my practice ice sessions! No complaints about that, the weather was GREAT! Locker rooms were decent, I liked the one with the graffiti advice on the bathroom door "Don't B Stupid".

A gentleman at Nationals skated to "Rhinestone Cowboy" with a flashing hat. It was effective because the hat was black, the lights white.

Can anyone help with the sizing of skating pants from the different manufacturers please. If I fit an Adult L in Chloe Noel, would I fit the same size with the other manufacturers please?

If Chloe NOEL L fit you, why not just look up the size measurements and compare it w the size measurements of the other brands?
