Where is the skate sizing guide?

The skate sizing guide is linked off the skate pages.

I just recently bought a one piece composite stick and unfortunately the length is too long. How do you cut these sticks to size?

You can cut down the composite sticks to fit the size. The more you cut from the length of the shaft, the stiffer the stick will become. Keep this in mind, however if you only need an inch or so, it should not effect the flex dramatically. To cut the composite stick or shaft, we suggest using a hack saw or something with a fine blade (instead of a wood saw).

Which brand of ice hockey skate is the best for wide feet?

RBK skates tend to be wider in the heel, mid-foot and toe than most other skates. CCM is slightly more narrow in the mid-foot. Graf offers both wide and narrow models, but the 705 and G5 are the two that fit a little deeper/wider. Easton skates are wider in the toe and more narrow in the heel. Nike Bauer skates tend to be more narrow throughout.

I'm confused about skate sizes.

When you say "CCM 1.5 sizes smaller than shoe size" does that mean if I am a size 10.5 shoe I need a 12 skate, or a 9 skate? 1.5 sizes smaller than shoes size indicates the the size of the skate you need is that size smaller than your dress shoe. i.e. A size 10.5 shoe would take a size 9 skate.

Are your prices in American or Canadian dollars

All prices on the website are listed in US dollars. Any exchange to Canadian currency would be done by your credit card company or bank at the time of purchase.

I am in Canada. Can you ship me Nike or Easton?

Due to restrictions imposed by the manufacturer, Hockey World can not send Nike Bauer or Easton Products to Canada or anywhere outside of the US.
