hey YouTube Chris from hockey tutorial here so today we're going to be doing a quick tutorial on how to find your ice hockey skate size and width from home so hopefully this video might make it a little bit less complicated for buyers who have to get their skates online it's always a lot more helpful if you know your exact skate size and width before ordering your skates online the following things you'll need to have with you are you carrying out this tutorial you'll need a flat surface to sit on a chairs best you'll need two pieces of paper the both of your feet can fit on you also going to need a pen or a pencil so you can draw around your feet while they're on the paper you're going to need a ruler and a calculator and an important thing to also have with you is try to keep the socks that you're going to have while your hockey skates run so if they're going to be proper hockey socks or just standard normal socks just have them on while you're measuring because they'll give you a much more accurate size hopefully another useful point to this video will be they will show you how to measure your escape length in inches and centimeters and what that means is that as you may or may not know a lot of brands have their skate size is slightly different to others so if you have your skate length and width in inches it means that you can compare it to some of the other brands and get you much closer fit because being a size ten in a bower skate might not mean that you're a size 10 in the CCM skate so the first part that's taller that you need to do after collecting all the things that you need pencil ruler the two pieces of paper the the both your feet can fit on and somewhere to sit down as we recommended the chair would be best you want to place one of your feet onto the pieces of paper making sure you have enough space in front and behind because you're going to need to draw around it and to draw around it you want to have the pencil facing straight up and you always want the pencil to be in contact with you foot while you're drawing around it you don't want it to be away or unto me if you want it to always be straight up and always be touching your foot as you draw around it so I just give that a go so same again put this foot down make sure you have enough space in front and behind keep the pencil straight up as possible and always have it in contact with your foot as you're going around and that's both feet done I'll show you what comes next it's just a quick example there's my size right there and from here what you're going to need to do is draw a line horizontally that way just across the highest point of your toe so the end of your toe in my case that'd be right there and you also need to draw another line at the base of the hill right at the end of you here those two lines going to be used to determine the length of your foot which you'll need to determine the width and also what you need to do is just draw a line across the widest part of your foot that's going to be the sizing of the width you're going to go with so in my case that would be roughly about their cross there so I draw three lines in total one of the base of the drawing right by my heel another one at the top of the drawing at the end of my toe and another one of the widest part of your foot you're going to need to do this for both of the sizes that you do because in some people's cases or in most people's cases not all of your feet are the same size you normally have one foot slightly bigger than the other or one for slightly wider than the other so it's important to get two sketches of both of your feet and you're going to go with the biggest foot that would be the size that you'll go with just to make sure that the skates fit comfortably you can also do this exercise with someone else if you want someone else to draw around your feet it's better to stand up that's the best way of getting accurate reading from somebody else drawing around your feet instead of yourselves so after you finish drawing around both of your feet you need to measure both of them as I'm about to show you now and you need to take the biggest size from both the measurements that you get and use that size as your hockey skate size the reason for that is a lot of people have one foot bigger than the other or one foot wider than the other so it's a really good idea to get a measurement of both of your feet so then let's play the video I'm just going to show you how to measure your feet after you finish sketching around as I have you want to find the longest part of the toes or the end part your toes which is right there in my case and you want to draw a vertical line just straight across from there so you want to go right to the end of the toe and draw a line just straight down the next part is to draw a line across the widest part of your foot in my case that looks like it's going to be right about there it's important to make sure the line stays within the sketch of your foot while you're doing this because that's what you're going to use to find the width and the last part is to just draw a line at the base of your foot by your heel right at the end and that's what you're going to use to determine the length of your foot I'll show you that it's the last part of the video is you just need to measure out the different lines that you've drawn on the page so I'll start with the end point of my toe and the endpoint of my heel or the furthest point at my toe in the Empire my Hill I'm going to be measuring in inches you just want to put the ruler straight across to make sure you get the measurements as accurate as you possibly can so for the length of my foot it's coming up at 10.35 four point two so I'm just going to write that down and then the next part is just to divide the length by the width and then I'll show you how to make use of the reading so for the last part of the video as we said you need to divide the length by the width so I'm just going to use my calculator for that so as we said my length was ten point three and the width was four point two seven divided ten point three by four into so I've got a size of two point four or five as we said the only numbers need to pay attention to are the first number and two numbers after the decimal place so you can just ignore the rest of those numbers there so as we said my size is two point four five and to give you an idea of how to translate that into width if the numbers that you get are higher than two point six five then you'll probably be good with the signs like a D width which is an average size if then if the numbers that you get under the calculator are between two point five and two point six five a science e should be okay for you in my case the numbers are below two point five which means I need to go into much wider width territory such as size double e and are in my case my size translates to an e e or a double e if you want more information about the different sizes the numbers are quite overwhelming to take in for the first time there'll be a chart available at Halki tutorial com that translates all of the different widths that you get into a size on escape for you if you'd like to find your skate length out all you need to do is just get the length written down in inches work your way over to our key tutorial calm and we'll have a chart that you can enter in the size that you got in inches and we'll be able to translate that into a hockey size we'll also have it available in different brands so you can find out what size you are in all the different brands just to get you a bit more prepared for ordering your skates and hopefully that should make it a lot easier and the length of my foot that equaled ten point three inches and using the sizing chart available hockey tutorial Kombat worked out to be a size nine us just taking a look at a pair of this most recent skates have got I had these fitted in the store and that was the size that I got recommended which is a 9ee which is the exact same size that the method I've shown you here today works out so it's a really good method to use if you guys need more tips and help visit hockey tutorial comm don't forget to subscribe and rate it's better ain't got no money

    You have a regular ruler; each inch is divided into 16 segments not 10. Your 10.3 inches is really 10 3/16 which is really 10.1875 written as a decimal. I know, the standard system sucks!

    Wish I'd seen this before I let the ice rink shop staff fit me with hockey skates to replace my old ones. The insoles are 15mm longer than my feet and I can stick four fingers down the back when unlaced with my feet pushed forwards. My ankles are held tight though. Would a better fit make much difference to my skating? Bear in mind I can do basic moves such as backwards crossovers, t stop, snow plough and inside edge hockey stops, albeit not well.

    Excellent mate, thank you!! As an ex hockey player of 50 with no access to a rink or skate shop, but who still street skates/inline hockeys daily, this was an invaluable resource for shopping online! Cheers mate!! Great tutorials too, bud!

    What would you suggest for two very different width feet? I've measured and my right is at 2.69 and my left is at 2.30. Should I buy a D width and try getting it punched or am I pretty much stuck buying two pairs of skates?

    I've never heard of a ruler marked in 10ths of an inch. But, I like it! It's a lot easier than messing with sixteenths and eighths and quarters of an inch. You guys do everything better in the UK. I'm jealous.

    Oh,
    you measured your feet lenght as 10.3" (26.16 cm) which maps to 41 EU (if I understand correctly). But at 8:48 I can see your skates are 43 1/2 EU. Did it mean that skates had free spaces at your toes?

    Hi and thanks for the video. I have encountered that bauer skates (senior) usually only come in a EE width when trying to order online. Is there a particular reason for this? According to your formula i have a regular width in my skate. Thanks

    Curious, you say your foot measured 10.3 in your chart (if I'm reading it right) says you would be in a 7.5 skate, but you ended up with a 9.  what am I missing.
