No, of course you won't be buying these vintage Ice Skates- but aren't they fabulous?!

Gliding on fresh zambonied ice, sipping hot chocolate at break time, spinning perfectly on point- well, now I am just dreaming. But you don’t have to dream to find inexpensive ice skates in Brooklyn. Good Footing in Park Slope has new and used skates. (Used are mainly just available for children; as the store owner pointed out, “Adults don’t grow out of their skates.” Well, I did! Having kids doesn’t just make your tummy get bigger!) Once you lace up, head out to one of our favorite places to skate in NYC go here.

For children: (new and used. $15-40 for used, new $65)
For women: new (start at $75)
For men: new ($100 for hockey and $140 for figure)
Sharpening is $8 per pair.
If you buy a new pair, they will sharpen them for free. (New skates have to be sharpened, as they don’t ship sharpened skates- it’s a liability- OW!)

**Bring in old skates for discount on new skates at 20% or pay $10 to swap the size. (Your old skates have to be in usable, sellable shape though).

UPDATE:
I went in for women’s figure skates: they have 3 brands. They have 2 very padded brands that you essentially can’t jump or spin in and then the traditional figure skate that you can do all those jumps and twirls. The price for both start at $75. They do run wider than the ubiquitous Ridell figure skate, so there is a difference if you are used to the very old figure skates.  Paragon carries Ridell’s but I actually  ended up buying new skates for myself at Wonderland Sports at Chelsea Piers. Great service. They also have a location near Dyker Heights if that’s closer to you.

  1. Hi there to all, how is everything, I think every one is getting more from this website, and your views are nice designed for new visitors.

  2. New and used ice skates are now available for kids and adults at Good Footing Adventure, 196 7th Avenue, Park Slope, Brooklyn. The used figure and hockey skates do turn over very quickly this time of the year (Holiday 2013), so check in asap for sizes. Lakeside Rink in Prospect Park is scheduled to open 12/20/2013.
