Becoming a figure skater involves much more than just gliding gracefully on the ice. As skaters progress through the competitive levels, they’ll learn more complex footwork, jumps and spins — and they’ll need the right skates to support them.
We’ve broken down the different skill levels of figure skating, and which Jackson ice skate will suit you best, no matter where you are in your skating journey.
Why Jackson Ice Skates?
After landing the first-ever triple Lutz and taking home the title of World Figure Skating Champion in 1962, Don Jackson began crafting his own line of ice skates.
Decades later, Jackson continues to be a trusted brand for figure skates and accessories known worldwide.
Whether you’re a beginner looking for your first pair of proper skates or a seasoned professional needing stiff skates that are up to the challenge, Jackson is an excellent choice.
