Skate Laces

Information about laces for inline skates, quad roller skates, and ice skates, including lace materials, the purpose of waxed laces, typical skate lace lengths, and more.

Skate Lace Materials
Skate laces made of polyester or nylon are stronger than laces made of cotton.

Why Buy Waxed Laces?
Many skaters prefer waxed skate laces because they can last longer, but mostly because waxing helps the laces hold a tighter knot.

Length of Skate Laces
Skate laces are typically available in these lengths: 72 inches, 84 inches, 96 inches, 108 inches, 120 inches, and 130 inches, but you will also see 81 inch, 90 inch, 100 inch and 114 inch laces for skates.

Laces for Different Types of Skates
Laces for hockey skates are usually thicker and heavier than laces made for figure skates.

Where to Buy Skate Laces
Hockey skate shops and figure skate shops will sell skate laces, and some skaters use strong boot laces in their skates, which are available at many sporting goods stores. Skate manufaturers and online skate shops are other good places to look. The easiest way to find skate laces is to decide which length and style you need, and search the Internet. To get the larges possible search results, simply search for "skate laces".
