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".
