CUSTOM SKATE EXPERIENCE
Why should I get custom skates?
There is nothing better than lacing up your new Custom skates that are made specifically for your foot as well as for your game! Here at United, you can choose your favourite pair of skates from Bauer, CCM, or True. There are many reasons as to why players invest in custom skates, from fit and function, to cosmetic. Options include, but not limited to, customizing your own fit, eyelets, colorway, flex rating, liner, tongue, laces, blade, and even personalization name and number on the boot.
How long will my custom skates take?
Wait times vary in season to off season. On average, the wait time for custom skates is 5-6 weeks, however, it is always better to order them sooner in case adjustments need to be made, or if there is a higher volume of orders before the hockey season takes off.

Services included in your new skate purchase:
We customize your new skates to fit you by heating them up and allowing the boot to shape around your feet, this helps you achieve a customized fit.
Most skates these days come with thermos-formable materials, which, when heated up, allow us to adjust the fit of the skate to accommodate each skater’s unique foot.
WHY HEAT FIT YOUR SKATES?
- It enables your technician to customize your new skates to your foot to improve the fit
- When the skates are warm, they become soft and can form around your individual foot
- It helps to cut down on the break-in period, which will improve your overall comfort.
HOW DO I GET THIS SERVICE?
Heat fitting is included with all our new or used skate purchases. Please note: Manufacturers suggest that you do not use skates that have been thermos-formed for a minimum of 12 hours, do keep this in mind when you’re planning your next visit.
