These are classic and traditional ice skates. They are white with laces and look like typical figure skates. Crafted with flex notches which enhance flexibility, these designs have leather tongues with comfy foam backings. As well, they feature soles made from LCL, which is cork leather that is layered. This type of sole is very strong, but remarkably lightweight. In face, you’ll find that the soles of these skates weight about seventeen percent less than most figure skate soles! A lighter skate is more comfortable to wear and it won’t slow you down on the ice!
