Skate Sizing


Choosing the correct skate size is a very important task and usually even more important than choosing the skates model! All high-quality skates will have a break in period and would adjust over time to the skater’s feet. Some will take longer and some shorter, but while you want to have a comfortable ride you do not want to have the skates too loose… The correct fit will determine much more than just the comfort - it will define how much control, power transfer, and agility you would have while skating, and even would affect the balance.

While various skating styles and skaters themselves have different preferences, below are the general instructions of how to determine the perfect fit for your new skates.
 

WHAT SIZE SHOULD I CHOOSE?

Most of inline and roller skates are manufactured and sold in European sizes (EU), so your US / UK sizing could be a wrong idea to use due to the conversion inaccuracies. Furthermore, even if you know your European sizing, every shoe and skate manufacturer has a slightly different fit and sizing, therefore your standard shoe size might not assure a perfect fit but that is the best way to estimate your skate size. In any case, the inline and roller skate size should be either equal to your shoe size or no more than one size up or down from it.
 
Based on our experience, the best way to determine your skate size is to take a look at your current pair of skates and/or running shoe labels for MM / CM / MP / MONDO numbers. These numbers are indicating the maximum foot length that will fit into the pair, while MM shows the measurement in millimeters and CM/MP/MONDO is centimeters. Having these numbers along with the EU sizes from these shoes, you will be able to determine the size of the skates that you need by looking into brand or model specific sizing chart (usually located in the Sizing tab under the skates photos or as one of the product photos). If cannot be located, please send us an inquiry and we gladly will help you out!
 
Important: Many shops are recommending measuring your feet to determine your skate size, but we have found that this leads to too many mistakes and do not recommend that. If after following the instructions above you are finding yourself stuck in between two sizes, you could measure your feet according to the directions below. In this case, your shoe size is still the defining factor, so if the measurement is showing more than one size up or down, something is wrong with the measurement! If your foot is wider than average, please go one size up. Usually, Seba, FR, and Adapt skates fit wider than average, Powerslide and K2 average, Flying Eagle and Rollerblade average to narrow...
 

Still, want to measure your feet? Here is how to do it:

You’ll need paper, pen, a flat wall and, if possible, a buddy to help. It’s best to measure your feet later in the day after you have been on them for a few hours to account for swelling.
Find a hard floor with a flat wall. Tape a piece of paper down so that it touches the wall. Stand on the paper in bare feet, with your heel just touching the wall.
Have your friend take a book and place it so that it just touches the tip of your longest toe. Mark the spot where the book meets your toe. Do this with both feet and use the larger of the two measurements. Measure your foot length in millimeters, if possible. If you measure in inches, be sure to measure in 16ths of an inch.
Choose your size from the manufacturers sizing chart. The “Max Foot Length” is the longest foot measurement that will fit into that size. The US Men’s column lists the sizes found on the box.
 

SIZING FOR CONTROL OVER COMFORT

Our sizing advice is targeted to a freestyle or dance skater who wants a very snug fit in their skate to enjoy maximum control. Our instructions will give a fit that prioritizes control over comfort. If comfort is a higher priority, or if you have an especially wide or oddly shaped foot, you may do well to choose a slightly larger size. If you are near the boundary between two sizes, you would probably be better off to go with the larger size in case you prefer comfort over control.
 
Notes about Width
In general, the Plastic Boot skates with a built-in liner have a narrower fit through the foot, while the boots with a removable liner and soft boots have a somewhat wider fit. The Carbon is a bit wider through the toe box than the plastic boot skates because the carbon fiber boot has less flex. As a rule of thumb, skates with built-in liners and "regular" liners will have less adjustment room.

ADAPT Signature Series Bill Stoppard GTB 2022 Complete

CAD$1,431.97

In collaboration with Bill Stoppard and ProSkaters Place, Adapt proudly introduces the Signature Series Bill Stoppard GTB 2022 model!

In 2021, Bill stepped up the game with receiving his first GTB Signature skate from Adapt to fit his Assault skating style. Bill has worked on his own style and personal vision within skating for years now. From skating every inch of Toronto, to creating his own division within skating under the name Assault. For 2022, we decided to keep this positive momentum going forward and support Bill Stoppard with a fully updated Signature model from Adapt. The GTB V2 edition. Fully Assault ready and packed with the latest tech from Adapt.

Inspired by the Adapt Superleggera, the 2022 GTB model has gotten several updates:

  • The GTB now comes with a replaceable heel/ankle liner piece. The liner piece ensures a better fit for the ankle, prevents pressure points from the cuff area and can be replaced when worn down, expanding the lifetime of the skates even further!
  • The liner piece can also be removed before heatmolding the shell, to prevent foam compression when pushing out pressure points.
  • The tongue has been redesigned with a pressure-dividing patch to prevent lacebite.

The GTB now comes with an included (removable) 45 degrees powerstrap for increased heel lock. Especially for skaters with flat feet or a low arch the powerstrap can improve the fit significantly.

Showcasing our new logo in a eye catching way, the GTB comes with an embroidered orange Adapt logo on the tongue and an orange embroidered GTB logo on the back of the skate.

Other features:

The GTB is made with our trusty nubuck 1.3mm leather. The supple but strong nubuck forms to your feet straight out of the box and will only fit better over time. The new lining system is made out of airmesh lining for comfort and an overall great fit. The nubuck, airmesh lining and waxed laces work together greatly to get your skates fitting like a glove. The new included removable 45 degrees powerstrap can take the fit of your GTB to the next level.

The included 3d SLS boltprotector is mounted on the topstrap bolts to prevent the bolts and strap from getting damaged when falling over. The boot comes standard with a nubuck boltprotector.

The GTB shell is a Hyperskate diolene shell, finished with extra layers of black twill 3k carbon for improved responsiveness and a dark look. Like all Hyperskate models, the GTB features the Quattromount. The Quattromount is the most versatile mount in the industry as it fits both 165mm and 195mm frames as well as the Symetrics Quattro frames. The mount also provides an extremely low centre of gravity, with the wheels as close to your feet as possible.

The GTB model comes with our Symetrics Combo ‘Stay Low’ frames. This frame allows you to switch between a 4x84mm setup and a 3x100mm setup. Please note only 16 bearings are coming with 2 wheels sets (8 spaces and 8 axles)

The Symetrics Combo ‘Stay Low’ frame is CNC cut out of 7075 billet aluminium and features a perfectly centered mount to create the ultimate feeling of control. The completely intact frame walls makes the frame strong and feel solid when skating.

The Hyperskate GTB is completed with the Symetrics Superfast wheels and the new Symetrics 7-ball ABEC9 bearings.

Adapt Sizing Chart

Make sure you order the right size!
Adapt skates fit like a tailored shoe. While in most skates people need to take one size bigger than they wear in shoes, in Adapt you will need your actual shoe size. Of course, measuring your feet can be really difficult, so if you really are in doubt, feel free to contact us about this. If you have measured your feet and are unsure of the results you’ve got, please contact us as well. Overall you can take one size smaller in Adapts compared to other skates. If you have already downsized by toe-cutting your skate or using a thinner liner in it, you will not be able to go down one size.

Measure your feet as showed here.
