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.

In collaboration with Bill Stoppard and ProSkaters Place, Adapt proudly introduces the Signature Series Bill Stoppard GTB! This product can be purchased only from ProSkaters Place or directly from Adapt.

The Signature Series Bill Stoppard GTB skate is a very diverse and complete skate package. The skate comes with the new Symetrics Combo frame that allows you to skate both a 4×84 or a 3×100 setup. Both wheel setups are fully included in the GTB package for an easy swap. Furthermore, the skate comes with 3D SLS printed removable sliders that can be used for stalls and slides.

The GTB boot has all the 2021 upgrades as well:

  • The padding in the heel pocket is upgraded for improved fit
  • The nubuck skin is reinforced with ballistic nylon to prevent leather stress around eyelets
  • The internal Quattro mounting plates are now made of aluminium instead of steel. This is not only lighter, it also gives an overall better looking finish.
  • The bottom 3 eyelet sets are now wider apart to allow for more pull on the laces
  • Softfoam added to top of cuff area for improved comfort and fit

The GTB is made with our trusty nubuck 1.3mm leather.  In 2020 we switched from 2mm to 1.3mm nubuck. The thinner material means the skin is just a little bit more flexible, which results in a better fit. While the older GTO model needed some break in time, the GTB 2021 forms to your feet straight out of the box. In short, the nubuck v2 leather provides the same strength and durability but with a better fit. The straps are also single layered to increase fit and comfort.

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 new Symetrics Quattro S frame. The mount also provides an extremely low centre of gravity, with the wheels as close to your feet as possible.

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.

    Je viens de me procurer ma paire de rêve. C’est la quatrième de patin à roulettes que je m’achète et je suis SUPER CONTENT. Elle surpasse de loins tous ceux que j’ai déjà essayer, Je peux le comparer facilement aux patins à glace artistique. Ils sont très très très Confortable. J’ai justement un problème de peau très sensible et je n’ai pas eu de problèmes avec ceux-là. J’ai beaucoup de contrôle et la force est bien dirigée vers la route. Merci BEAUCOUP c’est un cadeau que je m’offre avant mon anniversaire

    STAY LOW – I got these skates and they’re great. I didn’t get them at first because feedback wasn’t strong enough. Nobody seemed to think it was worth it to pay more for these – how wrong they are. It is absolutely worth it
    These are the best skates in every way. I’m a big guy and they fit nice right out of the box, brand new. No breaking in or baking in the oven needed. They’re the most comfortable skates I’ve ever had. And they look the best too. I won’t mention the other skates I have by name, but I’ll say they are too narrow and they hurt my feet. Before I can use them I’ll have to bake them in the oven. Also they don’t look or feel as nice (to me)
    This review had to be made, you can’t just take Bill’s word for it ; )
