Skate Boots

Gear West offers a complete selection of Nordic skate boots to help you achieve your desired skiing experience. Whether you’re looking to race at the Elite level, or enjoy gliding through the woods we pride ourselves in stocking a wide variety of options to ensure your Nordic skate boots fit perfectly.

Length-wise, Nordic skate boots should fit similar to a running shoe, or hiking boot. Sung, yet comfortable! We typically recommend leaving about a thumbs width of space towards the toe. This will allow you to wear a thicker sock for improved warmth and comfort. Both racing and performance style Nordic skate boots will fit similar to a hiking boot. All will rise just below the calf, and offer a supportive ankle cuff for optimal lateral stability. The main differences you will find in Nordic skating boots are the materials they are composed of. Performance Nordic skate boots will typically be well insulated with more forgiving or flexible cuffs and sole materials. These are great for skiers that learning to skate for the first time, or using the boots for general recreation or fitness. Racing Nordic skate boots will have carbon fiber cuffs, soles, and heel chassis for the best power transmission available.
