Edea boots are designed for maximum comfort and the profile allows a full range of motion, making skating smoother and more stylish. The anatomical shell structure gives natural support, the heel pocket holds the foot in place and the inner padding adds comfort without pressure points so you can train harder and skate for longer.
Edea’s boot are designed to let the air in and then use the foot’s movements to pump the air making your feet even cooler.
Apart from making them cooler to wear the air-flow also helps the lining dry more quickly so discouraging bacteria, preventing allergies and reducing odor.
Because top skaters are working harder we’ve introduced extra ventilation at the front of the Fly and Flamenco boots allowing even greater air-flow and added comfort.
The supreme comfort of the Edea skate is achieved through a combination of advances in design across the whole boot. Here at Edea we’ve worked on the shape of the outer boot, the shape of the inner boot, the shape of the tongue and the shape of the collar. We’ve looked at the boot profile and whether the skate is for freestyle or dance. In seeking perfection we’ve left no area unexplored.
We started by making the skate foot-shaped rather than boot-shaped.
This means there is a better fit to the skaters’ foot with the structure designed to avoid creating pressure points especially at the ankle.
The boot is designed to the curve of the foot giving the skater better feel and control over their movements whilst also reducing strain.
The design and modern material means the power generated can also be transmitted better to the wheels making the skate react quicker to each push.
At Edea with our knowledge of skating and skaters’ feet we’ve been able to create boots that are shaped during production.
Our boots don’t need heating or kneading like other designs and will fit most skaters from the box.
The use of thermal materials mean the boots can be adjusted to match even the most awkward feet. This does require special tools and should only be attempted by specialized technicians.
The modular structure of the lining allows each part to adapt to its purpose in supporting the foot while the memory foam ensures the ultimate fit.
Memory foam means that no awkward pre-heating is required as the foam responds to body warmth. Its high density nature also means that it maintains it shape and is long lasting.
Position the heel properly in the boot before lacing – a few simple stamps of the foot should ensure the heel is in place.
The rear profile has also been inclined to move the centre of gravity of the athlete slightly forward to make it easier to perform jumps and increase power when thrusting.
Additionally Edea have modified the top profile so it is rounder and more able to fit the form of the leg. This means the boot can be securely fastened but without the creation of unnecessary pressure points.
Each boot in the Edea range has a slightly modified tongue to suit the needs of the skater.
