Beginner and recreational skaters will appreciate the soft boot comfort and support in this attractive restyled skate. The 18 Sparkle has an updated look, stronger hooks and slightly more support than the original Sparkle’s light support rating. Man made uppers with extra comfort padded linings cushion feet and a split tongue design provides stability on the ice. A maintenance free PVC sole keeps feet dry while a stainless steel blade gives skaters a smooth edge. The 18 Sparkle Junior is perfect for a beginner or recreational skater. Also available in ADULT sizes: Order model 118 Sparkle with a violet lining!
