SP-Teri figure skating boots lead the industry in skating boot design, quality and fit. Learn what sets our boots apart.
Since 1963, SP-Teri boots have been manufactured in the United States. We source only the highest quality materials so that the SP-Teri name is synonymous with quality.
We’re owned and operated by an Olympic skater and coach. We understand the unique needs and challenges of skaters, and use that knowledge to help skaters find or design their perfect boot.
For control, skaters need a boot that fits snugly but not tightly. That’s why instead of a pointed toe, which can cramp the foot, our last is designed with a rounded toe box. It allows the foot to get close to the end of the boots without squeezing the second, third and fourth toes.
The arch of SP-Teri boots has been redesigned to accommodate the lower arches of today’s skaters. This is especially important for younger skaters whose feet are still developing.
The heel pitch of our boots allows the skater to balance at the center of the blade. A boot with a high heel shifts the skater’s weight to the toe picks, and a low heel throws the weight back. Center balance on the blade gives the skater ideal body position for shifting weight.
The heel in SP-Teri boots is designed narrow to hold the foot more securely. And the back curve holds the heel in a snug position for jumping control.
The V-Cut Flex Notch provides flexibility on take off and landing and helps skaters break-in their boot more easily.
Our leather power tab for midsection support is an external piece of leather to help reinforce the left and right sides of the boot.
For better lacing, offset hook positioning distributes tension in the upper part of the boot and eliminates the potential for pulling hooks off the boot.
We provide lightweight soles and heels for significant weight reduction.
