Edea Skates is based in Treviso, Italy and first hit the ice in 2002. Since then, they have gained immense popularity in the figure skating world due to their superior craftsmanship and comfort that is unlike any other figure skates available on the market.\nSome notable features of Edea Skates include their near-weightless feel, heat shaping customization, and comfortable foot positioning, allowing the skater to feel one with the ice.\nEdea Skates combine fashion, function, and technology and sets a high bar for skate standards and development. The brand also consistently checks in with skaters and asks for feedback to improve its products.\nEdea Skates has nine boots in their Ice Collection, the most popular ones being Ice Fly, Piano, and Concerto. In this article, we dive into the features of these three models and look at what makes them unique from each other.\nEdea Ice Fly\nThe Ice Fly is the ultimate combination of agility and elegance. It is the lightest skating boot available on the market and is specifically designed to support triple, and quad jumps on the ice.\nWith a support index of 90, the Ice Fly is a robust boot that still allows for a flexible range of motion and gives each jump some extra height.\nThe outer shell of Ice Fly is made of Technomicro, a microfibre that is thinner than silk but stronger and more water-resistant than previous materials.\nCombined with an innovative honeycomb footbed and a more extended arch design, the boot allows the skater greater control and increases power transmission on the ice. In comparison to other models, the Ice Fly also has a thinner sole which lowers the centre of gravity and improves sensitivity on the ice.\nHere are other unique features of the Ice Fly:\n\nDual Sole for a smoother glide\nNew inner Air-Tech mesh fabric lining for insulation and air cooling\nMesh and microfiber panelled uppers\nErgonomic heel pocket to keep the foot aligned\nMemory foam ankle padding to maximize comfort\nGalvanized carbon steel hooks positioned to improve lacing\n\nEdea Piano\nThe Edea Piano is the most supportive boot the brand has to offer. Its patented Anti-Shock system increases a skater's stability on landing by absorbing and lowering impact vibrations. With a support index of 95, it's designed for skaters perfecting their triple and quad jumps on ice.\nEvery time a skater lands a jump, there is an impact on the body. The force of this impact depends on the weight of the skater and how the skater landed the jump, but it is estimated to be between two and eight times the skater's body weight.\nEdea Anti-Shock uses two materials, Noene and PORON, to absorb this heavy force and reduce ice chatter, making skating smoother and allowing the skater to transition between skills more quickly.\nThis advanced technology also helps prevent injury and painful stress on the skater's joints and bones, allowing them to train longer and harder.\nIn addition to shock-absorbing technology, the Edea Piano also has the supportive and lightweight features of the Ice Fly, including:\n\nA lightweight Technomicro outer shell\nThermoformable support for a customized fit\nMemory foam padding for a perfect fit every time\nInner Air-Tech lining for advanced moisture resistance\nA responsive honeycomb footbed for greater control\nAn ergonomic heel lock to align the foot\n\nEdea Concerto\nThe Edea Concerto is designed with high-end performance ice skating in mind. It carries all of Edea's premium experience and know-how and combines modern technology with a traditional look.\nWith a support index of 85, the Concerto is rated highly for triple and quadruple jumps as well as pair skating, which often requires additional support for throws and lifts on the ice.\nThe Concerto gives a classical look, but it is packed full of innovation, making the boot strong and responsive. The outer shell is made of specialty coated leather which makes the boot waterproof and easy to clean, while the inner SH microfiber lining is lightweight yet durable and strong.\nLike all other figure skating boots from Edea, the Concerto has a lightweight tri-layer boot construction that provides unrivalled comfort and support. It is also thermoformable, allowing for an instant custom fit to your feet.\nThe Edea Concerto is a robust boot for a skilled, top-level skater and is often the boot of choice for many of the top skaters in the world.\nLooking for the perfect pair of skates?
