What type of boot cover should I get?

I just got a pair of new ice skates. What type of boot covers and soakers should I buy? Does anyone have any tips on ice skate care?

Also, if anyone can find a link to a good pair of soakers or boot covers on ebay or amazon, that would be a lot of help!

Thank you!! :)

You don't need boot covers. You can get them if you want though - people mainly wear them to protect their skates (although I've heard they get torn quite easily) and because they look cute (well, they think they do. Personally I think they make skaters look a bit like they have hooves, but that's just my opinion...). They are by no means essential though.

However, it is best to have soakers, and hard guards too. Soakers are to soak up excess moisture after you have skated, and guards are to protect your blades when you walk around off-ice.

While you skate when you get off the ice you should always wear hard guards. This helps your blades hold sharpenings for longer and prevents them from getting damaged (sometimes there can be screws or uncovered metal on the floor. Plus, sometimes other skaters may step on your blades, especially in public sessions - eek!).

After you skate, make sure you thoroughly wipe down your blades with an absorbent cloth or rag. Then, put the soakers on them. As soon as you get home, take your skates out, soakers off, and let them air for at least 24 hours. Then you can put the soakers back on (or the hard guards, but I wouldn't recommend it because there may still be some moisture on your blades). DO NOT store your skates in hard guards! This is just about guaranteed to cause rusting!

For boot covers, you can really buy whichever ones you like. There are many different patterns and colours out there, so it's personal preference. As for your guards, there are two types of guards - spring guards and centipede guards. Most people use spring guards, and Guardog is generally the most popular brand. Any brand of soakers will do, really. Some are ridiculously overpriced though - you don't need light up guards or fuzzy soakers.

You may want to check out the prices at your pro shop - they'll probably have everything you need, and may be cheaper than buying online because you won't have to pay shipping costs. But here are some eBay links:
