Figure skates have the greater boots, whose main task is to keep up and not to limit the movement, as well as their distinguishing feature is the blade with a long straight section. It offers good acceleration and gliding, and grants you resistance during the jump. On the front side of the blade, there are notches. Often unskilled or too demanding users avoid them and, therefore, do not want to utilize figure skates at all. However, the notches do not interfere with the normal skating because they lie above the ice surface area.
