Kinda following up on the previous asks about the skates, how much do they usually cost? I can't imagine them being more than a couple hundred USD but maybe I'm wrong. (The top of the line ones I mean)
The top of the line figure skates are generally $650-$800ish depending on brand. That’s without blades (those are priced and purchased separately). And also without having any adjustments to the boots done such as heat-forming, custom insoles, poking out the leather by the toes etc.
(Nathan Chen goes through boots approximately every SIX. WEEKS. I’m pretty sure Jackson, a skate company, is a sponsor, but think if you had to pay that yourself XD)
