There are different models of shoes in the room, from a children's shoe to a shoe with a lot of stability, which stability is suitable for you

NB! It is important that you always wear hockey socks when trying on hockey shoes, hockey socks are thicker than normal socks, so the shoe can fit differently. We also always ask whether you wear insoles. If this is the case, put them in when trying on your hockey shoes. In addition to the socks and insoles, we always ask whether you are prone to injuries or have had an injury before so that we can adjust the shoe choice accordingly.

Children's model

The children's model is really made on a child's foot. The shoe is slightly more flexible so that young people can make the right movements. The shoe is lighter and fits well around the foot. Despite the flexibility, the shoe provides enough support so that children cannot make incorrect movements and injuries as they grow.

Middle model

For players who are not prone to injuries and who are even less active in the hall, there are also different model shoes that provide perfect stability, but do not feel too bulky on the foot. The shoes have a twist shape in the sole, which makes movements smooth.

Top model

The top model in the room gives the ankle the strength so that you can make all turns and movements without fear. The top shoes often have a sock model, this sock is formed around the ankle when tying, so that your heel is stuck in the shoe, making sliding and sliding no longer possible. This top shoe is ideal for selection players or people who are prone to injuries in the hall


Hockey boots are the most important items you have for hockey. It is therefore also important that you have shoes that suit you and that fit well. Be sure to visit the store to try on your shoes and get advice from a professional. Listen now to our podcast with Roger from the Sports Medical Center, he explains everything about what you should pay attention to when purchasing new shoes and what is so important about a good shoe. Listen to the episode via the following link.


Too small or too big? When trying on shoes, there should be no more than half an inch of space between the front of the shoes and toes. The shoes should also not be too small, so the toes should not touch the front of the shoe while running.

Too wide or too narrow? We must also rule out a shoe that is too wide or too narrow, as a shoe that is too narrow can cause blisters and therefore cause a lot of pain. If your shoes are too wide, you will slide, causing your toes to turn blue. It is therefore always important to run a bit in your new shoes to feel how they run. While running you may find that you slip out of the shoe or they do not run well. Then you will have to look for a different size or shoe. At The Hockeycentre we offer help to find the perfect shoe for you.
