Stop It – Putting Duct Tape on Your Skates

Stop putting duct tape on your skates. It's really not good.

I’m starting a new tradition here at Queen of the Rink. A segment I like to call ‘Stop IT!’.

Just stop it.

Putting duct tape on the toes of your skates will protect them for a bit but really the adhesives are going to start to EAT AWAY at your expensive new skates pretty damn quick. I mean you go out and spend $300 on fancy boots and even get them in custom colors from Riedell but you won’t spend the extra $9 on getting cheap toe guards.

Just stop it ok.

If you’re at practice and ask me for duct tape to put on your skates I’m just going to have to smack you. This is fair warning. Stop IT!
