Men’s jam skates are meant to fit snug as the skates themselves become an extension of the skater’s feet. All the moves that jam skaters do make it necessary to have a tight fitting skate that will move with them when they are moving and jiving to the music. When you first try on your new jam skates they may feel a bit tight but there will be some break in, and the skates will fit better after a few skates. As long as your toes are not curled or crunched upon trying on your skates, the break in will allow for a good fit.
Originally, jam skates would offer a high cuff boot and a large toe stop but this design proved to hinder the ability to truly jam skate. Now jam roller skates offer a low cut boot which gives skaters the freedom to really move while still offering support lower in the ankle. Jam skates will offer a jam plug for a brake system now which is a smaller brake setup on the front of the skate which still allows users to brake but will not get in the way when busting moves.
Many men’s jam skates will have a cover over the laces. This cover is not a strap and is not the tightening mechanism for the skates. Under the cover is a standard lace setup which works well to tighten the skates for comfort and support. The cover acts as protection for the laces to ensure nothing gets damaged or comes loose while you’re skating.
