Preheat an oven to 180 degrees. Pull the tongues outward from the skate boots and lay both skates on their sides on a baking sheet. Place the skates in the oven for no more than 10 minutes.

Can I bake my hockey skates at home?
Some skates will come with specific instructions regarding temperature and time of baking. If not, you’ll find home-bakers recommending anything from 175 to 210 degrees Fahrenheit. Once it is preheated, turn it off. Bake for three to four minutes, unless the manufacturer specifies a time.
Do you have to bake hockey skates?
It is important to note that baking is NOT a necessary process. In fact, some players prefer the traditional way of breaking in skates which is to simply wear them. Recreational and beginner skates are not recommended because the bake would make the lifespan of the skate much shorter.
What temperature do you mold hockey skates?
Pre-heat your oven to 175 °F (79 °C). To get the skate material to loosen you need to heat it so that the molecules soften, but the materials don’t come apart. 175 °F (79 °C) is the ideal temperature for this process as it won’t be hot enough to melt any plastic on the skate.
How long does it take to bake hockey skates?
Once pre-heating is complete, turn off the oven and place one of your skates on a standard baking sheet before placing it directly on the center of the oven rack. Let it bake for six to eight minutes and watch the skate for any breakdown or splitting of the material before removing it.
Do you really have to wait 24 hours after baking skates?
I would recommend at least 24 hours after baking before use. That way all the materials that get softened up by baking have time to cool and harden to the mold of your foot.
How do you bake skates with a hair dryer?
Hairdryer: A less invasive alternative to baking your skates is to heat them up using a hairdryer. You will need to heat up the inside of your skates until they are hot enough to mold, then follow the same steps as baking, where you lace them up, leave them on for 15 minutes and then leave them set for 24 hours.
How soon can you skate after baking skates?
You should wait 24 hours before skating on them.
Can you bake cheap hockey skates?
In general, higher-end skates can be baked, while you probably shouldn’t bake low-end skates. Subjecting lower-level or recreational skates to the temperatures required for heat molding can cause the materials to break down faster, decreasing the skate’s ability to provide support and shortening its overall lifetime.
How do you bake hockey skates in the oven?
Turn the oven off before placing the skates inside. Use the oven mitt to place the skate inside the oven, and make sure the skate is not touching anything but the baking sheet. Close the oven quickly to keep the heat trapped inside. Let the skates sit in the oven for approximately five minutes.
Can you put skates in the oven?
First things first, you can bake your skates in your own oven at home. However, I wouldn’t suggest it (nor would Glen), because you can ruin your skates if you don’t know what you’re doing. Glen uses a cold oven, which puts every piece of the skate to about 200 degrees and makes it very mold-able.
Can you bake old skates?
Can I re- bake to my feet? Unless they’re starting to break down (lose a lot of stiffness) already from the previous owner, you should be fine. However, if a skate is already very well- worn, rebaking can cause it to get too soft. Higher-end skates also tend to be able to handle more bakes.
Can I bake my skates with waxed laces?
NO! You should never bake your skate with wax laces. It will melt the wax.
Can you bake Bauer ns?
You can bake your skates in all of these Bauer lines for an even better fit.
