Vintage ice skates Leather skating boots Pinnacle blades 5 1/2 Winter sports
A pair of vintage ice skating boots.
The Sheffield steel skates are marked MADE IN SHEFFIELD and PINNACLE SPECIAL.
The colour is beige.
The tongues are padded with what appears to be sheepskin.
UK shoe size 5 1/2
The soles measure 10 inches x 3 1/4 inches on the outside.
Weight 1350g approx.
Vintage skates, in fairly good condition, but far from perfect.
Please remember that these skates are probably the best part of a century old, and do NOT conform to modern safety regulations.
They are NOT safe to wear on an ice rink, and are sold purely as collectors' items.
The boots are in need of cleaning - the surface of the leather is stained, particularly on the instep of the right boot.
There are some minor scuffs on the leather.
The sheepskin(?) pads on the inside of the tongues are past their best - possibly moth-eaten?
The screws holding the blades to the soles of the boots are not a matching set.
The leather is supple, but with scuffs and stains from normal use, as shown.
There is a little rust on the metal blades.
