Testimonials

Ian Robertson worked with myself and many other professional and celebrity skaters on the ITV show Dancing on Ice.
Ian worked with us from 2006 until 2012. During this time he looked after the maintenance of everyone’s boots and blades in a very professional way.
His knowledge in this area was so important for all the skaters. For me personally Ian arranged a pair of new boots that were made to measure from a company called klingbeil and they were excellent.

Ian was always very helpful and knowledgeable in this area and was a pleasure to work with.

Great service and expert opinions, I purchased skates which were a custom size and fit like a glove out of the box due to their extensive fitting experience.

Ian has equipped, advised and supported generations of skaters worldwide to ensure they had the right equipment.

It is maybe more important to say his excellent after sales service was vital in so many skaters development not only on ice but his attention to detail made sure the skater had a confidence in their equipment.

It didn’t matter if you were a total newcomer ( I remember going to his house in Cumbernauld many years ago) or an international skater you could be assured of the same wise counsel and level of service which suited your needs.

Ian is fantastic, always helpful, and is a force to be reckoned with in his knowledge of figure skating equipment and alike. Could not recommend them enough from my experiences in the UK.
