Jackson Figure Skate Company was founded by Donald Jackson (winner of the 1962 World Figure Skating Championships) and his brother Bill Jackson in 1966. Together with the Bauer Skate Company they developed a line of figure skates which now are worn by figure skaters all over the world. Both Jackson Skates and its sister company, GAM Skates, are both owned by the Canadian conglomerate Tournament Sports.
The Jackson Fit
Jackson has become a leading brand for lightweight performance in Figure Skates. Most skates and boots are heat moldable to help reduce the break-in time. They have a rounded toe box, a medium-high instep, and a medium width heel.
This brand is a good choice for those who have several toes the same length as the big toe, a medium to high arch and medium heel. Jackson knows that not all feet are the same width, so they offer several stock figure skating boots in four different widths.
