We can make allowances for orthotics, arches, toe room, heel spurs, foot irregularities, bunions, etc. You can choose colors, leather temper, ankle/boot firmness, heel height, and lining materials, plus add custom graphics and much more. If you can dream it, we can build it!

Special Boot – One change: $80.00 US / $100.00 CA

Want to order your new Full Custom Boots? Here's what you need to do:
  • Visit your local Riedell Authorized Dealer or call us at 800-698-6893 and speak to one of our knowledgeable Customer Service Representatives. They will be able to go over pricing, production time estimates, and more. 
  • You will need to provide tracings of your feet on a piece of paper and measurements of these 5 areas of your foot: the ball, instep, heel, ankle, and top.
    • Tracings and Measurements should be provided from both a seated and standing position. 
    • Your local dealer will be trained in how to measure your foot and the custom boot ordering process. However, if you can't make it to your local dealer, our Customer Service Reps will be able to walk you through the process.
  • You will also provide us with the boot model you want, the leather colors you want, and provide a PDF or different vector-based format (like AI) of the graphic/decal/number you would like added to your boot.
    • We offer the option of cut-out leather graphics or embroidered graphics
    • Some designs can be too intricate for us to make. It's usually best to void small sharp edges and extreme detail. If a design is too detailed and can't be created by our boot maker, we might ask for you to redesign your graphic. We may also request the repositioning of graphics and reducing the size of graphics depending on placement on the boot due to how the boots are constructed.
    • Don't forget to make your custom boots complete custom skates with plates, wheels, bearings, and toe stops of your choosing. There is a built-in discount on components when combined with boots to build a skate.
  • Once we have all the necessary information from you, we will begin to build your dream custom boots. A pair of Full Custom Boots will typically take 12–14 weeks for production and shipping.

We guarantee the craftsmanship, materials, and most importantly, the correct fit of your Riedell custom-built boots for one year. If for any reason you are not satisfied with the boots within one year of the purchase date, the boots may be returned for corrections or repair.
