The Experts in Figure Skating
Since 1978, Geppetto’s Skate Shop and Mr. Edge have been serving the needs of skaters throughout the Midwest. Mr. Edge’s experience and knowledge has made him the world’s leading authority on equipment-related injuries to figure skaters.

His award-winning book, “Anatomy of a Figure Skating Injury” explains and provides solutions to the common blade, boot, and sharpening problems. The book also describes in detail many of the common injuries that competitive skaters are prone to throughout their skating career. It also describes how those injuries can be avoided altogether.
