Hockey v Figure Skates
They have toe picks on the front of the blade, which are usually made of some type or sturdy and very strong metal. The toe picks used for jumps in figure skating. (the toepick (pointy bit on the front of a figure skate) is really not intended to be used as a brake, and if you use it as such, you'll make holes and bumpy spots in the ice which could trip you up later.) Figure skating boots are typically made of several layers of leather and the leather is very stiff to provide ankle support for jumps.
Hockey skates are used for playing the games of ice hockey and ringette. The boot is generally made of molded plastic, leather (often synthetic), and ballistic nylon. Skates used in competitive hockey rarely use molded plastic for the upper boot, as this results in limited mobility. All hockey skates (excepting goaltender's skates) are designed such that they will not cause injury to an opponent, and are fitted with safety blades. Hockey Skates also provide ankle support.
