PERFORMANCE

  1. • Anti-shock System

    pianoSFUMATOTwo separate layers of anti-shock material have been placed at the bottom of the boot over the whole sole, one in the outer sole, one in the inner sole.

    This system:
    Minimizes impact shocks that cause muscular-skeletal degeneration and injuries through overtraining; increase the amount of force absorbed by the boot on landing thus reducing the strain on the knees and ankles.
    • Absorbs ice chatter which makes skating feel smoother and gives more stability. It also gives you a firmer base to jump from allowing you to jump higher and further.
    • Reduces the wobble on landing allowing the skater to execute quicker jumps and transitions thus improving ice speed and stability.

  2. • Ergonomic heel lock
    heel-lockThe Piano has been ergonomically designed to the curve of the foot giving the skater a better feel and more control over their movements while also reducing strain. The power generated by the skater is transmitted better to the blade making the skate react quicker to each push.
  3. • More support
    7apertureThe boot structure has been reinforced using stronger materials. The new design with its 7 openings (7 notes) and extra stitching both add additional support.
    It allows greater transfer of power. This gives you improved thrust and more control when skating.
  4. • Control and stability
    sottopiedeThe unique insole made with fiberglass and nylon allows more power transmission and increase the stability.
    center of gravityIts revolutionary design also allows Edea to reduce the thickness of the sole thus lowering the centre of gravity and giving the skater even greater control and stability.
    tacco-pianoThe unique heel design adds further stability to the boot. The curve on the heel increases weight distribution, allowing the heel to be in contact with over half the insole giving the skater a sense of oneness with the ice.

    The increased control and sensitivity combines to allow the skater to perform the most technical routines and moves.

  5. • Innovative design
    piano_latoOur designers have used a combination of microfiber and mesh to revolutionize this boot. Light and strong it offers both strength and flexibility. The 7 openings recall the 7 notes and the keyboard of a piano.
    slant-pianoEdea have increased the slant of the foot bed. This shortens the reaction time as the foot is already in position allowing the skaters to be more fluid in their movements as they prepare for jumps.
    orologio velocePiano is different to any other boot on the market. To get the maximum from the Piano skaters should be used to wear boots that have the same stiffness (e.g. Ice Fly) in order to guarantee a short break in period and to avoid strain injuries.
  6. • Lacing

    Double stitching provides the boots with extra strength across the lacing area ensuring greater accuracy and feel in lacing.

    gancio-pianoPiano has Edea’s patented hooks and hook position meaning the laces can hold the boots without the need to strangle the leg. A lace puller will make getting on the ice quicker and help keep the boots pristine by making unlacing easier so the tongue can sit properly when the boots are not in use.

EASY CARE

  1. • Waterproof sole
    Suola ImpermeabileOur hi-tech soles are made with ultra modern material making the boot light and waterproof. Just what skaters need.
  2. • Hi-tech
    piano_latoThe Piano is designed to be light. By using a combination of microfiber and mesh Edea designers have been able to keep the strength while increasing flexibility to add greater fluidity to movements on the ice. The use of Hi tech material means that the Piano is suitable for Vegans.
  3. • Finishing Touches
    cristalloIn a sport where style and grace can be the difference between winning and losing Edea have added extra style to the Piano with six Crystals from Swarovski® added for the final touch of elegance.
  4. • Latest technology for blade mounting
    vitiAll our models use a special double helix screw fixed through predrilled holes to fix the blades. They are designed to hold the blades more firmly and for longer than old methods making skating safer and more fun.
  5. • Designed and made in Italy
    cuore-italianoEverything at Edea is done at our factory in a little village at the foot of the Alps. This means we can control design, quality and production. You buy our boots knowing they’ve been cared from the drawing board until they are placed in the box to be sent to the shops.

Edea Piano boot is available in 5mm increments and 3 widths
B (narrow), C (standard), D (wide).

Colours:
White available from size 225 to 280.
Black available from size 225 to 310.

COMFORT

  1. • Wiggle room
    wiggle-roomBecause of the thinner sole our boots have a lower profile. This means we’ve been able to add an extra couple of millimetres of room for the toes for added comfort while retaining our lower profile.
  2. • Impact sole
    impact_soleAs well as the two anti-shock layers that run through the boot, Piano has a revolutionary inner sole with an anti-shock heel insert that reduces the strain on the body.
  3. • Padded
    The Piano is padded with our top of the range AIR TECH lining offering greater comfort and support. There is additional padding at the ankle for comfort and to hold the heel in place more firmly giving a better foot position.
    Extra padding on the boot edges helps protect the leg while increasing the range of movement. This allows the skater to move and point their toes adding elegance to the performance. The padding is also perforated for added ventilation, allowing the outer shell and inner lining to dry quickly when not in use.
  4. • Anatomical
    comfortAll Edea skates are designed around the foot with curves and strength to hold the heel in place, to support the foot and give the best fit and maximum comfort. The Piano is our most technologically advanced boot. Innovative design means the skates are more responsive to power giving the skater both increased acceleration and control.
  5. • Quick drying
    The micro-perforated air tech lining is anti-allergic, anti-bacterial, dries rapidly ensuring your boots are fresh for the next session.
  6. • Tongue
    The tongue is key in any boot. In the Piano the tongue gives the increased flexibility required by skaters at this top level. Its anatomical shape helps the leg bend in jumps while additional padding increases the comfort.
    passalaccioMultiple tongue tabs also help to control the tongue position lifting it away from the toes giving the boot a better fit.
  7. • Custom Fit
    Anatomically designed with memory foam lining our boots are significantly more comfortable than old fashioned ones. The thermal shell is heat adjustable so every boot can have the bespoke fit that skaters at this level need.

  2. Why it is so important lace tight the instep?

    The heel area is the part of the foot that controls the skate and it is essential that the heel is kept in place during skating.
    For this reason we recommend that rather than even tension throughout the lace that an ‘egg timer’ pattern is followed as this ensures correct foot position and maximum flexibility…

  3. Why the Piano has the extra binding on the tongue?

    passalaccioOn our PIANO boots a further binding is applied over the tongue to avoid it bending and hitting the top part of the toes during strenuous movements. The tightened laces keep the tongue firmly attached to the upper to maximize performance.
