Figure skates have the greater boots, whose primary task is to keep up and not to limit the mobility, as well as their distinguishing feature is the blade with a long straight area. It offers good acceleration and sliding, and grants you resistance during the training. On the front side of the blade, there are notches. Typically unskilled or too requiring users avoid them and, for that reason, do not want to use figure skates at all. However, the notches do not interfere with the normal skating considering that they are located above the ice surface.
