Good news! WIFA reboots with more service for skaters!
The Schuhfabrik Franz Wittmann has been the manufacturer of the international ice skating brand WIFA since 1963. Although WIFA likes to move with the times, it remains true to the following principle: no compromises in the choice of first class raw materials. The quality is continuously improved, all models tested and optimized.
We were often informed by Wifa skaters that our brand is not available in some countries or towns or even shops. Some sports shops prefer to offer lowpriced mass production skates of low quality. This does not apply for our specialized dealers listed on our homepage who mainly have basic stock or years of know how. In order to give our loyal end customers the opportunity to get the boots they want and at the same time take advantage of special combo offers for blades and accessories, we decided to release two models for direct sale through our factory Outlet & WIFA-WEBSHOP:
NEW STARTER f. figure skating (special promotion - lateral Logo) from net 108,34 € with the option to have a Canadian brand blade "Mark II" (all single jumps) mounted (like Prima Hobby) instead of the standard blades. The New Starter has now the same upper as Prima Hobby that you can get through our dealer's network.
CHAMPION LIGHT f. Competition - for light weight athletes (35-45 kg) landing up to triple jumps who are seeking a light, flexible and well fitted leather boot for their first international successes. They can purchase their boots and blades directly at WIFA factory in the most current widths. For other widths, please send an e-mail to the main address
For other models starting from Prima upwards, services of specialized dealers are required (measurement, choice of right model, heat molding, mounting & grinding of blades, etc.). Klick here to view our specialized dealers.
Leatherboots only - loyality to the principle of quality
For all our models we use only the strongest and thickest leathers sourced in Europe (2.4-2.6 mm) in order to guarantee a maximum of flexibility and durability. In terms of sustainability we are pleased to see that a child‘s Prima has a considerable second hand value and are often used as rental on big ice skating areas in Vienna and elsewhere (i.e. rink at the Red Square of Moscow).
