    Makes one wonder why are they called generic “ice skates” instead of badass “knifeboots”.
    People who determine what words are canonically right terms for things are all boring assholes.

      My theory is that they were originally called knifeboots, then someone (probably the same guy in the UK that decided to misspell aluminum) changed the name because of how impractical they were in combat.
