Our Story

Two-time Olympian, Coach, and Medalist Kip Carpenter spent his entire speed skating career tinkering with his equipment. Never one to be satisfied with the norm, Kip knew the boot industry could do better. And thus, like so many start-ups, Carpenter Boot Company (CBC) was born out of Kip’s garage.

Our Testimonials

“After using CBC custom long track boots for my last few years as an athlete it is great to see the impact the CBC Genesis boots have on the athletes I’m currently coaching. Their stability in their ankles have improved significantly with CBC. We just ordered more pairs for more skaters and we are excited to see the laptimes improve this winter.”

"Upon putting the Genesis boots on my feet, I was in disbelief over the quality, fit, feel and finish. It felt as though I was putting a custom boot on my foot. Can’t speak highly enough of how CBC boots look and feel. Super, super quality. Once I skated on them, I loved them even more!!"

"Our club needed to update its old club boots and wanted a great quality boot, that would last many years and stand up to the rigours of Learn to Skate and new skaters starting with our club. We contacted Adam, the CBC dealer in Australia and decided on the Element boot and blade package and I’m happy to say that they are a fantastic quality package, built to last and budget friendly. Do your club a favour and invest in CBC boots for your new skaters and you won’t look back."

"I’m an Australian Masters short track speed skater who purchased a pair of CBC Genesis boots in May 2019. Fantastic!! I’ve skated in a number of different boots since I started in June 2013 but decided it was time to purchase my first pair of boots. CBC was recommended to me by a fellow skater, Russell Collins, after I’d competed in the Masters International Short Track Games 2019 in April. The boots fit like a pair of gloves, even before heat moulding, so now I skate with no socks, I’m much steadier and can feel the ice beneath my feet. I have been recommending CBC to all my fellow racers who are considering purchasing new boots. Thanks for the fantastic boots you have made. Keep doing great work!"

"I bought a pair of CBC Genesis short track boots a year ago. They are size 43 wide. They fit me perfectly with no heat molding. They are the most comfortable speed boots I've ever owned and I've been speedskating since 1966. I owned Planert, LaBerge, Bont, Oberhammer, and Simmons boots (in that order) over the past 56 years. CBC boots have been the most comfortable and supportive."
