You'll need to have your new skates sharpened before you skate on them. After that, opinions vary but having them sharpened every 30-40 hours of skating is a common recommendation. You should make sure that you wipe down your blades after each skate session. Skates should not be stored in very hot or cold conditions so leaving them in the car is not recommended.
