In fact we use basket ball shoes and only new ones !
I that comes from the fact that at the beginning, there was no other shoes available to do quad skating !
Basket ball shoes are high, so your feet and your ankles are tightened.
It is also conformatable and easy to mount on plates !
You also have a feeling of freedom. Because you ride with « classic » shoes, the ones you can wear in the street. So you only have the plates more !
It is fantastic
We also use soccer shoes for speed quad skating
Did i answer to your question ?
