What is the injury rate amongst your skaters or is there none?
Dear Granny, even canvas are not a problem when using plates like the ol’ ACS Skatemates. Sure canvas are a little bit to weak and won’t stand it for long. One of the main problems I learned togehter with ‘conventional’ shoes is that they aren’t made to stand that much sidely pressure you produce on quads. They get worn out – become wide and weak.
(Clones of Skatemates are still produced. These are Made in Germany)
