For clarity, we are not making shoes. We ARE converting your existing shoes into curling shoes. Sliders are 1/4″ material, custom formed to each shoe and attached to the sole. Gripper pods are also formed to the shoe, and are attached with hook and loop (Velcro) fasteners to allow replacement as they wear. Adding a toe coat provides a durable shell to the trailing toe to both protect it from wear and significantly reduce drag on your delivery. Finally, a slip on gripper is added to protect your new sliders off the ice and provide grip while on the ice.
