Default It occurs to me

That the loss of a natural balance would far outweigh any benefits from using "stronger toes". Especially since the toes aren't there for strength, they're there for balance. It takes very little centering error to make the skates want to turn inward or outward on their own, and the only way to overcome it is with muscle control in the ankles.

I'l be interested also to know how they work for her.
