Default Question about the Riedell 195

I've heard that the 195 has a common heel slipping problem. Is this true and will it only happen if the boot is to big or is it due to the low cut ankle design on the 195?

More of a foot thing. I exclusively skate in 195's and have never had heel slip issues, but know some who have. Ya kinda just need to try a pair and see if the problem shows up for you. Everyone's feet are different.

Wink I Skate 195's & XL 35's...

With these type of boots you really want to get them snug fitting to start out with.

I wear my low cut boots a half to full size smaller than say my Kanga 595's or Bont CQR's & Ballangrud's, that being said once the low cut boots conform to your foot they are really great fun to wear!

While I have a pretty low opinion of current production Riedell boots, somehow they still haven't figured out how to screwup the 195 Grand Prix.

Default Yes they slip

I have had my 195 kanga's for about 15years and they have slipped the whole time. I ended up buying other boots since then, but I still just love the look of that boot. I have now turned them into my outdoor skates.

I know other people that have them and they slip too. I recently tried a pair a full size down from what I normally and sure enough.....heel slip. Not everyone has this problem. It also depends on how your skating. Some of my friends just go round and round and talk and don't really skate and they say they have no problem. Others like to shuffle and they are the ones with the problem.

I have to wear EZ fit booties so that mine don't slip. I do have very narrow heels, though.

Mine don't slip, but I think like pavement said, it depends on your foot. I did have to stretch mine out at the back of the heel. The boots were cutting into my achilles tendons something terrible. Now they fit great.

i skate mine for derby, and i dont have heel slip issues, but i did full custom boots with foot tracing and such b/c i wear such a small size they were going to have to be full custom anyways for the size. so maybe that is why they dont slip

That's why I don't own a pair. They cut the crap out of my ankles.

Talking Only Till You Break Them In...

Or your ankles toughen up! My first pair drew blood for a month, after that they opened the world of "Lowcuts" up to me, I pretty much only skate lowcut boots now. XL 35's, Clothtag 195's & my LCQR's...
