I also prefer speed boots for comfort and control, but my sister had an accident skating at the park 3 years ago and ended up with a serious ankle break. She was not able to get back on skates again for over a year and a half, and her ankle movement is still slightly restricted. Also, the remaining metal supports and screws installed during the several surgeries are still present and put pressure against the skin from the inside making certain skate movements uncomfortable. She must wear extra padding on the affected foot to counter the problem.
These boots I bought shortly after her accident. I do not know for sure that they offer more protection, but they sure do feel very supportive! Modifications continue, making the skates work better with each alteration.

Well, I had the heel tear out from one of the mounting bolts on the right boot. The soles on those old hockey boots are relatively thin, and could not stand the rigorous abuse of vert skating. I had to reuse my trusty old Riedell 125 speed boots that had been mounted 3 times before, and successfully fitted them to my vert plate setup. The heel is low enough to not cause me any balancing problems while negotiating the coping, and the ankle flexibility makes everything seem to flow.










Unfortunately, I had a plate failure on my second session with this newer boot setup. See This Other Thread for details and pics.

You'll be happy you changed to the speed boots! They are great for vert.

Talking Continued Evolution

Here is the next version of my vert skates. I have been working with a couple of ideas over the last few months and have finally found a good workable solution.






I have wondered many times if doing a UFS mount was feasible, and also have been curious as to the working usefulness of skateboards cut up for base plates. This feels like a real winner for me!

Skateboards. It takes 2. The central area of a typical skateboard is flat and quite suitable.





Maybe tonight I could trek up to Austin for a session? No definite plan yet though.
