Default Toe stops for intro Articstic boot

Hi all

I bought some Riedell Rhythm boots (120 boot) but due to my lack of knowledge bought a pair with a plug not a toe stop. Normally Id buy one of the cone type rubber toe stopes but I see a lot of screw in toe stops. Are these more for derby? Any recommendations for a beginner/intermediate level artistic/dance skater toe stop?

Not a lot of guidance out here. Went to my local skate shop and bought some basic 5/8 thread toe stop which are the same size as the jam plugs, happy days!

Standard (or Imperial as we know it in the UK). These are US import, so 5/8 thread (or I could get an adapter for a 5/16 thread, althoughI'd have to import the adapter as well as I cannot find any this side of the pond).

These are the Snyder toe stops offered by sure grip, easily bought online, 5/8th's, I like the one second from the right, but any of them would work.
