How to choose shoes
The shoes are primarily intended to be comfortable and fit. They must be of sufficient size so that they are not too small or too large. In shoes too big we will move foot which is not advisable.

The choice depends on your preference, decay hardness and driving style. The softer the board, the softer the shoe and vice versa. Each shoe consists of an inner and an outer shoe. They must have their own lacing system. Let's also remember to use tall relatively thin socks for better fit and comfort.
