THE FIFTEEN QUESTIONS YOU SHOULD ASK YOURSELF

BEFORE BUYING CURLING SHOES.

SHOES

All curling shoes come with various width sliders. The sliders reduce or eliminate the heat transfered between your foot and the ice. The thicker the slider the less work you do pushing out of the hack, the further you slide and the more time you have to set up your shot.

ROOKIE CURLERS - You get 10% off all your first season curling equipment unless the item you select is already on sale. Not only that but you don’t have to buy all your items at the same time. For instance purchase shoes in the fall and get 10% off. Tell us you are a rookie in the new year because you now want a broom and you get 10% off that item as well.

Unless other wise indicated shoes boast leather uppers and are available for right handers only.  A more complete description of all the shoes featured below is available at the manufacturers websites listed above.

Grippers and sliders are listed under accessories.

Teachable moment: Never step off the side boards with your slider foot first if you do not have it covered by a gripper.If you do you may find that the hardest thing about curling is the ice.
