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.

Unless other wise indicated shoes boast leather uppers and are available for right handers only.  A more compelete 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.
