It took a while but we finally found shoes perfect for Dek & Ball Hockey goalies. These shoes allow you several options when threading pad straps and toe ties through the shoe area. This shoe offers multiple options and allows multiple straps to be threaded through the sole, especially helpful if your pads have both a heal and toe strap.
We tested these shoes out in competitive game play and they did very well. They really pull the pad down over the foot and keep goalie pads firmly in place. They help tremendously with overall goalie form, ensuring the goalie pads fold up nicely when in the butterfly position. These shoes are designed for running but the sole makes them great for goal tenders. They do not have any toe padding or protection but they do pull the boot of the goalie pad over your foot, therefore providing protection during game play.
We are taking orders for this shoe. This shoe comes from overseas and can take up to 30 days to process orders until we get more shoes in stock. Shoes in stock will ship within 1-2 business days.
*Note: This ship direct from our factory. 12-20 day processing.

First impressions, yes it's very light and the base of the shoe seems very sturdy with a solid grip. I bought a 10.5 US size which actually fits a little snug. I might recommend going a 1/2 size up if your toes are squeezed at the end. The toggle for lacing up the shoes makes it quick to get into and out of. It's a little strange for me after using a traditional tie up shoe. Overall for the price, very happy with my purchase and looking forward to actually using them in game.
