Acacia Shark Shoe
Now to the important stuff, on ice performance. Because how high the shoes are, they tended to force me towards my toes when going any faster than a walk. No noticeable difference for me. When running, they had pretty good grip and, surprisingly, good grip when turning while running. It almost felt like there were weak suction cups on the bottom letting me have more horizontal movements then I normally have. My acceleration from start was equivalent to any other shoe, but acceleration from a jog was a bit faster and easier. The sole is also has harder “fingers” than normal shoes and I’m guessing with last much longer.
My biggest con for this shoe is the stopping distance. This could be because the oils or whatever is on from manufacture, but it felt like it took forever for me to stop. At full speed, my stopping distance was about 7-10 feet, which is rediculous to me. And we had a wet spot on the ice and any time I touched it, it was like I was wearing tennis shoes. Again, that could go away as I play more games.
So, overall, after two games, this shoe is worth the money and will last longer than most shoes.
