The Shark is a higher boot with more protection and more support.  They have an improved Advanced Super-Soft latex foam gel technology to provide superior grip for maximum control on the ice.  The toe area has a Kevlar like cover for durability and the sole has fingers that are larger than any other broomball shoe.  This should also increase the durability of the fingers.  

To give you an idea on the height of the boot, the highest point of the boot is 9 inches and the back is 7 inches. This compares to a D-Gel at 6 and 5.  The Shark is true to size like the normal Acacia shoe, but the boot is wider and similar to the fit of a D-Gel.  

Indoor Sole

Approximate weight of a size 9 is 682 grams.

Colors: : Black/Red/Gray with Black Out soles

All broomball shoes are men's sizes.  Check out the sizing link on the home page for questions on what size broomball shoe to order.

Acacia Shark Shoe Part 2

There was much delay in writing this second part of the review, but here it is.
After playing dozens of half ice intramural and 40+ full ice C/D level games. I really enjoy the shoe. My biggest gripe from the first review was the stopping distance. Now, it is comparable to other shoes, where I don’t feel like it is taking too long to stop.
Where I am most impressed is the resistance to wear on the sole. I can tell which “fingers” have worn down because there is a pattern on each one. And for me, it appears to only be the outsides of the sole and not the middle. And even so, I can still see some of the pattern on about half of them. My right shoe has extra wear in the direct middle of the shoe, the fingers appear squished, but the pattern is still there. This is probably because I mainly stop with my right foot forwards, applying more pressure on it. Regardless,7 these shoes don’t seem to wear anywhere close to other shoes I’ve worn.
The rest of the shoe looks just about brand new. No color fade with very, very minimal fraying of the shoe material. The right shoe has boot separation from sole on the right side where the shoe creases while the toe is bent. But it is about an inch long and I don’t see it getting any worse. Not a single stitch has come loose or is frayed on the left, but there is two that have frayed slightly on the right, so quality stitching done. And nothing is wrong with the shoelaces, besides the luster from the wax is gone from tying them, the eyelets or the aglets.
Protection-wise, still stellar. I cannot feel minor taps and hits to the foot/ankle and anything more does not hurt. These would be good for anyone that feels like they always seem to get hit in the ankles or just below the knee pad while playing.
Overall, I feel like I won’t be needing to buy another shoe for at least another year from now. I used to get a $60-$80 pair every 6-10 months, but am glad I spent the $120 for potential 2+ years with one shoe.

Acacia Shark Shoe

So I have played two indoor games so far with these shoes (D,C level play). Overall, I am impressed with them. At first it was a bit weird with the height of the shoe, but I adjusted quickly. I did like how the shoe does cover my entire ankle, as I tend to get hit there often.

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.
