Shark Shoe

Acacia $119.99

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

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.
