: : Tell me more on the aluminum sole! I've got some $9 soccer shoes here waiting on a speed/jumping set up. I think with trucks forward mount, maybe just my probe plates cause then I can put on the ramp trucks if I like. So like 1mm aluminum? Cut it up with a jigsaw and use a drill?
About 1/16 to 1/8 inch thick. Probably too thick for a jigsaw. More likely a hacksaw or bandsaw. Since you're only a wee little lass you can maybe get away with the 1/16 thick.
: : Yeah, he can rip! Dudette wanna rip it up too!! :-D weather is crap so I'm having fun on u-tube daydreamin it up.
Our weather has been crap for over a month.
: So Dave, would the basketball shoe be better for jumps? I was thinking that if I needed ankle support, I could just wear neoprene supports and have low cut boots. Then if I wanted, I could use them as speed skates too.
Something that goes over the ankles would be better for jumping. The low cuts are fine for distance skating.
