Not all human bodies are optimal for skating. Many of us are shaped in such a way that the geometry of our hips, legs, or ankles hinders our ability to improve our skating. Ideally, when an inline skater stands in a neutral position, with his body weight centered over their skates, his weight should be evenly distributed across the each foot. On inline skates, this means that they can easily transfer the body weight from one to the other side, and with small movements of the knee instantly apply either edge to steer or adjust a turn or control. But for many speedskaters, this is just not the case. When we try to stand in a neutral position, more of our weight is focused on the inside or outside edge of our feet because of the way our body is shaped. We can have this problem with one foot, or both feet, and the imbalance of weight distribution can go either way – towards the inside or the outside of the foot. On inline skates, these skaters are at a disadvantage because their skate is naturally more on one side. So it's hard to change edges and we must move the knee a greater distance toward the 'high side' to compensate.
Cádomotus frames are typically low. If your boots have also a low mount blocks, you might experience the 2nd or center wheel of your setup to be blocked by the carbon shell of your boot. In this case you need these risers to lift your boot and have your wheels spinning free.
The sketch explain how to place the wedges in case of pronation.

Ericon 7/15/2016These are quality boot risers. Depending on the boots you have, they may or may not be important. However, if you are using 125mm wheels on the Comp Transformer Frame 13.2” and mounting them to the Rookie NS2 boot, be sure to get these. Without the riser, the center wheel (125mm) will hit and grind the bottom of the boot.
