You won’t be enjoying inline skating that much if your shoe is too big or too small. It’s not fun to skate with pinching feet or blisters. A little bit more room in the toe area, compared to your ice skates, can prevent a lot of trouble. In summer your feet will swell a little bit because of the warmth, so you’ll need some extra room in your inline skates. Vibrations can also stimulate the blood flow, causing your feet to swell. We advise choosing a shoe that is 2 or 3 mm longer.
All Cádomotus shoes are made with standard shoe lasts, not with wider ones. If you need a wider shoe, we advise you to order half a size bigger.
To achieve the perfect fit, our shoes can be adjusted by using heat- or thermoplastic moulding. This means you can heat them in the oven up to 70 degrees Celsius (or 158Fahrenheit), or you can use a blow dryer. This way the shoe will be moulded around the shape of your foot. You will benefit most of the part around your ankles, which can almost be fully adjusted, either wide or narrow. The bottom carbon shell of the shoe is not mouldable, that part of the shoe has to be extremely stiff. Because of the distortion, you have 1 – 2 mm wiggle room in the heel, which can turn out to be 2-3 mm in width.
