Rookie NS2 boot
You'll feel the difference of extra high ankle support immediately. For marathon skaters and mile-hounds.
The NS2 is the cousin of the SR2, for those that have the ability and heart that say "I am Cádo Motus" on those long races where endurance is key. Because Cádo Motus is about the science and speed of intelligent motion.
This boot provides the platform for greatness, from which you'll spring into the lead and cross the finish line first. Control and stability come from a higher cuff that's form fitting at the ankle, for maximum support on the push attack. And there's very little more important than keeping that heel clamped down and seated deep in the pocket for top power performance in your stride, particularly when you're a little higher in your position for extended periods of time. This is where the NS2 stands out. You'll feel the difference immediately, and soon realize how minor adjustments in angle and heel depth have maximum returns. This is what most skaters pay top dollar for in a custom skate - it's all right here with this advantage packed boot.
See for yourself why a purposeful path to development is worth your time as your race times drop and your speed accelerates to new personal and course records. When you add a frame that supports 125mm wheels, you'll have that final advantage, top speed from maximum wheel base, stride support and increased roll.
For marathon skaters and mile-hounds who want to maintain top speed over long distance, this is the right boot to achieve your goals.

Ericon 7/15/2016I had purchased the Rookie NS2 boot back in March 2016. After spending some time skating in them, I can say that they are fairly good boots.
It is the first time I have skated in this style of boot, so it took me a bit a time to adjust to the fit and movement in the NS2. For background information, I was using the PowerSlide Marathon boot before switching over to this boot. Using this boot quickly highlighted all my skating deficiencies and forced me to improve my ankle strength, form, and frame placement. In other words, I experienced some discomfort until I made strides to improve my basic/core skating skills. I also heat molded my boot and that greatly improved comfort and support for my skating.
One area of caution I want to mention is that if you decide to mount 125mm wheels using the Comp Transformer Frame 13.2” (my setup), be sure to order the boot risers as the center wheel will hit and grind the boot without the risers. Also, make sure you have long enough mounting screws as the boot risers will take up some space.
Overall, the Rookie NS2 boot is an excellent choice as it is a light, stiff, and comfortable boot for those looking to stride and glide in their skates.
