When is the right time to get a custom made boot?

We recommend to get new Junker Skates while you still can skate with your old boots, but they show signs of wastage already. For example, cracks or rubbing through parts on the inner leather layers as well as an instable carbon shell. Fast action has to be taken if there is danger of getting ganglions or dents on your feet. There is enough time for our customers with unstressed feet and still usable old skates to get accustomed and be able to run in their new Junker Skates. This point is far more important for customers who have determined settled goals for their upcoming race season.

Preferably, we recommend our customers to contact us for a mold appointment in advance, before the beginning of the new race season (especially for customers who already have settled race meetings). Particularly, the winter and spring-time is a good period to run in a new carbon boot and get ready for the upcoming events!

Customers who want to change from a high soft boot to a low carbon shell boot can strengthen their leg and ankle muscles through special work outs. Thereby a change of inline skating boots will be much easier. Special work outs are for example, wiggling boards or knee bends on inflated hot-water bottles to strengthen tendons, ligaments and muscles structures. Additionally a slow and easy skating with half open boots can be helpful. Even this kind of exercises stabilizes muscles and tendons!

We recommend making a mold appointment in the morning or early afternoon because feet tend to swell during the day due to long standing or other stressful activities. The intense of the swelling can vary from individual to individual. This differences can be regulated later on by tighten up or loosen up the laces and buckles on the new boots.
