I've had the Balance Plus 200 shoes for about 3 weeks now. I've gone out in them almost 10 times. Working hard on my balance. I forgot to ask for a thinner slider. I went from a step on slider to the shoes that had a really thick slider (the thicker the slider, the faster you are!).
Its been frustrating, but I'm trying to get to the curling club as much as I can to practice. In Sundays Novice League, I got distracted, forgot to step out with my right foot (the non slider foot) and cracked my head against the ice. Dum dum head.
Here's a video of me with my balance all over the place.
