When it comes to performance the biggest problem for female Roller Derby skaters is the lack of arch support. It makes skating uncomfortable for the foot. On average a woman ́s heel has up to 26% less volume compared to a man ́s heel, so women lack a snug heel lock in unisex derby skates and poor heel lock compromises lateral stability.
Together with Sergio Mc Cargo, one of the leading manufacturers of custom boots we developed a specific woman’s last geometry. We call it the EVEFIT proven by women for women who play Derby.
