But he’s not looking for a higher heel than toe. He’s looking for “ZERO DROP”

Are there any skate shoes with a decent heel drop? I have been recommended getting shoes with a heel drop.

Hands down this.

No doubt. They're like skating in lifts.

Here is the original post 🤦‍♀️

Heel drop example



Zero drop is a dropped heel compared to normal shoes. Which normally have higher heels than the toe. He literally says here is an example and shows you a zero drop shoe.

OP should chime back to clarify his needs, but if he has what he says he has, he needs lift/support and NOT a 'zero drop' or flat shoe, which is pretty much every normal flat skate shoe...

The term zero-drop refers to the angle between the heel and the toe of a shoe. ... Zero-drop shoes position the feet in their natural state, mimicking the same motion the foot makes when walking around barefoot i.e. FLAT

So when he asks for a shoe that has heel drop, like a running shoe, meaning lift, hence everyone suggestion the Boosentitz.

I wear both drop and zero drop for exercise, drops/proper lifting shoes for squats, zero drop for deadlifts, cross-trainers for regular shit, as well as hiking shoes in both styles depending on terrain (my knees like drop shoes tho when hiking).

For skating, I can't do drop shoes / Boosentitz, puts me on too much on my toes and fucks with board feel and usually forces heel slip...they just feel weird to me.

I've had two pairs of the NB# 440 and have to disagree.. It's a pretty flat shoe. Maybe not as flat as Vans but I wouldn't put it in the same category as the Busenitz

Maybe use those half foot Dr. Scholls inserts for the heel support

Yeah Adidas probably has something that might suit

Maybe have a look at Adidas 3st.004 or liberty cup

Came here to post this.

Sorry if the diagram was a little confusing. I'm looking for heel drop to put less strain on the achilles. Thanks for the suggestions, I think inserts are going to be the best option
