What Makes A Good Skate-Boarding Shoe?

Skateboarding has become a popular sport for teens and adults. There are three important necessities to have to skateboard properly; A good skateboard, of course the ability to skateboard and lastly, comfortable, flexible, and durable skate shoes. An ordinary shoe cannot withstand the stress put on it.

There are various features in skate foot wear: Air pockets, lace loops, grip rubber, stash pockets, and vulcanized soles (The rubber soles are heated so they adhere the shoe. The process is more durable than gluing.) The more features the shoe has, the more costly it can become.

If you are wearing comfortable and sturdy footwear, you are less prone to injuries and bruises.

Skate shoes need to have a strong ollie pad to make the shoe last longer and should also have a thick sole so the shoe stays strong. Skate shoes are built with a large flat bottom to better grip the board.

Here at Rogan's Shoes, we have many popular Skateboard shoes to choose from!

Walking is good for your marriage and can help reconnect couples one-step at a time.

  • Walking is a social activity and allows alone time and time to talk without distraction (kids, work, etc.,)
  • Helps reduce anxiety and makes you feel more calm. 
  • Helps the two of you to slow down from busy work schedules.

Tying Techniques: Lace Shoes Differently!

Ever buy a new pair of running shoes and they still don't fit perfectly? Well it might not be the shoe. The reason could be that the shoe is laced wrong. Here are some problems you may be experiencing and some ways you can tie your shoe differently to provide a better fit:
High Arches:
 This lacing technique removes the pressure points created when laces cross over each other on the center of the shoe tongue. 

Toe Problems:
 Threading one end of the lace diagonally lifts the toe box up to help relieve problems like hammer toes, toe-corns, bleeding toes and toe nail problems.

Heel Slip:
Use two short sets of laces (see the blue and green) to get a snug fit along the length of your foot. The first lace runs through the middle eyelets where you tie them off. The second continues through the last pair of eyelets.

So try these out and let us know if any of these techniques resolve your problem!

Sperry Boat Shoes History!

The trend is back! Who loves a good boat shoe? WE DO! But what we didn't know is the history behind the shoe... so we found out! Read more if you are a boat-shoe lover!

The Sperry Top-Sider is the original brand of boat shoe designed in 1935  by Paul Sperry. Sperry was a boater, and like most boaters, they risk injury while walking on the slippery deck of a boat. He got the idea of the boat shoe after noticing his dog's ability to run easily over ice without slipping. So the boat shoe was made with a herringbone pattern of grooves on the sole to maximize traction.

In 1939, the U.S Navy negotiated the right to manufacture the shoe for its sailors. As a result of the Navy contract, Sperry sold his business to the U.S Rubber Co., which marketed the shoe across the country.

Did you know this? Boat shoes are traditionally worn without socks. Do you wear socks with yours?

Which boat shoe do you like best?

All About Soccer Cleats!

Soccer cleats are an essential part of sports gear. Proper footwear helps any player perform better. When choosing cleats, the most important thing to look for is fit. If the fit isn't right, then the player may experience pain or have an injury.

The upper portion of a cleat is made from either leather or synthetic leather.

 - Genuine leather is typically used on higher-quality cleats. Real leather is softer and more flexible than synthetic. It also allows the player to feel the ball better and it provides breathability. However, these can be more expensive. Intermediate and advanced players will benefit more from soccer cleats made with genuine leather.
 - Synthetic leather cleats are less expensive, but they don't offer the same fit and feel as real leather. If you are looking to purchase toddler soccer cleats, then consider buying synthetic. 

The purpose of Cleats:
The studs on the bottom of soccer shoes are referred to as "cleats." These studs help soccer players grip the playing surface better. They also assist the player to get into a desired position without falling. Cleats also aid players to move quickly in short periods of time. The cleats are made of hard plastic or a rubber-plastic mix. (metal tips are banned because they can cause serious injuries)

Here are just a few soccer cleats available at Rogan's Shoes. Check online and in the stores for more!
