SHOES

All curling shoes come with various width sliders. The sliders reduce or eliminate the heat transfered between your foot and the ice. The thicker the slider the less work you do pushing out of the hack, the further you slide and the more time you have to set up your shot.

Unless other wise indicated shoes boast leather uppers and are available for right handers only.  A more compelete description of all the shoes featured below is available at the manufacturers websites listed above.

Grippers and sliders are listed under accessories.

Teachable moment: Never step off the side boards with your slider foot first if you do not have it covered by a gripper.

Gloves & Mitts

Skips may also want a glove that stands out more so as to present a better target as well as making for a better scene vehicle for hand gestures to throwers. Most gloves have a velcro closure system but some do not and are better for people who want a less constrictive closur e. Gloves can have a great deal of warmth but some styles are also used for grip moreso than warmth. They have mess vented sides with leather palm and light padding.
