The EDEA Preludio is the Beginning Competitive Skating Boot for FreeStyle and Figures. Ultra Light Soft Construction with Beautiful Leather finish outside and perforated MicroFibre Lining. The Preludio is made with Revolutionary NEW Ultra Lightweight Materials which means that the Preludio is 25% to 45% lighter than comparable Skating Boots. The Preludio is designed for the Beginning Competitive Roller FreeStyle and Figure Skater and is incredibly comfortable.
The MicroPerforated Leather Lining is ventilated so the perspiration moisture dries quickly. The Anatomically Shaped Padding and Formed fit of the boot is shaped by the Thermoformable Structure and provides the best in foot contact and control while giving the movement range to allow Great Performances. Other features are the Rounded Heel Shape which more evenly distributes the weight and adds torsional stability, the Full Wrapped Padding, the Shaped Extra Padded Tongue, and the Sewn in strong forged long Hooks. The Footbed has Ventilation and is torsionally rigid but with just a bit of vertical compression, that creates a lower center of gravity in the Skate, that creates a lower displacement which greatly increasing stability and control.
In most cases the Break-In period is just a few hours, not days, weeks, or Months, but the most important Features are how LIGHT and COMFORTABLE the EDEA Accordo is.
EDEA strongly recommends the use of Power Wedges to be installed between the curved Skating Boot and the flat Roller Frame to keep the foot in itís natural and to NOT Deform the Boot. A major advantage of the Power Wedge is that it provides VERY Secure CONTACT between the Boot and Skate Frame. This gives more power to each push and stroke, thus the name POWER WEDGE. It is not necessary to use the power wedges on a Roller Frame with a sloped front>
EDEA Skates fit a great majority of Skaters (because of the newly designed shoe lasts), right out of the box, but some have need of special accommodations to give that perfect fit. EDEA Skates ALL have a Thermoformable Structure which allows manipulation of the boot to give the perfect Custom fit without the Custom price. EDEA Skates use very high tech materials (similar to a carbon fiber or Kevlar material) which can be shaped using Heat Guns and Special Shoe Lasts, in very specific locations or general widening or narrowing of the Skating Boot. Once the boot is re-shaped, it will stay in that shape, until the shaping process is changed again.
