Gripper: 2 AlternativesFor the anti-slider your can choose between the classic pullon gripper or the podsystem that BalancePlus designed especially for the Series 500.
Most of the classic grippers fit this shoe.
Our customers prefer either the Tournament Gripper or -a little bit more expensive- the BalancePlus Gripper.
The Tournament Gripper can be used for both sides.
BalancePlus offers a special BalancePlus Gripper right or -for the very stylish ones among you- BalancePlus Gripper pink.
Classic anti-slider or BalancePlus gripper pods?Pods have less weight and are easier to carry and -let's be honest- are somehow cooler.
Classic grippers are easier to put on and one is used to them.

How do I find the right shoe size?
How to find my shoe size
There a many systems to measure shoe sizes and that makes it irritating.
These points help in understanding how they work
- shoe sizes are not exact lenghts but rather segments between 1 and 2 cms depending on the system
- for curling shoes look for US M (Athl.) and US W (Athl.)
In the graphics below its the lines with the blue border
- if a curling shoe has inlays, it is more flexible in terms of fitting
- if in doubt always go for the larger size
- shoe shops offer different inlay sole which help you fit
- winter socks need room too
- if a shoe model is reported by our customers a too big or too small, you will find that in the text of the shoe.
The same goes the other way round: if you dont find a remark in the product text, we havent heard anything about misfits.
