You've probably noticed that when you get a new pair of skate shoes, you suddenly suck at skating. It's like you instantly lose months of practice. Tricks that you could land the day before you blew out your favorite kicks are suddenly impossible. What causes this? And is there anything you can do about it??
Luke, a reader, wrote in and asked me about this. He wrote, "I haven't been able to ollie down curbs/stairs properly ever since i got new skate shoes would you happen to know the reason why?"
You're not alone, Luke! Read more about this problem and how it works!
