The 265 boot has been designed by derby skaters and hand made in the USA and was the first boot specifically aimed at the roller derby market.
Hand sorted full grain leather upper.
HF-5 heat moldable outside quarter right boot.
DuoLock tongue stabiliser.
Hhand rolled collar.
Velcro cinch strap.
Stitched and cemented rubber outsoles.
They also lace to the toe which offers more adjustable room for feet and have an elastic-secured tongue. The 265's are durable and comfortable and come in a 'combo' fit- D/B which means a wider D width for the ball of your foot with a narrower B heel for a better fit for women.
These boots are soft toed and are meant to fit like a glove with the toes barely touching the front.
See the video below from Riedell for more info on the 265 boot.
