Hand Lasting: The Formula for SP-Teriís Famed Fit
What makes SP-Teri
the best fitting boot? Simple: the SP-Teri last designed by Joseph
Spiteri in 1963. Our last allows the skaterís foot to lay flat in
the boot for maximum comfort and control. And since 1963, the last
has been modified three times to keep step with the evolution of
the human foot.
SP-Teri has always realized that skaters need a boot that fits snugly
but not tightly. Thatís why-instead of a pointed toe which can cramp
the foot-our last is designed with a rounded toe box. It allows
the foot to get close to the end of the boots without squeezing
the second, third and fourth toes.
The arch of
SP-Teri boots has been redesigned to accommodate the lower arches
of todayís skaters. (Especially important for younger skaters whose
feet are still developing.)
heel pitch allows the skater to balance at the center of the blade.
A boot with a high heel shifts the skaterís weight to the toe picks,
and a low heel throws the weight back. Center balance on the blade
gives the skater ideal body position for shifting weight.
The heel in
the SP-Teri boots is designed narrow to hold the foot more securely.
And the back curve holds the heel in a snug position for jumping
control. A very narrow AAAAA heel width is available on special
to accurately conform the boot to the skaterís foot The original
