We recently had a customer seeking help with finding a toe stop to help with changing over to a jam plug next. It can be a tricky transition, if you are used to having a toe stop there…then it is not there. I have face planted from that, I mean…I know a skater that face planted from that.
Back to toe stops. We recently lined up all the different stops and plugs to find which one would be the best to recommend.
We highly recommend the Snyder toe stops, size small. That is the one pictured above. Once that feels more natural then make the change to the VNLA Jam plugs. That should help with the transition and get you used to having less to support you at the front of the skates. You can see those stops compared to other larger toe stops in the picture below too. It is the stopper in the lower left side.
