The ELITE Sculling Shoe - $89.00
The lightest, best-fitting rowing shoe available - period. Scullers asked for a shoe that is fully stitched, more comfortable, and lighter with two-strap fastening and a great color. Mission accomplished. The H2row ELITE Sculler combines a neoprene core for great fit with a leather forefoot and heel for durability. Cutouts provide more ventilation. Our 3/4-length molded sole fully stitched to the insole combines with an enhanced heel counter to provide maximum boat feel and control. Much lighter than the expensive shoes from those other guys, the ELITE Sculler costs just $89.00. Available in U.S. men's sizes 8 to 14.
Why a Different Shoe for Sculling (Symmetrical vs. Asymmetrical)?
The forces on a sculling footboard can be very different than those of a sweep boat. Standard H2row shoes are designed to resist the lateral forces common in sweep rowing. The ELITE Sculler sole is designed to provide enhanced feel to the scullers who use their feet on the recovery to subtly prepare the boat for the next stroke.
Who Should Buy These?
These are recommended for rowers who are putting shoes in a boat that they row exclusively and looking for improved performance and comfort.
Who Shouldn't Buy These?
If you will have people of different foot sizes rowing your shell, stick with the standard shoe. Might I suggest our 2-strap model?
