The ELITE Sculling Shoe
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. About a pound lighter than the expensive shoes from those other guys, the ELITE Sculler costs just $89.00. Available in U.S. men's sizes 6 to 12. (size 13&14 temporarily out of stock - available in May)
Why a Different Shoe for Sculling (Symmetrical vs. Asymmetrical)?
Sculling forces are different than those of a sweep boat. H2row Classic shoes are designed to resist 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?
Recommended for rowers putting shoes in a boat that they row exclusively who are looking for improved performance and comfort.
Who Shouldn't Buy These?
If you have people of different foot sizes rowing your shell, or store your boat outside - try our 2-strap model instead.
