This is definitely the only curling shoe designed by an Italian fashion designer. High quality leather and suede combine to create a sleek look that would catch the eye even off the ice, which is what this shoe was originally designed for. The flexible suede toe will allow you to feel the ice with your trailing foot, but it could cause a bit of drag. This is one potential drawback of using a shoe that was not designed with curling in mind. The materials are also more breathable than a typical curling shoe, which could be a problem if you get cold feet on the ice. Overall, this shoe seems to be a bit more style than substance.
