Bend your knees, not your ankles. Get low. Put your head down and own the forecheck. When you take your skates off after a game, you feel like a fish out of water. You were born to skate. Not having any skates on feels like the wheels have come off. Regain your stride with the Great Stride Sandals. They may not be skates but they can get you back into that comfort zone of being on top of your game, even if that game isnt hockey.
