This is the most advanced flip shoe ever designed. This shoe has it all-- Extremely heavy tips, a narrow but effective ringer breaker and a lower/flatter rear thumb cleat for truly "E-Z " flipping! Hence its name: "E-Z Flip"! There is another version of this shoe called the E-Z Flip II (the same shoe without the pointed ringer break). The most unique feature on this shoe is the narrow ringer break. It is so narrow that it comfortably slips right between your fingers even if you have a small hand... perfect for the center grip of the flip pitcher! When pitching this shoe, the tips are weighted so heavily, that it should feel like it is pulling out of your hand and beginning its flip before you let it go-- It should practically flip by itself with almost no effort. This shoe features a squarer shape instead of a curve, allowing for a wider gripping area. This gives the pitcher more room to adjust their grip, like turn throwers have along the blade of the shoe-- a unique advancement in flip shoe design. The edges of each shoe are smooth and nicely rounded, allowing the shoe to "pull" out of your hand with ease. This also helps reduce fatigue and blistering, which is common when using sharper edged shoes.
