Wearing proper footwear is something which is often overlooked (especially in the beginning). Not only can it give you more stability, sometimes it’s also your brake.


It might sound stupid, but tighten your laces. You don’t want them to get caught in a wheel or something, or a shoe flying of your feet during a crash/roll on the pavement.

Brake soles

If you start going fast, the soles on your shoes wear off quickly, which street lugers experience quickly. To prevent this you can glue brake soles to your shoes.

These brake soles can be bought or you can cut them yourself from an old car/moped tire.
