Straight Toe Shoe (STS) with Grid Sole
DISCONTINUED: SOLD AS A PAIR WITH NO RETURNS
The straight toe shoe with a grid sole is the newest addition to the Duplo Composite Horseshoe line available in sizes 118 mm -134 mm. The STS shoe presents like a squared toe horseshoe compared to the basic round shape. The toe bevel is pre fabricated into the shoe mold reducing additional modification to the shoe. The grid sole offers more sole protection and aids in supporting packing material. The squared toe horseshoe reduces leverage in the break over. Sole impression material works well with this shoe. Other means of pour in packing will work too.

- Beveled toe.
- Grid allows for easier packing material placement.
- Price to performance ratio makes the shoes cost effective.
Modification of the STS Grid Sole:

- Grinding or nipper and rasp to shape the plastic in the back of the shoe.

The STS with grid sole is used for prevention of pathology, therapeutic settings, and where more leverage reduction is needed. The STS with grid sole can be applied with nails or glue on tabs and because of the clips less nails are needed. The hoof wall is first notched out for the clip and then hammered into the hoof to set the clip. Consequently there is no hot fitting the shoe!
