No one makes boots like we do. Period.
Designed for the competitive skater who settles for nothing but the very best. Metcon boots are excellent for speed, derby, jam, fitness.
Metcon is short for the metabolic system. We named our Metcon in relation to how it provides excellent performance in so many disciplines; speed skating, jam, roller derby, fitness. Roller skating consists of many different movements. All different physical moves being made while skating. Clearly a great source of high intensity, both power spurts mixed with cardio.

Mota suggests wearing your boots 3-4 times prior heat molding.
All Mota boots can be heat molded multiple times.
Click here for spot molding: Spot molding requires a heat-gun (no a blow dyer) and can be done with your plates mounted. Alternative molding option is the oven.
Click here for oven molding: Oven molding you must follow instructions closes. You can do this with your plates mounted but MUST remove all the parts (trucks, stoppers, bushings, footbeds) prior to molding.
Flex-Fit Outsole | ABOUT
Exiting the traditional way of making quad boots was a personal requirement for founder, Doug Glass. Knowing the fact quad boots were made the same his entire life, the risks were high. However, with over 20 years of carbon fiber and nylon composite manufacturing experience it was a risk he was willing to take. His decision to introduce a new style of product with features not available through traditional manufacturing was easy.
Mr. Verducci and Doug Glass were the first to design a high-end nylon inline racing boot back in 1999. The goal was to have a boot that could perform like carbon but be much more cost effective. Even back then they could see the direction of inline racing and the problematic cost of high-end equipment increasing at a rapid rate. Unfortunately, they were unable to bring the product to market as planned due to a partnership fallout. Another brand picked up where they left off and still continue to successfully sell nylon inline race boots today. Over the course of the years it has become clear that nylon racing boots will never replace carbon at the very elite level. A few important reasons nylon will not outperform carbon for inline or ice speed boots is the rigidity, weight and mold-ability.
The most important lesson learned through inline development is – IF done correctly – Nylon composite outperforms carbon, fiberglass, leather or any other hand laid-up resin cloth materials as a quad/roller product. Quad boots are significantly different than an inline boot, it’s important to have lots of flex in the counters as to keep all 4 wheels on the ground at the same time while pushing through the turns. Your boot essentially remains up and down while your ankle needs to lean in the turns. It’s imperative to have counters that support but flex with you.
This is what makes Savage so unique. The upper wraps the foot like a glove, the one- piece outsole with built-in counters encompasses your foot while flexing to every move you make (Flex-Fit). With nylon unlike any other traditional quad boot we can control the counters and sole stiffness. Our soles are rigid but not so stiff they rattle your teeth and counters that flex with you out of the box and don’t breakdown. UNHEARD of in traditional design.
By having an external heel, we can make the soles thin, maximizing the perfect amount of sole flex and rigidity. Even more important is we were able to reduce weight significantly. Savage models are nearly as light as any carbon boot and in many cases just as light. Over 30% lighter than leather and most all traditional soled quad boots. As a bonus feature you can use no heel, 5MM, 7MM, 10MM, 12MM or 14MM heel. The standard is 7MM but it’s nice to have options (depending on application use / preference) without having to invest in another boot.
All our Savage models have unique built-in templates on the sole making mounting as easy and accurate as 1-2-3.
We believe some flex in the outsole is important to the overall performance of quad boots. Flex provides a smoother ride, easier to steer and returns energy compared to carbon fiber, hybrid or leather outsoles.
