PROTECTS leather from the usual unavoidable scratches, scrapes and scuffs of skating caused by falls, lunges, partners, precision, etc. It's WATERPROOF, preventing boot damage and rotting from moisture. SK8TAPE® STAYS ON for months when skating, yet it can be EASILY REMOVED only when you want it removed. NO STICKY RESIDUE is left behind, unlike other tapes, and it STRETCHES to fit securely around the curves on boots. SK8TAPE ® is INCONSPICUOUS and is excellent for all competitions, giving skates a CLEAN, BRIGHT SHINE that no polish can provide!
