Jackson has recently released new boots. Some of the boot prices have gone up while several of the mainstays in their line have either stayed the same or gone down in price. See our boot and blade store for more information. We were hoping Jackson would bring back the Pro Flex boot but unfortunately that did not happen this year. As with just about all their boots come in white, tan, black, and suede. Their advance boots also come in 4 stiffnesses for the DJ3300, DJ3900, and the DJ3902. They also have dance boot and dance blades available as well. If you’re searching for something specific don’t hesitate to let us know!

One of the things we noticed right off the bat was with Jackson Matrix 2 blades. You can now get the runner carriage in several distinctive colors. What color are you?
