Sure Grip Speed Skates. Speed skates are low top, low heel boots for two reasons - so you can bend at the ankle more and put more pressure on the heel of the boot. Pressure from the heel becomes forward motion and speed skates are made for forward motion. Speed boots can also be used for jam skating but, since there is no lace cover, not as well. Speed skates are often used for recreational skating indoors or out because they offer more ankle movement, less restrictive "support". Speed skates are rarely used for artistic, rollerdance skating. But for every possible usage of every possible skate there are always skaters who do it their own particular way.
