Razer horseshoes were designed with health AND performance in mind. There are several key differences between Razer shoes and traditional horseshoes. 

1. Traditional horseshoes don’t allow natural hoof movement, Razer shoes do.

Because of this bare foot movement, there is reduced strain on limbs and joints, as well as increased balance and confidence due to the foot’s ability to remain flat on uneven surfaces.

2. Razer shoes feature a unique pattern for enhanced traction.

3. Traditional steel shoes are heavy, Razers are much lighter and stronger.

Due to their design, Razer shoes are about half the weight of a traditional steel shoe and similar in weight to an aluminum shoe. Despite being thinner, they wear the same length as a normal steel shoe because they are crafted with tool steel.

4. Razer shoes help distribute weight, unlike traditional shoes which elevate the hoof and place weight on the hoof wall.

The low profile of Razer shoes provides more natural frog and sole contact. This helps distribute the horse’s body weight across the entire hoof, as it would if barefoot.
