Beginner shoes!

Hi everyone! I bought an x pole back in 2013 and then life happened. I'm setting it up again and would like to know if for my first pair of shoes I should get boots or regular clear 7 inches? I see a lot of you with boots, do they stick more? I walk in heels more than flat shoes would height even matter?
Thank you so much!

Welcome back to pole! The clear ones are fine, but they do tend to be heaver than solid or chrome heels. 7 inches is a good height. Boots do have grip too them IF they're glossy, not mat or suede.

You've probably already bought your shoes but I wanted to add, matte leather does grip a little bit. Boots support the ankle more too.
I personally like clear heels because I feel the texture is more robust, the colour doesn't chip off. But I only have one pair of solid sandals (I feel I have to be more careful with them though)
