A Perfect Solution

Shape, process, grind and alter just as regular steelshoe. 6mm steel core.

A New Generation Rubber Shoe

This new generation Öllöv has a different forged steel core than previous versions. Now there’s not a big difference in how to shoe and process our rubber shoe and a regular steel shoe.

It doesn’t require any special tools, just make sure to deepen / countersink nails carefully with pritchel, bolt or such. For farriers that shoe a lot of Öllöv and want to make the clinching smoother we have an Öllöv clinger with a pin to make sure nails stay in place while clinching. Once you get used to working with it, it takes the almost the same time to shoe as regular shoes.

You can grind off rubber on sides without compromising the rest of the rubber and it is an advantage to remove some rubber from inside the clips for a tighter fit.

You are sure to appreciate how quiet it is to work with this rubber shoe and also notice how relaxed the horses are with the quiet shoeing.

Rubber Shell, Steel Core –
a Great Combination

The combination of rubber shell and steel core makes this shoe a very good choice for many types of horses. It dampens the maxload and the pattern of the rubber offers excellent grip on many surfaces including grass.

It’s absolutely outstanding for horses that are worked on any hard surface such as police-, carriage, and sport driving horses. The shoe absorbs shocks and vibrations. It is also widely popular for horses performing in various disciplines from jumping, dressage, eventing, endurance, and trotting racing.

The Öllöv rubber shoes have also been used extensively for over 20 years for horses in different rehab situations with excellent results. Horses suffering from laminitis, or returning from back, leg and hoof issues recover faster with Öllöv shoes. The new generation shoes will improve on this health legacy even further.

“Being a good farrier means constantly improving technically but also using best products and materials. Innovation towards comfort it’s the key to increase horses performance, Öllöv seems to have it all.”

Lasse Kärvestedt

Sweden Farrier

”During all my years as a farrier many of my customers have asked for innovation when it comes to horseshoes. Many products have come and gone over the years and I have always wanted to try myself and form my own opinion. So after 6 months of trying the Öllöv SoftStep on my own horses I started recommending them to clients and now after almost 2 years I am still convinced of the benefits of the shoe. It offers great grip and it feels like horses appreciate the shock-absorption.”

Martin Vögele

Farrier (Schmiedemeister, Hufbeschlagschmied, Huftechniker GdHK).

5th generation farrier in his family, has been working with alternative shoes since 1986 including titanium, aluminium, rubber and plastic shoes. Shoes exclusively with Öllöv shoes to all clients since 2003. Martin is the main designer behind the new Öllöv SoftStep and a key advisor.

”Before I came in contact with Öllöv in 1994, I tried to find always the best shoe for every single horse out of a huge range of shoes I carried with me. Starting shoeing Öllöv shows me that I keep a shoe in my hand which makes every horse happy! The only difference is I have to use other skills with the same tools! I had to arrange my daily work a little bit different, that’s it. And as I invented to use the reverse shod Öllöv to treat lame horses, especially in case of laminitis I found my personal determination. Lots of foundered horses found an easy way back to be sound again in the last 2 1/2 decades. I am proud to be an ambassador of one of the best horseshoes ever made.”

Morten Braendholen

Norway – Farrier since 25 years

“I shoe with Öllöv on more and more horses. The shoes simply make the horses a lot more comfortable and happier. Horseowners are very happy also, they feel that it is a different horse to ride and that they are providing a better shoe for the wellbeing of their horse. Öllöv shoes provide grip on all kinds of surfaces and great benefit that horses have a lot less dropped shoes.”
