Best Shoes for the Job:
Kerckhaert Half Swedge

The half round-half swedge is the technical name for this shoe as the outer branch has the swedge (rim) and the inside branch is half round. This is most commonly used to help keep the path of the travel wider. It might also be used on the back of a Trotter that is speedy-cutting (interfering). It helps with pacers that crossfire (right hand hitting left front and visa versa).
