Sports shoe, for example for skating or downhill skiing, having a zone on the inner side (ZI) and a zone on the outer side (ZE) relative to the longitudinal centre plane (M) , in which the leg-piece (20) is arranged overlapping a part (12) of the shell (10) which extends upwards and this part (12) has, joined to it, adjustable hinging means (52, 53) which define an axis about which the leg-piece (20) is able to perform a flexing movement of controlled amplitude along the centre plane (M) , characterized in that each of the said overlapping zones (ZI, ZE) o the outer surfaces o,f the leg-piece (20) are provided with means (42,41;. 47) for allowing selective insertion and subsequent locking of at least one of the hinging means (52, 53) in any one of the matching seats (33, 34, 35, 36; 37; 34', 36') provided on the said upwardly extending part (12) of the shell (10) so that, as required by the user, the said hinging axis may assume at least two different angular positions (XI, X2, X3, X4) relative to the centre plane (M) .
2. Sports shoe according to Claim 1, characterized in that the hinging means (52, 53) are elongated bodies designed to be inserted, from the outside, into through-openings (44, 46, 43) provided on rigid insertion plates (42, 41; 47), each of which is able to assume at least two different positions on the outer surface of the leg-piece (20) and the ends of which are engageable in one of the matching seats (33, 34, 35, 36; 37) provided on the said part (12) of the shell (10) .
3. Sports shoe according to Claim 2, characterized in that the said rigid insertion plates (41, 42) are designed to assume at least two angularly spaced positions on the outer surface of the leg-piece

(20).
4. Sports shoe according to Claim 2, characterized in that the said rigid insertion plates

(41, 42; 47) are designed to assume at least two linearly spaced positions on the outer surface of the leg-piece 20.
5. Sports shoe according to Claim 4, characterized in that, when the said rigid insertion plates (47) are designed to assume at least two linearly spaced positions along the vertical on the outer surface of the leg-piece (20) , adjustment of the "canting" is also possible,
6. Sports shoe according to any one of the preceding claims, characterized in that the said hinging means are screws (51, 52, 53) and in that their end part is designed to engage in threaded openings

(34, 36, 33, 35; 37, 39; 34', 36') fixed to the said upwardly extending part (12) of the shell (10) .
7. Sports shoe according to Claim 6, characterized in that the said threaded openings (33, 35, 34, 36; 34', 36') are provided on rigid plates (31, 32; 37) fixed to the said upwardly extending part (12) of the shell (10) .
8. Sports shoe according to Claim 6, characterized in that the said threaded openings consist of flanged and threaded bushes (37) fixed to the said upwardly projecting part (12) of the shell (10).
