One day i sat down and started fooling about with some parts and came up with this.
The buckle is only on one side but it doesnt matter, because you do the strap on the inside of the boot as tight as u want 1st, and then you do up the double buckle. It is tightened with the bolt that holds the straps together, if you want to try this (you probably wont) its kinda hard work ad u need to rele push the bolt in to catch the thread. […]
^ Airwalk Skates
quoting George Amos :
Same Bauer mold used by Anarchy for their Chaos skates.
Fine, theyâ€™re cheap and theyâ€™re not intruding on existing markets, but do we really want to get the next generation of rollers started on skates of this quality?

Thanks Nemoz !
quoting Hifo :
Many of you are going to say “What is wrong with them, we don’t need more skating companies”. We need more money put into existing ones”.
Well this might not be a bad thing. They are priced at a $59.99, which is pretty cheap compared to $139.99 – $314.99. This isn’t going to scare off too many parents at the sight of the price. Who knows this might be a nice thing.
It seems that Airwalk is now producing Aggressive Skates.
Discuss about it in the forums. Thanks Hifo.
from Rachard Johnson :
If you ride legacy skates and are waiting for the full plate, it will be out soon, they have been shipped…
In the mean time if you have extra royal pieces, you can customize them by cutting them and fitting them into the gaps of the royal… trust me it works a whole lot better…
Thanks Bald_gye !
Xsjalomons, Xsjado / Salomon Concept,
using a Salomon Vinny Minton 2 Boot.
Me and my mate were bored as poo one day when it was raining so we decided to make these…
Basically they are salomon skates with the top of the boot cut off, the cuff v cut and cut into the xsjado cuff shape, a tongue put on the buckle, a like velcro/metal thingy off sum crappy sk8s trapped underneath the frame for the instep thingy and sum random elastic for the toe strap.
this started off as just a joke, but now im sk8in em instead of my TRS alphas bcos theyre so good.
More details and photos in this topic. Thanks Hobo !
