Valo Designer Boot

Valo limited edition skates

If you’ve happened to miss the addition of Valo to the rollerblading industry, maybe you should start to take notice. We contacted Jon Julio about the upcoming release of some limited edition designer Valo skates. Read about what Jon has to say about these new limited edition skates and maybe glimpse into the future and see how Valo could step up the skate game.

E : What has inspired the move to make a limited edition valo skate?what do you think sets the valo limited editions apart from other limited edition skate products?

Valo : A lot of inspiration comes from the shoe market..Making limited colorways and designs keeps things fresh and exclusive..After the “Fashion” TV.1 comes out ,you will see us taking limited edition models into a new direction…We do it our way and that’s what keeps us apart from the other products out there..

E : What steps were involved with designing the overboot and who designed it.

Valo : The original tv.1 was designed by the original Valo team,but the limited edition FASHION TV.1 was a sample designed from one of our main designers in Italy. Once we got a photo we posted it on the internet to get a response..and since our very 1st post we have had nothing but positive reactions..we are very excited to offer this model.. Definitely collectors items. Im actually keeping 2 models for myself..cause I know we wont make them anymore..

Valo Skates at Inline Warehouse

Czechoslovakia, Cradle of Inline Skates

Saturday, April 15th, 2006

first inline skates ever

These skates comes from an old man which is 77 yrs old and he skated on this when he was about 20yrs. It’s a “between wars” product from Czechoslovakia ! It seems that USA is not the cradle of inline skates.

Spotted by dani13, Thanks Man.

koubis note : it seems that inline skates are way much older, there were already inline skates in 1869 (check this page). But we don’t have photos, so yes those must be some of the oldest inline skates ever shot ;)

K2 Website Updated, well sort of…

Tuesday, April 11th, 2006

K2 updated their website : Great News ! Well not really, first where are the aggressive skates ? not a word about the team, nothing… Where are the Yasutoko Skates, Ben Weiss ?

Oh i found some aggressive skates there ! The concept is a bit wierd : you have the Soul Series where you will find the K2 Fatty pro Skates next to … fitness skates. -Not comments-

Well at least there is a photo of a Rollerblader. I’m not sure that everybody will understand what this is about (hmm ? a man standing on a rail with Inlines Skates on ? Wierd)

Someone is selling a very rare collector item on ebay (i like how people do exagerate their titles when they need to sell something), check the description :

Never worn but slightly shop soiled very rare collectable aggressive rollers blades. Size 5 uk.

Made by once upon a time skates. Poppy model, 88a 57mm wheels. First brought out in 1996.

A must for any skate enthusiast 0r collector. Probably the only pair left in england (koubis note : haha ok). Bid now to avoid disappointment !!!

- Check the Poppy Bid on Ebay | Thanks Dreadnought
- Discuss about it in the forums.

Connaitres ses racines !

Iamu a poste un topic interessant dans les forums francais :

Je pensais qu’un petit post sur l’histoire de notre etat d’esprit, ‘ce que represente le roller’, serait bien pour “eduquer” ( a ne pas prendre dans le mauvais sens du terme) la jeune generation. Histoire de ne pas oublier d’ou l’on vient… Postez ici toutes vos infos oldschool et autres photos..

Decouvez les images des premiers modeles de Remz, Razor, le Poppy et quelques details croustillants sur l’epoque baggy et bien plus… Bref tout ce qui a contribue a faire ce qu’est le roller aggressif de nos jours ! Voir le topic.

Coincidence, une photo du skate Poppy a ete poste dans le topic (merci chapeux!) et sur ebay, ou une personne vend un poppy neuf !
