Wednesday, November 21st, 2012

First spotted on September 2012, here are the USD Carbon III Franky Morales.

USD Carbon III, Franky Morales Custom Setup

Franky Morales loves the USD Carbons, and Franky Morales loves his sneaker collection.

When given the opportunity to create a pro skate to his own specifications, he choosed to mix a pair of his favourite sneakers with a pair of USD Carbon 3′s.

Franky has always stood out for his trademark style, and these skates underline that – they will not go unnoticed!

Xsjado 2.0 First Impression Review

Saturday, November 17th, 2012

Xsjado 2.0

From everything I’ve heard, read and seen it seemed like Xsjado “fixed” all the little things I disliked about the original Xsjados with the 2.0.

I skated the Latimer 2s and the Farmer 1s as well as a few of the early Conference models. After that I gave up because of the low quality parts that came with these skates.

Now we have “A cuff with cuff bolts means they will finally have some forward flex”. “An XS soul plate means they will actually fit my feet”.

These two improvements were enough to make me pay close attention. My expectations were high and I was not let down.

From genuine leather to even more options to change the way these fit, feel and skate I think Xsjado has really changed a skate that was already unique and great to something that has something for everyone and a quality that can compete with the original Salomon made Xsjados. [...]

Thanks Justin. If you are into Gameboy mods, check

Roces Majestic 13

Roces Majestic 13

Quoting Zecoprzepraszam:

For some time we heard rumours that Roces is making their own powerblading skate.

I had hard time imagining how it would look like, as Roces basically haven’t developed any new aggressive boot in years, not to mention their freeskates, which are direct follow-up to models introduced in late nineties (for example, newest Roces Metropolis is only a slightly upgraded Roces ASP skate).

I was worried that they’ll simply put generic UFS frame on M12 UFS and call it a day. And… I was right. Ladies and Gentlemen, I’m introducing you “new” Roces Majestic 13 skate.
