the shell is made 100% out Carbon and Kevlar.
Upper is 2,5mm real geniune leather, so the skate will also hold up longer than a standard plastic skate.
each size has its own mould and fit, to total control.
they are light as shit. me and james tried to put the size 6-7 vinny souls on and they were way too big.
the entire boot is carbon fiber, with the outer material stitched on. buckle is really low profile and is a new ratchet system.
when you look inside, it looks as if there is no liner, but the padding that is in there is so comfortable. and when you put your foot in and pull it out you can feel how the liner is “heat molding” to your foot.
Good, there not as wide as the CH’s. V-cut cuffs hurt the sides of my ankles. The CH’s seemed to run a half size small. 350 is pricey. The deshi symbol is on the top of the toe were it can’t rub off..yeah rep. Heavy metal buckles?Why? The toe looks perfect. Thinner soul plate(lighter skate). No weird crevises to get dirt cought in like the CH’s. They don’t look like remz cuz rems are plastic and weigh-way too much dumb asses. 8 out of 10 is my score. Good work guys!
Maaan cabon fiber you konw what you speaking about this material is the graal, light, strong, flexible ( but with form memory ) but it’s expensive to facture,the new bucle is very good (not the kind of things that’s goin to snap ) they light i’ve hold them in my hand at slam jam and i think their worth the price
Wow I can not get over how unbelievably stupid some of you guys are. rza, stifrontline, are you fucking seriouse??? There are no soul plates on that boot, holy sweet flying fuck are you guys mind numbingly dumb. This is a pic of the carbon fibre boot, there are no soul plates in the pictures at all. Stop huffing paint thinner. I heard Deshi is still in the making of a soul plate to fit these skates perfectly. And to everyone complaining about the price, look at these fucking things. No slip in liners, the liners are basically built into the skate like a shoe. So your even closer to the shell, no slipping around. These are pushing the technology within aggro blades by borrowing ideas from speed skating. They are half the weight of the lightest skates on the market. Basically lightest blades ever. And the materiels are hardcore. When you create a skate with quality like this, the price will go up. And for those of us bladers that actually have our fucking lives together and jobs, I’ll pay the little bit extra for a skate that is vastly supurior to any other. Great fucking work Deshi, 4 thumbs up!!!
ive had my pair for 8 months and there still going strong,there by far the best skate ive skated and its lasted longer than any skate ive skated..and there like 30 percent lighter than the standerd models. would recomend themcant wait to get my hands on another set :D
These skates look awesome and the price will be more because of the materials used to produce them. Makes me laugh that people are bithing about them already and they haven’t even come out yet. If they skate anything like my Carbon Speed boots that i use for Derby then they’ll be fucking amazing. Can’t wait to get em
kids woul pay a way over $350 for an entry level bmx. So you be gratefull that the best stuff in our industry is still less than some of the worst stuff other action sports have. And don’t get me started on fucking mountain biking.
Powerslide is trying to make us pay for the USD fuck up. They made almost zero cash of the USD unit over the last nine months because they wanted to change suppliers and botched the deal. Now they expect us to help fill the bucket. WTF!
comment for stupid SLEEZY SAYS if you had ever seen the soul plates for this boot you would think thin the same as me when you buy 350 dollar skates with skinny soul plates its just not worth the money and there’s no frame so you pay 400 skates i don’t know about you guys but i ride USD Rachard Johnson skates usd 4 life
The boot itself is sick, however if you look at the soulplate that goes with (revolutionskate) it there is no protection at all for that pretty white(kevlar,carbon,whatever) material. Im very interested in seeing a test of that skate on some ledges for a 3-4 hour session. I salute Deshi though for pushing the quality of skates up another notch.
the skates look sik, but when i tried them on the buckle was impossible to use, and the built in liner (or whatever you want to call it) was ssssooooo uncomfortable, i was really looking forward to these skates, but they are even more uncomfortable than the origional deshis.
