I secretly hope this is the inner boot and what they will really come up with is a custom rigid plastic structure you can change and replace for ever, no even better, you can mould yourself ! But hey, I think it’s just me dreaming anyways..
I will wait till they make an official announcement with real photos and proper edits to judge this, new companies and new creative stuff never are a bad point for our industry.
It’s good that new a company is starting, and I wish them the best of luck because it costs a lot to just make a prototype.
But you’ve got to get the Promo shot right. This material needs to be ironed and stitched consistently. If you’re going for a low profile design, you’ve got to make sure that all the basic features are perfect. I like the shape of the boot, but the first thing on everyone’s mind is durability.
Definitely get these things sorted before you run the promo shot!
I’m curious as to what these things are? I mean what are they even made out of? Whatever, yeah they look strange, and they’re probably not gonna stick around for long, but there are new companies being started. So this means that there’s a good amount of people who care about skating. So fuck it, I welcome new skate ideas, lets see what you got?
Toms!! ha. Funny shit. Wait for this skate company coming out with a all new concept. You get high while getting high air. It’s called crack feign straight outta DC. shit gonna be gravy son. First three models coming soon are called 8 ball, yayo, and tyrone biggums. Comes with the new all power white bake frames with paul john’s scribe wheels.oh and comes with a free house arrest gps ankle braclet for the buckle area. Cook it up.
Hot dog we have a weiner you are correct bottom line, after trying many materials we have settled on a highly rigid fabric for our boot, and yes what you are seeing is merely a cover, they will be coming boot only at the moment but we are working on getting youth co on board
Okay, if they actually use a durable material then it’s cool, but sure doesn’t look like it. Aesthetically they don’t appeal to me. Maybe they’ll look better in edits. My main concern would be pricing: if it’s low enough to be made accesible to kids from low-income families, great. Not much point otherwise.
Sorry but this is a “oso” bad idea. At least make it look good. Then change your name to something that can’t be easily made fun of. Like naming your child moonbeam or your skate company oso. Hell kore is a better name and you both look the same. Only way this wins is if its like android apps….. free
What?! Why?! they look like fcking Origami!? Or karate slippers or some shit. Plus guys, having more boot companies is not that great. I think we have just enough. any more and then we start to potentially dilute the already minimal potential sales. Same with wheels. WAAAAAAAYYYY too many wheel manufacturers.
Calling this a prototype is a cheap excuse for having a bad idea.
I understand this is not the full product, but a model should at least resemble in some form the later outcome…if this is already the case I’d say with much certainty that this is shooting itself in the foot…and Kevlar is not gonna help either!
another thing: The quality of the model, the logo typography and the fact that they release a photo at this stage to public a new thing tells me they haven’t done their homework…let’s have a quick look at the website…ok…nothing to see…so let’s just all pretend this never happened
Roller news is the worst place to show some half-assed, unfinished products. It will get clowned to all hell. Just hold your horses and give up the goods when it’s ready. I say that because there is no way this skate would sell looking like it does, so I hope it’s a prototype. Give some info, and something remotely done. And the soul plate needs work, I know some skaters like the minimal soul, but this is pretty skimpy. Props for starting your own shit though, it’s good to see. Good luck.
