Jug liners received a complete makeover in the new Black Sox liner. Highlight is a new dual density foam which consists of a high density EVA foam on the outside which provides support and distributes stress over a wider area.
A softer inner PU foam adapts to the contours of your foot enhancing fit and comfort. The padding of the tongue was increased to almost 1” and it comes with a removable tongue insert which in a hidden pocket. New is also a V-shape elastic insert in the back which provides flex if skated with V-cut cuffs.
Unchanged is the high rebound shock absorbing insole, Velcro closure in the tongue to prevent shifting and the articulated ankle shape which keeps your foot locked in.
I have fun filming with Lonnie Gallegos for Many Reasons. One is that I grew up about half way through the 90’s with him and have been friends ever since. Another reason is he he is a great filmer, editor, director, etc.
So you only have to focus your energy on what your doing and not worrying if the shot is going to be good. And another reason, is he puts up with me when I take too long to do something. Thanks Lonnie.
Here is the edit that Lonnie filmed and edited of 3 sunny days of blading in good ol’ southern california. I have been having THE funnest sessions with Lonnie, John Starr, Mike McMullen, and even Ryan Northway.
Having a crew of oldschool dudes to really have a session with is a rareity for me these days so I have the utmost appreciation for the vibe that is created when we all get together.
