Quit bitching about razors doing the same thing over and over, every single company releases the same skates in different colors, its called marketing, do you expect them to make a new mold every month? Use your brain. These new soul plates look tight as fuck and its good to see razors making a price point blade with a good soul plate system and a well-deserving blader like Fabio repping them.
You rollernews fucks make me sick. You are always calling for razors/usd to do something new, yet when they do, you moan. This is a pretty big update to the cult boot. You do not need a new boot mould every ten seconds, how different can a skate be!
Epic fail, looks terrible, Enes deserves a much better skate
These sliders looks weird, the color scheme is more of the same (c’mon if you will use an old mod at least use a diferent base color or put a damn skin on it), poor typography made for kids, the adhesive stick back on the cuff was not well applied and what is these extra holes for double laces? Seems to be unfinished…
I liked the idea to use the cult mod but razors can be more creative than that
You people bitching and moaning about creativity, but sound like a bunch of old people bitching about change. Until you actually touch, and ride the skate, shut the fuck up. Razors gives you a bit of change, and you shoot it down.
Razors have always been about performance and durability. These blades def look durable and I’m sure the performance has been enhanced quite a bit.
You can clearly see the royale groove is deeper. Those souls look a bit bulked up too and more rounded. (Perhaps for cess slides and/or longer life?)
Wait until a video review or introduction before you go talking nonsense just because it has green laces and a cult boot. (SSM is a cult boot, all they do is change the skin.) what’s the difference? If it’s not broke, don’t fix it.
Well in my opinion, and you should care, its a cool skate they should just, not do green lace have them, slow down with the graphic on the back put a brazilian flag or something. and that would be a skate
People who’ll never get a signed boot complaining about design shit.
You want your new revolutionary design boot, with your name on it?
Build your on company (Y)
You still have to ride Razors, USD, or whatever.
So shut the fuck up!
None of you knows how’s difficult to be a rollerblader in Brazil, and we have now two brothers with signed skates for razors. That’s all that matters.
They have been skating since they were just kids, and now they’re dream finally came true. THAT’S THE IMPORTANT THING ABOUT SIGNATURE SKATES. It was made for him, not for you bastards.
Congrats Fabinho, and come back to Belo Horizonte!
I find it interesting haha
It’s kind of like the Jon Elliot shells with fatter new age souls.
Hey man I’d like to try them out because Superflat 2′s
were my first aggressive skate and I loved those shells growing up!
Id skate them. I love the cult boot. Just bought a pair of shima 2s but cant skate them due to the fram bolts stabing me. This new soul might fix that. If you have skated for more than 5-6 years you probably skated these and know how good the are.
Well I think they’re sick even though they’re not SL’s.
All you kids need to get back to your roots and realise that skates that were designed 10-15 yrs still function.
The new soul design looks to be an improvement and if you are bitching about the colourway go buy yourself a $1 permanent marker and colour in the green and yellow.
That’s what i’ll be doing because a ninja price point skate is what i’ve been searching for quite a while and the bonus being its a cult boot with GC frames and a solid liner…
Congrats to Fabio has been repping for a long time now and well deserved….
I think we as the body of supporters ought to have a little more mental control to inspire our industry leaders with our constructive criticism and gratitude. At the end of the day, they are building this thing with us, not imposing it on us.
Skate formulas that look good and work well don’t need to change. We seem to forget that, ideally, we are able to reach out to new blood, and for those new skaters, there need to be skates. People getting into the game will be reaching for the new stuff fresh from our companies, so we should give props to our companies to finding the new colors and presentations they use to keep products as fresh as possible. New molds cost thousands to manufacture, and we all know the money’s just not always there, so be grateful for the freshness we are fortunate to have.
We ought to foster the newbies and the up and comers, and demonstrate the richness of the blading culture – we truly do have a common uniqueness that binds us, transcendent of so many societal boundaries. How many little kids who could be the next Chris Haffey would be inspired by the way we treat the brands working to keep us booted up?
they are recycling the old classic boot style and updating the cuff and soul plates to match the newer SL style soul plates they have.
good looking out. because now these plates are now compatible with…
any SSM boots ( slight size and modifications needed). and also any of the existing classic style cult boots out there.
shima 3, cults 1-9 i think??, the esco zoos, the blue flats!
the list goes on and on for those lucky enough to own a few of them.
and can now customize these older generation skates to modern standards and also without having to create a new mold which has also been said before to cost a shit ton of money to make.
i know you groms are too young to remember how badass the cults were and how many skaters skated them back in the day.
but in those days the skate was regarded as one of the best skates out there and also one of the first blades to look closer to a sneaker. that is all the rage nowadays.
and finally fabio has been repping hard for so long its nice to see another international skater get his props!
i guess it all boils down to remaking the classics into something modern.
i just hope the new soul plates dont suck cause the classic cults wear out too damn fast!
never been a fan of razors, but at least they’re trying a little…
also, why would major skate brands WANT to spend time and money developing all new skates from scratch? they know the shit they got already works, usd classic thrones, razors cults, m12s, shits been around forever. but when they even TRY something, like usd legacy, we just talk shit and don’t buy the skates. why make new shit if people will always just go back to the old shit they know and trust? entire brands have been built JUST to use a tried and true boot as their base, nimh/ssm/valo. they don’t really just pop up with something amazingly new (besides xsjado) so stop getting your hopes up
im pretty down with these new boots. im thinking the souls shouldn’t be that tall. i know some people will cut them down. but the classic razors was one of the best skates out back in the day. of course evolution makes them now one of the most basic. but nothing beats a classic. congrats fabio. should have came out sooner.
Why da fuk iz razor giving him a cult???? Did he choose a cult? If that was his only choice I feel bad for him. I mean why iz the best skates like razor&remz cheating there riders outa so much money? And yes I said it. Razor&remz skate the best outa any skate on the market to date!
Yo seriously, the rollerblading community looks so fucking bad with all these idiots always talking shit. Just because we have the freedom of speech isn’t a free pass to spew negative criticism for pure shock value. Go look at all other sports blogs, and you never see the extent of negative feedback from their users. And plus top level skates in 2nd or 3rd world countries are way out of reach for the average persons budget. makes sense that his skate is a razor classic shell. And in case some you didn’t read it. It read, PROTOTYPE (the final skates won’t be released with the SL soulplate). Sooooo, stop complaining about the soulplates…. ah fuck it IDGAF anyways lol.
Definelly Fabio deserves it. But, in my opinion, razor might release a SL for him. Fabio is far better than some Razors Pro… but ok, he will shred with this one for sure! The haters can talk shit for ever, because is whatt they do, talk shit. They just can’t do anything else.
Parabéns Fabionho, agora VAMO TRABAIA! HAHAHAHA
Cola ae em Floripa quando estreiar o pro model!
