Wait… are these just the cults titled shiftys? If so, that makes no sense and I’ll still be calling them the cults, but there’s something about them that seems different.. I can’t put my finger on it. Is the cuff different? Is the boot different? Am i just being fooled by the new rounded web2.0 style font and icon? Anyways, I’m confused, but I like them… more than the cults even… if that makes sense…
Ain’t shit changed. To think that a company like razor has such little respect for the people that have been keeping them in business, The shifty/Royale are the cults with two tone soul. same ol’ shit from a shit company. So lets see The cults have been named the Cults, creams, elliotts, Shimas, Shifty, Shitty idea guys. Just bring out the “New” aragon boot design, it’s the only way to save your company.
Nick said it!!! this is exactly that kind of shit i hate to see in rolling… its like raping customers brain so he will think changing the colors will actually improve skate’s performance so he can BUY IT FOR MORE MONEY stupid assholes its the only thing theyre after
whats wrong with you people? w/e you call them cults are cheap good skates. razors should bring back the soft top shells cuz they look better. anyways dont hate on the skate no ones putting a gun to your head to buy them. they’er great for people that dont want to pay 3 bills for skates your going to fuck up anyways.
You guys got it all wrong. You’re calling it the Cults, but it goes even further than that. They are the Flat’s and or Super Flats. They know kids love this style and razors is just sitting back collecting money. We need something new!!! I know NIMH is something new. That’s the start of some fresh blood.
hahaha oh yeah!!!!!! super flats thats right. yeah we need new stuff but the super flats can be to rollerblading what blank decks are to skateboarding. just sumthing cheap thats can get the job done. i think we need more skates like these in our sport. anything 150 and less like m12s, realms, and “cults” these skate will make it easier for people to start skating. if rolling makes its way back to the x games these will be the skates the nexted gen will pick up. then they’ll be hooked and bitch about how much razors suck. jk
I dont know who you kids are kidding, razors is still possibly the most popular brand in rollerblading. Regardless of whether or not they change anything they are still good ass affordable skates and tons of people will still buy them. what other company has actually changed anything in the past few years? TRS and they keep sucking anyway, Deshi but those got even worse until the CHs. Remz have made little modifications but nothing big after the 03ones, USD is continuously coming out with new shit and hey go figure, half of it isnt as good as the shit they already had at and barely anybody skates it. Razors are good enough already, if you want such a drastic change then buy another skate brand.
yh yh they been done before blah blah but visually the white ones are quite nice, shifty are a wheel compnay primarily and they actually make some ok wheels they are cheaper than big american brands and often last longer.
w/e i don’t skate this style of razors ne way i think they should go with the style of the shima 5′s y’kno the soft boot look
i think a black boot but keep the white bubble things white
idk i might try the cult style out u kno it’d b diff
i think it is fun to read all the hate mail razors get… they have one, if not the best skater on a pro model and everyone still yells at razors. i love it. pure entertainment. oh well, i skate xsjado’s now and well, they have to be the most comfortable skate i have ever put on my feet – and i have been skating 15 plus years. i am diggin them – however, i have never skated razor skates. i hear they are nice skates from the one’s i know who ride them.
y change something that clearly works? razors have been dominating for a long time, becasue of their simple designs, that’s y they keep bringing out simple designs, cos they work bla bla bla bla bla bla bla who cares…….. classic throne usd’s are the way to go
ps shifty is what us retard australians call a royale
wow seriously. these skates look pathetic. so much for a wasted unique collaboration skate. gimme a break shifty. so you had the chance to make an awesome skate, in an awesome colorway, but you chose an old non-ufs cult boot and called it black and white?
they’re actually the superflat boot with the elliot II backslide plate. in all honestly, i think someone just photoshopped the shifty logo on those skates. they’re not actually going to come out, razors doesn’t collaborate with small-time companies. either way, they own the rollerblading world.
i dont know if someone posted this already but bauer it think it was came out with a skate about 10 years ago called the shifty. it was what the royal was once called, before they touched the boot all the way down.
ok, to start with, alot of you guys clearly have no idea wat you talking about, a fair few do al admit, but not alot. To start with, the company ‘shifty’ as been goin for over 11 years, longer then most of you have skated, the company was called shifty because bac then, the ‘royale’ was known as a sick trick (good idea if you ask me), and razors, has been goin around the same length of time, so lets face it, these companies have been in rollerblading longer than most. Next, the cult, are the cheapest boot razors do, and most likely, the cheapest to manufacture (dont need a new mold, probably bearly need to actually mold many at all), so its not goin to cost razors much to do this, and no doubt the skate wont cost much wen it comes out, so its most likely goin to appeal the younger more beginner skaters, and the people that dont want, or cant spend a fortune on skates. so why start something with an expence boot when it might not even hit off, that would be stupid. i also have a big feeling these skates will only be sold around the u.k as shifty appeals to alot of rollerbladers around th u.k, so for you lot that have big mouths, if you dont like them, dont buy them, just shut up and let the people that like them skate them, because, lets face it, both these companies, big or small have been around longer than most of you have been skating.
well i dont care whatever you guys are saying. i like them! they look sick, especially the white ones. and im looking for somthing new to try and seeing as i havnt had the classic razors before, i might go for these…
They’re Ballin if you ask me, espicially the black ones! Their simple yet they look pretty sick. I would maybe put some different liners in their such as the new jug liners(in white) to make em look and skate better. other than that, they look sick
they have a different cuff, its not as wide at the top as a normal razor cuff. i got a pair a few weeks back skate good, but i made the error of getting a size nine and they only have two boot molds, one up to size 8 and one from size 9 – 13 so my pair sit over the frames by about an inch making look stupidly bigger then they are
i dont know if anyone has taken any notice but the main diff between these and the cults is these have xsjado frames (as stock) , it dunt show on the pic up there but they do wich is partly why they were called shifty… for those who dusnt understand heres a little math
My mate has these skates , ive skated them before , i dont like them atol , they have fuck all heel support or footsupport , their very loose to , and have no secure what so ever in your foot
buy valo’s :D
I think they are******* well mint the white ones are amazing.im defo gettin theese for christmas and like bob (older post) said shifty haave been goin on for about 12 years longer then most ov u have been skatin. if u like them get them and if u dont , well dont just dont critasize the people who actully like them. Ive been skatin for 6 years and ive been through deshi razor remz and usd.i have rachard johnsons atm and they are sooo smooth to skate.i love them and i love theese so if u gunna say summut bad about theese dont fkin say it
