Meet the new spiced up version of Chris’ acclaimed Signature model, a true weapon in disguise, the Chris Haffey 2.2.
Along with conceiving the low-cut skin design pioneered on the 2.0 and matching his own “V-cut + strap” setup, Chris personally put a multitude of samples through the test to meet his high technical expectations.
This new Limited Edition 2.2 features a groovy colorway that is sure to turn heads and includes all the advanced features that made the 2.0 and 2.1 a top-seller such as the redesigned rear lacing system, the precise neoprene liner with softer shock-absorber, strong hockey laces giving the skate a distinctive and athletic look, and the new concept of High Resilience (HR) construction providing optimum control & foot support.
“It sucks your foot in there and keeps it right where it needs to be so you’re in complete control at all times” says Chris about the Remz HR concept that he helped develop.

Update: a part of the video was featured on Win Blog. This news was originally posted in February 2010.
Chris was recently featured on a “fake or real?” type of show on Pro Sieben (German TV).
They saw his infamous 666-rail clip on Youtube (originally from Lonnie Gallego’s video NOISE) and went all the way to Los Angeles so Chris could prove he could do it again.
A full translated transcript of the video is available here (check the description). Thanks Al Dolega & Meatlove.
