Meet the latest Remz weapon, a classy and stylish update of the acclaimed 2.0, the New Chris Haffey Signature 2.1
Along with conceiving the low-cut skin design pioneered on the 2.0 and matching his own “V-cut + strap” setup, Chris Haffey personally put a multitude of samples through the test to meet his high technical expectations.
The new 2.1 is updated with new skin materials and stronger eyelets, combines a modern yet classic color scheme reminiscent of the 2000 Remedyz (when Chris first started rocking Remz), and includes all the advanced features that made the 2.0 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.
As a reflection of Chris Haffey who recently took the title of World Champion (with the 2.1 on his feet), his New 2.1 signature model is a winner and might well make you a better skater!

During May and June this year, Australian audiences were lucky enough to be the first in the world to witness the biggest travelling stunt show this generation’s ever seen, Nitro Circus Live.
Playing in 10,000+ capacity venues in capital cities around the country over several weeks with sell-out shows and extra performances added at most stops, the tour was a massive success and is set to hit the USA and Europe later this year.
Featuring big motocross ramps, and a megaramp with a padded rubber landing, and a phenomenal line-up of freestyle motocross riders, BMXers, 2 skateboarders, a guy doing flips on his pogo stick, a dude on a scooter, a dude in a wheelchair, and none other than Chris Haffey as the sole inline skater in the tour, Nitro Circus showcased THE biggest stunts in the world of action sports, performed on a nightly basis.
Double front-flips on a BMX and the world’s first quadruple tailwhip, double backflips and body varials on motorcross, backflips on a skateboard, attempted DOUBLE backflip on a wheelchair over the megaramp, and a double flatspin 900 by Mr Haffey, were amongst the incredible tricks that went down.
Chris was nice enough to do a little Q&A on his Nitro experience in Australia. Text and interview by Chris Pullar.
Chris Haffey’s second Jug pro shoe is made of the finest materials money can buy: Genuine Nubuck leather on the upper, soft pig skin on the inside, high rebound PU material for the insole and a wear resistant rubber for the outsole is setting the bar for sneakers a few notches higher.
The Haffey LT features waxed laces with metal tips, a second pair of black laces in the box and an image of Chris’s tattoo on the insole.

“We just couldn’t stop after the good times on our last Euro tour after the Clash, too much fun with everyone all throughout Germany, Holland, Belgium and France. So here we are, back home after Bittercold, deciding to tour our own backyard: Cali!”
