First spotted on September 2012, here are the USD Carbon III Franky Morales.
Franky Morales loves the USD Carbons, and Franky Morales loves his sneaker collection.
When given the opportunity to create a pro skate to his own specifications, he choosed to mix a pair of his favourite sneakers with a pair of USD Carbon 3′s.
Franky has always stood out for his trademark style, and these skates underline that – they will not go unnoticed!

Showing how to strip your Deshi / USD Carbons to the bare carbon shells then rebuilding them to have your own skins, cuffs and liners.
Everyone is into modifying their skates in one way or another, we’ve seen a few of our riders and customers switch out liners for a bigger liner in a smaller shell.
Whether it’s for looks or performance, it benefits the skater’s experience while out blading. Geoff is in a weird spot, a limbo somewhere between the 6-7 shell and the 8-9 shell, but a simple size 8 liner in a 7 shell doesn’t offer quite as much room as he would like.
Here is his solution. The SL shell offers easy access to the toe box when you remove the soulframe, allowing for an easy modification and added toe room. Blade-ED.

Heel Cutting Nimh Skates
This is a video demonstrating the process of heel cutting a pair of Nimh skates followed by a short edit testing the skates my rail.
Heel cutting your shells provides more room to size down to a smaller shell without comprising the structural integrity of the shell. Cutting the heels allows your foot to move further back into the shell and sit more centered over the frame, improving balance and overall control while reducing heel lift.
