Sebastian Scholz made some custom snowblades with his Xsjado skates, here the test in video!
Ivo from This Is Soul skateshop in Amsterdam bought some deadstock, mint condition Salomon ST90 2 from some seedy corner of the internet and since I used to own a couple of pairs of Salomons and remembered how comfortable they were, I needed to get my grubby paws in them quickly.
One thing I remembered as well was that the grinding was not my favourite part of skating them. The decision to use Adapt Symetrics Soulplates was easy, since Toe Bee had already done the research on several pairs of Salos himself, and was willing to share what little he knew.
So off to Beer Hendrik’s workshop I went. Feeling guilty that he was doing most of the work I decided to film his bladecraftmansship. All I had was my Iphone 5S but it had to do.
Have a good look at how easy it it to modify the Symetrics plate to fit any skate with a flat bottom. Now time to destroy them on some rough terrain! – Remy Cadier.

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!
