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.

For this latest version of its OS4 Color Series Remz inspired charismatic Pro Nick Wood [aka The Woodster] to come up with his own thing!
Renown for his positive and facetious outlook on skating the unique Woodster chose silver, or more precisely “keg silver”, because for Nick it’s always time to have a good time and enjoy skating for what it is: fun!
The OS4 Nick Wood Edition skate has all the proven features of the OS4 including Remz’s Open Shell liner providing great support & comfort, a fast lacing system, the original Remz V-cuff for optimum maneuverability and shoe-feel, reinforced straps, and a minimalist design making it one of the slimmest and lightest skate in the industry today.
Features: Remz Open Shell Concept, New Remz OS liner, Silver “Party Time” parts, Remz original V-Cuff, Reinforced straps, Replaceable one-piece Soul frame, Replaceable backslide plate, 56mm-90A Remz high performance Wheels, 42mm Anti-rocker wheels, ABEC 3 bearings.
Kato Mateu Interview by Sophie Planque. Kato lives in San Diego, grew up in Montpellier (21 novembre 1974).
Everybody knows him, or already heard of im, Kato Mateu is kind of a “daddy of rollerblade”. Some of us criticize him, and others buy his skates! I wanted to meet him (actually by phone), to let him share his experience and vision of rollerblade. Interview.
Sophie Planque: Hello Kato! You’re married, you are a dad, and run Remz. How do you balance it all?
Kato Mateu: I met my lovely lady, we got married and have been blessed with two beautiful little girls (3 and 5yo now). I do my best to spend as much time as possible with them, I think it’s important to spend quality time with family, especially at that age. And it’s pure happiness.
When I leave on tour or to a contest with the boys, especially if it’s for extended periods of time or if I’m far away (europe for example) it does shake things up a bit, but usually I manage to be working on Remz during the day and spend time with the fam in the evenings.
Of course I mix in a little skate session every now and then with the friends, good meals, and a little sport. You see, I do everything I can to keep a simple life.
Sophie: And what did you study?
Kato: The “blader wanderer” schools (laughs). I dropped out of high-school in my last year. I loved math but not the race to graduation. I didn’t see it as a goal in life.
I didn’t feel like a blanket of diplomas would help me, I usually do better when I’m under a certain pressure in life. That being said, dropping just before graduation was also just plain youth rebellion of course.
After that i went through the somewhat normal rebellious faze of a 16-17 yo, got a bit into trouble, lots of graffiti, and also started traveling much. I don’t regret anything, it all worked out for me. I’m conscious now that I must be a somewhat isolated case, and that graduating might not be a bad idea after all! (laughs). [...]
