Custom Skates: SL Downsizing by Phillip Long

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.
