USD Carbon III Franky Morales

First spotted on September 2012, here are the USD Carbon III Franky Morales.

USD Carbon III, Franky Morales Custom Setup

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!

Technical Details

This is a real softboot hybrid that lasts even longer and includes a cuff for improved support and flexibility. This cuff, which has been created with an exclusive mold, includes a v-cut cuff which matches the enhanced lining of the skate. The improved flex thanks to this new cuff means that there is less stress on the inside lining allowing for longer life, perfect heel lock and, all round better performance.

The flex is also supported by a unique tongue, a one piece construction made from different foams allowing for great comfort, perfect flex and no wrinkles or surplus material that could cause blisters.

We also redesigned the internal structure making the carbon lower, with a new shape. We built in more flex zones to accommodate the additional cuff while maintaining plenty of support to do any trick you can imagine and we made the crucial enhancement of superb forward flex being implemented into the design, a real bonus when it comes to your jumps and landings.

The Carbon III Franky Morales includes

  • 5 year guarantee for the carbon shell. Warranty against breakage while using it skating. Note that the Carbon shell will not degenerate with time or usage.
  • Shoe-like fit. Shoe-like appearance.
  • 1035g including soulplate in size 41.
  • 35% less volume than that of a standard hard boot.
  • 25% less weight than a standard hard boot.
  • Total control with direct power transfer.
  • Low cut cuff with more lateral support and enhanced forward flex.
  • Rear V-cut.
  • New Powerslide Slimfit innersole.
  • Neoprene and Microfiber interior lining for optimum control, last and comfort.
  • Compatible with the Carbon soul plates, thin, light, high performance design.
  • Also fits the new USD VII plate.
  • Strong real 2,5mm thick Leather and artificial Nanoleather upper with perfect wrap around.
  • New aluminum buckle.
  • New one piece tongue including flex cuts.
  • Customizable cuff, buckle, hinge, laces and soulplates.
  • Front and rear flex cut.

    Wow, Sick design! Pretty flashy, but I like them . Reminds me of Air Max designs. Not timeless, but imo well balanced.

    It’s lack of fantasy and creativity. Do you guys really think that copying NIKE sneakers is OK ? Shame on Powerslide!

  33. whoooo Says:

    they look like optimus prime

  34. bladebladeblade Says:

    Why dont they sell the metal screw on hinges for the straps like they made c4s almost a year ago with that being a new feature that u can repkace it and then they dont make replacements why put them on frankys even

  35. Jurijs Says:

    to bladebladeblade

    They sell!

  36. poorly planned Says:

    well… looks liek USD is going to over complicate things again and have to dig themselves out of a hole again

  37. poorly planned Says:

    also explain to me what franky does to be pro? where are his edits and content to make kids buy something?

  38. Anonymous Says:

    can’t wait untill they get lawsuit on there asses

  39. Rob Says:

    ^ Your name says it all- about you..

    I am not fan of this color choice either, but not everyone has to be conservative and follow the “rules”. I can bet these will look dope on Franky’s feet when promo edit will come out.. then, of course, most people will change their mind about their strict “ugly” verdict. Don’t like? There are USD Carbon 3 in all black for you..

  40. ninjabeat Says:

    Hope they sell good. It’s nice to have different color schemes to choose in a proved good boot.

  41. Anonymous Says:

    Hope that liners fitted and not that removable type

  42. Anonymous Says:

    This is a slave boot. A slave boot made by blacks slaves for blacks slaves. Plain and simple

  43. J.311 Says:

    Valo ripp off shoes all the time and it’s fine, but USD is inspired by the jordans and everyone talk shit????

    Congrats to Franky. I like em

  44. Franky what are you doin :( Says:

    Carbon style skates have ruined everyone, Eisler, Kelso, O’neil and now Franky, USD u suck majorly. You had one of the best raw talents in o’neil n he didnt like carbon which is what USD only care about so u forced out a major player. USD ruin skaters :( that should be there slogon

  45. :( Says:

    very disapointed, yet again Caron will be the downfall of another favourite, Frankey. When is everyone going to realize there is nothing wrong with Plastic

  46. Dj $l!m J!m Says:

    Wow, fuck theese mad ass rollers, Just be happy that a Vet made his dream skate. Half of u fags would prolly do the same fucktards. Let me put something in prospective for u…REMZ LOOK LIKE FUCKIN JORDANS TOO ASSWIPES! I dont see any hate twords Kato…
    Props to the man who created STEEZ for rollerblading! This skate is just proof to solidify that fact!

  47. Leo Says:

    ?Hahaha! I can’t wait to get a pair of these SLAVE boots! Just to piss guys like you off! I can tell your a very shelterd soul! Why go there? When you can just simply say you don’t like them?! It’s like your angry a person with color got a pro model! Thats kinda lame! Have you seen Franky Morales? He doesn’t exactly fit into the emo/hipster/goth demographic hahaha! Theres a white skater named Joey Chase with a pro model out right now that might be more suitable for ya!………….and if anyone thinks that was a knock on the new Joey Chase pro model your missing the point big time! PEACE!

  48. Frequeapparel.com Says:

    I was really hoping he’d get a classic throne pro skate…seeeing how every edit he had with them on he crushedddd it..then again Franky can do anything on any pair of blades

  49. Marcus Says:

    Ok, we have a winner, the ugliest skate of universe finally arrived

  50. Anonymous Says:

    Some of y’all have no fashion sense. Those are the dopest skates ever made, those could possibly attract some people who never skated to try just because they look so fresh.

  51. Tom Cheung Says:

    I think they’re sick, bit flamboyant but to each their own.

  52. Anonymous Says:

    Can’t be no lawsuit jordans are sneakers these are rollerblades. They’re not an exact copy there is a few differences enough to beat any lawsuit which no company “jordan/nike” would ever attempt. You see them sueing all the fake jordan factories in china etc. No

  66. Anonymous Says:

    Finally!!! A break from the normal white/black/grey combo we see ALL the time. It makes sense. Trainers dont just come in white/black/grey, they come in all sorts of creative designs. So why not skates too?? Just as long as they work well, like these ones…. and unlike the old USD Petty LA skates, bleurgh….

  67. Dis Dick Says:

    Not at all original, but great looking none-the-less. It’s not always about reinventing the wheel, sometimes the wheel just needs a renovation. I don’t consider myself a sneaker head, but I definitely have an appreciation for sneakers and these are clearly for those who have that appreciation. Those who don’t still have a plethora of options out there for them. I only wish they would get rid of the USD branding on them. People like their shit clean and logo free these days. We all skate, we know what kind of skate it is without the badge.
