love the one on the left.
btw usd carbons or any other skate (with a few exceptions remz,shadows) isnt any better than those old roces, its just new design with some useless shit attached so it wouldnt be the same as the last one.
Brilliant idea. Lights will be perfect for some people, regular shell for others and then skinless heritage skate for those nostalgic types that want to keep it classic. This comment officially vitos all negative comments with Harry Potter magic. If you don’t like this incredible classic skate brand I highly recommend having a look at the following brands for your needs. Adapt are a brand that make hand crafted boots with some of the most current skate technology. If you like a sneaker style skate but more along the Nike styling try USD. There really is something for everyone. If completely aimless hate is your only interest then why not try counting to ten, reflecting on why you’re so angry inside and then if you’re still angry give masturbating a go. It’s medically proven to relieve stress. Stay smiling kids, your computer believes in you.
Why is it whenever someone criticizes a brand for not innovating the fanbois are always saying “Well carbons aren’t so great”, actually they are. And getting away from bulky boots with a liner shifting around inside to something one piece that gives you better feeling for your tricks is also good.
m12’s were an amazing skate. it doesnt make sense for valo to use an m12 shell for most of their skates, but not take advantage of what an amazing product they could be marketing in addition to their own more expensive boots for virtually no cost (different soul plates, thats it). also I’m loving the tv1 lights. percect idea for a 10th aniversary skate
Loved M12’s in 96′. Sure, it’s a solid, durable boot but its too narrow, uncomfortable and 20 years old… and this is the back bone of all their products with the exception of the Light, that’s crazy. Valo is in dire need of a new boot, not a new skin. Julio was my original favorite skater and seems like a like-able guy, but until they actually put some money into a skate I will be putting my money into other companies.
^ He said it is bullshit that Kizer spends all their R&D money into making frames that are not suitable for what we really do. Where is the Jeff Stockwell pro frame that they promised him 2 years ago???? How about all the other pros they screwed over with pro frames by instead making rec frames. Notice CJ left Kizer as well. Kizer and the conference care more about money than the future of hardcore blading. That is what Julio said and you can support that crap if you don’t care where blading is in another 20 years.
I think the Valo/m12 looking skate will do well. Alot of wanna be hipsters and so called “tripsters” would go nuts for these. I dont know about the first skin though. The should have came out with a light version of the first juilo or bailey skate.
I love all three of these!!! If this isn’t photo shopped trolling bull shit and just first run ideas that got leaked then I can’t wait for them haha! But if they are coming out with nostalgic Valo’s then I really hope the liners are shorter in the back like the newer models and the 1 piece souls are wider and thicker than the roces orignal soul plate just for a little more life to them. :)
All you people are idiots this is just the ten year anniversary limited line, they are going showcasing the first skate they made updated, the new black bsmiths and the rerelease of the m12 since Roces gave the mold and skate to valo! Get over making comments about how you don’t like the mold! It’s just a limited run they are doing for the anniversary! Either skate them or skate something else! I can’t skate valos, but I respect what they do and how they showcase there brand! Looking good Jon, keep it up man!
I love the idea of bringing back the old M-12 with soul plates. Kinda of interesting to me how behind the scenes work and working with Roces to make Valo in my opinion. Who knows how this skate will sell now.. I know the Valos on the very right are pretty sweet lookin though!
you guys are fucking stupid. Valo: 10 year anniversary…as in these are tribute skates you dumb fucks. which is why the middle one’s look exactly like the original tv’s. God damn you kids have no knowledge on your own sport or anything for that matter.
Anonymous if it aint broke why fix it?? the m12 was and is a good skate and a good mold to use. what julio brought to blading was skates that look cool and original and im happy to invest and collect most things he puts out.
and why does valo need to have a new team why not still have the guys that have been ripping for years why discard the current leaders of our sport for some new kids who might be cheaper but might not be able to help direct the sport in the right direction ?
Half you bladers are such dumb fucks… a plastic boot is a plastic boot. unless you chop the bottom off like SL’s or make it entirely softboot its not going to feel much different… USD/adapt Carbons suck, I never see anyone go big in them and half of the people that made the switch ended up with worse style then they used to. Saying the m12 is a shitty old boot is like saying skateboarders need to invent a new board. That shit is a classic and there’s a reason it’s been around for this long… I hate sticking up for valo but its the truth….P.S. just bring back Roces as a sister company.
All the haters are fucking retarded.. Why can’t anything on rollernews be commented on without there being a million fucking trolls… Do your selfs a favor, and spend that time hating actually skating so you’ll surpass your ao soul of a best trick! =/
wow you guys amaze me with some of the stupidity behind your comments for anyone to say that valo needs a new boot mold or innovation have you not looked into the valo light. That is where the brand is heading look at all the improvements that the new light boot has compared to even the first light skate. Jon not only improved the hardware but added another layer of carbon and a neoprene footbed plus improving the soul plates with new compounds. The m12 is the staple that the light platform is based off the m12 is still an amazing boot and will help people get into Valo’s without spending the added cost of the light skate. Clearly with the m13 being released its a honor to the original design and letting everyone know no matter how succesful the brand gets they still remember there roots, hence the re release of the original tv1 as well. Just amazes me how stupid and ignorant some of you guys on here are please do some research at valo-brand.com
why dont you give them new fucking liners?
everyone on valo rides different liners. so why is that exactly?
even today julio post a pic of his set up and he had trust liners.
you dont even ride your own shit what is that?
oh right im supposed to pay $500 for a skate then buy new liners on top of that.
ok i get it.
