Trying On Echo Skates! WinterClash 2024 | Aggressive Inline

Tue, Feb 27, 2024

Quoting Spook Wackagoo:

During the Winterclash 2024 tradeshow, I was able to try on the Echo skate! We were informed after trying on the skate that it was a 3d printed mold and was made simply for sizing purposes.

All in all, the length of the skate was a little beyond a size 10, and the footbed was pretty wide compared to the 909s or the Faction Tacticals. That being said, they were very comfy and I really enjoy the aesthetic of them. Excited to see what comes next! - Spook Wackadoo.

Tom Hyser Interview - Blank Warlock Prototype Skates

Fri, Mar 31, 2017
Tom Hyser Interview - Blank Warlock Prototype Skates

Can you reveal to us, who is the originator of the Warlock skate?

I had the basic idea for this skate. My good friend, Kyle Sola, is a very talented 3D designer and skater. He and I have always talked about crazy skate design ideas. As of last year, Kyle is part of the innovation team at Rollerblade. He also works in the design world for a few different brands that have nothing to do with skating.

This work experience gives him access to the new wave of design processes. We got to talking about a concept skate that I’ve had in my mind for a long time. I skated Xsjado skates for about 3 years prior to my employment with Rollerblade. I really liked the skate, but always felt it was too wide, unsupportive, and aesthetically unappealing.

Kyle and I both like to speed skate and skate marathons, so we’ve spent time in high end race skates. Once you skate a heat moldable race skate, you realize how a skate should fit and react. I test all of the skates Rollerblade makes. I am also lucky to be able to purchase just about every skate that every other brand makes to test as well.

I have all these skates in my head, and this influences what I want out of a great skate product. Kyle also tests a lot of different skates and ideas. Together we are making some magic with our skate designs and innovations. I’m blessed to have the opportunity to work with Kyle. Our collaborative ideas are always progressing. […]

Xsjado Roots - with Shane Coburn, Dustin Latimer, Chris Farmer & Mike Obedoza

Xsjado Roots - with Shane Coburn, Dustin Latimer, Chris Farmer & Mike Obedoza

up: Shane Coburn and the Xsjado prototype.

Some might argue that this word is pronounced as X-eS-jay-dough. To the Blader’s that know, this word is a progressive way to pronounce Shadow. Like this brand’s name, it represents in many ways the culture that this company is all about.

Shane Coburn, an inline skating guru, enjoyed snowboarding during the winters. After accidentally picking up a snowboard binding that got mixed into a box of inline skates while looking for a pair of cuffs, the idea of marrying a cuff to the boot was burned into his brain. He added an inline frame and the product was generations in advance.

Coburn, working for Senate wheels at the time, went off to do his own wheel project called Medium. From here he met Dustin Latimer, arguably one of the best Professional Blader’s that ever existed, and they began to develop a revolutionary wheel company called, Mindgame. Meanwhile, Coburn continued to try and find the right place and timing for this new skate product he had in mind and soon connected with another outdoor sports manufacturer, Salomon.

With Dustin Latimer’s Blading being generations ahead of its time, he was very helpful in engineering a new inline skating product that provided an all new experience. The design was to have the skater attached to the soul, providing better mobility. Along with another Professional Blader that was ahead of his time, Chris Farmer, they were able to demonstrate the ninja capabilities with these new skates that attached to your shoes, we call Footwraps.

Salomon later moved out of the Inline outdoor activities, with Coburn and Latimer retiring soon after, and handed the technology to Powerslide whom continues to make Xsjado Skates today. Mike Obedoza now overlooks the brand for Powerslide and with Chris Farmer, continues to support the offspring from these pioneers that are the most progressive Street Blader’s in Blading today.
