USD Aeon Sam Crofts IV - Speaking Specs

Tue, Oct 24, 2023

“For my fourth Pro Aeon from USD, I wanted to create a simplified classic aeon aesthetic, but with the latest high spec features. Starting with removing the skin and selecting a timeless USD cream colour in homage to skates such as the Fredrick, Arlo and All-Star team Thrones of the past.

Working with the MyFit design team I created a new pro liner in the silhouette of the latest MyFit Prime liners. I selected these for maximum support and responsiveness, but with an added recall innersole for that instant out-the-box comfort. As usual, I removed the 45-degree straps and added extra high-quality waxed laces. I rounded the skate off with my ‘Le Planet Sauvage’ pro wheels from Undercover’s Blockbuster range and Wicked ABEC 9 bearings.” - Sam Crofts.

Sam Crofts third USD Aeon Pro Skate is out now! Promo Speech:“For my third pro skate from USD I’ve designed another skinned Aeon 60. In an effort to make my skate more sustainably sourced I’ve this time chosen a Vegan / PU leather. I’ve been extensively testing various types of Vegan / PU leather skins over the course of the last 18 months and I’m very confident what we’ve come up with is even better than the real suede/leather used on my previous skate. I was fortunate that the release of this skate coincided with the release of my first aftermarket pro MyFit second skin liner, which will also come with this skate as standard. The liner follows the same classic MyFit second skin silhouette, but has been constructed with upgraded materials; a super hardwearing vegan suede exterior to prevent any holes caused by abrasion or pressure points from the inside of the skate to give the liner an extended life. I added a very comfy recall innersole for extra comfort on longer session and I rounded it off with a classic 14 wale corduroy top to match my favourite pants, embroidered with my signature geometric fox. We also upgraded the wheels, the skate now comes with the premium Undercover Apex 60mm wheels and Wicked Abec 9 bearings for super fast bowl and park skating, making this my fastest and highest spec pro skate yet!” - Sam Crofts.

USD Aeon 60 Sam Crofts II Pro Skates

USD is proud to reveal the Aeon Crofts II, the first full skinned USD Aeon.

USD Aeon 60 Sam Crofts II Pro Skates

Sam Crofts second pro Aeon features the same classic Aeon unibody construction but with a full premium real suede upper and comes as standard with the highly anticipated second generation Aeon cuff. The new suede skin is double stitched along its’ contours and extra reinforced with a dense overstitch and rivets at the high stress points.

The skate also features Sam’s pro Myfitliner Second Skin liner, waxed hockey style laces, an upgraded thicker shock absorber, high speed UHR (Ultra High Rebound) wheels and Abec 7 Wicked Bearings. A full upgrade and revamp of the modern classic of aggressive street skating.

“For my latest pro skate from USD I’ve chosen another Aeon 60. The Aeon skate series is a project that I’ve been involved with since the start and is a product I’ve come to identify my skating within, making it the obvious choice again for my new pro model. This time I worked with the design team to create a skinned version to soften the overall look of the skate and give it a more classic sneaker aesthetic. We also developed a new taller height-adjustable cuff to give you a slight increase in flex for topsides but also offers more support and allows for more comfortable and longer skating sessions. I removed the 45-degree strap as I think waxed laced alone provides a sufficient heel lock. The skate comes with 61mm USD Team wheels, Wicked ABEC 9 bearings, and lastly to complete the skate I chose my favorite liner, the MyFit 2nd skin. I added some personal details to the liner to represent London, the city I call home.” Text by Sam Crofts.
