Its probably just my opinion but i think xsjados have gone downhill. Dont get me wrong i skated them for a long period of time.
since i sold my last pair of xsjados and been waiting on new skates for about 3 days now i started having a big urge to go and skate. So Today i gathered a setup of parts (most of them were made by salomon) i had lying around .
Not the most attractive setup i know.
Well the first issue i had with xsjado is the shoe size maybe the conference though dont matter people with small feet so even size 6 shoes were made like they were size 7, and that really annoyed me. Here is my Stockwell v.1 shoes made by salomon uk 6 next to Wilson shoes made by the conference uk 6 also wilson wraps alot longer and wider which trust me when you have small feet is like putting your foot into h*es bucket vagina .
second issue i had is straps. old xsjado straps vs new xsjado straps both had same ammount of damaged actual salo ones probably been abused alot longer also length wise conference straps alot longer and its pain in the ass to get you skates tight without actualy taking the strap off and shortening it. Also all pro front thingies, i dont know what they called comes so padded i had to take a knife and get a bit of a padding out because its jsut uncomortable ( that might be just me)
and why do they advertise that small shell goes up to 8.5 uk well thats a lie it goes up too size 9.5 uk !!!
im glad that xsjado team goes out to spain and promotes rollerlbading its awesome but really conference for poorer less talanted people like me who cant afford to buy new parts often at all can you please sort out those issues because sometimes such a little difference can make such a big improvement. If salo got them right first time around its really is a shame to come out and just mess everything up like that
Thank you for your time !
