Does anyone have any experience with these skates? I have been really interested in picking up a pair of the new ones I'm just worried about sizing (like do they run narrow or wide whats the shell sizing). Right now i have Sz 7 Remz HR1.1's heelcut with a Sz 8 liner will it be hard for me to fit my foot in a 7 shell in these? Also if anyone has any other suggestions for a new pair of skates (other then xsjados or Rollerblade) please let me know.
I tried them....
it seemed like they run pretty true to size.
I tried some kids ones on at a skate park... was not overly impressed.
I thought they were ok but decided i would not buy.
rollerblade is out...
Xsjados is out...
Xsjado 2.0 if they ever release it?
carbon2 / 3
1. buy a second hand carbon 2 / 3
2. gut them.
3. put the liner you want in

The soulplate is better than the carbon plate for me : locks better for tork tricks
Only bad point is maybe the cuff (got support but maybe too much flex) so maybe change the cuff with a razors cuff.
Overall it s a really good skate for the half of a carbon
i think they're little bit wide. my friend have them, they're pretty cool for the price. jut get some better liners!
have you ever tried SL's? they're pretty good, i had an Aragon 4 but it was just too big. but yesterday i tried a smaller Horn skate, it was DOPE!
you re dumb ; just put a skate on your feet is not an experience guys.... stop talking about a skate you never blade, you ve just put them on your feet....
I ve blade some VII for 3 months, they really worth the price!
i bought the new VII's when they first came out (black and white ones size 10-11 shell). the toe box area was pretty wide. felt comparable to gens to me. souls are fun. do switch out the stock cuffs. i used standard UFS throne cuffs and they felt great. razor cuffs do not work on the larger sized shells.
Why switch out the cuffs are they very flexy? Keep in mind I do ride remz and I love the flex On them I'm just looking for a shell that I won't have to cut to fit my foot.
the toe box is very wide. i can't think of any reason why you would ever need to do anything with the shell. the stock cuffs hurt my ankles on topside tricks. however i'm 28 and need a little bit of extra support for my old man ankles.
i went froma size 10 remz tight on my foot to an 8/9 size sl boot with a 10 liner. perfect coming off remz, slide fast good flex and support and really good backslide grooves.
I haven't skated VII's, but I put the souls on my carbons and they're much better than the carbon soul plate.
seven souls ftw
This : lock better for full tork /royal tricks
