    Them skates arrived

    Pretty sick to see that the skates arrived with Julio this weekend. Pretty much on schedule and looking just as the samples did. I felt really stoked for them all there to see the boxes and skates being picked up in person by customers and shops and setup pics being shared already. Hope some people do some in depth reviews and stuff soon.

    If you haven't seen it, go check the Insta stories and live videos: https://www.instagram.com/themskates/ - Seeing it all happen in real-time is really cool.

    Spotted that all these boxes say Loco on them

    I understand buying new skates you've never tried before as we all seek out the "perfect" skate.
    I understand trying a different mould to experiment with your skating.

    I can't fathom buying a skate because everyone-else-has-one. Especially given how most people (apart from with new moulds) know what works for them and what doesn't.

    need to see Sober again, saw it once and remember enjoying it... I think I really enjoyed the Bower part and kind of forgot about the rest of it...

    never seen MCR, and 7 minutes is pretty epic...

    The Dom West thing sounds great...

    proceed
    It's worth watching his MCR section if you haven't already. Aside from the poor footage quality it gets really out of hand towards the end, some amazing tricks.

    Then moved to Sydney where he's been filming with Dom West since he got there.

    What do you mean by that? That Elliot isn't good anymore?!

Even the final iteration of the Frontside with a full, flat-heeled wraparound soul on the F3/XC-* boot looks pretty good now if you ignore the frames:

    I'm tempted to put Respects and Thems head-to-head.

    Love greedy multinational megacorps. Fundamentally misunderstand the philosophy of heel rise. Want Blading to fail. Kill the industry by recycling and making their own equipment

    AJ (allegedly) is sitting on a truck load of Valos no one wants to buy anymore, since they are no longer cool.
    Rollerbladers sure are a funny bunch.

    How long until we get skinned Thems?

    My takeaway from this thread/community/industry-

    Half are happy that JJ does exactly what he says he will do, successfully and punctually makes good on proposition to pre-sell an ENTRY LEVEL SKATE, for a reasonable ENTRY LEVEL SKATE price to those who may want a simple ENTRY LEVEL SKATE...

    The other half expect neo carbon god knows what with ejector baseplates, state of the art everything, the return of fifth element, the return of throne and salomon molds and Aaron Feinberg, infinity ankles, the best damn liner anybody ever conceived and AJ having canny business sense
