    Julio and the Salomon mold

    So I remember on a podcast or two Julio mention that while he was scouting molds in China, he noticed the Salomon mold was on hand.
    I can’t believe nobody asked the follow up question: Why didn’t you buy it?
    Not complaining about the 908’s, but it seems crazy that the Salo mold is available, and nobody’s jumped on it.

    It's a small midlife crisis nostalgia goldmine over the next decade.

    Done right, Salomon could release a hightechmaterials boot in the same style for $lots

    The goldmine is probably too small for them to care though

    Because there is nothing really special about the salomon mold. Its only strong point is the flat heel. But to make that work you need the heel pad mold and to know what material to use. The salomon mold also has the huge disadvantage that putting a proper soul and backslide on it is pretty much impossible

    It was on the Mushroom Blading podcast and he said something like "maybe I could've found the Salomon mold", not that he did find it.

    Nice, a Salomon mold thread. Do you guys know if there's a database for old blading movies. Maybe someone could create one. We could all send our VHS's to him and he could do all the work...

    I would only assume that since it isn't an "open mold" that he would have to pay for rights to produce it/a % of every sale. That would defeat the purpose of his commission structure and pricepoint skate.
