    I'm on-board but I have concerns about the shell sizing. I haven't listened to the podcast yet but I did read three sizes: Small (US7/8 ), Medium (US9/10) and Large (US11/12). Typically falling somewhere between an 8 and a 9 I'm wondering how roomy the shell is compared to the M12.

    Also, Not saying I'm a fan of the boot, but that podcast made me want to support. It worked very well and the man is doing whatever he can to make the shit happen- even if the overall pie is shrinking. I'm also excited to hear that it's wider than the v13 which was always a problem for me/not able to ride Valo's in the past.

    i'm pretty sure i heard jon say "heel lift" in the mushroom blading podcast.
    oh well, i'm certain most bladers won't care about that though and i really hope china man doesn't fuck him over by using the rong plastic.

    I think THEM skates look proper gash, but I'm probably going to buy some if I can. It's worth supporting Julio imo. I wonder what the liners are like? Could be decent with a stock frame and flat set up of THEM wheels?

    I was kinda hoping for something really minimal like a ufs version of these:



    Nick Labarre was skating something similar, he posted a picture on his instagram, looked sick.

    He said on the podcast the shells are wider fitting than the M12. Don't know anything about the liners though.

    Still a great idea.

    Cheaper skates.

    I guess unless you've ridden a pair , you probably cannot complain.

    I can't find the one from his instagram, but it's these with a flat set up of dirtbox wheels:



    I know people will probably think think they're shite, but I find the simplicity really appealing.

    Goddam, Royales on the boot with those feels amazing. I had the impact 100s which are basically the same and Royales were hard, but awesome. If that soul plate went all the way across the bottom of the boot to support the frame that would be so sick.
