Sam Crofts has just dropped his newest promo video for his highly anticipated second pro Aeon from USD Skates and ooooh boy is it a banger! Sam is well known for his fast-paced, give no f*cks skating style and his newest profile is stacked with hammer-upon-hammer-upon hammer with a death defying ender that will definitely get your heart racing! Sam teamed up with the always impressive Jon Lee to assist in the filming and editing process with additional filming credit to Luke Thompson, Harry Abel, Joe Spray and Leon Humphries.
Sam had this to say about the specific details around the creation of unique second pro model Aeon skate:
“For my latest pro skate from USD I’ve chosen another Aeon 60. The Aeon skate series is a project that I’ve been involved with since the start and is a product I’ve come to identify myself with, making it an obvious choice again for my new pro model. This time I worked with the design team to create a skinned version to soften the overall look of the skate and give it a more classic sneaker aesthetic. We also developed a new taller height-adjustable cuff to give you a slight increase in flex for topsides but also offers more support and allow for more comfortable and longer skating sessions. I removed the 45-degree strap as I think waxed laced alone provides a sufficient heel lock. The skate comes with 61mm USD Team wheels, Wicked ABEC 9 bearings, and lastly to complete the skate I chose my favorite liner, the MyFit 2nd skin. I added some personal details to the liner to represent London, the city I call home.”
So peep the mind-blowing new promo and be sure to pre-order a pair of his new boot as they are on their way to shops as we speak! Also be on the lookout for our official interview with Sam and a behind-the-scenes look into the creation of Sam’s new profile which will be out soon!
