            I'm sure some admin/mod on here has access to an archive. Can't you just copy-paste the stories from your own nickname, removing the mentioned names in the stories? Win-win

                They aren't the same size. Also notice how I quoted your link, thus giving it twice the amount of exposure .

                              I believe it's justified. They are objectively superior to most skates on the market (I say "most", but I actually mean "all"...), the latter retailing for 200$+...

                                            Every time I order themgoods bearings with something I buy from their store, they only send me one of the two boxes I order and I then have to hassle julio for them.

                                            Whoever does their only orders keeps having a first day.

                                            Pay with paypal so you are protected and keep emailing valo.

                                                        You were poking fun and so was I... I was criticising the fact that VALO skates have soul bolts that could take someone's eye out if flicked, bolts that wouldn't make it past airport security if removed from the skate... Bolts which add to the cacophony of components and space that lie between the foot and the grind plate of every valo user... lol... You're so caught up in 'skinz on cuffs, oh no' that you are clueless as to the actual flaws of the skate...

                                                        you even try using any of these boots you waffle on about?

                                                        you even blade?

                                                              And no, I don't even blade. I'm Brian Aragon.


                                                              TBH, I've always been sceptical about the lights... Doubt I'd disagree with anything from these legendary posts of which you speak

                                                                  nevertheless it seems every second edit contains people riding them.

                                                                              and saying they are more comfy than carb 2's is not saying much. they do feel good stock, but i could make just about any skate of interest to me feel more comfortable than stock salos by pairing it with the right liner and insole.

                                                                                  You forget you are wearing them.
                                                                                  That only just happened with my xsjado sk's and when I am only thinking of a skate I know I pissed away my money.

                                                                                  The only model I hold in high regards are the st80's and even then I have symmetric souls and creates on them.

                                                                                  The boot isn't a boat like the genesys or too thin like a m12.
                                                                                  They aren't clackitty or tall like the sl's.

                                                                                  It's the liners that make that model special. No gimmicks. No extra lacing or pump system or overuse of neoprene.
                                                                                  Their stock liner is better than anything jug has done in 12 years and better than both trust liners.

                                                                                  I bought them for the old school look and took a new pair out and modded and skated them because they are just a great skate.

                                                                                  But don't take my word, my favourite pair of skates are some SS Deshi roadhouses

                                                                                    The point of riding Salomons today is the fact that our time on skates is limited and we won't accept anything but the best on our feet. And that's either Adapts or Salomons.
                                                                                    Definitely agree about the Feinberg to USD comment. That was also one of the best pro skates to come out- ever in my opinion (with all the hardware, etc.)

                                                                                    I would throw Seba's in with those two as well regarding comfort. They do have some outer material flaws that they need to work on- yes, but the comfort and construction I think is great. It seems like they are smart enough to improve on this (hopefully).

                                                                                    Can't wait to see the new Adapt souls. Would love to pick a pair up once they are released.

                                                                                      Salomon came into the industry at it's peak popularity after the first few phases of everyone else's trial and error... and fucked off as soon as things started looking sour... Ain't no brands producing salomon shells...

                                                                                      Literally of all the companies that people care about, Salo gave (give) least of a shit...

                                                                                      Not particularly butthurt, just mystified by rollerbladers continued propensity to self-harm... Like an insecure little Korn fan...

                                                                                          I assume you've never skated Salomons?

                                                                                          Regardless of the politics, Salomons skate AMAZINGLY. If you never skated them, you can't know.

                                                                                          They fell out of favour when blading hit a low-point of being almost 100% grinds, but people are riding different set-ups, skating weirder obstacles, relying less on grinds. Salomons work really well for that kind of skating.

I'm sure that store has been through a couple renovations since Salo pulled inlines.

                                                                                                Honestly, I've never tried Salomon... nor am I disputing how decent they are... just chucking y'all some counterpoint...

                                                                                                Personally I have no desire to try a pair, mainly because I use a very common shoe-size and I know what I am like with skates I enjoy... That's one Pandora's box that my bank-balance will thank me for keeping shut, lol...

I think someone here said that they were purchased by a French company, but you'd think that something would have been put out if SOMEONE owned them. I honestly don't think many of the current companies could put out an equal product without the resources that Salomon had available.

I've never really heard from anyone who dislikes them, and I like what they do to peoples skating (though personally I think they are very ugly looking skates.... not that that means much)

                                                                                                    ^ my post above explains why I will probably not try a pair...
