    RB Solos - Discontinued

    So what's next for RB? Doubling down on Newjacks? Leaving aggressive? It's really too bad we never got to see that new Solo sole plate out in the wild.

    Are there photos of the new soul?

    I was JUST starting to get into the solo shell after RB pushing it for years - Sean Keane has been making it look great for a while as well as the NY dudes. Shame they ditched it right as people would have been interested. The souls were just so ugly I wouldn't buy them, but a tasteful soul would have been ace.

      I've never skated any RB's after my Chocolates. I find RB skates so ugly. Ironically I quite like the look of their salomon rip-offs. But they have a cheap look about them… I think it's just the overuse of black and white. Never a good idea.

          Too bad these were never produced.

            I thought they skated really well, and yeah Sean Keane, Mike Torres, Augusto Castillio etc made them look sick. I'd rather they kept producing those over the New Jacks. Have they not noticed that a decent hardboot with a simple soul plate is what most people seem to be opting for these days?
