    NEW AEONS (and more)

    https://www.instagram.com/p/BW3-KFkFmjG/

    Take a look at Yasutoko's recent post!

    Rachard's, Fish's & Hooi's bring nostalgia while Pianowski's look really good. Franky's selling those like pancakes, again. Possibly saving rollerblading unless yall start telling kids to only buy valos because theyre skater owned. Aeon 80s make no sense. Also is the paint wearing off on all those aeons or what did they did to blend those colors on the shells?

    yeah, i'm pretty sure the shells are just partially painted with PS's infamous "scratch it off with your fingernail if you don't like it" colour technology.
    i'm curious to find out how much the "gawds" skates will cost and if they're overpriced like their wheels.
    although the UHMW souls might justify that price.

      i'm afraid the aeons are painted, can't imagine anything else.

      only thing interesting is the black carbon and those uhmw soulplates.

        Lolz. So true. The Franky, the carbon team and carbon free all look amazing. I checked the insta post last night, but now it's removed. Wonder if that was a controlled/intentional leak. Looks like a catalog?

          Nevermind. I see deeport has the 2018 powerslide catalog on the site.

            Powerslide must be rolling in dough. What's the point even of buying the salomon mould when they could re brand any of their freeskates as USD?

            Juiced to see the Carbon return to form. Confused as to why Franky is now on another "Company."

                  The Pianowski's will be based off his VII boot, yes?

                  Don't think they were massively popular at the time.

                    For what? 4 years ago?.... Neither of those models is particularly old or classic and both are ugly as shit... Fish needs some backbone, leaving and talking justified smack about the company then accepting a throwback 'legacy' skate from them... 'throwback' pro-model leg cast coming soon

                      Yeah if that's not contradicting, i don't know what is.

                      The Xsjado "Liner" look is appealing to me.

                      The Aeons look like shit. Again, don't understand why they aren't doing a 64MM medium.

                      I hope the carbon 2 re-release has different padding.

                      The new carbon cuff interests me even though it's based off of a free skate cuff.

                            but to be fair, having gawds alongside undercover never made any sense to me.

                                So the Franky is made from something that makes it not a Carbon or a Carbon free?

                                Why in the flying fuck is it not just a USD boot?

                                I love powerslide products but they make the fucking weirdest branding decisions.

                                  I'm happy to see so many new releases! Now i'm really struggling what my next blades will be… one thing is for sure they won't be frankie's crude boots.

                                  On another note - does no one else think of Janice from friends overtime they see "GAWDS."

                                    this is all very very weird. the only decision i can really agree was smart from what i have seen is the xsjados to usd shadows move. and are there really that many bladers chomping at the bit for jordan themed carbon frees, or was franky able to convince someone at powerslide he could target sneakerheads?

                                    and all of those aeons look funky as hell. whats with taking a one piece shell with no soulplate and giving it a two tone faux soulplate line? who's at these brand meetings?

                                      Why does the new Shadow appear to reach the knee? Lord.

                                        This isn't even a funny joke - it's something one poster suggested as a reason why PS killed Xsjado. We all know the Xsjado was fucked and the end was near. Them becoming a USD model makes it maybe eaier to build a cult of skaters around it again? Dunno really.

                                        New skates are interesting.

                                        It must be cheap/easy to change the frame on the Aeon boot? 80mm makes no sense on these skates, really not sure who is going to buy these when there are better skates for cruising on and they'll be almost impossible to do any real grinds on. I was hoping for an Aeon 65, but considering the 60/72s exist I doubt a 65mm ever would and I'm not sure we need any other wheel sizes on the Aeon.

                                        The painted models look cool, but the paint can't last. Strange to do that when people would have eaten up some new simple colours for the Aeon, same way Valo have been with the green/blue/grey/bone etc. The slightly 2-tone white/grey Aeons look cool though.

                                        The FSK model is a weird one, but I always thought that shell looked cool, so I'm good with it. Wonder when people will flat-bottom the boot and try to turn it into a Salomon ST?

                                        That Gawds skate is really ugly and will no doubt be super expensive. Can't imagine them selling well. Rebranding them as Gawds makes some sense. No problem with that at all, just wish the skate looked nicer. No one seems able to make a nice looking soul plate for carbon/carbon free style boots. They all look like an afterthought, even the Adapt ones.

                                        The black Carbon 2 is a welcome return. Does the padding look higher?

                                          I thought the Aeon 80's would be a good idea at first when I heard about them but seeing the photo I can't think of a use for them! There's no need for that h-block, should've just been flat 80 no h-block, and even then there's so many better options for riding 80's. I seriously don't know who's going to buy those! They seem to have gone overboard with options, don't know if this a good thing or not! Out of everything I've seen I think I'd buy those all black Carbons.

                                            Painted Aeons from a manufacturer makes me cringe. Just screams low quality when it starts wearing off. May as well just sell Rit Dye kits.

                                            Also, anyone else notice on the Aeon 80s, instead of velcro on the instep strap, it appears to be a buckle or ratchet system?

                                            Also, ive been looking at that Shadow silhouette, and based on the height concern it just looks like a super hi My Fit liner with a lacing system. I also notice it has the Xsjado 1.0 Cuff. Interesting

                                                    I like the idea of a 76mm or 80mm grinderblade, but the implementation isn't there yet. With the Aeon 72s's low H block and lack of wheel cups/lips you never quite know when you're going to bite (or lock) frame tricks. You can wear in the groove for a better lock, but then wheel bite becomes an issue ¯\_(⊙︿⊙)_/¯

                                                        Yes, kind of silly that they went for an Aeon 80 instead of fixing the h block on the 72.

                                                                I'd be surprised if it wasn't planned. The promo magazine is already made, products designed and probably being manufactured right now and people are about to invest in the Shift "system" (which is somewhat of a closed eco system) so why not distract them with the new PS stuff at no cost to you? Maybe people will hold off the Shifts to get the Gawds, Aeon 80, FSK or the 2018 Realm

You mean to tell me that a realm out sells/performs any throne, UFS or Classic? Fila can keep that garbage.

And what dead company did they resurrect? Xsjado? It's clearly just a rebranding as what ever that shadow skate is they are teasing.

                                                                              Of course, this is rollerblading, so 2018 mean really just means "soon.....or...whenever"
