K2 Unnatural Olive Skates

The K2 Unnatural Olive Skates are some of the best looking K2 skates to come out in years. A super unique skate in the way its constructed, it still features all the tech and durability need. The soft boot technology these skates utilize give these skate a super comfy right out the box feeling. As well as making these skates one of the lightest without the use of carbon or other materials. Super duty 45 degree strap holds the foot down to prevent heel lift. Upper strap customizes flex and adds support to the cuff. Shock absorbing footbed helps with the large drops and keeps those heels from getting bruised.



The Frames: Ground Control Featherlite 3 Frames

The Ground Control Featherlite 3 frames are some of the best frames out right now, and one of our personal favorites. Several new upgrades to these frames have made them even better then before. New metal frame spacers makes it so you have a solid connection between your bearing and frame. This reduces friction, while giving enough space to let your wheel roll freely without letting your bearing rub against the inner sidewall of the frame. New plastic formula in these frames makes them slide faster then ever, and feel even more solid than the last generation. The white FL3 frames with black sickle axles go perfect with any custom setup. Comes in 3 sizes for optimized fit.

The Wheels:  Gawds Franky Morales 2 Pro 60mm 90a 

One of my favorite graphics of the bunch. The new Franky pro Gawds wheel features a gold watch graphic on a black urethane wheel. Same size and hardness as the Weed 2 wheel but in black. Perfect wheel to make any skate setup stand out that much more.

The Bearings: S9 Bearings

S9 bearings are industrial strength so you know you’ll be getting a strong bearing. They also come rubber sealed to keep the dirt and gunk out of there. These bearings are perfect for the everyday abuse of street skating.

K2 went back to the drawing board and came up with a completely redesigned 1- piece soul for extra durability, with Teflon® inserts that reduce friction and allow you to slide almost any surface.
K2 Skates have always been known for their soft boot design. No plastic hardshell instead there’s a all-in-one built in liner. This makes K2 skates some of the lightest and most responsive on the market. They also skate much different than many other skates, with a very unique but solid ride.
