Custom Skates

CUSTOM: Valo Soichiro 2 Pro Skate

Written by RW

 Valo Soichiro 2 SkatesThe Valo Soichiro 2 Skate is one of the coolest looking Valo skates to come out in sometime. The color of this Valo is unlike any other skate that’s came out before it. Because this skate is so unique we decided to build a cool custom setup. The skate comes with brown and gold highlights so we added some upgraded parts to match the original color way.  Made in Italy – All Italian Materials
35 Years of experirenace in devloping skates
Lana Cotta (Cooked Wool) and Synthetic Leather Upper
Plastic V13 Shell
2016 Soul Plates made with PA (Nylon) & Glass Fiber
Lower cuff aluminum buckles strong and light
New anti-shock footbeds
Cuff and shell are made in PU (Polyurethane)
2016 Liners
Synthetic material and neoprene for padding

The Frames: Kaltik Schopfer Flat Frames 

Kaltik frames have been gaining in popularity over the last few years. The Kaltik Flat frame is a favorite among many flat rocker skaters. The super wide groove with extra plastic around the wheel wells allows you to skate flat with all 8 wheels; yet, still be able to slide all your tricks with out any wheel bite. These frames are some of the best flat frames on the market.

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 Soulplates: Valo 2 Piece White Soul Plates  These are Valo’s New 2 Piece Soul Plates first introduced a few years ago. They went with a 2 piece system this time, which enabled them to increased the thickness of the soulplate, increasing durability. They are now a two piece system, so you can swap them out to give your skate a cool custom look. These are made out of Polyamide Nylon with infused Glass Fiber to increase grinding speed and strength. Hands down some of the longest lasting souls on the market. Most of the time the soulplates last just about as long as the skates. Beefy design to hold up to tough street skating.

The Bearings: ProVoke Blueballs Bearings

ProVoke bearings are known for their solid construction and stand out shield colors. The Blue Ball bearings are no exception and will be a perfect match for your custom setup. Ready to have you rolling smooth on these streets.

The Liner: Valo SK2 Pro Skate Liner

These liners have improved stitching compared to the old models, heel cup is wider and now made of a more durable fabric material. Neoprene toe will reduce pressure on your toes and form to your foot. These are pretty much the ideal liner for Valos, not super thick, not super thin, the perfect amount of padding for these skates.
