This might be the year in which the infamous XSJADO brand faded away, but we won't let the iconic step-in skate fall into oblivion. Both brands join forces, speak with one voice, become one team and focus all marketing efforts under one brand.
The latest addition to the USD family comes in form of the brand new Shadow skate. A rework on the very popular XSJADO skate series, the design centers around an adjustable binding system similar to those found in the snowboarding world. A 45 degree wrap round ratchet buckle system securely holds your instep in place whilst additional toe and shin buckles complete the mechanism.
This models has a new cuff fixation system with an over injected aluminium plate inside the lower cuff to give more support and stability. As a result also the performance is improved and it will prevent any problems between the connection cuff, boot and frame, as the frame now is directly connected to the cuff.
The skate comes with the brand new USD/MYFIT collaboration, the walk able Eclipse crossliner. This skate has all the working of a classic aggressive skate but with the additions of a convenient walk able liner.
The skate comes complete with KIZER Fluid frames, fast and long lasting USD 57mm wheels, anti rockers and WICKED ABEC 7 bearings, keeping you rolling fast and grinding on all obstacles with ease.
- Totally reworked cuffs with over injected aluminium mounting plate, to give both cuffs (the one piece and dual piece) more strength and structure.
- More simple construction with less parts and hardware.
- Walk able cross liner for more comfort and support and reduced volume.
- Smaller and simpler 45 degree flap.
- New fresh color ways.
- Light weight.
