Grindplate: Slipknot

The Soap Broadsides was Soap's first model to feature a sole plate along with a lateral (aka 50/50) plate. The name of this brand new hybrid grindplate was the slipknot. Slipknot grindplates grind slower than standard Soap grind plates, which can be a good thing. The only drawbacks to the slipknot grind plates is that they are non-replacable, and don't lock-on to objects well when new (once you wear them for a while grooves will form in the plates for lock-on.) An advantage to the slipknots, other than the sole plate, is the shape on the sides of the lateral (50/50) plate, which are shaped perfectly for doing tricks where you have to tweak your feet, such as royales, UFOs, backslides etc. The Broadsides themselves are extremely light weight shoes, perfect for getting some height on your jumps. Broadsides are also very comfortable. Due to the lack of popularity of the Broadsides (caused by their high original cost) they are now discontinued. A limited amount of these shoes were released.

Colors:
-Blue (black / blue / white)
-Green (black / green / white)

Sizes: 3-13 (Blue came in 14)

Broadsides are the soaps with the sole grind plate. They allow you to do a wider variety of tricks. the normal grind plates work wery well, i found the normal plates to work well, very slidey (if that is a word), and very nice on granite and ledges. The sole plate is nice, just a little wobbly. The shoes are not very comfortable. As far as comfort and skating go, i would pick my globes any day. But overall this seems to be a very good shoe, even though it is nowhere to be found on the internet. Oh yeah, it comes in green or blue, I have green.

Apr 26, 2006 Surfaced

i wouldn't even attempt to ride a skateboard with these.

May 15, 2006 Surfaced

And I loved how the mesh connected the tongue to the rest of the shoe. So comfy... unless your ankle is rubbing on the plastic, which I have no Idea why they had there. For the standard rail, the 50/50 plate is a little big, so it may wobble a bit. The Arch plate is HUGE. Grooves may get in there over time, as stated above. The shoe is consructed of a lovely leathery material, and plastic for the final lace holes (this plastic goes around the back and the logo goes over it, along with a couple decorational lines). Some of the leathery material is embossed in lines for looks. There is a very rugged toegaurd, and metal lace rings. Below the grind plate, the text "Soap" is visible. What else... o yeah, if you are using a practice rail, you are gonna want wax, or else you are going to be putting a lot of energy into getting speed.
I forgot to mention, these have by far the largest slope for doing tweaked grinds, such as royales. Its so easy.

Jun 12, 2006 AnthoFlex

It looks as though Cess SLides would be a lot easier with these....the plate sticks out a lot form the sides.....a lot of people thin kthat Cess slides are gay, but i dunt.....not really SOaping, but something fun to do on a very smooth floor

Jun 12, 2006 Mart

More plastic out at the sides means that you have less shoe in contact with the surface you're cess sliding, which means you have less control. I find royales hard in these because I can't brake on the side of the shoe, which is crucial when grinding handrails

Jun 12, 2006 Mart

Also, I find these shoes so uncomfortable, although that is to be expected when most of the sole is made of plastic

Aug 7, 2006 AnthoFlex

YEa, my friend lent me his broadsides yesterday and the fucking plate is soooo wobly! Holy shit...and its uncomfortable, most of the sole is made outta plastic so i guess thats why.....Not recommended

Aug 7, 2006 AnthoFlex

also, Mart, the whole cess slideing thing....no control...sux

Aug 7, 2006 AnthoFlex

*you were right

Aug 12, 2006 Mart

I wouldn't go so far to say that these aren't recommended, the fact that they're the only pair of Soap Shoes to be made commercially available with a grind plate is more than enough reason to get a pair. It's just that these aren't everyday shoes, which says alot coming from me since I do wear my Soaps every day

Aug 13, 2006 XSIVE7

wow EVERY day my broadsides r in the mail STILL thanks 2 UPS!
anway when i soap i like the feeeling of not having control yes it does have painfull counter actions but just the feeling of letting go is what keeps me come'n back .

Aug 13, 2006 SapAuthor

I'm so envious, i didn't see them on ebay, i got a pair of size 12 ordnance grey's as my second pair, my origianl are size 12 express', funny thing is i piad 100 for my expresses, and only 40 for my ordnance, but when i got my expresses soaps on ebay were selling high.

Aug 23, 2006 AnthoFlex

YEsterday i got my pair of Broadsides.....i guess ur view on them changes when you ACTUALLY have them.....lol, anywayz, the shoe is awseome.....ummm.....the only thing i cant put my finger on is everybody says that the 50/50 plate wobbles a lot.....It doesnt wobble for me, i guess that because i have Sk8board for the last 5 yrs...Makio and this other trick have become my specialty....

I say "This Other Trick" becuase i dunno the name of it...ok, i'll explain it....My front foot is in makio postion and my backfoot goes frontside position....what trick is that called?

Aug 23, 2006 AnthoFlex

nvm.....sorry about that, i was just on SOapShoes.info and that trick is called a Sweatstance....or at least i hope so

Aug 23, 2006 Mart

Yep, that sounds like a Sweatstance to me. You're goofy, right? If your right foot is on the sole plate and your left foot is in frontside position, then yeah that's a Sweatstance

Sorry if this doesn't make much sense, I've had a lot to drink and it is/was my 21st on the 23rd, so yeah I'm pretty drunk right now. Go Soap Shoes! Fuck yeah!

Aug 23, 2006 AnthoFlex

Nope, im Regular, i think i like Drunk Mart better...hehe....GO DRUNK DINOSAUR MART!! WHOOOHOOO!!!!!!

Aug 24, 2006 Wesker

Still waiting for my Broadsides in the mail, Happy Belated Birthday Mart.

Aug 25, 2006 AnthoFlex

Oh shit Happy B-Day Mart, i didnt know it was ur B-Day....i didnt read that part.

I didnt know this until now but there are actually 3 colors of the Broadsides....Blue, Green, And......GRAY...i saw it on the 4 fathers Video at 7:02 and 1:21, although the one at 7:02 looks more green

Aug 27, 2006 AnthoFlex

The only plates that are slow are the sole plates (the ones that let you do Makio, etc.) because of ONE reason, If you notice through the Slipknot you can see the SOAP logo, its made outta mesh...It kinda sticks through to the sole plates level....(yes LEVEL, the sole plate and the lateral plate are at different heights.....but barely) WHen you grind on the lateral plate, the mesh doesnt touch the rail.....on the SOLE plate however, it kinda brakes you down.....i think the only time it wont slow you down is when ur going grinding a rail thats going downward.....or an EXTREMELY waxed rail...thats all...bye bye

Aug 28, 2006 Mart

...dude, the Broadsides at both of the times you mentioned in Four Fathers are blue

Aug 28, 2006 AnthoFlex

Hmmm.....I had a feeling they might not be gray but i was kinda on the green side.....sorry bout that then....Its just i never seen black sylons so i thought maybe there COULD be sum gray Broadsides, oh well, thanx for pointing it out

Aug 28, 2006 Surfaced

Yeah it was probably a Sweatstance... maybe a Mizou though.

Aug 28, 2006 AnthoFlex

im not too sure but isnt a Mizuo when you do a sweatstance but going backwards....or is that an Alley-oop Sweatstance?....imma go check SoapShoes.info

Aug 28, 2006 Mart

This might explain things a little easier; if you jump into the grind as you would a frontside, with your front foot on the sole plate, that's a Sweatstance. If you jumped into the grind in the same way as you would a backside (like, you bring your trail foot up and round so it's your lead foot), and your lead foot is on the sole plate, that's a Mizuo. Alley-oop is a whole different ball game

Aug 29, 2006 Wesker

There was also a Sylon model with Slipknot plates, but I don't think that was in Four Fathers.

Aug 29, 2006 Mart

That was the precursor to the Broadside. I think Soap wanted to play with the idea of a Sole plate but not have to design a whole new style for testing in case it didn't work out

Aug 29, 2006 AnthoFlex

Sylons with a slipknot plate, i rememebr Mart mentioning that....i think on the A-sides.....damn, those would be sexy haha

Oct 12, 2006 matrix8967

i want them. i would be complete. i could die happy...

---Alex

Nov 11, 2006 matrix8967

I just got my pair in the mail...they're amazing...they have plastic trim in some places (possibly for cess slides?) they're a little snug so I may sell them eventually...I havn't tried to grind with them and won't be able to until a few days...but man oh man...just having them gives me a feeling of "OMFG!"

---Alex

Dec 29, 2006 AnthoFlex

My Sole plate has almost completly stopped....

*sniffle

Dec 29, 2006 SonicSoaper

We'll make them better. We have the technology. We'll make them faster, stronger, less sucky on fatter rails.

THE MILLION DOLLAR BROADSIDE!!!!

Dec 29, 2006 Kru

No what would make them better is a replaceable sole plate. *evil laughter*

Dec 30, 2006 SonicSoaper

That would take so much time to take out though.

Jan 10, 2007 matrix8967

i got mine on ebay. super cheap too. when i went to thank the guy he wasn't a registered ebayer anymore. you might be able to still find some. i might sell mine in the next year or so. they're a size 9 and i'm a 9.5 (US size) and i can squeeze into them, but after a few hours it hurts.

---Alex

Jan 10, 2007 snikas

na im rally need like a 10.5 or an 11. so ill keep looken thanks

Jan 10, 2007 snikas

if any one is willing to sell a pair. id be happy to by them as long as there in ok shape. just saying

Jan 24, 2007 AnthoFlex

High cost my ass....I see kids these days dishing out 150 or more for the newest Jordans or sumthing...and in my friend's case, Nike SB Dunks...or sumthing

$130 for Broadsides is nothing compared to what is spent on shoes these days

Jan 24, 2007 SonicSoaper

The prices don't bother me. it's the whackos who act like they have OCD when they get their sneaks a little bit dirty.

Jan 24, 2007 RamenRadio

O_O
$130 for Broadsides? I think I have a VERY good deal then... ^_^
These shoes look nice, and from what I read about the plates, they look quite good. Maybe these will be my next pair of soaps. =D

Jan 25, 2007 Slidey

No sole plate = not a Very good deal,
thats probably about the average price for a used pair of sylons.

Jan 27, 2007 AnthoFlex

Im going soaping now yay.....now which one of my Soaps should i wear?.....

BROADSIDES! YAY!

Feb 9, 2007 AnthoFlex

Honestly, No Matter what kind of grooves you have on the 50/50 plate, There is still gonna be TERRIBLE lock-in

But i still love my Broadsides....they are sum sexy shoes....actually, i think i'll wear them today

Feb 9, 2007 matrix8967

I'm wearing mine today. I wear mine every friday...ITS BROADSIDE FRIDAY!!

---Alex

Feb 9, 2007 AnthoFlex

Lol, i ended up not wearing them.

I wore my Spins instead

Feb 9, 2007 matrix8967

---Alex

Feb 22, 2007 kobansora

~JJ

Mar 9, 2007 AnthoFlex

Yes, the originals did look sick, but those molds dunt exist anymore

Mar 9, 2007 SonicSoaper

Might be one pair just floating around somewhere. You'll never know.

Mar 9, 2007 AnthoFlex

Nope, only Relate had them

Mar 9, 2007 RamenRadio

What happened to the molds?

Mar 9, 2007 SonicSoaper

Darn the Relate Crew. As far as the mold go, they were destroyed just like most mold are after a certain amount of time.

Mar 10, 2007 AnthoFlex

Hey, respect the relate crew.

They were the best Soapers in the world....doing shit that inliners wouldnt dare do

Mar 10, 2007 SonicSoaper

I got nothing but respect for those guys but it's their shoes I be wantin. Argh! Now I be a freakin pirate.

Mar 24, 2007 SonicSoaper

They be beautiful shoes.

Mar 24, 2007 matrix8967

yeah, tell me about it

Mar 30, 2007 Slider388

ooh dude I'd so buy a pair of broadslided as soon as they came out!

Mar 30, 2007 pepsi

heh, i think almost everyone that doesn't have a pair would buy them as soon as they came out.

Mar 30, 2007 Slider388

yeah man...the grind plate is so frickin sick

Mar 30, 2007 pepsi

yup agreed :)

Apr 2, 2007 Joshua3109

Ok I want these shoes.

Apr 4, 2007 Zhowulf

These look sweet. I hope HSL brings back more of the older models.

May 27, 2007 MusicSoaper

I'm curious, has HSL even considered coming out with a new line of soap shoes like these or any at all?

May 28, 2007 SonicSoaper

....No.

Jun 29, 2007 Megashadow77

......I would eat these shoes.

Jul 11, 2007 grind860

why the fuck would you eat those shoes thats fucking retarded.

Jul 11, 2007 Altman

why the fuck would you care thats fucking retarded.

Jul 11, 2007 Megashadow77

I wouldn't ACTUALLY eat them, you douchebag

Aug 7, 2007 xJeremiahx

Hey, are these good for drag queens?

Aug 7, 2007 rhinoskater30

I wouldn't do drag queens if I got my hands on this shoe. I want to get a good, full use of them. Ya never know when you'll see em again.
But yeah, I guess so, I mean the have plastic at the toe, but I don't know how much is sticking out.

Aug 12, 2007 AnthoFlex

it doesnt stick out at all

Aug 14, 2007 Altman

And if it did, wouldn't it just make the shoe slide better?

Aug 14, 2007 AnthoFlex

For Drag Queens yea, in grinding in general, its irrelevant.

Aug 14, 2007 Altman

That's what I meant, drag queens.

Aug 19, 2007 greenfire8484

i loooooooooooooooooove this shoe and i looooooooooooooooooooooove the plate

Aug 28, 2007 greenfire8484

waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaant broadsides

Sep 20, 2007 Megashadow77

We Also All Want Broadsides!

Sep 20, 2007 RamenRadio

YEAH BOIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Jan 9, 2008 RamenRadio

I sure could use a different pair of shoes with a sole plate.

Mr. wilsons don't have the best lockin.

Jan 13, 2008 moman

i want a pair of these so bad, i need to know where i can get a pair. someone please let me know....

Jan 14, 2008 RamenRadio

What the heck is the guy talking about first comment? These shoes have to be the most comfortable shoes.

HSL has to be on crack. Seriously.

Jan 29, 2008 RamenRadio

They have the molds for these shoes, they should use them then.

Over 500 people want to buy these shoes. If they did some marketing, these shoes would be flying off the shelves.

Feb 7, 2008 Kain

HSL is on crack. But hopefully with the new guy, he'll respect soaping enough to make more broadsides

Jan 30, 2009 Kooksoaper13

Why does HSL have to be such jackasses when it comes to things we soapers want, and will buy.

Jan 6, 2010 Brad

Let's hear it for Broadsides.

Jan 7, 2010 sylonbroadsides

Jan 7, 2010 Timuukun

Broadsides FTW!

Jan 7, 2010 sylonbroadsides

chyeah dude, the green ones are nice.

Jan 7, 2010 Brad

Blue ones look better imo.

Jan 8, 2010 sylonbroadsides

blue ones are quite epic as well, all broadsides are lol. I'd settle for either.

Jan 9, 2010 Brad

Haha, good point.

Jan 10, 2010 Timuukun

Hell, I'd take broadsides in Martha Stuart chartreuse!

Feb 7, 2011 winglessavian

I JUST GOT A PAIR OF THESE!!!!!!!!!

Feb 7, 2011 Brad

You bastard. In my size too :P Where the balls did you get them, and is there any conceivable way I can buy a pair for myself.

Feb 7, 2011 Brad

By the way, you're now obliged to post copious amounts of pictures, and/or other forms of media.

Feb 8, 2011 winglessavian

they were on ebay, and i thought you wore tens or something? are you going after those smoke scabs on ebay too? as for media, i'm probably going to start taking pics/video this weekend, when i'll be soaping in portland, OR as much as possible.

Feb 8, 2011 Brad

Really? Fuck they must've gone fast then :P An no, can't go for the Scabs, dude only ships to the US. No love for the canadian.

Feb 8, 2011 winglessavian

if you have the money you could have him ship to me and i could ship to you, maybe? or to revengasaur.

Feb 8, 2011 Brad

No, I don't got the money. Thanks for the offer though :P

Jul 4, 2012 zelda

ugh STILL NEEEEED!!!!

Oct 25, 2012 Relate2Videos

absolutely wonderful, I still wish I had a pair of the original sylon ones though.

Dec 2, 2012 Relate2Videos

Mmm green pair...

Dec 3, 2012 gongon1037

need more colors.

Dec 20, 2012 Relate2Videos

true, a pair in general though is amazing

Jan 9, 2013 Relate2Videos

I love the blue, something I always wondered though what a pair in Red would look like. Seriously badass, that would definitely be sonic's shoe haha

Jan 10, 2013 gongon1037

I would like to see a pair of these in plain white.

Jan 21, 2013 Relate2Videos

plain white? hmmm what about white where the blue would be in the blue broadsides, so it would still have the black that you see.

Jan 21, 2013 gongon1037

I like that to actually. I would love to see a black and white pair also.

Jan 21, 2013 gongon1037

damn I want a pair of these

Jan 21, 2013 zelda

I'd buy a pair of red ones or white ones, I want a pair in general lmao

Feb 11, 2013 Relate2Videos

Lol true, although my favorite color is green I definitely want the blue ones

Feb 11, 2013 zelda

yeah the blue work very well

May 14, 2013 Relate2Videos

The broadside with the sylon upper was so bad ass

May 14, 2013 Revengasaur

The Sylon-Broadsides are indeed magnificent. The production broadsides are actually quite hideous and dated looking in my opinion. Don't get me wrong, they rule, but time has not been kind to these shoes as far as style goes.

May 14, 2013 Relate2Videos

Indeed

May 19, 2013 zelda

Release the broadsides!

May 20, 2013 Relate2Videos

Or else haha

May 24, 2013 Revengasaur

Despite my knocking of the looks of the broadsides, I still hold true to my original post stating that I would buy new broadsides for $200 a pair all day long.

Jun 5, 2013 zelda

sequential should bring back these shoes at least

Jun 5, 2013 kowalski

Or manufacture the A-Sides!!!

Jun 5, 2013 Relate2Videos

Highly unprobable, it would only be a size 9, so broadsides would be the best shot

Jun 9, 2013 zelda

GIVE US THE BROADSIDES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Jun 9, 2013 mindreader

these are pretty sweet i definitely want a pair

Jun 9, 2013 manofmisery

i saw these in the video tWo on youtube these are amazing

Jun 9, 2013 mindreader

the blue ones look the nicest i dont think the style is bad plus it would be great to do all those sick tricks

Jun 9, 2013 kowalski

Your best bet if you want a sole plate is to search for some Salomon Mr Wilsons or Salomon X Factors.

2nd hand pairs show up on eBay from time to time. And there are box-fresh pairs of Mr Wilsons available from this Australian website, if they have your size.

http://http://www.bladeschool.com.au/soap.html

Jun 9, 2013 Relate2Videos

truth be told though Salomon shoes are a little slower than the broadsides though.

it is something if you want to get the word out by doing some crazy grinds in them like in tWo on youtube, but a pair of broadsides are much better.

Jun 9, 2013 manofmisery

true i really want to do some of those sole grinds so maybe ill look into those mr wilsons just so more people know what these shoes are and different grinds of course

Jun 9, 2013 zelda

it is true though those shoes are slow. try waxing up what your grinding though and im sure you'll get some more speed ;)

Jun 9, 2013 kowalski

I hear you that the Broadsides are better but I have not come across a single pair for sale in any size thus far.

So sad.

Jun 9, 2013 Relate2Videos

they've popped up on ebay basically just not for like two to three years is all.

sequential release the broadsides!

Jun 9, 2013 mindreader

they seriously better...

Jun 9, 2013 manofmisery

should we make a petition for the broadsides

Jun 9, 2013 Relate2Videos

YES

Jun 9, 2013 mindreader

please some1 make one i want some broadsides already what is that company sequentials problem

Jun 9, 2013 kowalski

They only just took over and probably they didn't really do it for Soap but for Heely and soap just came as part of the package.

They may have all sorts of ideas about Soap or maybe they don't. It is too early to say and we haven't had enough contact with them yet.

Maybe they are not a problem maybe they are part of the solution.

Jun 9, 2013 mindreader

i hope

Jun 9, 2013 zelda

whatever guys just tell a bunch of friends to contact them with interest so we can get some broadsides already

Jun 9, 2013 kowalski

Personally, I think these shoes are ugly as fuck and so are the A-Sides.

I'd still have a pair in a flash if one were available in my size. But, I'd definitely modify the colour scheme.

Jun 9, 2013 zelda

these shoes definitely aren't the ugliest shoes though id be happy with them. I think everyone thinks the turntalbes are the ugliest shoes

Jun 9, 2013 camaro126

I think these are ugly but the A-Sides look super sexy, imo.

Jun 9, 2013 Relate2Videos

guys if anything I would call the green ones (that look grey) ugly, but the blue ones just look like a plain pair of shoes. besides if you look back at previous posts you'll see that the upper used to be like the sylons.

They could look repulsive, I just want to grind in them

Jun 10, 2013 mindreader

i just want broadsides x.x

Jun 11, 2013 zelda

i finally found the picture of the original broadsides, only they had a spectrum color scheme. check it.

http://s164.photobucket.com/user/soapbrotherhood/media/Broadside.jpg.html?sort=3&;o=54

Jun 11, 2013 kowalski

Nice find, zelda.

They look way nicer than the production versions pictured above.

Jun 11, 2013 Relate2Videos

i agree with that, partially because sylons were one of my favorite shoes.

you can see the sylon broadsides in oNe if you look closely at the broadsides they are using, as zelda said its the spectrum design. it was never released to the public

Jun 11, 2013 mindreader

those shoes look sexy

Jun 11, 2013 manofmisery

i want all three pairs aaaaaaah

Jun 11, 2013 Revengasaur

Yeah, awesome find.

Jun 11, 2013 Relate2Videos

thats my photobucket :P

Jun 11, 2013 jebus

where do i buy these

Jun 15, 2013 kowalski

You don't.

Other grind shoes are available, including Mr Wilsons and X Factors, if you need something with a sole plate.

Jun 16, 2013 Relate2Videos

they are better than nothing, but sequential should do something about this soon. especially after what they had to say

Jun 16, 2013 manofmisery

probably better to just practice with any shoes until those guys finally bring back these broadsides if they just wise up already

Jun 16, 2013 mindreader

yeah jebus i hear ya broadsides would be great maybe get those sylons for now like everyone else is sayin sequential better get a move on wit the broadsides tho

Jun 16, 2013 jebus

tru the sylon look is great on the broadsides they are kinda stylish so ill give it a shot

Jun 17, 2013 Revengasaur

I'm pretty sure they could easily fit a broadside footbed/slipknot plate on nearly every style of upper that soap ever produced. Think about that for a second. I'd be happy with hideous clown shoes that had a slipknot plate, but I'd kill for a pair of black clean broadsides.

I could be wrong but I think it might depend if molds are interchangeable. Personally I dont care whether it has the sylon upper or not I want some broadsides

Jun 17, 2013 mindreader

showing interest must do something to bring these bad boys back though

Jun 17, 2013 kowalski

Revengasaur, I've been thinking the same thing.

I have a pair of Scabs that I bought only so that my girl can remove the uppers and replace them with some Hush Puppies or Original Clarks uppers.

Imagine some Clarks Wallabees with Soap soles sewn on -

How fucking cool would that look.

Sep 23, 2013 mindreader

ohhhhhhh sweet sweet broadsides you shall be all mine soon....

Sep 23, 2013 manofmisery

I know right? No more spending ridiculous amounts of money on ebay for a freaking pair!

Sep 25, 2013 mcgrinder2011

Don't hold your breath, I enailed SBG regarding Soap and if they're anything like HSL, then the shoes'll look bad and have cemented plates or just never be released.

Sep 26, 2013 Revengasaur

But broadsides have cemented-in plates... that's kinda the point. Expresses and Scorchers are both great models too. Don't worry too much dude. I think whatever we see out of SBG will at least match our expectations for what's acceptable, if not our wildest dreams.

Sep 26, 2013 mcgrinder2011

I'm just hoping for some of them to have replaceable plates.

Sep 26, 2013 Revengasaur

Me too. I'd love to see re-releases of some of the classics. What size shoe do you wear? Rawk had at least one model of classic soaps (with a removable plate) in every size last time I checked. If you wear a US 11 you'll have to rock some baby blue cleans though. They're awesome in my opinion, but I know some people are bummed on them, haha.

Sep 30, 2013 mcgrinder2011

I wear a us 13 so I just bought some sylons off of bladeschool before they run out too. they cost a pretty penny but gonna be worth it once they come in.

Sep 30, 2013 mcgrinder2011

guess I'll have to rock the Sylon blacks. people at my school seem interested and i hope I can bring the trend to other states such as Arkansas(not a lot of rails, but loads of ledges).

Oct 2, 2013 zelda

sylons are good shoes.

broadsides thou shalst be MINE

Oct 7, 2013 mcgrinder2011

how're you getting them?

Oct 8, 2013 zelda

looks like these are the shoes being brought back by SBG

Oct 8, 2013 mindreader

cant wait ;) gonna tell the world!

Oct 8, 2013 manofmisery

you guys take on the world and i will take on the ALIENS :P muahahaha

Oct 9, 2013 mcgrinder2011

This is SO AWESOME!!!

Oct 9, 2013 mcgrinder2011

kinda wish they'd bring back some other shoes though.

Oct 9, 2013 mindreader

the more emails they get from people interested, the more likely that will happen ;) shoes page with the most comments wins! haha

Feb 11, 2014 freesoaps

i was so close to getting a pair, sequential brands group must be eliminated!

Feb 11, 2014 zelda

yeah :/ I'll miss these bro

Feb 11, 2014 mindreader

i could have tasted these freaking shoes, and I would have... lol but seriously sequential brands group sucks.

Feb 11, 2014 manofmisery

no doubt man, that new company sequential brands group is a piece of shit. they already released more of those shitty heelys shoes! and none of their models with the grind plate, man that's some BULLSHIT.

Feb 11, 2014 freesoaps

somehow someway their must be a way, I've seen so much activity on this site recently I just had to join. these shoes are amazing and should be in production.

Feb 11, 2014 touchmyself

i would prefer blue, but i would take either at this point. it's ridiculous what that stupid company sequential brands group is doing. I hope they go bankrupt.

Feb 11, 2014 mexicanz

yo the blue ones are dope! that stupid company doesn't know shit about business.

Feb 11, 2014 gothsoaper

freesoaps showed me some videos on youtube and I automatically wanted these broadsides. Sequential brands group is a bad company.

Feb 12, 2014 mcgrinder2011

Everyone just keep calm and keep Emailing them. Maybe tell them how much money they can make through soap.

Feb 12, 2014 mcgrinder2011

Any business is interested in profit and the more money they make off of their products the better

Feb 12, 2014 touchmyself

i agree except i say call them up, but true you're right.

Feb 12, 2014 freesoaps

the only thing bro is why aren't they interested in soap then

Feb 12, 2014 mcgrinder2011

I think they might not have any ideas on what to do for Soap or how the replaceable plate thing works so we're going to have to tell them about it and send in some ideas(good time for Anthoflex's Quickdraw idea huh?).

OR they could just not see the potential in Soap and we're going to have to let them know exactly what it and what we're made of.

Feb 13, 2014 zelda

I laughed my ass off when I saw this guy's account name was touch myself xD he's touching himself to these broadsides

Feb 13, 2014 touchmyself

Lmao I couldnt resist man. Touching myself to the broadsides I mean ;P

Feb 14, 2014 mcgrinder2011

Get it out of your system guys...
LMAO HIS NAME IS TOUCHMYSELF AND HE'S TOUCHING HIMSELF TO BROADSIDES!!!!!!!

Jan 29, 2015 Waffle

Anybody got a pic of the Sylons with the SoulPlate?

Jan 29, 2015 mcgrinder2011

There are no sylons with a Slipknot plate. Just the Broadside and the A-Side.

Jan 29, 2015 LIGERZERO7

Nah he's right. Correct me if I'm wrong but the sylon broadsides were in one I think. They looked sick :P

Jan 29, 2015 grug250

the first shoe to have the slipknot plate was a sylon upper before the release to the market

Jan 30, 2015 Revengasaur

Never seen a pair of SBs in person, but the photos look dope. I wonder how many pairs they made?

Jan 30, 2015 Waffle

Yup, About 100,000 were made.. I think. :P

Jan 30, 2015 Waffle

Hmmm looks shopped.

Jan 30, 2015 mcgrinder2011

That does look shopped... The only way I'd believe there are Sylonsides is if I saw them IRL.
