Bizo Shoes
Mar 10, 2006 by broox

Hey guys. I'm trying to get some more information on Bizo shoes. Obviously the company has gone out of business and never really put out awesome shoes. But I still want to get some info. I'm trying to figure out all the model names, what they looked like, etc.

If you know ANYTHING about ANY model of Bizo shoes, be sure to post it here.

I'm wearing a pair right now that say "Armor" on the tongue. Is Armor a model? Or is that just something cool that the tongue says? If you have any pics, let me know, I could use those too. Thanks a lot!

Derek do you remember the Bizo Street team video? I believe it was shot in New York with a bunch of teenagers doing the same lame handrail over and over...with some white guy as a host. Or I could be crazy...

The shoe's had "Bizo Armor", which was supposed to make the shoe's last longer from the wear and tear of a grind shoe.

I only remember there being like 3 models. You can try archive.org to find older info.

The name of the model that I won for free (The site had some contest that was unbelievably easy to win) is called "Hardware".

rockin, thanks dario. i just took a few pics of my shoes earlier this morning... or yesterday morning - it's now 1am. we'll compare and see which model we both have. it's probably the same because i also won mine from that "going out of business give-away"

I'm assuming you checked Google Images but...if you haven't, there's a couple shots of some models.

Hope this helps Derek, I am 100% positive that these are the Bizo Hardware shoes. Charcoal/Black combo I beleive.

Dario, those are the ones I have - however i thought they were blue / light gray. Could those be the Ax?

Mar 16, 2006 Wesker

Unless they sent me the wrong ones, I asked for the Hardware hah.

Man, those shoes actually look awful. Look at that huge gab between the plate and the sole in the first picture!

Derek, just noted size 12 Bizo's at ebay item #220005550863, looks like the Downtown Tan/Navy. Say, did those Bizo Quickclip plates stay on any better than than the Soap Quickdraws?

Jul 9, 2006 Wesker

I could only assume so considering the plates have never fell off on my Bizo's.

Go2Crew: What role did you have over at HSL/Instride/Soap shoes?

An old image of a Bizo shoe:


Not sure which model because it is white and white is not a listed colour scheme for any model of Bizo. They don't look like the Hardwares though, so I guess they are Ax or Downtown.

wtf!?!??! dude nice find!

These are nice. A dutch shop still sells them. Such Mystery! Oh and that pic that Kowalski posted.. Those are the Downtown.

Bizo Ax Lt. gray, Downtown Tab and Lt. Gray and Charcoal. Only grind models. I heard a myth that more were planned but Bizo went down in 2005. Would be sick if someone bought the patent and revived them. Like Axion. The company was founded by Mitchell Jamel and the grind shoe production started in 1999. Prior to that it was skate shoes only and they were extremely uncomfortable. There was never a big demand for their shoes and every pair you bought you would get a free skateboard and 6-month warranty. Bizo was founded in 1994. It's actually Bizö not Bizo. The Bizo HQ was located at 255 NE Spanish River Blvd, Boca Raton , Fl. 33431.

Additional info: Here is the patent for Bizo http://www.google.com/patents/US6788200 Mitchell W. Jamel now works as a real estate agent in Augustine.
