The entire Valo "LIGHT" concept and platform underwent extensive testing by the entire Valo team. Their main goal was to achieve a skate that not only fit better, it skated better and was LIGHTER. This skate also had to retain the qualities that the die hard Valo fans could feel at home on and stay true with.
The result of their endeavor is a skate that features a Carbon fiber open shell that comes toe cut right out of the box. Along with the toe cut, the shell received a generous trim along the original lace section opening the shell up vastly. By using carbon fiber Valo was able to save space in almost all areas on the inside of the boot shell thus allowing the lights to be 5mm wider from instep to outstep and 5mm longer from toe to heel. That means that if you were in-between sizes on the previous models, or had width issues these should in theory fit your foot much better. Even though the rigid carbon fiber is not known for it's flexibility, the flex of the skate is not compromised because the original PU cuff is used in conjunction with their outstanding memory buckle.
To keep the sneaker style going strong Valo has once again outdone themselves and designed an amazing looking skin for Valo owner/pro Jon Julio. The gray and black skin looks amazing and features nothing but the highest quality materials from Italy. Last but not least the original 3 piece soul plate was revamped to a simpler 2 piece design that closely resembles that of a vulcanized shoe sole. The black and gray combo seamlessly meshes under the JJ skin and not only does it look better, this soul plate retains all the grooves and soul dimensions from the 3 piece design, again ensuring that the "LIFER'S" would feel at home on their first hits.
The JJ.Lights are set to ship LATE spring 2011 or early summer 2011. Limited quantities will be available so pre-order yours now to ensure you get a pair.
