Well the Franky morales skates look awesome and feel lighter than my other skates, but only really marginally. They are smooth and fast riding flt 2s. Not as comfortable as was expecting, they are giving me bruises above my ankle but I'm hoping that goes once I've broke them in a bit. Just too used to my old st 92s,salomon are def the most comfortable skates I've had. All in all though, these skates are awesome and will probably be more comfy once I've had them a while.
Best skate ever made, December 29, 2012 By Matty Fresh (Las Vegas, NV)
USD Franky Morales Caron III Pro Boot First Impression:
I was hooked before this boot even reached stores. One of my favorite shoes made into a skate, Bad Ass. I checked online skate shops everyday to see when these would be available and finally the day came. I placed my order; three days later the boots were at my doorstep. As I began to unbox this masterpiece I became very excited and could actually smell the freshness of them. I took them out and removed them from the plastic to reveal the pure beauty of these skates. These things look even better in person and at first glance are amazing. This is my first pair of carbon shells and I am happy with my purchase, even before physically skating them. The overall look is very sleek and well made. I personally like the fact that your ankle is not only locked into place with the laces but also the Velcro strap and the buckle. The price is a little bit pricey but with this skate you get what you pay for. In the lower back of the skate right below the Franky Morales logo you are able to physically see the carbon fiber shell and that to me in very appealing. All the colors that are on this boot work well together and make this skate stand out. One downfall that I did not like was that the liner is not removable but that is a personal thing.. I am sure after I break these things in I will have no problem with that though. I am itching to shred right now but I am going to wait until I have enough time on my hands to give them a very good physical review and be able to go more in depth about them. The boots are so clean looking I almost want to put them in a glass case and admire the beauty.
Today I went to the skate park and gave these things a beating to test them out. I have to say USD overdid it with these and I am very impressed. It felt like I had very little on my feet. My overall performance went up and I personally feel like my skating improved just by getting these carbons. I can instantly jump higher, land new tricks and look stylish as well. I know a lot of people say that a skate cannot make a person better but in my opinion it can. Before USD Carbons I had Valo Ab 1’s and this skate out does those any day. The backside plate’s fit perfect on rails/coping and the carbon fiber allows you to have more control of everything. Were these expesive? Yes, but I believe that every penny is worth it with the USD Franky Morales Carbon III’s.
This is how a skate should feel, point blank., December 12, 2012 By Anonymous (Brooklyn, NY)
Being on the wider side with my size (Size 13), I'm limited on skates, even older skates. I've got Razors, Remz, Xsjados, and a few other USD skates.
Flat out, this is how a skate should feel, pure effing comfort straight outta the box. I think I might fall in love if I heat mold it, lol. Even with a wider foot, this is just pure heaven for my feet. Souls feel good and slide fast, good support, decent flex (i'll get more as I break em in), and a sick look. Can't get any better.
