Inspired by the Xsjado skates, Eugen made some major updates to
this 3rd generation Shadow. Included is riveted velcro on the cuff and
liners that when combined with the re-released heel shock absorber make a
perfect fit for the foot to reduce heel lift. Eclipse Liners have new
super comfy PU-cast tongues, with durable and stretchable ripstop black
mesh uppers. A new shape to the ankle flap connects to the toe strap,
creating a tighter and more stable fit. It then includes additional flex
line stitching for flexibility in that area, and his name is printed
from top to bottom. The toe strap is made out of a polyester seat belt
webbing with EE.3 embossed on it. Eugen chose Shadow 1.0 Cuffs for
their stability, and combined them with Kizer UFS Fluid V Frames and
60mm 88A UHR Wheels.
"Using Shadows is actually
like coming full circle for my skating since Xsjado was such a huge part
of my Childhood. They were the first skates I started to skate Street
in, I did my first handrail in them, and I learned all the tech-dance
switch-ups that I'm now known for - it all started with Xsjado skates.
And now all these years later I can use them from a totally different
perspective and do moves I would have never imagined back then. It feels
nostalgic and refreshing at the same time to be back on my USD Shadows.
l. I chose a more iconic and traditional Xsjado inspired colorway with
some dark greenish and orange details." - Text by Eugen Enin
