Sam Crofts (@sam_crafty) has been awarded a brand new skate from USD in a beautifully updated cream 60mm Aeon model and Sam teamed up with videographer Karsten Boysten to show off the new blades in a stunt-filled new profile which was shot in the picturesque city of Hamburg Germany.
Crofty had this to say about the new design for his fourth pro model.
For my fourth Pro Aeon from USD, I wanted to create a simplified classic aeon aesthetic, but with the latest high spec features. Starting with removing the skin and selecting a timeless USD cream colour in homage to skates such as the Fredrick, Arlo and All-Star team Thrones of the past. Working with the MyFit design team I created a new pro liner in the silhouette of the latest MyFit Prime liners. I selected these for maximum support and responsiveness, but with an added recall innersole for that instant out-the-box comfort. As usual, I removed the 45-degree straps and added extra high-quality waxed laces. I rounded the skate off with my ‘Le Planet Sauvage’ pro wheels from Undercover’s Blockbuster range and Wicked ABEC 9 bearings.
The new Sam Croft Aeons are available for purchase through the Powerslide site here, so be sure and pick up your pair today as these creamy beauties will certainly sell out quickly! So support Sam and get to shopping!
