just saw this clip on vimeo for the Alchemy pure air skate....

I immediately was turned off by what looks like the IU logo on the side of the boot

has anyone heard anything about these skates at all? They look sort of like remanufactured solomon boots

so the way I hear it is that Alchemy came to an old manufacturer of Salomon, and were presented with a cheap alternative to making a completely new mold.

i think that since China has such shady ethics about ripping off patents when they manufacture products, it's probably a ripped off Salomon mold. It's like, once you take your technology, patent, or whatever, to them and it's in their hands, they will pirate/bootleg/copy the design and sell the design as a template for smaller companies. Insert nonsense about international trade laws that I am not aware of, and there you have it.

Scientific FACT. Shocked

I have never skated salomons, but I would rock those boots on some create original frames

There was some other pair of skates I saw on RN awhile back that ripped off the salo boot mold too.. I think it was bladerunner or something like that. Alchemy also made a more polygonal version of the mook frame. seems sketch
