Trust Special Ops Liners Review (by Mark Pollard)

Review done by Mark Pollard (Inverted at the AMall message board)

By now everyone knows that these exist, I figured I would post a review for anyone who is curious about these liners. Just a disclaimer, I purchased both sets of these liners, I did not receive them for review so this is as unbiased as I can make it. They can be purchased from your local skateshop, AMall, RW, and for around 80 bucks. I purchased the white pair the second RollerWarehouse got them in stock, both are size 9. I liked the feel of them so much, and was worried about future availability that I purchased a black set about a week later. I have been on a quest to find the perfect skate liner ever since I got back into skating. I have tried a few aftermarket, and several stock liners: Jug Black Sox, Blank, Trust Catalyst, multiple Razor and Valo liners. These liners were tested in 8/9 Valo JJ Lights.

Description (taken off of

The Special Ops liner was developed to meet the fit requirements of narrower skates and exceed them in most full hard boot skates allowing skaters to unlock and explore a new world of options in their skates.
Construction started with an unconventional one piece design as a base that was improved upon using high density foam which allowed for less than 4 mm of material to be adequate in most areas. Strategically placed visco-elastic memory foams were used in the cuff, tongue and ankle areas to increase support and comfort all while maintaining the heel lock and durability that Trust liners have become renown for.

Other features include an anatomically shaped foot bed with an integrated heel pad and an optional 3 tier lacing system. Tacky PVC waves were printed on the bottom and sides of the exterior to reduce slippage and liner lift. A large elastic neoprene toe area was added to prevent your toes from being confined to the shape of the liner which also enables the Spec Ops to be highly versatile and accommodate a wider variety of feet that may be in-between sizes. The overall minimalistic design and careful selection of materials helped to reduce the weight to half of a traditional thin liner making the Spec Ops by far the lightest aftermarket liner ever made.

The end result is a carefully refined and fine-tuned product that goes above and beyond what you have come to expect in a liner.

Design characteristics:

Probably the single most attractive aspect of these lines is the design. I started skating in 1994, and stopped around 2001, then started back up again about 7 months ago. During that time, liners were very basic, and similar. There were no aftermarket liners that I remember either. When I picked up skating again I was happily surprised to find there skate innovation had come, but quickly became surprised at the lack of innovation in skate liners. Namely the tongue, I remember always having comfort issues specifically with the tongue, and todays stock liners are not much better, although there is some improvement. The split tongue design looks really cool, and is also a manufacturing benefit of the one piece design of the liner. I was initially worried about comfort issues as were many people, but as soon as I put them on those worries were extinguished. You can't feel the split tongue at all, in fact you can't feel anything in the way of overlapping fabric, seams, and other things commonly found in todays liners. This is the most comfortable liner I have found. Feeling seams has been one of my gripes, as well as overly padded lines. An easy bandaid for manufacturers is to just pad the hell out of liners. While this does good things for comfort, it takes away from the tactile feel of your skates. I like a fine balance of comfort, feel and fitment, with being able to feel grinds, feel where my skates are in relation to my feet, and not feel disconnected from my skates with an overly padded liner. The single seam on the bottom of the liner runs lengthwise from toe to heal, with another seam for the toe box area. When JH said you can't feel the seam I was very skeptical, but again, once I put my foot in I was shocked. You can't feel anything about that seam, very cool design feature. These liners were designed to be a lower profile liner, that allows you to downsize your skates, or upsize the liner depending on how you look at it. In plain terms, if you are a size 10 skate, you could in theory(depending on the model of skate) get an 8/9 shell, and the liner will fit fine. This is a huge benefit to people who are on the edge of a 9/10 skate, you can then downsize to the better looking 8/9 shell of your favorite skate. There is a sizing chart on and on the retail packaging of the liners. There is a height change in the liners from size 8 to size 9. While I don't have an 8 to compare, you can see from the pics how the size 9 sits in the 8/9 carbon Valo shell. My guess is that the size 8 would be nearly flush.

Another really nice aspect of these liners is the bottom traction system. Trust incorporated PVC to the bottom of the liner to prevent sliding inside the shell. This is something I rarely thought about until I skated Valo Lights. The bigger shell design, in addition to it being a very slick surface, can make the liner slip and slide if you don't really tighten the inner lacing system. There is no sliding even if you try, and even if you keep the inner lacing system really loose, there is no movement.

The split tongue design:

The bottom seam and PVC:

As I said already, these are the most comfortable liners I have skated. A better way to describe these liners would be to call them foot wraps. They don't feel like a skate liner, which is something that is a little different to me. The memory foam padding the liner incorporates feels a little different than the standard cardboard, foam and fabric liners we are all used to. They feel "harder" than typical overly padded liners. At first I thought this might get uncomfortable after a while, but the liners mold right to your feet, then they just feel like a custom molded liner that has been shrink wrapped around your foot. It fits the contour of the foot perfectly. It really feels like a foot wrap of sorts, where you feel the liner all over the foot, in a good way. I am a true size 9, and already had 8/9 Valos. My interest in these liners wasn't to size down a shell, but that doesn't mean its not a real cool feature of the line. The size 9 Spec Ops fits very true to size. The toe area just grazes my big toe, but after about 15 minutes of skating, the liner has truly formed to your foot, and you don't feel anything unnecessary. There are no pressure points, no areas of discomfort, yet at the same time, I have a new found feel for my skates. Its really the best of both worlds. I can compare the feeling to how my friends have told me the USD Carbon 2 feels after skating traditional skates. You feel everything more, but there is no discomfort. I can feel grinds locking on better than before. Yesterday I skated for quite a long time, and was excited to see how these hold up over long sessions. I really liked my blank liners, but after a few hours I would get fatigued from soreness in my feet. Not with the Spec Ops, there are no seams to slowly wear your feet down from movement, making them raw. That was my biggest complaint about the Blank liners, there are 2 very pronounced seams inside the liner on either side of the foot that are not padded, and you can feel them right away. After a while they would hurt my feet so much that I would have to take the skates off.

The Spec Ops, following their thinner design profile, come with very thin insoles designed specifically for these liners. This was just about my only negative feeling about these liners. They are real thin, which causes problems inserting the insoles in the liner. You have to spend time to position them in the liner correctly. They aren't rigid like standard insoles. I actually put my Blank insoles in the Spec Ops because I liked them a bit better. Mostly due to the fact that a thicker insole will shape the bottom of the liner like a foot. It was hard to put my foot in the liner with the stock insoles, and not have them bunch up on me. I do like the way the insoles feel, but because the bottom of the insoles don't have a defined shape, your foot shapes the liner, and a thin insole can bunch up. Its hard to tell from the pics, but the Trust insoles are much easier to bend and are thinner. The heel pad looks adequate enough for gaps and normal skating comparable with other insoles.
Trust insole and Blank insole comparison:

It is obviously too soon to tell how these will hold up in the long run, but the build quality, quality of materials used, and the craftsmanship look amazing. Stitching is nice and thick, there is definite attention to detail. Its a shame you have to stick these in a shell because they look really nice. When I compare the quality to my Blanks, I can see that Trust went a little extra further. Thats not to say that Blank liners are not quality liners, they are, but you can see that whatever was cutting the materials wasn't as precise. I am also more impressed with the stitch quality of the Trusts.
Things I like:
[*]Innovative design
[*]Comfort longevity
[*]Build quality
[*]Single seam
[*]PVC traction design

Things I don’t like:
[*]Lacing system

I feel like I need to explain the lacing system gripe. It is totally personal preference, but I like having a traditional lacing system rather than the pull/secure string type of lacing. Again this is totally a personal thing, the stock Trust system works just fine.

Overall I am very impressed with these liners. Finally there is a fix for that seemingly never ending tongue shift issue we have all experienced. Its almost weird not having to constantly readjust anything on these liners. I can't see anyone not liking these liners, being that this liner truly forms to your foot, it really doesn't matter if you have an oddly shaped or sized foot, the liner will be just fine.

Here are some pics comparing a size 9 Blank to a size 9 Spec Op:

I received my pair of Bulletprufe Blackout jeans back in October of 2011. While they may be a little faded from 6 months of washing, they're still going strong and have no rips or tears. If you're going to buy any skate jean, it's pointless to waste your money on anything else. Bulletprufes are softer and last longer than any jean on the market.

The Blackouts are selling out quick, and very limited sizes are still available at these fine retailers:

Also the new "Roll For Life" tee designed by Robert Lievanos is only available at the Bulletprufe online store in very small quantities. Get it while you can!

Custom Xsjado Farmer 09's

By Nate from Skate Sessions from Salem, MA on 3/21/2012


5out of 5

Pros: Slide Well, Durable, Look good, Good soul/backslide, Good Flex, Solid feel

Cons: Uncomfortable

Best Uses: Ledges, Negatives, Street, Rails, Souls/Topsouls, Skate Park, Torques/Backslides

Describe Yourself: Intermediate

When I got these I was pumped!

I had asked a lot of the guys doing customs, and they got everything I wanted right! I ordered the Farm09's with a black v-cut cuff, black/white souls, and black/white low-cut cuff pads.

Not only did the skates look as good as I thought they would, they skated amazing. The flex of the v-cut, the slickness and size of the souls, and the control of the Xsjado buckles was great... for a while.

After about an hour of skating in these my toes started to go numb though, a problem that made me choose another skate after only two months of skating these.

I know this problem doesn't happen with everyone who skates Xsjado, so I would recommend at least trying them to any skater out there.

It is a completely different feel than any other skate on the market. And being able to play around with the footwrap/shoe that you skate in them is a solid feature.

Notorious Summer 2011 (by Andrew Chiu)

So I have been sitting on some footage from this past summer due to a lot of positive progressions in my life that have required immediate attention. Needless to say, it has been an amazing journey filming for a video of this nature and would never trade the adventures or people it has brought into my life. This video is a small testament of the dedication that one must possess to come out on top. A big shout out to all my homies that continue to roll and push themselves to their full potential, especially Giancarlo Coppolla, Jesus Medina and Sean Agoliati. I hope you enjoy the video and let the good times roll! -Andrew Chiu

USD Carbon III PB Review by FSKNEWS.PL

The following text and photos were courtesy of Powerslide Poland, thank you for providing the equipment for this review. First, some history. This skate’s ancestor was originally the Deshi Carbon. This boot then began to be produced under the USD brand, known as the USD Carbon. Through all the USD Carbons, the presence of Carbon in the USD models has undergone major changes, always improving the skate experience in these skates. The latest, very important change was the use of a separate cuff (upper), which erased the problems with excessive flexibility in the ankle area and above. The USD Carbon model reviewed here is the USD Carbon 3 PB which differs in some details from previous models of Carbon aggressive skates. Boot/construction. With the USD Carbon we are already dealing with something different. The skate does not have any plastic in its shell, unlike most most other skates. The Carbon skeleton is made of fiberglass and carbon fiber, covered with soft skin, which consists of leather and synthetic materials. The use of such materials significantly reduces the weight of the boot, making it one of the lightest skates currently manufactured in the market. In size 44, the weight of one boot including UFS bolts is only 1209 grams. The following photograph is of the whole setup using the USD Carbon 3 PB, KizerArrow frames and 4x80mm Matter FSK wheels. The interior (liner). The Carbon PB does not have a traditional removable liner, it has been integrated into the overall design so that the skate reduces the mass of the boot. An additional advantage of this solution is a better “feel” on the roll, control and fit. The interior is a bit different than the traditional thick liner to which I am used to. Going from the highest point: The sponge contained in the cuff is quite thick and springy, but also quite hard. The surroundings are a suitably contoured heel, with a recess. The result is your ankle “sitting” in its place and not sliding about freely. This reminds me of the Salomon ST liner, with a very similar contoured interior. Near the ankle is a thinner layer, and this continues in this way through the area along the feet and toes, where the sponge layer is minimal. It is worth mentioning that the interior is made of three different materials: • The upper part of a smooth material, facilitating insertion of the foot. • Ankle and heel has alternative material to hold your ankle from movement. • The area along the fingers is made of smooth, velvety material. The sewing trim is on all parts is very accurate. All seams are equal with no protruding threads. Inside surface is smooth and in no place is there any discomfort to the foot. The shell/skin. The top layer is made of soft materials. Around the tip of the heel and the boot in this model is black leather. Other elements, white, are made of synthetic material. By contrast, the heel is left bare, where you can see the Carbon fragment which shows the reason for the price of the skates. There is also a carry loop at the back, facilitating the transport of the skates. As for finishing skate materials and details, they are also perfectly done, with no protruding parts or protruding threads. Besides this, there is a lot of reinforced seams, double stitching, and attention to detail on the skate. Liner/absorber. In this model USD abandoned the traditional, separate absorber used on previous Carbons. This has now been replaced by an insoul which in the heel has a thickness of 2cm (at the thinnest point it is about 5mm thick). In addition, the rear part is further strengthened. Buckles/fasteners. Carbon PB differs from the other USD’s as it is equipped with an additional bracket mounted at an angle of 45 degrees. It is made of aluminum and plastic, and equipped with an integrated cap, designed to protect against possible damage during falls. The same closure is called “pump”, the buckle is fastened to the tilting aluminum element to the outside as it is in xsjado or RB Fusion. To release the buckle, just press the plastic piece. The whole thing is completely removable and is made from three main elements: two bars and a ratchet mechanism, so there will be no problems with the possible replacement of the damaged parts. For a tight enough hold on a narrow foot four “clicks” is enough. The buckle does not release by itself while skating. The upper buckle is the same as that used in previous models for aggressive skating. Made of aluminum, with a spring that causes adhesion to the cuff. The whole closure can be removed by unscrewing the three screws. Of course, the PB Carbon traditionally has laces. Cuff The cuff in this skate is the same as in the aggressive model. There are protective tabs buckle, receptors and screws. The earlier models lacked this cuff element, the current Carbon cuff provides optimum support in forward flex. Soulplate The soulplate is an essential part of the skate, without it the skate can not be used. It is mounted to the boot with two UFS screws. In size 44, its width is 11-12cm and meets the standards in terms of efficiency when grinding. The soulplate is designed also as an additional safety feature for the boot, projecting for some distance around it. Impressions After putting feet inside the skate. Ergonomics. The material seems very strong and resistant to wear and tear. To confirm this assumption we will have to spend some time testing the skate. The rigid design of the skate is only up to a certain height, giving the sensation of an open shell. Such a feeling can also be found in the Remz OS open shell. With this feeling we obtain a solid skate, with very good fit on the foot. This has its advantages as it translates into better control and response during jumps and landing. Laces also play its role here, since the upper part of the shoe is completely soft, with no rigid shell. Complementing this solid controlled feeling is the 45 degree strap for fast and accurate closure. Additionally the leg is supported by a well shaped cuff and liner. Convenience. I can not objectively assess due to the fact that I have only been able to roll on these skates for a few hours so far, so I leave the decision to potential buyers. I can only share what I have observed at this time. I did not feel any discomfort at all. This is quite a good feeling when it comes to brand new skates. Also the fit matched my expectations exactly. The lining was very comfortable and correct. The shock absorber on the heel seemed very soft compared to the absorbers that come with the RB Fusion, which I’m used to. The only downside was a noticeable crease in the upper leg, where the foam in the shoe is the thickest, but also fairly rigid. Allthough the skates are extremely light, you hardly notice this with the addition of a flat 80m setup and an aluminium frame. The final weight seems similar to that of Xsjado or K2, despite the addition of four 80mm wheels and an aluminum frame. For my personal opinion I think I would have liked more side protection on the skate, to make sure it has a long life and protection from abrasion. The original, complete setup with Kizer Arrow frames is definately a top setup with great parts. No doubt that this is the flagship model for Powerblading

John is a point-blank shredder. Like most of us in our mid 20's, time is valuable, and we don't have a lot of it between school, jobs, sponsors, family and regular life. John finds time to show the world he still has the time to push it for his true passion, rollerblading. Check out Johnny O, destroying some street.

Riley Daymanstep Remix (HD)

The first time I heard this track I knew I needed to make an edit with it! And since I know Riley listens to the DUB when he rolls (and since I felt bad for leaving his name out of the credits in THREE) I figured I'd throw together this quick bonus cut.

Thomas Martin - Mountain Slayer (by Stefan Brandow)

Thomas Martin - Mountain Slayer from Stefan Brandow on Vimeo.

When someone is the best at what they do and they have little to work with instead of using it as a crutch or excuse, they capitalize on what they do have. This has turned Thomas Martin's blading into something that is one of a kind.
Residing in Boone, NC and surrounded by woods and mountains, Thomas only has big rails and mountain spots that need a creative mind to be skated correctly, and this modern day mountain man slays both with ease.

Richie Eisler: One Foot

Richie Eisler - One Foot from TheConferenceTV on Vimeo.

"Fred's box is the one so I thought I could probably do Sweet Sixteen Makios on it.

Left foot, right foot, one foot. No switch, gotta grab.

I would have tried to clean a few of them up but then ate shit trying to learn cork 900s on the launch...

Now I'm walking with a super swagger!

Spin to win, bro." - Richie Eisler
