I love them so much, I'd easily get another pair over deshi, xsjado, RB or Razor.

On a size 11 the souls are roughly(stupid tape measure is retarded) 1.75 inches in front of the groove and and 1.75 behind it, in the groove it's just short of 1.5 inches(I was bored one day and measured them when I was waiting for my friend to get here)

Negetives are 1.25 infront of the groove and just over 1 behind the groove

The souls take some time to break in but once they do they rule, it's great

i've been looking at getting these too. i've built a skate on i think rollerwarehouse and my total was like 226 but that was before the 25 dollar discount and free shipping. so 200 bucks for a very nice pair of skates is a freaking good deal. and i wanna get the really bad.
