Default Valo skates

Ran across a pair of Valo TV2 aggressive skates. Look nice. Any good? Even though I have pretty mich given up on inline skates for now, they look tempting to give one last shot at!

My son used to skate Valos. Initially his preference but eventually the only ones that came in larger sizes.

He is over 6ft and over 200lbs. Skates held up well.

Liners that came with the Valos hurt the front of his foot and he needed to to buy different liners.

The wheels that came with the skate were a little slow and wore down quickly. Once again no big deal just bought new wheels (and upgraded to freestyle frames).

The skates were originally advertised as having replaceable skins but no one seems to seem to sell them.

The skates size is smaller that expected - Seem to run about 2 sizes smaller - Size 15 Skate is actually a 13.

We were able to get another year out of his size 15s Valos by toe cutting the skate (articles online).

Short story - the boots need to fit well. If they fit -- get them -- skate them until parts need replaced and then upgrade.

I got a pair of Valo Lights coming from Jon Julio himself. He works for Valo. I've never tried, them. I'm looking forward to it tho.

Default valo skates

I just got a new pair of valos and I love them the lower profile on them makes it easier to do royales and top side tricks plus the the boot strap system is one of the best in my opion
