Pre-Order Due to Land early August 21
So, Nils just smashed that out of the bag, extraordinary! M12 or 5th’s, no problem.
Whatever your flavor Roces have you covered offering the same colorway for both models. Here we have the Roces Fifth Element Jansons Storm Skates.
A classic boot evoking sweet sensations from our younger selves, it’s odd to think the Fifth Element did not make it through rollerblading’s implicit core points tally system that was relied upon for much of the new millennium. We couldn’t be more pleased to see this boot thriving on the streets again.
One distinct advantage of the Fifth Element over its siblings, the M12 UFS and M12 LO, is its wider shell and toe box. Meaning those with broader feet who love the Roces brand may benefit from choosing the ‘chunkier’ side to Roces’ oeuvre.
The two-piece soul kit converts the Fifth Element we remember into a modern UFS skate with ample soul space and a reliable backslide plate.
The memory foam liner is comfortable and supports the ankle correctly with a heel lock. The cuff hugs the back part of the leg and creates a solid feeling when landing, even off small curbs.
The Roces frame is an unsung hero amongst a growing market of frame products. Simple and to the point, it functions perfectly as an anti rocker and exceptionally as a flat frame. The 60mm 92a wheels included are from the Roces premium range and are only included with the skates.
Notably, the skates are composed of 47% cornstarch-based PU (polyurethane). The packaging is 100% recycled.
