Advice needed on first Soap
Nov 28, 2008 by snix

Hi,

I'm planning to order my first pair of soap for christmas.
I have to choose between Chaos, T-bone, Express, and Goa model. The T-bone grind plate turns me off quite a lot (must look weird from behind), while the Goa is quite ugly BUT has removable plate, which is a plus, even if I don't know which one of the shoe or the plate dies first.
So, hardcore soapers, which one should I choose?
Thanks ;)

Stop being a retard and go for grindablity. Look doesn't apply to soaps. They aren't going to stay nice if you plan on grinding in them, in which case they ARE for. If you have access to T-bones, suck it up and get them, your grindability will advance

Cemented on lateral plates and half a sole plate is better than a heavy shoe with removeable plates any day. Go with the T-Bones.

BTw snix, where do you plan on ordering the shoes?If it's a US site then pleas do us all a favor and post a link, it would be much appreciated by all of us still actively here on SG. - Joe (And yeah i'd say go with the t-bones that way you have more grindabillity like Anthoflex said.

Go with the T-Bones or the Goas. Goas are good shoes for grinding, but T-Bones do have part of a slole plate.

That plate is a little hard to use, however it is probably the only shoe that you will find with a sole plate anymore.

Sorry for the delay, and thanks for the responses.

I settled for the Goa, eventually.

@Spano565: it's a UK site.
