X Factor
Release: Unknown

Grindplate: N/A

The X Factor were the second grind shoe to be released by Salomon, follwing the Mr. Wilson. The main differences here are that the quick-release lace-up system is gone, replaced with standard laces, and the harder grind plate, giving the grinder less feel than the Mr Wilson, but with the bonus of increased speed due to less friction.

Does anyone know if these had the 50/50 LAteral plate?

Jul 16, 2006 Mart

Yes, they did. If they didn't, it would have been one of the ''main differences' listed

Ok thanx man.....its just that i've been thinking....i want a Grind Shoe with a 50/50 lateral plate...i dunno...i guess maybe to learn and widen what i already know...you know what i mean? I'm sure everyone has thought in a similar manner once or twice

You think Google's got pix of these?

Mar 6, 2007 RamenRadio

Probably not.

I'm guessing that not many of these were made before Salomon got out of the grindshoe market.

Dec 22, 2007 RamenRadio

Dec 22, 2007 AnthoFlex

I actually found a picture of these. Or at least i believe they are X factors

Dec 22, 2007 RamenRadio

These MAY be the x factors. The pic quality is low, but they dont look like Mr. wilsons to me. And they definetly arent broadsides.

I'll leave the judging to you guys:

The lead foot looks A LOT like the Black Slice. But the Slices didn't have sole plates, nor were they released

Dec 22, 2007 Megashadow77

I think it looks like the black Scam....

but yeah, it ain't no broadside, or Mr. Wilson. it has to be X-Factors.

Dec 23, 2007 RamenRadio

The X factor had a sole plate? wtf?

"The main differences here are that the quick-release lace-up system is gone, replaced with standard laces, and the harder grind plate"

Well, the description pretty much says it does....I always figured it would. :P

A harder nylon plate is necessary on a grind shoe whit a sole plate.

So this came out AFTER the Mr. Wilsons? and it indeed did feature a sole plate?

Sorry about the chat box thing.

For those of you still yearning for pics of these, it appears that someone is selling some X-Factors right now on the forum. He included some pictures so all your imaginations can be put to rest.
