Grindplate: N/A

The A-sides were the second generation of shoes with the Sole grindplates. These shoes had many improvements over the broadsides and let the soaper bust out many technical tricks. However they were never released to the public due to lack of retailer interest.

Retailers were obviously retarded. This shoe would have exploded.

Apr 20, 2006 Benny

I'm pretty sure I would've bought any shoe with a full sole plate. Stupid retailers....

Apr 21, 2006 AnthoFlex

OMG dude....those would've been so fuking sick

May 4, 2006 Hottav

What?? That has the perfect style!! Kids would have been all over that!!! IDIOTS!!

May 18, 2006 chip

thes shoe should have curb busters

May 18, 2006 Surfaced

Umm... they don't have removable plates. They have a full sole plate. Leave it at that. Those things are good for almost, if not, everything.

May 18, 2006 Louis

i like the look of that plate.....shame this shoe was never released, except for the fact it looks like crap.

May 19, 2006 onthegrindduude

do they sell these anymore

May 19, 2006 Louis

they never sold these, hence "unreleased" at the top of the page

May 20, 2006 onthegrindduude


May 20, 2006 Surfaced

No you haven't.

May 20, 2006 Surfaced

You might have seen people with the Heelys Surge. It has a similar design.

May 20, 2006 Mart

You would have seen people wearing the Broadsides, and they don't look much better than these

Does anyone remember the Broadside prototype featured in oNe? I remember Aaron had pictures of it on his old shoe database; the Sylon design with a sole plate. Shoulda kept it like that, it looked sick

May 20, 2006 Wesker

The A-Sides being used that you've seen have to be from either pictures of Derek here or the St.Louis demo that Derek also did.

They only made 2 pairs in a size 9 and Derek has them.

May 20, 2006 Surfaced

My friend has the Broadside protos, as I have the Turntable protos. The rear sole of the Broadsidesis starting to peel...

May 21, 2006 onthegrindduude

people do use these duh it says used and pics of people that grinded with them der.

May 21, 2006 onthegrindduude

that guy that looks like bam margera has them

May 21, 2006 Louis

"that guy that looks like bam margera" is Derek Brooks, the guy who runs this website and also worked for soapshoes and heelys. If you noticed, the only photos of people with these shoes are of him, derek, because he's the only person who owns them. He infact owns the ONLY two pairs made as testers/prototypes.
Also, RIIiiiiiiiiiight at the top, it says "unreleased!"....."duh".....

May 21, 2006 AnthoFlex

hhehehe....onthegrinddude got owned....LMAO...nice Louis....no offense onthegrinddude....but you should read the text more carefully

Jun 5, 2006 Slidey

I like the broadsiders but these would have been soo much better. I hope Soap makes more shoes with sole grindplates so soapers can do tricks like soul or mizu

Jun 5, 2006 Slidey

And these have better colour schemes than the broadsiders by miles

Jun 23, 2006 SapAuthor

The holy grail of SOAP shoes. i wonder if they would ever release them of SOAPS get really popular again. We all need to really start to get them to sell when fall comes. I wish they had a release date, and a list of retailers and locations.

Jun 27, 2006 Rick

The holy grail, indeed. I'd eat those up if they were ever released.

Jul 2, 2006 AnthoFlex

Lolz, last night i had a dream i had the A-sides.....They were on my shelf where i normally keep my other Soaps...i was like WTF?!? they were a way different Color scheme though.....and (dunt laugh...please) They had the little thrusters like Shadow...so yes...i was able to glide...shut up :p .....but i hit sum awesome rails....the rails werent exaggerated like dreams would normally do.....they were cool....lolz...mmmm A-sides

Jul 3, 2006 HARSH

So how the hell do I get shoes like these or broadside or any shoe with 50/50 plates

Jul 3, 2006 Rick

eBay's pretty much your only chance.

Oct 12, 2006 the5cooliest

they should have sold these

Oct 12, 2006 SonicSoaper

The only chance of the A-Sides ever being on eBay is if Derek goes off on a rocker and starts selling all of his stuff....or signs the shoes and sells them on eBay for charity.

Nov 24, 2006 dudeman

i would sooo buy these...stupid @$$ retailers!!

Nov 25, 2006 Soopahsonic

First EVER post! Ok... These be Shadow the Hedgehog's shoes (add heelys)

Nov 26, 2006 AnthoFlex

add Heelys? what do you mean? And NO, they are not Shadows.....just like how Sonic DOESNT wear the Scorchers....

Nov 26, 2006 SonicSoaper

I believe Shadow's a fusion of the A-Sides and the Ordnances so no way does he wear a single shoe. Sonic's shoes are just BASED off of the Scorchers. As far as Heelys goes, you NEVER EVER wear them UNLESS you have no options.

Nov 26, 2006 AnthoFlex

Or maybe, JUST maybe, They arent Soaps at all, i mean, there are

1 Jets on the bottom
2/ Knuckles, Tails, Rouge, Amy, Cream, EVEN Big can grind without Soaps so yea....Shadows shoes are JUST Shadow's shoes....Enough with them being Soaps stuff....They're just shoes made by Sega...............

.....And i wouldnt mind having a pair :p

Nov 28, 2006 Soopahsonic

Aside ordnance AND Goa's

Dec 6, 2006 Munkerz

Damn these would have been sweet, i like how the grind plate goes all the way through the middle so they donít run the risk of breaking like T-bones do

Dec 11, 2006 Soopahsonic

Oh uh... Anthoflex? Rouge, Knux, Cream and Big can't grind. And HOW did Broox get asides?

Dec 12, 2006 AnthoFlex

Oh uh, Soopahsonic.....Yes they do, have you played Sonic Heros? or Sonic Advance2 and 3?

And Derek (Broox) got them cause (i believe) he was the only one who was a size 9 at the time to test them....Journeys and Pacsun laughed at HSL and they said, "(crying) Fuck man, Soaps are stupid, boo hoo, here Derek, you can have them.....We hate Soaps now, Heelys are the way of the future, boo hoo"

Get the picture?

Dec 13, 2006 SonicSoaper

I really didn't like Sonic Heroes due to the controls but this is a Soap site, sooo.....

If I had a pair of A-Sides, I swear it'd be like Christmas every day.

Dec 13, 2006 broox

actually i was one of the soap team members most in contact with the head of the company when these came out. i had some inputs on the shoe so they sent me the 2 pairs they had for testing.

this was months before retailers ever heard of the shoe.

Dec 13, 2006 AnthoFlex

whoops, sorry....well but them crying over Journeys and Pacsin laughing at them is true though

Dec 13, 2006 SonicSoaper

Speaking of which, what size are those A-Sides Derek?

Dec 13, 2006 AnthoFlex


Dec 13, 2006 Soopahsonic

I've played every commercial sonic game.

Dec 14, 2006 SonicSoaper

Really? That give me about two years to grow into them. XD Other than that......Bagel Bites.

You've played EVERY commercial Sonic game? Ever play Knuckles Chaotix?

Dec 14, 2006 Kru

That game is awesome with the 32x connector. Sonic spinball is a bit strange. S&K with sonic 2 attached to it is fun. Old school knuckles is the bomb. Now hes kinda weird.

Dec 14, 2006 Kru

Also wonder what would become of these shoes on a 3rd generation. Have B-sides these are A-sides.. all I can think of is some ultra comfortable sole plate sundae that glides on rails like astroglide..The stitching and style is unmatched by any shoe. They would be the ultimate untouchable..

Dec 27, 2006 rkrdw93

these are freaking nice.. except they look like platforms a bit,... stupid retailers..

Jan 12, 2007 snikas

hey what can i say they look goofy but there alost like broadsides but look a little higher. Like you said rkrdw93 they do look like platforms

Jan 12, 2007 SonicSoaper

The shoe still kicks mondo ass. I like the black ones. They be awesome.

Jan 12, 2007 siuol7

yeah the black ones look way better

Jan 12, 2007 AnthoFlex

By a show of comments....who wants a pair of A-sides?

Jan 12, 2007 SonicSoaper


Jan 12, 2007 siuol7

I do!

Jan 12, 2007 Mart

It would be nice, yes

Jan 12, 2007 snikas

id love a pair if icould find um

Jan 12, 2007 snikas

a well the black one do look a little better but if i had a chance for any color id take it in a heart beat!

Jan 12, 2007 AnthoFlex

Keep on promoting Soapshoes and take it to the extreme.....Show HSL that they have a great product and you don't want it to go to waste.

Thats they only way i can think of getting them back.....Like me, i bust my ass every fucking day advertising Soap

And so far, its been going great...So im going to continue....? whoes with me?

Jan 13, 2007 snikas

yeah im trying to but when the people in CT see me they think im retarded. but i dont give damn. ill try to advertise the best i can. so far i got 3 kids to think of getting them but im not sure

Jan 13, 2007 siuol7

i got 2 people who want some.
but most of the people just skate and don't try anything else so they see me and just walk away.

at least theres no one who thinks they are retarded.

Jan 18, 2007 guero12

These shoes look awesome. I would buy a pair if they were made.

Jan 18, 2007 guero12

or released

Jan 18, 2007 SonicSoaper

He fixed the comment just in time. SAFE!

Jan 18, 2007 guero12

A-Sides look just like skateboard shoes.

Jan 19, 2007 AnthoFlex

No they don't....those soles are WAY too thick to be like sk8 shoes

Jan 19, 2007 Soopahsonic

Yeah, Ive played Chaotix (and crackers) . And sorry, AnthoFlex.. I forgot they could grind in Heroes.

Jan 19, 2007 SonicSoaper

Unless you're referring to Sonic Crackers, the unreleased game that turned into Knuckles Chaotix, then I think you must've used a emulator or some other device.

Jan 19, 2007 guero12

Hey I was thinking maybe I could hang some posters advertising SOAP Shoes at my high school. Does anyone think thats a good idea?

Jan 19, 2007 guero12

I would have to talk to some people.

Jan 19, 2007 AnthoFlex

Do i think thats a good idea?

OF-Freaking-Course it is : )

I do it all the time....But i dunt just randomly post them,

I put them next to other posters....Like for example, today is John Bowne's winter carnival. I put Soap Banner next to every winter carnival poster....and guess what?

My friend randy is in charge of the video games entertainment corner and hes Bringing Sonic Adventure 2!.....i think i'll wear my Scorchers for anyone whoes interested in Sonic Grinding ; )

Jan 19, 2007 guero12

Thanks for the advice AnthoFlex. By the way, Sonic Adventure 2 is the reason why I know about SOAP Shoes. It is one of my favorite games(If not my favorite). I remember seeing the SOAP logo in the game but I never really knew what it meant until about three or four years after. I never got a pair of Scorhers,
but I think grinding Sonic style is awesome.

Jan 19, 2007 AnthoFlex

Im getting ready to go to the winter carnival now

So sick....Randy is allowed to bring his Sk8 rail and im going to grind it there right next to the Sonic Adventure 2 gaming place

up UP UP status for Soap!

I think im going to wear my Soap shirt, Soap Cap, and Scorchers....and imma bring about a brick of Stickers

Jan 19, 2007 SonicSoaper

DY-NO-MITE! That's a big way to get people to buy Soaps.

Jan 21, 2007 SCHRADER1010

i need size 11 anybody know if they run small or big?

Jan 22, 2007 SonicSoaper

They usually feel snug when you first but them but they break in and get loose.

Jan 25, 2007 siuol7

these look a little like the heely slide except with grind plates

man i wish these were released

Jan 30, 2007 RamenRadio

Sweet mother of god. Broox, you are one lucky guy.

Feb 11, 2007 AnthoFlex

I would like to stress that the reason they werent released was because of lack of retailer interest.....hmmmm

Lets analyze that shall we?

Steve Deel is now the ONLY Soapshoes retailer.....and i bet HE thinks it would sell....

So......That means, him being the only retailer, and all these comments of people wanting A-sides....Does anybody see where im going with this...?

I'll make it simple

Whoever is interested in a pair of A-sides, EMAIL ME AT AnthoFlex@yahoo.com, im going to tally up how many people want A-sides, make a list of it, and send it to Steve so that he can slap HSL with it.

Send me your name, age, and shoe size

i'll put this into a list and send it to Steve, i'll put my name at the top of the list.....

Anyone else?

Feb 11, 2007 AnthoFlex

E-mail me


I am going to make a bulliten on myspace as well

Feb 12, 2007 RamenRadio

Oh man, I can't wait to get a pair of these!!!!

Feb 14, 2007 shdook

lets just hope HSL decides to make them

Feb 14, 2007 RamenRadio

They had better

Feb 14, 2007 AnthoFlex

This list is looking really good....But we need a few more

Feb 21, 2007 RamenRadio


Feb 24, 2007 kobansora

I just sent an email to get on the list. Hells yea I want these :P


Feb 24, 2007 SonicSoaper

Who doesn't?

Mar 5, 2007 RamenRadio

Any news on the A-Sides yet?

Mar 5, 2007 mgm

If you read the post on the letter to HSL you'll know the answer.

Mar 8, 2007 ordnanceflint91

would be really great if these things would come out =(

Mar 8, 2007 sam

They arent coming out with the a-sides, don't expect any shoe with a sole plate for a while.

Mar 8, 2007 RamenRadio

What? Including the broadsides?

Mar 8, 2007 sam

Yeah dont plan on the broadsides coming out to, I know some of us thought that we might be able to bring back the a-sides, but if HSL wont even realese a new model without the sole plate the DEFINTLY dont expect one with a full sole plate any time soon.

Mar 8, 2007 AnthoFlex

Yo Sam, i duno if you were reading the forum posts, but if this NYCS dmeo goes good (which it will) it will have extremely strong influence on what HSL thinks about Soap

Mar 8, 2007 sam

I know I have been reading the forms, I think what you are doing is helping soap greatly, but untill the popularatiy of heelys dies down, I think they will be more focused on making more heelys models or something like that.

Mar 8, 2007 guero12

When is the NYCS demo?

Mar 9, 2007 SonicSoaper

Either at the end of the month or next month.

Mar 9, 2007 Soopahsonic

I was going to do a public demo with a sandwich board but I thought it would break a law.

Mar 9, 2007 AnthoFlex

what does that have to do with Soaping?

Mar 9, 2007 RamenRadio


Mar 9, 2007 SonicSoaper

He was going to Soap the sandwich board, since it folds in the middle with a grindable top.


if u go to www.broox.com and go to his lifestyle page the banner is him doing a mizou in A-Sides

Mar 23, 2007 AnthoFlex

Mistrial.....not a Mizuo

Mar 31, 2007 matrix8967

god...i would sell my soul for these...but who wouldn't...imagine how much these would go for if brooks sold his...of course, i'd be morbidly upset if he sold them...

Apr 18, 2007 Tasslehoff

man id kill for these. they should bring these into action or get another shoe with the slipknot plate.

May 21, 2007 iwantsoapshoes

does anyone know where i can get a pair on soaps in london.

p.s. if you know where i can get ones that look like sonic's, tell me as well.

May 21, 2007 iwantsoapshoes

sorry i meant soaps in london.

May 21, 2007 RamenRadio


Those are the express, they come in three different colors

May 21, 2007 RamenRadio

PS ask questions in the forum, thank you :)

May 21, 2007 RamenRadio

Not a problem :D

May 29, 2007 Megashadow77


Jun 5, 2007 Megashadow77

Maybe one day, Derek will sell these....for....some...reason?

Jun 5, 2007 AnthoFlex

Maybe one day, HSL will remake these...

Ok ok, not these, but the Broadsides. Yay

Jun 5, 2007 Megashadow77

And on that day, hell will freeze over.

Jun 5, 2007 AnthoFlex

Nah, not necessarily, we may actually convince HSL to remake Broadsides.

I just need a little help from Steve and Trev

Jun 5, 2007 Megashadow77

Yeah, I guess it could happen without hell freezing over....but we'll have to work for it.

Jun 6, 2007 AnthoFlex

we already are

Jun 6, 2007 SonicSoaper

If HSL remake the Boradsides, Renny won't have to "go easy" on me next time we play Game of Grind.

Jun 6, 2007 Megashadow77

is it me, or does it seem like the Normal plate would grind like Expresses....

Jun 6, 2007 RamenRadio

Please someone reply, I've been wondering that myself, but I could never really tell with my eyes.

Jun 7, 2007 josue

damn idiots

Jun 7, 2007 Megashadow77

Who is?

Jun 7, 2007 RamenRadio

yo what's your problem?

Jun 7, 2007 Spano565

There are tons of people that walk on my sidewalk, so i'll borrow my cousins pair of heelys and ill crash alot and try to look retarded on them so less people will buy heelys,Instead ill advertize soaps the good way and stickerslap on everything i can find with soap sticers.Then ill hang up posters and show off cool tricks on soaps in front of people, i could also tell people where to buy soaps stores like the SSS shop (www.sonicandpals.com) and stuff like that, yeah why not.

Jun 7, 2007 Spano565

sorry that last post of mine was really random

Jun 7, 2007 AnthoFlex

"Go easy"? wtf are you talking about?

Jun 7, 2007 RamenRadio

I'm confused, what the hell is going on, and why the hell is Josue acting like an ass?

Jun 7, 2007 SonicSoaper

Because I didn't have Broadsides, you didn't bust out with your sole tricks.

Jun 7, 2007 AnthoFlex

Oh lol, ma bad, i was having a bad day, i though you were talking shit.

Ma bad

Jun 8, 2007 mets603412

i dont know whats going on so fill me in.

Jun 8, 2007 RamenRadio

Oh, I get it now. Josue, you didn't have to be an asshole though. Go heel or something....

Jun 8, 2007 RamenRadio

Okay, now you can't hear this "idiot"? Okay, for the rest of your life, you're my bitch.

Jun 9, 2007 Megashadow77

Josue= RamenRadio's Bitch?.......what have I missed?

Jun 9, 2007 RamenRadio

Josue was an asshole, so now he's my bitch. :P

Jun 10, 2007 Megashadow77

Well, anywayz, backing up to my earlier question, would the normal plate on these grind like Expresses?

Jun 10, 2007 RamenRadio

and as I said before, I'm curious about that as well. And I'd appreciate it if Josue would shut his heely mouth.

Jun 29, 2007 Megashadow77

....I would eat these shoes.

Jul 9, 2007 Megashadow77

If I looked upon the face of these shoes...My eyes would probably Explode.

Jul 9, 2007 Megashadow77

Also, I would STILL eat these shoes...

Uncooked, with no condiments.

Jul 9, 2007 Megashadow77

Then, i would get ganged by everyone active on this site.

Jul 17, 2007 SapAuthor

lol, down mega!

I dunno, i need to ask broox how heavy these shoes how, how durable, otehr things. Eitherway, scorchers, broadside, or a-side, we need a new model of SOAPs out.

Aug 18, 2007 xJeremiahx

I think I would prefer these over the broadside because they look more like skate shoes. Skate shoes are more my style.

Aug 19, 2007 greenfire8484

Soaps need to get more popular so they will release the awesome, unreleased shoes. Damn Heelys are stealing all the attention, but theyre just sooooo over-hyped, while Soaps are ACTUALLY really great shoes! WTF!

Aug 19, 2007 greenfire8484

and really, why would retailers NOT sell those? They're one of the best looking shoes!

Aug 19, 2007 SpiderSoaper

jeremiah u said it right, skateshoes r cool and that's why i carry my soaps in a backpack just to soap, i dont wear them socialy, they gotta make a soap shoe that looks like the "DC Commands"

Aug 19, 2007 greenfire8484

wow if these shoes came out (which they totally should :P) they would be the iconic Soap shoes. Like the shoe u would see on the commercials (not that Soap is making commercials nor plans on it)it is just the perfect shoe

Aug 20, 2007 soapbofo

they do look like sk8 shoes

Aug 20, 2007 AnthoFlex

What kinda sk8 shoes you be wearing? Those look NOTHING like your average sk8 shoe

Aug 20, 2007 soapbofo

the design does

Aug 20, 2007 soapbofo

at least to me it does

Aug 21, 2007 Megashadow77

uhm, dude, look at this pic http://www.kidzworld.com/multimedia/105/6542_3.jpg

and the A-Sides Side by side.....the shape is pretty similar.

Aug 21, 2007 mgm

Those look nothing alike.

Aug 21, 2007 AnthoFlex

OK, when have you EVER seen a sole that thick on a skate shoe? seriously.

As for the upper, skate shoes can have any upper, but you will never find a skate shoe that has a sole that thick

Aug 21, 2007 Altman

Okay, maybe the upper parts look similar but the soles definitely don't.

Aug 21, 2007 vault

hmm grey and maroon ok but i like the blacks better

Aug 21, 2007 Megashadow77

Yeah....the soles. Right after I posted that, I noticed that. XD.

But the upper parts are similar.

Aug 28, 2007 greenfire8484

pure beauty....

Aug 31, 2007 juno

Aug 31, 2007 juno

These Shoes are the shit! Why did they never come out with them?

Aug 31, 2007 Page645

dude read the description-"due to the lack of retailer interest"

Aug 31, 2007 juno

Yeah I know! How could they NOT see nething in these? Greenfires right, pure beauty

Aug 31, 2007 Page645

oh my bad then here's the reason when they came out with the broadsides not that many ppl were buying them cuz they were sooooo expensive so the retailers thought the a-sides would do the same thing so they said "NOOOOOOO!"

Aug 31, 2007 AnthoFlex

Actually, thats wrong, ALMOST completely.

The reason retailers didnt think it would sell was NOT because of the price, but the previous popularity or the Broadside.

The Broadsides retailed at $130.00, while the A-sides were supposed to retail at about $85-$90.

The reason for the price difference is the use of material.

Aug 31, 2007 Page645

my bad renny i must have forgotten the reason and remembered it as that sorry man

Aug 31, 2007 AnthoFlex

And once again, i type up a very friendly comment that sounds very harsh.


Aug 31, 2007 iwantsoapshoes


Aug 31, 2007 juno

But they still should of come out with them. Despite the fact, despite the price. Who here owns broad sides?

Aug 31, 2007 Altman

I agree but then again HSL got a tad bit emo when retailers told them no. PRetty bad move if you ask me.

Aug 31, 2007 juno

Right! they should have had soapers there to lay the smackdown!

Sep 1, 2007 Page645

nah its cool renny its all good

Sep 1, 2007 Altman

That would be a bad thing. A bunch of beaten up HSL execs would mean the end of Soap shoes.

Sep 1, 2007 juno

Oh shit. your rite Altman. But you gotta admit that'd be pretty funny.

Sep 1, 2007 Altman

As funny as ripping your scrotum open on a handrail and loosing one of your nuts?(Those of you who watched Scarred, you know exactly what I'm talking about) I hope not.

Sep 1, 2007 juno

Well...what about the shoes? We should try and convince. I understand that they already tried. Lets try again.

Sep 1, 2007 Altman

Let's just stick to the plan of getting the Broadsides back.

Sep 1, 2007 Page645

we need to take a step first by getting the broadsides then when that happens we can take that giant leap to get the a sides into production

Sep 1, 2007 harryg1122

hey people i really would like to make soap shoes a great fashion round my area but i checked the site that sells soap shoes and there running low so i need to make quick cash so could you please send some cash to my paypal dum_1@hotmail.co.uk and anyone who sends a huge Thanks!!

Sep 1, 2007 Altman

We know that's you, iwant.

Sep 1, 2007 Altman

Did I also forget to mention the good amount of idiots on eBay who will have no idea that there's going to be a demo and just want a pair of Soaps?

Sep 1, 2007 Altman

Wrong topic.

Sep 1, 2007 Page645

WOW.no offense iwant but that was pretty pathetic

Sep 1, 2007 soapbofo

A-Sides give me erections



Sep 1, 2007 Page645


Sep 1, 2007 Megashadow77

^see above comment^

Sep 1, 2007 RamenRadio

Good lord Dude

Sep 1, 2007 greenfire8484


Sep 1, 2007 juno

Okay. So we bring back broad sides first, than we try for the a sides. Didget that rite?
Did any of you guys notice that without broadsides, the trictoary is limited? Yo'd think retailers would see that.

Sep 1, 2007 greenfire8484

you're right, broadside specific moves are pretty damn common.

Sep 1, 2007 AnthoFlex

Retailers care about sales dude, not how good their customers are gonna get. If they think the shoe looks retarded, they arent gonna sell it.

Chances are the customers will think the shoe looks retarded too

Sep 2, 2007 LVsoaper12

a would have broadsides then these

Sep 2, 2007 RamenRadio

XD So much for your "futuristic look" Altman. No offense, I'm only saying lol

Sep 2, 2007 AnthoFlex

Im not saying that the shoe looks like shit. I think it looks awesome. It was the retailers who thought they looked retarded

Sep 2, 2007 Altman

XD So much for you not trying to make that comment offensive. lol

Sep 2, 2007 RamenRadio

Damn... The retailers who weren't interested in this must be more dumb than George W. Bush... President of the United States.... dumbest man ever to have lived... (god I hate him...) and I am only moderately liberal...

Now that I look at em they look cool, but now I see em as lunky, imagine if you can, the heelys grail, it had a weird heel to it, if youve tried heelys. if you had heelys you know what i mean

i want some

Jan 15, 2008 Revengasaur

These are the best looking soaps in my opinion.

Lack of retailer interest! What about PUBLIC INTEREST!?

Jan 29, 2008 Megashadow77

The sole plate reminds me of Mr. Wilsons.

Jan 29, 2008 RamenRadio

These shoes should have been released, plain and simple.

Steve deel is the OFFICIAL Soap Shoes deeler right now, they should just make the new molds for these shoes and ship them to steve.

I mean, they are making size 13 express, RIGHT?

So why not make more sizes of these shoes?

man i want these shoes so much!!!!

Feb 8, 2010 Tedd

Hmm.. So there's only 2 of these and Broox has both of them.. Interesting. Is there any way we could have Broox help us influence HSL into recreating SOAPs or something? Just a dream.

Feb 8, 2010 sylonbroadsides

probably if there was an angry mob emailing HSL or if there was one outside of their headquarters lmao

Feb 8, 2010 sylonbroadsides

god if only that could happen though

Feb 8, 2010 Brad

I still think we should hijack the soap van and drive it through the front on the HSL headquarters.

Feb 8, 2010 sylonbroadsides

one of the soap vans was trashed, no one really knows what happened to the other.

Angry mob works better though, we won't be disturbing anyone just standing outside until they let us buy asides haha

Feb 9, 2010 Brad

If an angry mob of soapers showed up at HSL id be there in a flash.

Feb 9, 2010 sylonbroadsides

haha gather up some people and I'll save up for a plane ticket and for picket signs. I'll even bring a soap banner lmao

Feb 9, 2010 Brad

That'd be so rad. I wonder what they'd do? lmao

Feb 11, 2010 Timuukun

Where are their headquarters? I'd totally do it! Power to the people! Down with the tyranny! ¬°Viva Nuestra Se√Īora de Guadalupe! ¬°Abajo con los gobiernos malos! (whoops, wrong rebellion).

Someone should resurrect the old SOAP van and drive it into the lobby of HSL's corporate headquarters...now THAT would be rad. Not to mention totally illegal! :D

Feb 11, 2010 Brad

I'm not sure exactly where, but it's right outside of Dallas TX. And if i had the choice, i'd drive the soap van everywhere i went.

Feb 11, 2010 Timuukun

We need to make a third one. Anyone up for a fund to buy a van?

Feb 12, 2010 Brad

I'd be. But where would we get giant soap decals? o-o

Feb 12, 2010 Timuukun

I dunno...same place the originals got the bodywork done? And while we're conjecturing, how would we get retractable rails like the original?

Feb 12, 2010 Brad

Screw it, let's just go to HSL headquarters and demand this shit back.

Feb 17, 2010 sylonbroadsides

actually all you need is a soap logo. I posted a thread with some soap stickers for printing out.

Feb 19, 2010 Timuukun

Actually, even though those stickers are massive, they're still not big enough to cover the side of a van. I might could maybe blow them up to a higher resolution in Illustrator, but that would be a tough precision job for someone who doesn't know squat about Illustrator. Photoshop's more my forté.

Feb 19, 2010 Brad

Not to mention, you'd need a hell of a sheet of sticker paper.

Mar 12, 2011 zelda

i want a pair of these

Mar 12, 2011 dirntsoap

i think the tbones are the best chance we have at getting a pair of something like these

Mar 13, 2011 winglessavian

wrong! the broadsides are as close as you're gonna get, but broadsides are pretty hard to find.

Mar 13, 2011 emkay

yea but the tbones r on ebay now

Mar 18, 2011 TehOne

These shoes look freaking amazing!
If only they were released eh?
And I agree with you guys, lets go to the HSL headquarters :P

Jul 4, 2011 maqian

It looks like very "cool",I like it.

Jan 15, 2012 Lightninnova

Im so annoyed that they never released this it would have sold like hot cakes...... amazing shoes

Feb 15, 2012 RamenRadio

All I ever wanted was a pair of these or some broadsides.

Sep 20, 2012 wyattpeterson

"However they were never released to the public due to lack of retailer interest."

How Much more interesting can a shoe be LOL

Jan 11, 2013 Revengasaur

Hnnnnngggg at the black A-sides. Forever in my dreams baby.

Feb 11, 2013 Relate2Videos

These shoes probably would have been much faster than the broadsides, as there seems to be less points of contact on the sole plate.

Feb 11, 2013 zelda

luv these shoes...

Mar 24, 2013 Relate2Videos

If I had one wish, it would be for a pair of these in an 11

May 12, 2013 camaro126

This shoe just had an incredible style! Too bad so sad... Probably was presented at a time when Soap wasn't marketing themselves properly and were losing popularity.

May 12, 2013 Relate2Videos

If you check the thread explaining it, it was heelys fault. Lack of retail or interest had little to nothing to do with it.

May 12, 2013 zelda

Yeah heelys ruined soap shoes, just for their cruddy fad. Not like those dumb kids care that heelys was bought out, big surprise. Most of us are heart broken about soap shoes, having a pair of these would be unreal. Someone needs to buy the patents from that stupid company that bought out hsl.

Please record yourself sliding in these for tHr3 Derek!

Jun 3, 2015 Sambonie1
