Grindplate: Curb Buster

The Forklifts are a great looking, good performing and tough shoe. The Forklifts feature 4 exfoliant bars running up the outsides and insides of each shoe. These bars are to protect your shoe from becoming scuffed or ripped while doing tricks requiring you to lean on the sides of your shoes, such as royales, UFOs and braking on a rail. To add to the universal quality of the Forklifts, they come stock with replacable Curb Buster grind plates, which can tear up rough surfaces such as ledges extremely well, yet the design of the Curb Busters allows for good control on rails too. The Forklifts were only available for purchase at Pacific Sunwear.

-Black/Gold (there is only 1 known pair of this color scheme)

a few years ago this wouldve competed well in the market for overy sized skateshoes like the original D3s. i swear every little skate grom wore those damn D3s...they werent even practicle to skate in!

Pelase don't kill me, but I think they look fine. But there's a little bit of high-toppage going on...

May 22, 2006 Mart

I think they look alright. A bit moon boot-ish but otherwise quite nice

Jun 11, 2006 AnthoFlex

Whoes gonna kill you? They DO look fine....to me, only the side view makes it look like "Moon Boots".....if you look at the thumbnail on the top right.....they look fine

P.S. I have that only pair of Black/Gold ones, hahaha. You can see me using them in Cornell Demo 2. I think that's the only time I've ever worn them.

Oct 27, 2006 SonicSoaper

Some excellent kicks. Curse you and your endorsements Brooks! :p

Feb 22, 2007 AnthoFlex

Wow Derek thats great, Having tons of Soapshoes you don't use, i think thats funny.

Well, if i had 70 pairs of Soapshoes i'd probably do the same

Feb 22, 2007 matrix8967

I wish i was sponsered by soap. but it'll probably never happen because HSL doesn't care about arkansas. but I still support hard. spread the word. tell all my friends. buy soaps for people. i'm just proud to have been around when all this revival stuff has been happening. seeing the birth of the sonicandpals and the myspace. all that stuff. good job everyone. support hard.


Feb 22, 2007 AnthoFlex

Dude, if they sponsored to Rock-stars from a dead state like kansas, im pretty sure they'll sponsor you.....arkansas is kansas with an "AR" in front of it....lol

But seriously, they WOULD sponsor you

Feb 22, 2007 matrix8967

I hope so, soon, i'm gonna make a vid with my express. on that rail i showed. stuff like that. me and my friend...he can jump higher than me, but i can do better tricks. i dont even want money or free stuff, i just want to help soap. it's part of my childhood. it's part of my adolecense and part of my adulthood.


Mar 31, 2007 Slider388

don't look bad at all!

Mar 31, 2007 pepsi

yeah, they look kinda cool

Apr 13, 2007 rhinoskater30

yeah, i like these cuz i like the daggits

Apr 13, 2007 rhinoskater30

possibly a sonic type shoe

Apr 14, 2007 SonicSoaper

Nah. It looks to barfy to be a Sonic shoe.

Apr 14, 2007 Surfaced

what the hell is a sonic shoe?? Sonic only had one Soap shoe, the Scorcher! Damn, kids! Get it through your heads! Stop drawing these retarded connections and saying "omg this shoe totally influenced his shoes!!11!!eleven!11!!one". His Soaps were the Scorcher. He only had Scorchers. End of the story. Shut the hell up.

Apr 14, 2007 Mart

Easy David...

Apr 14, 2007 SonicSoaper

Dude, really. That was totally uncalled for.

Apr 14, 2007 AnthoFlex

its ok David, its ok....*pats on back*

Apr 14, 2007 RamenRadio


Apr 14, 2007 RamenRadio

That wasn't cool....

Apr 14, 2007 RamenRadio

And as a matter of fact, I think I see what he means by how this shoe could be a shoe sonic would wear. Looking close by where the plate is, it's curved kinda cool. I think that would kinda be sonic's style

Apr 14, 2007 rhinoskater30

thanx for backing me up there

Apr 14, 2007 RamenRadio

No prob man, a comment like that should not be hated on :)

Apr 18, 2007 Tasslehoff

why call em forklift???

Apr 27, 2007 rhinoskater30

I dunno, but maybe cuz theyre heavy duty, or they pick u up when ur down!!! Nah that the last one, thats gay

Sep 10, 2007 AnthoFlex

I dunno, but i would really like to call up some pacsun's and see if they have some in my size in their underground throw-away bin or sumthing. These shoes look pretty awesome

Sep 10, 2007 SpiderSoaper

of always thought of that, that if i ever went to the back of a pacsun or journeys, where they keep al the shoes, that i will encounter a box of soaps and whole lot of grindplates

Sep 10, 2007 AnthoFlex

I know the little shits in both Utopia's (store name) here in NY have both grindplates and stickers but have no "real reason" to take em out of the basement storage and sell em to me and my friends

Sep 10, 2007 Altman

He's right. Those "inhibited" retards are holding out.

Sep 10, 2007 RamenRadio

That just pisses me off. One of these days I'm going to go over there with a search warrant, I swear to god. It's just making me so mad that they have some stuff there and they won't sell it

Sep 10, 2007 Page645

damn right they are! i say we steal all their soaps and burn those fucking places to the ground!!1 to eternity in hell with those fucking emo bitchs!!!

Sep 10, 2007 Altman

Uh, that's just a little too extreme. Besides, they did have some pretty underground stuff.

Sep 10, 2007 RamenRadio

No it's not extreme if they refuse to even show anything they have.

Sep 11, 2007 Altman

It's extreme if your goal is to commit arson, a major felony.

Sep 11, 2007 RamenRadio

If I have a search warrant, how am I committing arson? think before you hate, Mr. Express

Sep 11, 2007 RamenRadio

And before everyone yells about hating on express or whatever, we should probably drop the convo

Sep 11, 2007 rhinoskater30

I'm gonna have to try calling PacSun. Just maybe...

Sep 11, 2007 Altman

How am I hating when I'm not even talking about your post?

Sep 11, 2007 Megashadow77

You guys chill, I think Altman was sorta saying "Uh, that's just a little too extreme. Besides, they did have some pretty underground stuff." in a fun sense. Just cuz he hates a lot, doesn't mean everything he says is hating.

Sep 11, 2007 Page645

ding ding ding! megashadow wins the megamillions jackpot!!!!!!!

Sep 11, 2007 RamenRadio

Next time maybe he shouldn't sound like an asshole then

Sep 11, 2007 Page645

well he did sound a little harsh but u cant forget its the internet almost everything sounds harsh at one point XD

Sep 11, 2007 Altman

Oh excuse my sounding like an asshole. It's not like talking about committing a crime during these screwed up times is normal or anything. And in terms of a search warrant which is something I haven't even mentioned, wouldn't you need to be a police officer to receive one? And even then you would have to stand in front of a judge and give a valid reason on why you need the warrant.

Sep 11, 2007 Page645

due forget it its over drop it please SG is starting to shape up u dont want it to fall so soon do ya?

Sep 11, 2007 Page645


Sep 11, 2007 Altman

No. I'd just like to figure out why everybody thinks I'm some sort of hate-monger.

Sep 11, 2007 Altman

*No, I don't want it to fall

Sep 11, 2007 RamenRadio

what the hell is going on now?

Sep 11, 2007 Page645

well like i said b4 its the internet alot of things sound like hate and dude dont worry ppl think ur a hate-monger and ppl think im spam XD

Sep 11, 2007 Megashadow77

Yeah, just because a retard monkey could be him in a spelling bee. XD

Sep 11, 2007 iwantsoapshoes

you americans and your spelling bees.....:(

Feb 14, 2008 Revengasaur

These are silly.

Feb 14, 2008 Kain

Eh.....they're ok.......could be a little darker....

Feb 14, 2008 Revengasaur

Not like the sheer eye rape of some late model soaps, (Viva L.V. Turntables) but definitely pretty bad.

Feb 25, 2008 Surfaced

Im still watching for a size 12/13 pair of these like a hawk. Some 8s are on eBay right now, great condition.

Feb 26, 2008 Soapdreamer

I guess they are pretty cool looking.
A bunch of new shoes are having funkier designs
and this will not stick out in minds as an ugly shoe as it may have before as the other people commented.
Good luck with the ebay.

Feb 26, 2008 teamheelz

i like em! I like the colors and the design.

Feb 26, 2008 Kain

Feb 26, 2008 Spano565

Now that's a nice heavy duty soap shoe.

Jun 30, 2008 Altman

I love these shoes. They are without a doubt one of the best looking pairs of Soaps I have ever owned.

Dec 18, 2008 Altman

Not to mention the Curb Busters look awesome and grind while when used with these.

Dec 18, 2008 Altman

*grind well

Oct 12, 2012 rcondit

All i can say is wow i didnt expect these to perform so well i just got them today and the curb busters lock on very nicely and the shoes are super light they are not(as)ugly in person.If i had one complaint it would be the kinda high top bugs me alittle but nothing u cant ignore.

Apr 26, 2013 Revengasaur

If I were a snorlax, I'd wear these.

Sep 25, 2013 mcgrinder2011

Personally, I think the moon-boot design is pretty cool. Reminds me of a futuristic mirrors edge like shoe, only with a thicker sole.

Jan 30, 2015 Waffle

Any pic of the gold 1s?

Jan 31, 2015 mcgrinder2011

Gold ones?

Jan 31, 2015 Waffle

Yea. Broox has em.

Feb 1, 2015 mcgrinder2011

Of course Derek has 'em. I think he has every unreleased model of shoes.

Feb 1, 2015 Waffle

Kinda jelly.

Feb 4, 2015 mcgrinder2011

Very Jelly.

Feb 4, 2015 Waffle

Yea ofc rare Soaps are the shit!
