how do u buy these shoes?

Apr 25, 2006 Surfaced

I'd watch eBay. If you are lucky, you could find them in a physical store in say, a mall, but that is highly unlikely.

Aug 4, 2006 Kile

go to rollerwarehouse.com or mtbz.com or skate-connection.com
many websites to order soap shoes from.

how do you buy these shoes?

Nov 8, 2006 hoboboxstealer

can i buy them here

Nov 8, 2006 Curtinator

No unless someone here has a Ebay account and is selling them. But yeah look on ebay, someone might be selling them. Or find some other website. Good luck on your search for these shoes.

where can i buy these shoes anywhere but ebay

Nov 12, 2006 hoboboxstealer

in size 11

Nov 12, 2006 Krammit

It's rare to find them anywhere but ebay, most stores that have them, have very little, and usually only have size 7 and 8 for some reason.

I really wish HSL didn't discontinue this model... I love both the gray and the white color schemes.

Dec 9, 2006 Surfaced

And the black one looks so much like the original Scab.

Feb 2, 2007 AnthoFlex

I really dunt like the look too much of the Grooves....they look...i dunno....ehh

Feb 3, 2007 matrix8967

yeah...they look like all the other ones to me...maybe because they are from the sole down.

Worst looking Soapshoes ever released, hands down

Mar 6, 2007 Slidey

lol I agree, what a wierd design

Mar 31, 2007 Surfaced

Take another look at the Slice and Chaos/Nitro and then tell me the Groove is the worst looking.

Mar 31, 2007 RamenRadio

Maybe if I look at the chaos, but I'm pretty stuck on the nitro being the worst lol. But I'm not sure how different this shoe is compared to the express or chaos

Mar 31, 2007 sam

I think nitro and slice probably look the worst, I dunno why but I like the white color scheme.

Mar 31, 2007 AnthoFlex

The Groove is the ugliest Soapshoe ever....ugh

Mar 31, 2007 matrix8967

that side swoop is from the scab...

Mar 31, 2007 AnthoFlex

...and Praba...

Mar 31, 2007 matrix8967

yeah...i just read the description @_@ i don't think scabs and prabas should be mixed.

Mar 31, 2007 AnthoFlex

its a tri-shoe really....

HSL Sole, Scam/Praba body....i think the Groove is the only shoe that ive seen that HSL try to give a cool description to besides the typical "PU midsole, sockliner, bullshit"

and they still made it sound stupid...

im trying to find the description...it was on google somewhere....when i find it, i'll post it here

Mar 31, 2007 Mart

Dude, all they're doing is providing information on the materials used in the shoe; if you read the descriptions of the Artemis Soaps, you'll see all kinds of things like this mentioned. There's no need for you to keep on and on about how dumb you think it is; once is enough, we get the point

Mar 31, 2007 AnthoFlex


PU Midsole Sockliner... come on, even if they tell us, noone is gonna care, lighten up dude, its Spring Break, have a little fun...

Do you need a hug? Haha, im just messing with you Mart

Mar 31, 2007 kobansora

Renny (can I call you that lol) I find that information pretty useful. I mean, where else would I find that the shoe is made of SUEDE and I accidentally clean it with some other kind of cleaner.


Mar 31, 2007 AnthoFlex

Woah, i didnt even see that, i just paid attention to these series of weird letters and such, ma bad.

I probably didnt see that because i never clean my Soapshoes....i dunno why

And dude, you can call me Renny, why not?

Mar 31, 2007 matrix8967

I clean mine with a tooth brush I stole from my orthodontist...they had a big bucket of them, so i stole one and i was like "that'll be good to get deep inside the bores of the screws and stuff..."

These where my fist pair of soaps. They where ok but the inside of the shoe in the heel area wore out very quick. And all I did back then was frontsides on small stuff. They still only lasted me like 6 months.

Jul 17, 2007 skater036

i did not know what these shoes looked like at first so i was thinking they looked like 70's shoes so i did not see them at first then i clicked on them cuz i looked at all the other shoes and got board and now i need them i will make my mom by them or i'll be really mad at her and go crazy like i did on this one kid

Jul 17, 2007 skater036

some of the stuff i wrote in the last comment is kinda mested up i didn't look back at it so some of it is mested up

Mar 1, 2008 Hattmac02

i know ur suppose to comment about the shoes in here but today i was shopping around for soaps and found


they have grooves in a lot of sizes

Dec 13, 2009 Timuukun

Yeah...that site is defunct. It's actually pretty subtle, too: you can get all the way up to the billing info statement in the order form, but when you get there...*poof!* There's nowhere to enter a credit card number.

It's a shame, really.

I really forgot how nice these look.

Jun 28, 2013 Revengasaur

These do look pretty nice, wish I had a pair. Maybe my favorite of the express style shoes.
