Grindplate: Speedster

The Scorchers are probably the lightest most "rail friendly" shoes that Soap has released. It was meant to be fast and light, and thats just what it is. The Scorcher's uppers are designed with extra mesh and the shoe has an ultra light sole. Scorchers feature the non-replacable Speedster grind plate, which grinds fast and smooth. The plate also features a built in brake bar, for when you need to control your speed.

-Red (red / white / grey)
-Blue (blue / black / white)
-Yellow/Black (yellow / black / grey / white)

Sizes: 3-13 (Blue came in 14)

where can i get these

Mar 14, 2006 kiddisaster

yeh i def wanna pick up a pair too, maybe if we get em at the same time we ll get a discount.... hah

Mar 18, 2006 Louis

These are deffinatly my favourite shoes. Very good lock on, good tweaking ability, the plates are just the right speed, the brakes actually work if you can tweak your ankles far enough, theyre super light (in comparison to my Cleans), very breathable material, very comfortable (almost like normal trainers), they look decent and pass as a normal pair of shoes.

hey r there ne more of these i that i could get... if so can neone tell me where i can get these?!

Apr 6, 2006 Surfaced

Apr 13, 2006 skbgsky

hey louis how did u get ur cleans? and were in a size 6-7

Apr 21, 2006 Louis

I bought my first pair of cleans in about 1998 or 99 or something, when every size existed, so there is a very high chance they were a uk 7....., i also have another pair which are a uk 10....not that it matters cos i aint parting with them, even if they dont fit me they are a relic of my youth that i shall pass on to my grand children

Apr 24, 2006 Surfaced

BTW, AnthoFlex, do you still want Scorchers? What shoe size are you?

Apr 24, 2006 James

I just Got an e-mail back from a seller on eBay who may have Scorchers in size 11.

Apr 24, 2006 James

If so I will surely buy them.

Apr 24, 2006 Surfaced

You are a 9. I talked to a fellow yesterday who has almost every style in 9.

Apr 24, 2006 AnthoFlex

i'm a 10...lolz but i can gladly wear 11's or 9's...I want Scorchers...please help me surfaced

Apr 24, 2006 James

If you e-mail stevedeel@sbcglobal.net I think but am not sure he has Scorchers.

Jun 4, 2006 Tyro

Does Steve Deel still have scorchers? Just wondering. Thanks

Jun 4, 2006 Surfaced

Nope. I would have listed them. He probably did a while back, though.

Jun 6, 2006 Dkizzle09

there was a perfect size 10 red scorchers aka sonic soap shoes on ebay and i bid like literally 30 bids and some fukn homo won i got my ass beat by my parents for skipping school

Jun 6, 2006 Go2Crew

Sorry guys,
The last pair of Scorchers I had available for purchase was in like 2004. Its a shame HSL didn't repeat on the style: its light-weight, durable, and stealth (looks like a regular athletic shoe to the un-initiated). I love the pair of size nines I have worn for about five years. Last year the adhesive cement finally gave out and I dropped a plate in the middle of Boston's Logan Airport. Thank god for Shoe Goo in a tube! It works well on the Flow's Impact Plate, too.
Regards, Steve.

Jun 6, 2006 Surfaced

This might be a record here... the Scorchers that were just on ebay went for over 200 USD.

Jun 6, 2006 AnthoFlex

DAMN!! thats insane.....but well thats what you can expect....they're Scorchers.....i just wish that for only a few minutes.....i can try out the Speedster plates....

Jun 13, 2006 Dkizzle09

yup... that was me but then some jackass bid like 230 USDs

Jun 22, 2006 Nytmare

Guys can you order scorchers on this website?

Jun 22, 2006 AnthoFlex

NO......this IS NOT a shop....this is a kick-ass SoapShoes info site....and forum...dunt ask where can you buy these, or the price, or do they sell these here on Solidgrind....leave those quesiotns for the forum

Jun 22, 2006 Nytmare

Man u swear alot

Jun 22, 2006 Nytmare

Well were can you getem

Jun 22, 2006 Slidey

GO TO THE FORUM TO ASK THAT QUESTION!!! didn't AnthoFlex just tell you that!

Jun 22, 2006 AnthoFlex

Hey nytmare guy.....i DO swear a lot, i know that....but im really a nice guy...i honestly do not know why i curse so much....sorry if i offended you....but seriously, ask questions in the forum

Jun 23, 2006 SapAuthor

swearing is overrated. Plus if your a christian, it kind of makes you hypocrytical in others' eyes, since it's like "follow god" then swear, which isn't.

Jun 23, 2006 Mart

...overrated? Since when was swearing cool in the first place?

Jun 25, 2006 Solace

Ohh man are these scorchers great i just won a bid on EBAY for 230 usd on some red size 10 scorchers my lay in waiting stragy was tight i played those fools for all they were worth.

Jun 25, 2006 Mart

Congratulations, you're the owner of the most expensive pair of Soaps known to man

Jun 25, 2006 Solace

yeah but worth every penny.

Jun 25, 2006 AnthoFlex

NIce shoes.......>$200.00 i would do it...not worth it for me....who agrees? who disagrees? find out next time on....DRAGONBALL Z! *music plays: de de dhuhu dhuedh....lolz

Jun 25, 2006 Louis

Just thought i'd rub salt into an open wound and let you all know i bought my UK10 Scorchers for £15.....thats about $30.....expensive, yes, but they were worth every single penny, all 1500 pennies.

Jun 26, 2006 AnthoFlex

LMFAO! and Louis still got it!! Lmao...i honestly would have to say the MOST i would pay for Scorchers is.........$60.00

Jun 26, 2006 Slidey

Jun 26, 2006 Slidey

$200?!? thats crazy talk! I bought my last sk8s for about £130

Jun 26, 2006 AnthoFlex

ummmm........im confused, what are you trying to say?.....That ur proud that u payed that much or "You think thats a lot?!? I payed £130 for MY SK8S?.....So u payed $236 for your In-lines......I dunt In-line, but i think thats a BIT too much for a pair of In-lines....

Jun 26, 2006 Mart

Well since our currencies are so different of course £130 is going to seem like alot for skates. Over here it's nothing, really; the latest skates would set you back £200-£250 easily. However, also consider that a pair of skate shoes over here costs around £50-£80 max, so $200 is alot for a pair of shoes by anyone's standards

Aug 4, 2006 SonicSoaper

Holy crap, AnthoFlex, you're right! These are Sonic's Soaps from SA2!

Aug 4, 2006 Surfaced

Yep... pretty much everyone knows that.

Aug 5, 2006 SonicSoaper

Do they still make these shoes?

Aug 5, 2006 Mart

No, they don't. From reading the comments you should have seen that they don't

Aug 5, 2006 SonicSoaper

Oh well.

Aug 6, 2006 Ryozox

Lol, the black and yellow ones look like Sora's shoes from KH2. Sorta..

Aug 7, 2006 SonicSoaper

Yeah, they kinda do.

Aug 7, 2006 expressoaper

yo if anyones lookin for soaps check ebay 1st...a pair of blue schorcher just went for 30$ and i bought a pair of express for 20

Aug 7, 2006 AnthoFlex

wtf? r u serious? what size were the scorchers?

Aug 7, 2006 expressoaper

size 10 i beleive

Aug 7, 2006 Mart

You're talking shit, there haven't been any Scorchers on eBay for a while now

Aug 7, 2006 AnthoFlex

He probably meant the septums....or maybe he is just talking shit

Aug 7, 2006 expressoaper

hey my bad they were septums......but ebay is still a good place 2 check

Aug 15, 2006 SapAuthor

if you do see them on ebay though, good luck getting them, they usually sell for mucho dinero. last pair sold for over 200.

Aug 15, 2006 XSIVE7

DARN U DARN UUUUUUUUUUUU Solace i though i owned the most exorbant priced shoe! Ohh well but i know i got the most exorbant inlinez CORR ATA 700 ADVANCE $250-299 mines r size 11 so it cost a bit more PS AnthoFlex u sayed something about DBZ before do u watch anime? if so talk to me in the forum.

Aug 15, 2006 AnthoFlex

i USED to watch it....back when i was like 13.....i just said that to make it funny.....read it more closely, u'll see what i mean

Aug 20, 2006 Locke

Hmm... I saw a pair of these at K-mart a couple yers back for $40, but I had no idea what Soap was. The only thing I'm speculative about with this design (and any other with non-replaceable plates) is, what do you do when the plates are worn to the point that you can't use them any more?

Aug 20, 2006 Mart

...not grind in them?

Aug 20, 2006 AnthoFlex

YEa...But to make sure that that doesnt happen to quickly, try not to use ur Scorchers for Ledges too much....or ROUGH ledges for that matter, itt'll kill ur plates faster than on a rail

Oct 14, 2006 SPSR

I have two pairs of these they are the best soap shoe ever. i have one in blue and one in red (the red on is my baby.)

Nov 28, 2006 Kru

holy crap theres a size 12 pair on ebay right now and yes they are red.

Nov 28, 2006 AnthoFlex

Ok, The saying that stuff on ebay has got to stop.....Let people find out that they are on by themselves

Nov 28, 2006 Kru

okay then. Sorry to help. I'll just wonder on.

Nov 28, 2006 matrix8967

If it wasnt for kru saying that I'd never have my broadsides. I think it's a good idea. but to compramise, i guess we could do it in the forum?


Nov 28, 2006 AnthoFlex

Stupid fucking computer.....i was going to say put it in the forum when my modem exploded.....ok, it didnt explode, it just stopeed working, so just chill Kru

Jan 29, 2007 siuol7

You have got to be shitting me I watch ebay every fucking day to hope some kick ass soaps come up and when they do I dont have any money even my fucking size to!!!!!!!!!!!!

Jan 30, 2007 guero12

Maybe this won't be the only pair of Scorchers we'll see on ebay. Last pair of SOAP Scorchers on ebay sold for more than $200, pretty good if you sell a pair.

Jan 30, 2007 AnthoFlex

Haven't we gone through this?!

Stop posting Ebay auctions in the comments section......damnit

Jan 30, 2007 siuol7

yea i noticed i shouldn't have said that here just after i commented

Jan 30, 2007 AnthoFlex

Its all good

Mar 1, 2007 AnthoFlex

my stupid Yellow/Black Scorchers are defected...

The Speedster plate on the foot that i brake on is wider than normal, it covers most of that beautiful brake bar

Mar 1, 2007 SonicSoaper

That's not good. Did you try doing something about it?

Mar 1, 2007 Slidey

Damn, thats bad. T

Mar 1, 2007 AnthoFlex

I did, but it didnt help,

i tried carving some of it out, but it still isnt enough....oh well, i guess i'll just brake using the inside, which is harder for me

Mar 1, 2007 Slidey

Trust me I know how much a brake bar is essential for vert rails. It's just with new or rare shoes like the Scorcher you just dont wana ruin the grindplate to get that option of slowing down

Mar 1, 2007 AnthoFlex

Im just sooo damn pissed about it....actually, gimme a few minutes, imma take a pic of what i mean

Mar 1, 2007 Slidey

tbh I would never try that, brakeing a different way than you usually do would be soo risky on dangerous rails. And doing UFOs/Royales without touching the brake pad will make you go faster

Mar 1, 2007 AnthoFlex

This first one shows the plate (that i dunt use for braking)


This next one shows a close up of the same brake bar (the one that i dunt brake with)


This last one shows the brake bar that i NEED to brake with but i cant. The green circle shows what i carved off, but it didnt help


Mar 1, 2007 AnthoFlex

As you can see, the brake bar that i need to use wont come into contact with the rail, no matter how far i tweak....

you can also see that the brake bar that i NEED to use cant be because the plate level is higher than it is......

Anyone wanna buy this pair of Scorchers?
They're making me sick...

Mar 1, 2007 AnthoFlex

haha, im just kidding, i don't sell my Soapshoes....its disrespectful

Mar 1, 2007 Go2Crew

Renny, check both plates for measurement (width and length) simularity. Your photo looks like a factory defect where they glued the next size larger plate on one half of the pair. Is overlap on the other side of that half-pair excessive also? If so, that's most likely the error. --Steve

Mar 1, 2007 AnthoFlex

i know its a factory defect. On my right shoe *the one that i brake with* it sticks out more to the side.

im going to measure it now, as soon as i can find the tape measure

Mar 1, 2007 AnthoFlex

oh wtf....they are the same size!

I think they glued it to far to one side

Mar 1, 2007 RamenRadio

That doesn't effect your soaping, does it?

Mar 1, 2007 Go2Crew

Hey Renny,
If they just glued it to far to one side, that's actually a better deal for you. Screwdriver or pry bar it loose and then reattach with:
1) Neoprene cement (if you can find it)
2) Shoe Goo, or
3) Contact cement as a last choice!
Don't forget to clamp the plate in place until the glue cures for a good adhesive bond. --- Steve

Mar 1, 2007 AnthoFlex

If i pry it apart, wouldnt it destroy the shoe?

Oh by the way, i sen tyou an email a little while ago, i hope you got it..

and Travis, it doesnt affect my Soaping, its just when i wanna hit vert rails, i cant brake on it

Mar 1, 2007 RamenRadio

ouch, but I think it's still awesome to have them.

Mar 1, 2007 AnthoFlex

They are pretty cool.....I say they act just as great as the Express, but the upper look and sole looks sick.

Although i dunt have the red ones, i do kinds feel like Sonic i guess

Mar 1, 2007 RamenRadio

I want a pair badly. I'd die if I were to find a pair in 11, 12, or 13 lol

Mar 1, 2007 SonicSoaper

If you don't feel like Sonic, then you can feel like a Sonic re-color.

Mar 24, 2007 rhinoskater30

I see in some pictures that the brake bar above the plate goes all the way to the back of the plate instead of where it is. What's up with that?!

Mar 24, 2007 Surfaced

I've seen those too...I think that looked better. The shoes had a faster, more aggressive look.

Mar 24, 2007 AnthoFlex

Yea, a Brake bar like that looks soo much better, i have a Scorcher like that, its Steve's old Blue ones

Mar 24, 2007 SonicSoaper

They's still vury nice shoes.

Mar 30, 2007 guero12

Hey after the Brodsides how about we work
towards getting the Scorchers back.

Mar 30, 2007 Slider388

Hells yeah man but let's do it one at a time...

Mar 30, 2007 snikas

great idea i love these shoes

Mar 30, 2007 pepsi

heh, nice idea

Apr 13, 2007 rhinoskater30

Guero 12, ur not sonic, and neither am I....i got the shoes because they LOOKED like his, and that was cool, i didnt wann be him...freak...and i bet u just wear them for looks and to SHOW OFF. if ur that into it i got mine before you cuz i got them right when they came out...whats ur fav. trick?????

Apr 13, 2007 rhinoskater30

oh yeah...and...when did you get and how many sonic games did u actually have, i have had literally all of them, not counting the mega collection for ps2 or anything

Apr 14, 2007 sam

Rhinoskater, This is not a sonic the hedgehog website. And stop bitching over everything too.

Apr 14, 2007 AnthoFlex

haha, Rhino got owned....not really, oh well

Im thinking of selling my size 9 Scorchers.....any 9's interested?

Apr 14, 2007 SonicSoaper

I thought you were giving them to Keith.

Apr 14, 2007 AnthoFlex

Like i said, im not too sure what i wanna do with them yet... They werent really what i expected when i got em....to be quite honest, i dunt really use em at all! haha

Apr 14, 2007 Zhowulf

May 20, 2007 Megashadow77

hey, what's that supposed to mean?

May 20, 2007 AnthoFlex

It means ur obsessed with Scorchers, i think

May 20, 2007 SonicSoaper

Every newbie sees the Scorchers and goes "I WANT THOSE!" It's an epidemic in the Soap community.

May 20, 2007 RamenRadio

No, not newbies, and don't call him that man, the scorchers are a nice looking shoe. :D
I'd want a pair of scorchers for the design, but I"m a little concerned as to how well they grind.

May 20, 2007 Megashadow77

I'm sorry that I see a shoe with, from what I've heard, a fast plate, and a nice design, and think it would be good to have.

I'm also sorry that liking something that checks out to me as something I would like makes me a newbie.

May 21, 2007 AnthoFlex

Megashadow, they are just messin with ya, everyone here is family

May 21, 2007 Megashadow77

Oh, okay, Sorry. I'm not used to that.
I come from Gamefaqs, a place where everyone is a total dick.

May 21, 2007 SonicSoaper

Totally understandable.

Yea, Gamefags....good codes, awesome site, but dickheads raom the messageboards

They're like Nazis over there.

May 30, 2007 MusicSoaper

Man, it really would've really paid to buy these when i was like 7 seven years old.

May 30, 2007 Megashadow77

I want them cuz I've heard they go fast.
And as the wise RIcky Bobby said...
I wanna go fast.

May 31, 2007 RamenRadio

Such a shame... I'd love these shoes.

Jul 8, 2007 RamenRadio

ZOMG SCORCHERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!! XD

Jul 9, 2007 Megashadow77

New Soapers go through this phase....as I know I did...

And then....ZOMG BROADSIDESZZ!!!!!!!!!!!!!11111111111111111111

Jul 20, 2007 SapAuthor

lol, votes for this shoe are coming in as well, hopefully we'll get both shoes out, i think with that we would be set for a looong while, having low cost express, fast scorcher, and versitile broadside.

Jul 20, 2007 AnthoFlex

With the way votes are shooting in for this shoes, we should just get the Express discontinued for both the Broadside and Scorcher

Jul 21, 2007 mets603412

thats awesome did i put one in yet i think i did

Jul 25, 2007 graybass20x6

As a 'newb', I can honestly say I didn't shoot for these shoes off the bat. Or the Broadsides, for that matter.

There is explanation to this though; Realistically, I could never find these in my size.

Awesome looking shoe though; just glancing at them, they look like normal running shoes.

Jul 25, 2007 Page645

i see wat u mean by normal running shoes. i never noticed hat. nice catch there buddy

Jul 25, 2007 Page645

noticed that*

Jul 25, 2007 ShadowX

i know i sound real noobish and stupid when saying this but any1 able to sell me a pair?
im only a 9 in size but yeah.... i cant find any real type of soap set except the express
and scorchers look nice.

Jul 25, 2007 ShadowX

i hear they do great seeing previous comments lol

Jul 25, 2007 ShadowX

sry probably shoulda posted in forum?

Jul 25, 2007 RamenRadio


If you want a pair of scorchers, take a look at that forum topic :)

Jul 25, 2007 ShadowX

k thx

Sep 4, 2007 RamenRadio

Mark my words scorchers, you will be released.

I really wish my express would magically turn into a random pair of scorchers. Any pair, blue, red, yellow and black, ANY of them damn it!

Sep 9, 2007 Hermes2722

They should re-release these this year for the 10th anniversary of Soaps!

Sep 10, 2007 AnthoFlex

The release of these shoes was July of 00 i believe

Sep 13, 2007 soapbofo

I've seen different pictures of these shoes.
whats up with the ones that got the brake bar extended over the plate. were those early ones made and then the ones don't have the brake bar extended are those modifications or what? does anyone kno?

Sep 13, 2007 Page645

who knows wat ur saying could be the other way around soapbofo

Sep 14, 2007 AnthoFlex

I have a pair of Scorchers with that original brake bar. Yea, it extended into the sole. I personally think it looked better like that

Sep 20, 2007 SpiderSoaper

i know that nobody likes saying wat shoes are on ebay, but fuk it, u size sevens out there are lucky, there are some blue ones on ebay at the moment, and i gotta say that they look even cooler

Sep 20, 2007 AnthoFlex

AJ called dibbs on those already, so any size 7's, please back off

Sep 20, 2007 Megashadow77

I'm gonna buy them just for decoration in my room.

Sep 20, 2007 RamenRadio

Actually, Michael and Dalton want to battle it out for them XD

Sep 20, 2007 RamenRadio

Besides, what's going on with the HSL meeting?

Sep 20, 2007 RamenRadio

We all want scorchers!

Sep 20, 2007 AnthoFlex

They aren't even size 7's so tell them to back off. AJ is a hardcore soaper, so his shoes get fucked up fast, so let him have this one.

Thats like me buying those Testerosa Goas on ebay just to "have them". Thats retarded

Sep 20, 2007 Megashadow77

dude, I was kidding.

Sep 20, 2007 RamenRadio

Trey Davis wanted AJ's goas just to have them.......

Sep 20, 2007 Megashadow77

Wait, his Express got fucked up?

Oh yeah, if forgot, he grinds a lot of ledges....

Sep 20, 2007 RamenRadio

and what's going on with the meeting.....?

Sep 20, 2007 RamenRadio


My express are already fucked up, I dunno what to do with those shoes, they hurt my feet and I can barely lockin on curbs. It's just RAILS RAILS RAILS with those shoes.

I just cant seem to try and grind on curbs unless I shave a ton of nylon off

Sep 20, 2007 RamenRadio

Renny, can you update us on the meeting in that thread you made?

If there are any updates that is

Sep 20, 2007 Altman

My Expresses are currently on my shelf. They were my favorite shoes. They've been to hell and back and are happy to be in retirement. yeah, I be wanting them Scorchers. I know never ever ever ever ever ever ever ever ever ever ever ever ever ever ever ever ever ever everX10 to use them on ledges. That's what my Goas are for after all. Seriously, that just sick and nasty to get shoes "just to have them". You guys running a zoo or something? XD

Sep 20, 2007 SpiderSoaper

wat did ever happen to that meeting anyway?

Sep 27, 2007 AnthoFlex

If we ever get these re-released, imma request that:

Red Scorchers: Red Speedster
Blue Scorchers: Black Speedster
Yellow Scorchers: Yellow Speedster

Sep 27, 2007 Page645

then ima get yellow

Sep 28, 2007 SpiderSoaper

those are the same shoe and plate color combonations as shown above

Sep 28, 2007 SpiderSoaper

oh wait except the black yellow shoe, it has a black plate

Sep 28, 2007 JeiHeirumaru

I swear,I want these shoes,and some sylons. My life would be complete,then

Jan 9, 2008 RamenRadio

I guess these shoes will never be back :(

Jan 9, 2008 AnthoFlex

oh shut up, you're giving up?

Jan 9, 2008 SpiderSoaper

impatient are u now?

Jan 10, 2008 RamenRadio

Giving up? I'm upset because the scorchers aren't out. That's giving up?

Jan 10, 2008 SpiderSoaper

giving up hope i think he meant

Jan 10, 2008 RamenRadio

I know, but I say anything about giving up.

I just really want these or broadsides out.

I just sent Steve an idea for a brand new model. Imma wait and see if he thinks its worth showing HSL.

The materials it uses aren't "cost sensitive" (what HSL is afraid of) because it'll be using the same material from the express. -NOT THE SAME LOOK, SAME MATERIALS- But before i go any deeper than that, i'll wait for a response from Steve.

Featuring.... The speedster plate :D

Jan 10, 2008 SpiderSoaper

i hope the plate dosent use express material.....Zytel plastic i think is good

Jan 10, 2008 RamenRadio

Renny Might mean the actual shoe is made from express material, maybe not the plastic of the grind plates.

Jan 10, 2008 AnthoFlex

Well, most soaps have suede and mesh...thats what i meant.

And i dunno why ur downing the express plate spider. I love the express plate, it slides really well. Although i have to say, you need to wear in a groove like mine does for you to REALLY start enjoying the express. Because even i can admit that express plates are a little iffy when new. But snag up a groove like mine, and you'll be really happy

Jan 10, 2008 SpiderSoaper

i like them on rails, but not concrete, when i tried the UHF branded plates, they were superior to express, i have a groove on mine, i still dont like em much

Jan 10, 2008 Megashadow77

I'm afraid to get a groove in my express....I've almost killed myself many times on handrails with them.

Jan 11, 2008 AnthoFlex

get a deep groove in your express, then go attack those handrails. This a good topic, if you wanna continue it, make a thread on the forum. This is the scorcher's comment section

Jan 11, 2008 RamenRadio

It's not a matter of grooves, it's a matter of lock-in. The express has too strict of a lockin. Sure grooves help, but that lockin just doesn't work good.

I'd only use express on rails, but nor do I trust them on high rails.

And if you do get a groove in the plate, that makes your contact with the rubber soap O in the grind plate closer and closer to what you are grinding on. Before you know it, you're hitting the soap O and going nowhere.

At least on the scorcher model, you don't have that annoying O in the grind plate that will cause you to never be able to use your shoes again. The speedster plate can take up to a lot more than express could, because once you are hitting that soap O in the shoe, you're done grinding.

Jan 11, 2008 AnthoFlex

the "O" issue has yet to happen to me... but if it ever did, i'd either use it for speed control on vert rails, or just flatten it...i dunt see the big deal

Jan 11, 2008 RamenRadio

AJ doesn't touch his express anymore because of the "issue". He says they are on his shelf in retirement.

Mar 28, 2008 DjMerty

luv sonic's shoes( i mean scorchers...hehe) i would DEFINATELY buy one of these if they were sold!!

Apr 23, 2008 misterterse94

Apr 23, 2008 misterterse94

oh crap, where did 4 an 10 come from, my bad, 2, and 12, lol

Dec 16, 2009 sylonbroadsides

here they are, sonic's shoe

Dec 16, 2009 Brad

I'd rape Eggman ten thousand times just for an hour with a pair of these.

Dec 16, 2009 Tedd

I would too. *Checks site* Damn, not up there. Oh well. I'll have to see if I can find some of those online too.

Dec 16, 2009 sylonbroadsides

there has not been a pair up since 2008

Dec 16, 2009 Tedd

That's not gonna stop me from looking. I wanted to see if the one site I posted about in the other thread had them. They don't, which is unfortunate.

Dec 29, 2009 Brad

Um, if anyone feels like getting 'em for me, I'll pay 90.9694 USD. :)

Dec 29, 2009 Timuukun

A week of bidding left, eh...?

I'll have to check with the 'rents, but I might be able to forward them, at least. No promises as of yet, but I'll ask.

You could still pay for them, though. Just ship them to an American address. And send me an email so I don't forget.

Dec 30, 2009 Brad

Ehh, I'm not too sure now. I mean, too much of a hassle for a shoe that I'd have to squeeze into. Thanks for offering though.

Dec 30, 2009 Timuukun

I guess...I really want them too, but that's now going on 2/3 sizes too big for me. In my case, I'd feel like I was wearing clown shoes.

I wonder if that seller has any more...?

Dec 30, 2009 Brad

Here's hoping.

Dec 30, 2009 Revengasaur

Bidding on these... I'm a size 11 :3

Dec 30, 2009 Kooksoaper13

man 2 sizes too small *sigh* oh well

Dec 30, 2009 Timuukun

Good luck, Revengasaur. Hope you get a better deal than I did on my Expresses!

Dec 30, 2009 Brad

Revengasaur, you lucky bastard.

Dec 31, 2009 Timuukun

...and that seller doesn't have any more. Another lead down the drain. Along with that Aussie site that SUPPOSEDLY had Broadsides, which never responded.

Dec 31, 2009 Brad

Man, I could go for some size 12/13's to pop up on eBay right about now.

Jan 6, 2010 sylonbroadsides

might happen soon

Jan 6, 2010 Revengasaur

I didn't win. But whatever, somebody out there is soaping away happily.

Jan 7, 2010 Brad

Shitty deal. Oh well, at least we know that there's still avid soapers out there. How much did they go for?

Jan 7, 2010 Kooksoaper13

81 buckaroos

Jan 7, 2010 Brad

Wow, I expected a whole lot more. Whoever won it is pretty lucky.

Feb 26, 2010 Andrew

GOD I WANT THESE SOO BAD, i'd be lucky if they would ever have my size or even ship to canada

Jan 22, 2011 baconpwn

Jan 23, 2011 asiansensation

Jan 23, 2011 Brad

@bacon: Where in the fuck did you get them?
@asian: More of an eye candy model rather than an efficient one.

Jan 24, 2011 baconpwn
