TRS Alpha-1 Customs

I have had these a while and customized them from the inside out. These were originally a size 8 but can now accomodate 8-10 with the P0Nt3 mod. :P Inside the shell is cut really low on the inner part of shell and a little low on the outside. (Inner shell sorta resembles Remz Except that I cut out the toe on the shell.) Then cut slits into the cuff for flex. Lastly I sharpied the skate like 3 different patterns over the few years I skates em...then I just dyed em black and kept the red lining. I threw on the original frames and let me gf at em, so technically this is her setup now. -

The dye didn't work out that well did it? Why would you cut the shell so that you can change the size. If you change the size you still need a different soulplate and liner. p.s. your girlfriend has big feet.

The dye didn't always look like that, faded over the years...Oh and they are made for my feet...not hers, hence me needing to alter the size....(gottem off my friend with tiny ass size 8 feet, I'm a size 10 1/2)...I have been skating these for like 3 years but I roll deshi now.

If you alter the shell, your still stuck with a small liner and soulplate.

not true...I put on large sized soulplates and liners from my other alpha ones...I have 2 pairs of alpha ones :P I put on the soulplates skins and midsouls from my larger Alphas..they work perfect...like if TRS made made skates that actually had flex and stability. AKA I dont ride skates that are not HELLA custom cuz I think they all suck from the factory...and i mean ALL!...well...maybe not the razors boots...they all seem to rock..just need to be worked in.

Lots of flex, lots of support.

If you do it right, you should get lots of flex without the injuries that tend to come with soft boots after long sessions. Good Luck dude.

Nice dude. I've done the toe thing with all my TRS before. I did that inner side cut out with my details, I loved it. They were size 7 and I could fit my size 8 foot no problem. I also too a dremil to the inside of the toe on the midsoul, i ground it thinner and lower so the skin could stretch and it did. Worked great! Props on your cutting job.

I just noticed the cuff. Way to cut it like a Salomon.

lol I got the idea from my sti-pros. So I tried it out and worked wonders..the shell mods came later and I'm happy I did it. Now if only TRS would catch on to this design. I mean, if a couple bladers thought of it, I'm suprised a multi-million dollar company can't think up the same conclusion. Instead..they made the Downtown...fools. This design is great for those kids who love TRS and have feet still growing along with their ankle flexibility. Or if (like me) you bought them off a friend and they are just too small...or your feet are just too wide. I should make a site for skate designs (blueprints). I'm sure a lot of you got some great ideas flowing in your heads. I know I have a book full of them. Would you believe I created the "Deshi" on paper before it was made? Funny thing is, Deshi didn't catch up with my design until they made the Spizer2.
