USD damocles

This is the first ever usd skate from back in 1998

Notice that it is the same shell and cuff as the Razors cult series.

Never knew that they are the same mold as Cults. Would be nice custom with NIHM parts. A friend of mine used to own those. They skated really crap thanks to the shitty soulplates and frames. Weren't they released at the same time as the first thrones (the ones with the narrow lacing sytem)?

maybe the first universal skate design, but up side down had skates out before those, i think they were called daisys or something and im almost positive they were th same mold as the VII's. they were purple though, i rember when Team Paradise first got them. who rembers that joint?

hahaha is that a joke? i am really not sure if this is some kind of irony. Anyway, you posted a lot of wrong information there illthrilla. usd started out as UpSide Down and designed a skate called the 7th sign, this never came in to production. The throne and damocles released in the same year where the first skates. Later that year the name changing began. The daisys came in blue, black and grey and are the forefather of the Remz skates. They most sertenly are not the same mold as the VII

daisys... out (brand)? and there was also the out poppy ? and yes i remember ... this was when i started to rollerblade ... my first skate was the roces lowrider (baaaad frame) i rode them for 2 weeks then i get the blue classic thrones ... the very first thrones ... the throne was the best skate in 1998. it helps me alot to learn fast. the blue throne was also released under the name upsidedown ;) in 1999 i think it was USD - universal skate design
