I have four models in power-sliding
period at the powerslide kaze the power slide-out coryville which is now called
evil the power slide neck so I’m going to start ola youtube my name is ricardo lino and a wheel addict let me just switch off the AC
because it’s summer in South Africa and it’s really really hot and talking about
hot if you seen the news I can edit video the e3 well I just saw it
yesterday and I was expecting it to be good but I wasn’t expecting it to be
that good it’s seriously amazing so if you haven’t seen the newest VOD was done
by Vincent they got from Anglo sirs and wheat organs brother so it went to Japan
and it’s it’s seriously seriously amazing so if you haven’t seen that one
make sure you check that one now going straight to the point why I’m making
this video I usually have a lot of questions of people asking how do these
gates feet are they bigger or smaller so I guess the easiest way to make a video
comparing the sizes of the powerslide urban skates and for that I’m going to
be using these four models we have four models here so I got the power slide
Imperial at the power slide kaze the power slide art coryville which is not
called evil the power slide next so I’m going to start with the power slide next
and before I even talk about the sizing of this skate you should know that yes I
did say that I was going to make a review about this skate and I was going
to skate it for four weeks and I did not forget about it but you should also know
that I got three different pairs of the power slide next before they came out
but since they came out I still don’t have the production model I’m still
waiting on the final model which should be here in the next few weeks and I
guess it’s just not fair for you and for powerslide that i’m doing a review on a
skate which is not the finished version so give me a few more weeks I will make
the review the next gate and yes I’m going to be as
honest as I can about this gate but at the moment it just doesn’t make sense
but the sizing didn’t change from the first sample that I got to the final
product it’s the same so talking about the sizing of this gate it’s actually
something that I like a lot about the powerslide neck so most of the
powerslide art boot skates on the market are dual size which means that they are
of course as the name says dual size as an example my size is a European 40
treat if I get powerslide next it I will need to buy a 42 43 which means that the
shell the outside plastic is 40 42 and 43 and the liner on the inside expands
so this makes it easier for skate shops to carry more skates which I really
appreciated having a skate shop over here these boot being a 43 42 and 43
fits a little bit wider than the powerslide Imperial which is 43 and 44
what can I say whenever people ask me about the next they have a much wider
toe box than the imperials which is for some people one of the reasons is why
they don’t like the imperials but at the same time it’s for me one of the main
reasons why like they build so much that slim look this is a 42 43 and this is a
43 44 so the sizes are not really the same so this would be 40 41 42 43 44 45
and 46 47 this one would be 41 42 43 44 and 45 46 the powerslide next come up to
a bigger size than the imperials also like I just said the power slide next
have a wider toe box so if you have a wide foot this will be the skate for you
other than that is also more I would say more futuristic I like the Trinity but I
also like the the sliminess of the Imperials a lot
I like our the Imperials fill these ones feel a little bit wider
they are pretty pretty comfortable so I guess that’s it this is the power slide
cousin the power slide cousin just like the evil or the art Corryville because
the art Corriveau is the older model the one with the dual mount one screw in the
front but we’re in the back and now that these ones are Trinity these ones are
the evil Trinity or the evil Trinity Pro B skates
they don’t come dual size like the art boot skates if you are a 42 it’s a 42 if
you are 43 2 43 it’s basically one boot for each size my previous skates which
were the non Trinity I first add them in size 44 and at first they felt good but
after a while I ended up realizing that I should have tried the smaller model so
when I got the Trinity version I got the 43 I tried to put some insoles when I
first got them and it wasn’t super comfortable but the truth is after a
week or two they were just perfect and right now I use the 43 with some some
extra insoles and they just feel amazing comfort wise I guess this case them they
are really true to size because usually I’m 43 in every shoe now when it comes
to the powerslide Kozik these ones are 44 and it’s for sure my size maybe
because it’s a little bit rounder in front I’m not really sure why but maybe
because of that they feel a little bit shorter than the other skates the width
of the boot I would much prefer the cause it to be 43 my size because I
guess the width 43 it’s better for me but then they wouldn’t really fit my
nails would hit it the front of the skate which wasn’t really really
comfortable so that’s what when I realized that the Kazi is an amazing
skate but it’s size wise it’s not perfect for me that’s why I like this
one so much now I’m talking about European sizes but for all of you
watching these from America a size 43 is usually a US than a size 44 it’s usually
a US 11 the size 42 it’s usually a US 9 so when I mean that on the Casas I’m
using a 44 I’m talking about where’s 11 and usually my size on
everything else it’s a us 10 UK 9 European 43 a lot of numbers and a lot
of little not really going in detail but what you should know is main differences
the next are dual size just like the Imperials but the next feel a little bit
wider and the two sizes are also different the best way to explain is on
the next I’m a 42 43 on the Imperials I’m a 43 44 mainly because the necks are
a little bit wider and they use a different sizing on the Imperials
they’re also a little bit slimmer some people like it some people don’t
if you have a wide foot maybe go with the next also they have the different
frame system which is cool but that’s nothing to do with the sizing on the
other skates which are the hybrids not really soft boots these are kind of like
a mix of a hard boot with the soft but if you are looking for the Kazi you
should know that the Casa is a little bit shorter than the art koribo again
with the art core Evo or the Evo sorry about calling it hard core for me it’s
our core good so with the Evo I’m true to size again this is EP and 43 us 10 UK
9 I need to go one size up with a cousin I know this was a little bit confusing
if you have any doubt just drop me a comment I hope that these help this
somehow if you’re looking for some powerslide skates I’m sorry that I’m not
putting that many videos as I want to but I’ve been working nonstop weights
let me show you what I’m doing I’m not gonna show you the full thing I’m gonna
show you this this is the cover from a GoPro fusion
she’s a 360 camera that I’m learning how to use so I had to download the whole
new software to to edit because the version that I had wasn’t updated enough
then I needed all these plugins and I’m gonna get there and the video will drop
soon it’s actually really really cool I went out with Greg and we did something
cool should be dropping in the next few days but meanwhile I hope you guys enjoy
this one and don’t forget to watch organ and in this video I’ll drop the link in
the description you go there you press on a link you
ten euros which is about twelve dollars and you’re gonna love it that’s all I
can tell you I Lynette don’t forget to subscribe to the channel it’s really
important for me that you subscribe to this channel and then YouTube is going
to suggest these to more and more people but more important anything else don’t
forget why we all started skating and that is because it’s fun cheers guys and
have a good week yes

    First comment hello hello lino

  • October 22, 2018 at 10:32 am

    Got myself a pair of metropolis, and size is perfect as i always pick between 44 or 45 and the double size was 44/45. It was really a selling point since i bought them online and couldn't try them before.

  • October 22, 2018 at 10:37 am

    If wear a size US8.5, should get a EU 42 for a Kaze like you said on your clip? What do you think about a Kaze with a 80mm set up?

  • October 22, 2018 at 11:06 am

    a medido do pe em cm x palmilha também e um fator a considerar

  • October 22, 2018 at 11:26 am

    Nice information about the size of the skate

  • October 22, 2018 at 11:35 am

    As i've already said in my NEXTs review (and yeah i've already got stock Nexts for more than a month ), I've used all the procedures from Powerslide website in measuring foot size, and ordered a corresponded size (it was 40-41 for me, although I'm usually using 42) and it was a little bit smaller for me. I feel some pressure in the toes. So i guess tables on PS website is not very precise.
    I've also just talked with one of my subbies about the ankle fixation and we both think that it's not enough (it's very hard to tighten it to the comfortable point ). What do you think about it?

    p.s. and btw as always, my subbies are the best people on the planet

    Hi ricardo i have a question for u,are the imperial one compatible with a frame for triskate?if yes wich i should choose ?thanks for all bro. 🙂

  • October 22, 2018 at 12:17 pm

    How did the Roces X35 110 TIF fit you Ricardo?

  • October 22, 2018 at 12:18 pm

    Thanks again for the great intel. Another super video.

  • October 22, 2018 at 12:40 pm

    Weird sizing and no stock to try in the UK. Great job, inline skate industry.

  • October 22, 2018 at 12:45 pm

    Appreciate the sizing help. Mostly now i go off CM for sizing. My foot being 27-27.5 cm. I really want to get the next and think the 42-43 will be best now. I typically have to get a 44 in skates. Sizing is such a headache without a shop close and not being able to try things on.

  • October 22, 2018 at 12:47 pm

    when you get the proper NEXT, i will gladly take over your old ones 🙂

  • October 22, 2018 at 12:54 pm

    I'm a US 10.5 what size next would I have to get??

  • October 22, 2018 at 1:38 pm

    Ricardo, as i can see you have a Trinity 3×150 Off road setup.
    Powerslide sells a wheel named Roadrunner 150 wich is made for rolling fast on this setup on ashpalt.
    Would be nice to watch you skating these wheels.
    PS should send you a set.

    Good topic! I'm actually eyeing up the Kaze and Next myself – recently went to my local shop to try them on. I currently own the Imperial, USD Aeon and Carbon, and have skated all of em pretty extensively.
    With the Next (EDIT: I was only able to try a size that may have been too big for me), i found the toebox quite tall, wide and generally high volume, but the mid and rear parts of the boot felt quite narrow. I have skinny ankles so that was great for me but my feet splay out fairly early in along the foot so i felt pressure points in the middle portion of the boot. My Aeons are a pretty sweet fit, the boot is quite wide and flat, and the wide lacing i think does a good job of giving up any extra volume the rest of my foot needs.
    This is great for control in my eyes cause i don't like having space for my toes to poke up before i lift the front of the boot when i'm noodling my way through town. For this reason i stuck a fairly thick rubber insole from some sneakers in my imperials to keep my toe against the top of the boot (but obviously that comes with the downside of lifting my whole foot up about 4mm). Kaze feels like a dream and i'm almost certainly getting a pair as soon as I can! Unless i'm feeling extra fancy and go for the HC/Tau….

  • October 22, 2018 at 1:47 pm

    What about the gaps between the liner n the shell? Which hard shelled boot has least gap between the liner n boot near heel n toe and the space on top of the foot??

  • October 22, 2018 at 1:53 pm

    If I were to criticise, I'd say to try and be consistent about the way you talk about the relation between the width (and contours or volume if you're gonna go into that detail) of the boot with the length of the boot – I did get a little lost with what you meant when you were talking about your Kazes. For yourself and anyone out there – Brannock devices are great tools that you can get lots of info from – length, width, arch length of the foot that'll certainly help you talk about, buy and sell skates.
    Much love, Lino and keep the good vibes coming!

  • October 22, 2018 at 2:36 pm

    What about the Vanta with ATOP closure? You have not mentioned this skate since your initial review.

  • October 22, 2018 at 3:33 pm

    I've just recently picked up the next. I enjoy them. Length wise I am noticing some pressure in the toes particular on little (pinky) toe. I picked up the 44-45. And when I first put on the boot a littleI do also feel some pressure on my instep it subsides after a few pushes. I am not too sure what that is about. For me these two things are not causing issues or serious pain, so with all I said. I can honestly still say I am enjoying this skate a lot.

  • October 22, 2018 at 3:34 pm

    I wish I was able to find good information for people with wide feet like me earlier (my foot is roughly 115mm wide and 267mm long if I recall correctly). A year ago I bought a pair of Kaze Supercruisers as a first skate. I thought a lot about size and ended up getting the largest skate available without it getting too long for my foot. Since then I've tried to practice inline skating but the boot was just far too uncomfortable and by time I realized it was too late to return them.
    Now I'm stuck with a skate I can't use and I'm having a difficult time selling them. Not to mention I still don't know what skate would work for me if I ever tried again, because I really want to get into inline skating.
    Anyway, thanks for the video as always, Lino

  • October 22, 2018 at 4:49 pm

    I have a RB twister edge (amazing skate btw, really supportive) but… I have an orthopedic problem, "flat feet", so it's really painful to use a boot that is narrow on the ankle area like twister edge's…
    Do you think that Next boots are wider on that ankle area?

  • October 22, 2018 at 6:54 pm

    Lino- What insoles are you using on your EVO's?

  • October 22, 2018 at 7:37 pm

    Hello Ricardo, between the NEXT MEGACRUISER PRO 125 and the HARDCORE EVO PRO 90 TRINITY, which is your favorite?

  • October 22, 2018 at 9:47 pm

    I still don’t know why… but my megacruisers keep giving me ultra huge blisters on both feet…

  • October 23, 2018 at 4:30 am

    Doubling up on my insoles in addition to keeping my toenails trimmed have been a comfortable combination. 😬😜😯😳🕺🏃

  • October 23, 2018 at 5:26 pm

    love the NEXT design…can't wait to get some and cruise the cities

  • October 24, 2018 at 8:23 am

    wooooooooooooooooooooooooo coo i am also a skater i wanna improve and want subs subs subs budddddy you are cooo l amazingly skating

  • October 24, 2018 at 11:57 am

    and the Kaze boot is basically Swell right? Question: What do you think on wearing a hardboot for a longer skate cruise like a marathon?

  • October 26, 2018 at 11:25 am

    I don't understand one thing, why on earth they don't put the same ratchet buckle to the top of Kaze and Next like the 45 degree?

  • November 6, 2018 at 12:28 pm

    If you're in-between sizes, won't dual size fit may come off as a problem though?
    For example, I'm 24-24,5cm with 9,5cm width; that's usually equivalent to a 38-39. Yet, Powerslide Imperials are sized 37/38 | 39/40 – won't I run the risk of one size being too small and the other being too big? The dual size fit used on the new NEXT skates appears to be a "better fit" in my particular case, since I'll be having a 38/39 boot.
    Also, any chance you could make a "how they fit comparison" video between various inline skates brands? That would be super helpful for people who, like me, are looking to buy some skates but don't have inline skate stores in their country to try out these more expensive brands. Much appreciated. Greetings from Portugal.

    Hi. You said EU 43 = UK 9. I am a UK 9 but when looking to buy skates, websites and powerslide graphics state a 44 is a UK 9 and a US 10. Powerslide Tau Carbon? Do the Tau Carbon have a good width? Have you tried them?

    Hola, necesito unos patines para calles de la ciudad de México, cuales llantas me recomiendas?

    Hola Ricardo, hoy tengo unos Kaze 110mm y voy a comprar unos Hardcore Evo Trinity y quisiera preguntarte si debo comprarlos en la misma talla o tal vez deba comprarlos en 42. Agradezco mucho tu ayuda con este cuestionamiento. Amo tu canal y veo todos tus vídeos.

    U wear a 43 and u said u were a tall guy?! LOL😂🤣

  • April 27, 2019 at 12:44 am

    Hi Ricardo, my feet are 37½. Normally I'll take 38 size for my skates. Based on your experience on EVO, do you think I should take size 37 for EVO?

  • May 12, 2019 at 5:01 pm

    I ordered the Next, because i have very wide feet. Every shoe i own is a 43 but nevertheless this shoe is kind of too small. My left midfoot hurts on the outside. Will the shoe get wider? I dont want to order 44-45 because i tend to 42, I only wear 43 because of my wide foot.

  • June 29, 2019 at 11:26 pm

    Hey. This video is really helpful. I'm in the U.S. and i wear size 11 U.S. I haven't owned a pair of skates in about 15 years and I wanted to buy some this week. I was looking at the powerslide Vanta Black, but I can't find them anywhere in my size, so now i'm looking at getting the Powerslide Next. I really want 125 wheels. by any chance do you sell the Vanta Black in your shop? can you drop a link. If not, can you recommend a pair of blades that comes closest to the vanta black in terms of looks (i like all the black look), or just feel. thanks
