Sole on Ice

These ice skates don’t need a frozen surface to function effectively, for the »slippery« component is embodied in their construction: the soles being made from ice. Therefore they can be used for skating on all sorts of smooth surfaces. So they actually work as a kind of »multi environment leisure enhancer«, adding a dash of colourful guerrilla play power to even the greyest urban environment. Knowing that the experience is only lasting for a short while, as the ice melts while slippin’ n slidin’, the value of the moment is enhanced. However, these »soles on ice« can be re-created, simply by putting them back in the freezer over night.
