Update 26/09/14: There is currently low levels of availability of SSM skates worldwide. We are expecting a new SSM model to become available around Christmas 2014. Moving forward. the SSM brand will be switching to a new distributor in 2015 and we anticipate much better availability in 2015 and onwards.
SSM skates (Shima Skate Manufacturing) was born out of the rubble left behind by the Nimh skate brand. Legend Brian Shima took the brand into his own hands after going his separate ways with then business partner Jon Elliot. Shima Skate Manufacturing skates use all similar parts to the Nimh skate as the boot mould is identical. Shima will release a series of pro model skates for 2015 starting with the highly anticipated SSM Gabriel Hyden skates.
