STOP HEEL LIFT – SHL Boot fitting pads

December 29, 2010 in Hardware

Here’s another SkiAndBoarding find…

We’ve all been in the situation where hire boots don’t fit very well. Mark Clark from SHL has come up with SHL™ Stop Heel Lift – boot fitting pads.

Even the best boots pack down and heel lift can be a big problem. SHL™ fits easily onto the back of your liners to bring back that heel hold. Or, if you are hiring boots, which, lets face it hardly ever fit very well, SHL™ can make all the difference to your holiday.

For Ski boots Snowboard boots Skates & Mountaineering boots with removable liners

Do your heels lift in your boots?

Have your boots packed down and no longer
fit as well as they did?

Do you feel the need to over tighten your
boots which leads to foot pain??

• Dramatically reduce heel lift
• Increase control and power
• More confidence to go harder and faster
• More efficient motion to go for longer
• Reduce the need to tighten your boots as much
• More comfort!

For Immediate Release
Sunglass Hut Unveils Mike Ming’s Exclusive Collection
for the Sunglass Hut Artist Series

(New York, NY) December 16, 2010 – Sunglass Hut is pleased to announce the return of the Sunglass Hut Artist Series, an annual program, which sources up-and-coming artists to create exclusive collectible sunglasses in support of OneSight – the charitable foundation created to help restore and preserve clear vision for adults and children in need worldwide.. This year, Sunglass Hut has partnered with Mike Ming, a Brooklyn-based painter whose work has been seen from murals on tobacco barns of North Carolina to Tokyo Japan’s revolutionary art gallery, Dyezu-Experiment.

Ming has uniquely designed 100 pair of Ray-Ban Wayfarers exclusively for the Sunglass Hut Artist Series.  Each frame is signed and numbered by the artist and comes with a certificate of authenticity.  Mike’s work deals with a melting of interests, hobbies, techniques and narratives. His style evolved from his childhood interests of comics, cartoons, visual contemporary/modern arts, museums, popular culture as well as ‘primitive’ and aboriginal imagery and prehistoric/timeless designs. The collection will be available exclusively on SunglassHut.com beginning Thursday, December 16th. Each piece retails for $175.00, $30.00 of which will be donated to OneSight.

“We’re thrilled to work with Mike Ming for the latest installment of the Sunglass Hut Artist Series,” said Marcello Favagrossa, Vice President of Marketing, Sunglass Hut North America. “With his bold and fluid use of color to illustrate movement and motion that is reminiscent of bike riding, skateboarding, and surfing, Mike brings a new chapter to the history of the Artist Series.  He has created a must-have accessory just in time for the holiday season.  Each piece in this limited edition collection is truly a piece of art.”  He continued, “As a retailer, the Sunglass Hut Artist Series allows us to maintain our commitment to the consumer to offer a fresh, fun perspective on the eyewear category.  This collection is expected to be a best-seller for sunglasshut.com.”

The work of Mike Ming is made up of drips, blots and lines, which create an artistic communication within the artwork. The movement in shape creates rhythms, melodies and exclamations similar to those made in music. Ming’s creations are dictated by influences, visual references, and immediate stimulation/experiences.

“It is an honor to follow in the footsteps of the other artists who have had the privilege to create works of art for the Sunglass Hut Artist Series,” said Mike Ming. “I was excited to use sunglasses as my canvas and have my work contribute to a great charitable cause.”

The Sunglass Hut Artist Series was founded in 2009 and has featured the works of artists Chris Mendoza and Maya Hayuk.


OneSight is a family of charitable programs dedicated to improving vision for those in need worldwide, through outreach, research and education.  Since 1988, their global programs have helped more than six million people around the world see more clearly.  OneSight also supports research and education, granting more than $6 million towards vision preservation and thousands of dollars in scholarships to students pursuing a degree in optometry.

Relentless Freeze Festival (formerly London Freeze), the UK’s biggest winter sports and music event, returns to London following its success in attracting over 20,000 to Battersea Power Station in 2009. The event, now in its third year, sees several of the world’s best winter sports athletes – fresh from the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver – fiercely competing in a world class snowboarding and freeski event.
From October 29-31st the international competition standard snow jump once again becomes an iconic sight on the capital’s skyline. Standing over 32m high and 100m long, using over 500 tonnes of real snow, the LG Big Air World Cup showcases the world’s best snowboarders competing for vital ratings points in their quest to become World Champion. The London leg of the FIS-sanctioned World Cup kicks off the UK winter sports season and is the third event on the Men’s LG World Cup tour.
Last year’s event saw Austrian Stefan Gimpl scoop the title before a UK record winter sports crowd of 13,000 on World Cup day but competition is set to be even tougher this year with the likes of Americans Colby West, Scotty Lago and quarter pipe height world record holder Simon Dumont expected to attend, alongside British Olympian Ben Kilner and UK No 2. Dom Harrington.
The superstars of the ski world are in town for the International Freestyle Ski Big Air, the only event of its kind in the UK. Australian Russ Henshaw took the first prize purse last year and is expected to defend his crown against world class opposition including exciting young American star Bobby Brown.
The best of the British athletes go head to head in the Battle of Britain competitions across both snowboarding and freestyle ski disciplines over the course of the weekend. The Top 4 riders in each competition then go on to compete in the international competitions.
