A brand of sneaker with a removable slick plastic plate in the soles, under the arch of the foot. The plate enabled the wearer to grind on rails and edges without the aid of skates or a board. Style-wise, they tended to be pretty chunky looking, similar to skate shoes, but were probably not as comfortible. They were cool for only a few months in 1998-99, but were popular enough to cause concern among parents and schools. Succeeded by Heelys a couple years later, which had heel-mounted weels and were uglier and even less comfortible. Soaps is now a defunct maker.
Haha, my cousin saved up for a vintage pair of Soaps and broke his jaw the first week after he got 'em!
A type of writing AP Language and Composition teachers like to ask you to do for a book during summer. SOAPS stands for subject, occasion, audience, purpose, and speaker.
Subject - What is this about?
Occasion- What happened to cause this to be said/written? Why was it recorded?
Audience- Who is the intended audience?
Purpose- Why was this spoken/written? What purpose does it serve?
Speaker- Who is the speaker or author?
All in all, SOAPS gives students hell.
Joe: FUCK! I have to finish my SOAPS for AP Language and Composition!
Nick: Damn dude. GL. School is tomorrow. It took me like 8 hours!
Joe: DAMN SOAPS!!!!
