I need some new kicks for two reasons - my skate shoes are done and winter is approaching fast. The search is not going well.
If you can put a cup sole on an ugly ass high top, why can't you put a cup sole on a decent looking low top? It's been done before and it works really well.
Why does the Dennis Busenitz shoe have twice as much tongue as is needed? He's a skateboarder, not a soccer player.
Why does every company insist on making all their shoes as rip offs of the Half Cab? If I wanted a pair of Half Cabs, I'd buy a pair of Vans, not your lame ass copy.
I have two college degrees in Fine Art. I may not be Josef Albers in my knowledge of color theory, but I do know what colors go together and why. It's pretty damn obvious that a lot of the shoe designers out there don't. Skateboard footwear should not look like something Rainbow Brite would wear.
Enough with the plaid. Unlike vert, ska really is dead.
