New York Times on Skate Shoe Fashion

The NYT reports on skate shoes in this week's Thursday style section. A revelation to us all? Hardly. The focus is on the style over function nature of most skate footwear, the speed that skaters run through sneakers, and just what’s cool. Check it out for yourself here.

Here's some shoes I destroyed in 3 days.Nike Cross Trainer SC: 3 sessions @ Bondi Beach skate park in Sydney, Australia.

“The idea of looking like a skateboarder without participating in the sport is the reason why the explosion happened, and allowed a company like ours to grow beyond the core scope,” Mr. Obre said.

he said it right.


At least you are trying to participate, just don't try too hard my friend. You don't have to prove anything to anyone that you skateboard by showing your barely torn/worn shoes.

but hey at least you got money. and you know it, take it out yo pocket and show it...like whoooosh!.

skating and looking dope at the same time is an expensive business....it's simple don't skate in fancy hi tops, get some shoes that arent made out of sparkly leather etc....they'll last a lot longer than 3 days.
