Title: Why I choose to support Nike and Apology, this is GWB
Post by: Alien Sweatshop on January 23, 2009, 03:26:37 PM
Okay, most core shoe companies are in the California, and most of them except for maybe Fallen and a few others don't give a fuck about ANYONE outside of California. Guess who does? Or is at least hooking up a good amount of people out here in the east coast? Nike and Adidas, which is why I choose to support them, they hook up alot of people out East like Pensyl, Falla, Jahmal, Brock, Grant, Clark, Bachinski, Todd, Tino, Zach etc. whereas Lakai, Emerica and all those companies out west are looking for the hottest new kids from the Valley who did the hottest new tricks down the hottest new spots and I think that's rad of them to do that for us. It's just like how New Yorkers and New Jerseyans were really into (and somewhat still are now) Habitat and AWS because it WAS THE East Coast company and it still is somewhat with kalis, Freddy, Jake, Durante, Kerry etc. or how someone in SF would be really into Deluxe (NY is pretty big on Krooked though). Get it now? I don't care who's behind it, they're supporting people where I'm from and their shoes are damn good and I think that's pretty rad. Can we please drop the nike pumps thing? And I'm sorry

Eastward your wet dream is about to become a reality......Habitat (apparently the midwest means east coast to you).....yes Habitats shoes for all your East coast homies that apparently are getting robbed of shoes.    Zo...I mean Elemen.....I mean Habitat is coming to save the day.

The spots in the northern part of the midwest are pretty rough and I think we can relate to them since we both go through shitty winters (I bet they'd have it worse) and such. And by calling them east coast i was more leaning towards them sponsoring ALOT of people from the east coast, at one point Habitat was all east coast minus Danny Garcia, Appleyard and Janoski around Photosynthesis/Mosaic; Tim O, Freddy, Pluhowski, Wenning, Renaud, Selego, Wenning, Kerry. AWS and Habitat videos put the east coast/midwest on the map somewhat. Even the Cali dudes on Habitat/AWS would skate LOVE. Then Philly just died and the sketchy spots/cellar doors trend (which I love) started to gain prominence. And Habitat shoes is just a rumor and I'll always have much love for Freddy.

I think that most of the people who dislike nike dislike them for making skate shoes now because of their 10 year or so absence from skateboarding. It seems like they only started making skate shoes again because they found a niche in the market to exploit... I think a lot of people feel that the execs at nike probably don't get psyched off of skateboarding or really care about it in the same way as the other companies... As for me, I probably won't buy any nikes anytime soon unless they slap some nice waffle grip soles on the bottoms...

Ha, my local shop just got some SBs.  I talked with him about the old "supporting local shops" thing and he said it's bullshit...Nike is supposedly very dickish about which shops get what.  So that theory is tainted, in my eyes.

i understand the whole supporting the east coast thing... and i also understand that nike and adidas are the only companys that can dick around with core skaters. it really is hard for vox to score a sick east coaster in hopes that lots of core kids will buy his shoes...

i for one will never buy a pair of nike sb's for the same reason i wont buy vans. everyone and their mother wears those shoes, and in some sort of anti-hero-esque way i like for my "attire" to be a mystery to yuppies.

I'm just stoked on people who came from my region of the world, not trying to start some east Vs. west shit. Just like with hip hop, someone in the north east can relate more to Wu or Biggie or Nas and someone down south can relate more to Gucci or Wayne.
Freddy, Oyola, Pang, Jahmal, Puleo, Kalis, those guys are my "dagers" so of course I'm gonna have different tastes.

Shoe threads are dumb.
The majority of you are old men who have admitted that you can't ollie or you can only ollie (with the exception of Dean and Eby) so your shoes last you 6 months. I can't wait until this comment turns into proof that im not a "true" skater because of course, having the ability to progress in skateboarding and having fun at the same time is impossible. Because I totally just grind ledges and skate flatground all day.

Well on here, that makes you a jock who hucks himself down 15 stairs and one ups his friends and skates competitions. Alot of the people on here talk shit on certain skaters because they're "boring, which apparently means doing technical tricks. When you can actually do some of the tricks done in videos, it makes you actually appreciate what those guys are doing so the opinion of a 25 year old who can't kickflip is more narrow-minded than that of a 14 year old who can. Switch noseblunts, tre flip noseslides, you have no idea how hard those tricks actually are.

I'm the same way, I understand BUT saying that Chris Cole and P Rod straight up suck or shouldn't be pro is dumb. I won't watch them but I don't say that "they're nothing special" because they are "something special." What I don't get is, in the 90's when someone did a really fucked up trick everyone would be stoked on it and now when someone does a fucked up trick people rag on them and call them jocks and "nothing special."

i don't think that is what people are saying. ridiculous is still ridiculous. i think anyone can appreciate that...however, not all parts have 100% ridiculous tricks. the rest are good tricks that just seem like slightly different variations of the same things...but on boring spots. nollie flip crooks are sick, but seeing them down a bunch of different handrails get boring...but the trick can still be wowing if done on new and different things. prod was celebrated when he first came out, but his trick selection just didn't really change. he tighted them up and maybe did them bigger or switch, but he hasn't really progressed outside of technical ability. chris cole has though. i don't think anyone is going to deny his bs 360 down love. can anyone think of any stand out tricks from prod? i can't think of anything off hand, and i think that is the problem. he is good just not memorable for a lot of long time skaters...but he does work well with the youngins.

Not everyone was stoked about what went on in the 90s.   Especially the early 90s.    In fact it was one of the last time it all "died".     So hatred has existed in skated from the get go.    I don't like Cole or to watch him but that's just me.    As in the 90s I.E.  there were old dudes saying wow when Dave Mayhew did that switch hardflip it was fucking terrible.....and his shoes are whack too.    Some of those judgement calls were spot on.   Some were just bitter old farts full of jealousy.     But really its all opinion.    Which is why its stupid as hell to be arguing over why you like Nike to people that don't like Nike.    Don't get me wrong cause I like some of there shoes and have skated plenty of pairs.     But seriously your like a Democrat trying to convert a Republican of vice versa.    Just let it go...you like something other people don't.    Who fucking cares.

And finally, how did your shoe thread become a forum for you to discuss your "switch noseboners and tre la vi slides" and how you're the person that knows the degree of difficulty from flat ground freestyle to vert airs and all the tricks in between.    Get a grip kid....no one cares what tricks you've done.    They're for kids silly.

I get called a jock because I progress in skateboarding. I can do tricks but watching myself skate is unbearable. Bombing a hill still feels better than some ledge trick. I just feel that by progressing while having fun at the same time, I kind of make skateboarding much more fun for me because I have a variety of things that I can try. i'm not a jock. I don't skate to impress girls, I'd rather have them not know that I skate at all. I don't like playing games of skate with random kids who treat it like a serious competition. I just hate people like stewpidphuck and malinas, they rag on me and others for every little thing that isn't anti-conformist as fuck. I'll list my favorite skaters and they'll say I'm a kook jock who's taste in skaters is butchered from the slap boards. They assume that they are true skateboarders and I'm not. Noone spends 1/3 of their life skateboarding and doesn't love doing it. Malinas feels that he's the only 15 year old who skates for the right reasons, he's not. Many 15 year olds have the same taste in skaters, most teenagers these days are into style more than tricks. I can't name a single 13-16 year old that I know who's been skating for more than 3 years that isn't into the Pappalardos, the silas baxter neals, the jake johnsons, the heath kircharts and all those types. I don't know how skaters are in San Diego, I know the "kook" factor with kids is pretty high in NYC, maybe it's even worse in San Diego and that's what Malinas and stewpid are surrounded by everyday.
I'm the same way, I understand BUT saying that Chris Cole and P Rod straight up suck or shouldn't be pro is dumb. I won't watch them but I don't say that "they're nothing special" because they are "something special."

I guess you have a point but how about Vincent Alvarez and those guys who keep doing fakie bigspin/270 lipslide/boardslide variations? I like Vincent but it does get kind of old after a while. All his tricks seem to involve a fakie blunt, a lipslide, a 270, a boardslide, a fakie bigspin or a bluntslide....

you seem to seek acceptance from us? but if you don't give a fuck so much why do you keep trying to validate your point? Personally your taste in skaters and the shit you wear has nothing to do with why I don't like you. You seem to think everytime somebody says something to you it's because of the skaters you like or the shit that you wear. You ever think maybe its just because you say stupid shit? But hey it's never to late to change. Maybe your a cool guy who's just a tad misguided. Who am i to say.

Maybe you haven't noticed, but you young guys are the most uncreative group of skaters ever.

Where are all the inovative new tricks?

Oh that's right...  Shoe fashion and talking shit about certain pros is your contribution to skateboarding.

Why doesn't someone on the East Coast start their own company?
I'll never rock Sb's, giant corporations bum me out. Plus there's the whole exploited foreign workers shit.

I have a problem,Vans were like my favorite shoes to skate in but they put so much junk out now. It's like "are those for skating or not?"
Plus the Jocks at my highschool have the TNT's and the Anti-Hero colab. shoes too. I bet those dudes have never even heard of Cardiel or Stranger. Everyone rocks Vans these days,so they put a bunch of junk out.It's not pure skateboarding.Plus they're owned by the same company that makes wrangler and shit

shoe company? because starting a show company requires a lot of overhead and it would be hard to compete with the west coast companies. zoo york kinda did, but they are working with sketchers. but i know some people that got some pairs for free and can't find anyone to give them away to. nobody wants them.

Skatenerd is an idiot. Do you expect Freddy, a dude who drives his grandma's car or someone to start a shoe company out here? We don't have all of the industry, Maybe the sovereign sect but that's in Ohio and I wouldn't wear a pair of Gravis or Habitat shoes. Why do you care if I wear a shoe with a vans stripe or a swooshtika on it? How does that affect you? What legit shoe companies has nike put out of business? Power? NSS? The Vox', Vans and Lakais will still survive whether nike's in the industry or not. They still sell well. I'm not ignorant, I don't believe in "core shoes", I believe in quality shoes, which Supra, Element, Power, NSS, Ice Cream and Beloe don't make. Anyone can start their own board company, so "coreness" in the deck world exists and corporateness exists as well. In skate shoes, corporateness is the only thing that can exist. And the sweatshop argument, do you think Rick Howard just sits on a stoop in LA and constructs the newest manchester select colorway during a session?
If they're backing where I'm from and they make good shoes, I'm down. Just like someone in Kansas is all on etnies and Girl's nuts over the fact that they sponsor Malto. I'm not from fucking Portland so fuck off.

You guys are a bunch of wannabe core's who have gotten way too old to use the internet have a valid opinion on skateboarding.

Maybe you haven't noticed, but you young guys are the most uncreative group of skaters ever.

Where are all the inovative new tricks?

Oh that's right...  Shoe fashion and talking shit about certain pros is your contribution to skateboarding.

Congratulations!  I dub thee "The Poser Generation".

Now if you will all excuse me, I have to go kill some Commies.

 
When did you start skating with me and made the conclusion that im uncreative? Do you know me? I fucking hate watching Furby, Malto and Mo skate. I despise most Canadian ams. Pappalardo is one of my biggest influences in my skating. I'm from fucking Long Island not the OC or any city in California that has a spanish name that isn't San Francisco.

I was reffering to bucky's post a page back in my original post. You were being stupid so i had to poke fun and edit my post.

And EastWard, how can you despite most canadian am's when you don't even know a majority of them ? spencer hamilton's part in the new strange brew video is a better part then anyone has put out in the east coast, ever.

some of you have probably heard about Michael Vick and his Pitbull dog fights. And if some of you are like me, you had no idea just how much money is involved with such a detestable event. (its not a sport)

Millions of dollars are filtered through these gaming events. Vick is a scumball who already makes tons of money, wasserbett (http://www.wasserbettenhilfe.com)
accept credit cards online (http://www.sunvirtual.com)
lives a wealthy lifestyle but has a low life character. I hope he is hounded by the press so that he's no longer an idol of sports fans. He doesn't deserve any respect due to his cruelty and stupidity.

Do you think pitbulls should be banned in the U.S.? What do you think happens to these animals when they can no longer fight in the pit? Some are killed, many are turned lose as strays in rural and other community areas and wherever the owners think someone will take them in and care for them. What this presents is a danger to young children as well as  These dogs kill. And they do not stop until a child is dead. Breeders of these dogs breed them for fighting knowing that death of a human being might be the result. But money is the driving force.

Should pitbulls be banned? What do you think?
