whatever I can find in a size 4 that's not a giant pile of joke shit.  You size 9s don't know how good you have it.

I buy what I can afford in my size.

I recently picked up some LaKostons for 25 bucks.

Damn son. If I ever go pro and got a deal with any shoe company. I would make my pro model exactly like that!

I ride Vox because I am a purist. Are any of the people who remember WSVT4LIFE catching my drift?

I'm jealous of cats like Babe Nasty (that sounds so good to me haha) who can pick shoes off the clearance.  Maybe if Journeys Kids has a sale or some shit I can get some fat, sweet dcs for $20.....

for sure, dude, I used to order all my shit off zappos and ebay, but I don't have a bank account anymore and I think if I get one lots of people will snake all my cash.  Hopefully I can get zumiez to order me shit...

"buy what you can afford"   words to live by..


oh and those fallens are hideous.  "in my opinion"

I got a pair of the lakai kostones on clearance a few months back. They sucked. Part of it was they were narrow as fuck and hurt my feet, other part was they blew the fuck out in no time flat.
Big fan of vans, they're one of the few companies that feel good to me straight out the box. Just wish they lasted longer.


Title: Re: What kinda shoes do you skate?
Post by: Emergen C. on November 13, 2009, 07:12:47 PM
My pair of Lakai's that i've had for a year and skated/wore everyday blew out just last month. I'll never buy anything but lakai

Yep, Element.  I'm surprised how well they're holding up.

Classic vans in suede. Love putting on a new pair and actually skating better.
