i had those airwalks! i guess air jordans could be considered an early skate shoe.

I loved them.  I've always had really long, narrow feet, so I remember when I was a kid rolling up all the excess laces into a ball, and just mashing it down with the lacesaver.  After that, my next 3 or 4 pairs of shoes HAD to have lacesavers.

I really like skating in Vans,but I have wide fat feet and wide toes. Vans can be too skinny sometimes.


My shoes I learned how to ollie in

Post by: The brycickle on January 09, 2010, 01:22:10 PM
Some kind of DC shoe.  They didn't last too long.  That was back in the day when I skated every day.  Rain or shine, basement or outside.

My ocd kicks in w/ new stuff. The first thing I do w/ new shoes is drag the toes to put a scuff in them, otherwise it'll drive me crazy. Same thing w/ decks and trucks. It doesn't need to be a huge gash, just a little ding to get past the newness.

Super sierious. I can't enjoy skating something perfectly new. I'd never take a grinder to a pair of trucks, but obviously that guy has a different motivation.

Anyway, back to the thread....

Why not just skate for 10 minutes?

I love taking goofy looking crispy new shoes, skating for a few minutes, then seeing them broken in.

5 seconds to scuff them on a curb. Then I could enjoy the 10 minutes.

Does anyone remember those Vans that were shaped like shell toes that they sold in Mervyn's in the '90s? I don't even know if they were real Vans, but that was my shit.

The first shoes I skated were Adidas shelltoes. The first actual skateshoes I owned were Vans, I think they were halfcabs, or something similar.

Actually thinking back on it, I didn't wear shoes for a while.
I'd just strap kittens to my feet and skate all day.

First shoes I ever skated in were good old Chuck Taylors.  First pair of real live you betcha skate shoes were the Vision Street Wear suede with the rubber toe cap/ollie patches (I miss those shoes!).  After that it was Airwalk city for a LONG time until the other companies started up.

Adio Ed Selego's in the Brown/Tan colorway. It seems every shoe I skated from age 13-18 I miss and I wish I could skate them again.
