if you're gonna skate canvas shoes, the trick is to put a little super glue where the material just starting to fray. it forms a hard plasticky shield at your wear points that extends the life.

that being said, i wouldn't recommend skating canvas shoes at all, especially authentics (imo they're bum ass for skating. fuckin stiff cardboard ass sole and canvas). try to get something with suede at the toe and side at the very least, and some kind of slightly to super cushy insole, depending on what you like. preferably the shoe should also break in relatively fast so the sole is bendy and consequently you can really get a good scoop

my personal experience skating shoes:

vans - rip faster than other shoes. waffle outsole wears down really fast from doing the foot shuffle when you set up (if you don't do this this they'll probably last longer). best board feel shoes imo.

cons - suede is extremely hard-wearing, usually the reason i have to change shoes because i wore down the outsole so much. that being said, if you do tre flips in a certain way you might find the outsole separates from the midsole first. very very annoying to deal with. cushier insole than vans, extremely comfy.

huf - i've skated the classics and in terms of pure skate performance they're my favorite. they come very very soft right out the box so the break in period is near nil. they are very thin and floppy so you get an incredible amount of board feel. they didn't last very long from what i tried, and i had to bust out the shoe goo to keep them alive. these are like basically burn bright but not long kinda shoes

never really skated nike or adidas but the cory kennedys and matchcourt lites have been getting rave reviews. maybe worth a shot.

Are the slip on pros as sick as I imagine they are?


also 874s are like $13 for prime day.

pulled a shoulder muscle while skating around and i'm pretty much down for the count, tried to skate on it today and something about balancing made it even worse, left half of my body goes in and out of intense pain every breath I take. I will survive, mostly just sad I can't skate :(

I don't skate. But I figure Vogue x Rodney Mullen is at least worth posting? What do you guys think? I appreciate that they seem to be spanning the gap between skating and dance/arts. There's a great Vogue podcast w/ Rodney where he really shows his passion and how monumental this is for him. Give it a listen, very cool.

Every time I think of new tricks, I'm like we've exhausted everything we can do with these damn planks on wheels havent we? Every time I'm so wrong. This is dope.

Also CT people in London, kinda fancy picking up the board and hitting some mini-ramp whilst summer is around. Anyone fancy Bay66?

newest polar full was put online a couple weeks back, if you havent seen it i highly rec. dane brady's part is so crusty. krod's part is gnarly af. strong showing from the team

lurknyc ny times v18 i think it's cool that lurknyc is now on transworld but just makes it a little annoying for embedding, sorry dudes

also skateboarding for olympics 2020, i'm pretty indifferent about it. it is what it is

Been riding this Zero for a bit, really have enjoyed skating again after taking a long break, it's such a refreshing feeling to go outside and feel the cement under your wheels as you cruise along the road. Still am just getting used to riding again however, hopefully once the weather cools down I'll be able to go out more often and work on my tricks. Really looking forward to the coming months and all the experiences that they have to offer.

So Thrasher hoodies and tees became a huge item for streetwear consumers in the last 12 months or so and naturally the Phelper has opinions:

“We don’t send boxes to Justin Bieber or Rihanna or those fucking clowns,” says Phelps, advising people to justify their fashion statements on the streets. “The pavement is where the real shit is. Blood and scabs, does it get realer than that?”

from an interview with HypeBeast.

See: http://hypebeast.com/2016/9/jake-phelps-thrasher-magazine-interview?utm_source=affiliates&utm_medium=commissionjunction&utm_campaign=VigLink

Kind of an odd outlet for such ranting, no?

Extra funny since the growth in Thrasher/Poser crossover was sparked by a SS15 Supreme collaboration... an obvious incitement to posing. Yet the Phelper remains consistent in his single-mindedness. Money good, posers bad; you can buy all the product you want but the Brand reserves a right to insult you just the same. The man has always been known for mouthing off.

Comment sections on Paper and Complex and other second-hand outlets are filled with offended dorks.

Is there a more specific post-skate thread for this?
