    Skateboarding Shoes

    Discussion started by PUMPKIN ESCOBAR - Jan 10, 2005

    Does anyone know where I can find and purchase out of production skate shoes? I'm looking for the Kirchart's first pro model for Emerica and either of Marc Johnson's Emerica models.

    Skate shoes rule. There's a reason they got super popular: they're the most comfortable footwear on the planet.

    airwalks were the shit,
    then they turned to shit as soon as they got popular.
    their technology and durability went down the drain in the matter of months...

    the last airwalks that were dope were the Sorry's.
    lace protection was key.

    my 540's lasted sooooo long.

    I've long wondered why skate shoe companies don't cover the laces with a layer of suede, shift them away from the outside of the foot, or do away with the laces altogether. Seems logical to me.
