    That makes sense to me, earlier it just sounded like you were saying that Lakai were making some heroic and generous gesture to anyone wanting to sell skate shoes by not forcing huge minimum orders on them when that should just be normal.

    Difficult to see how this kind of thing would raise any interest in the brand.

    I'm backing State. The team's rad, the insoles are good and I'm into the subtlety of it.

    Surely it's a kinda throwback to the old Fallen ads where the shoes were always fucked.

    Have you or anyone for that matter skated a pair? I'm certainly tempted.

    Fair enough on the Fallen thing but it just looks like any old canvas slip on to me and the other Chuck rip off is pretty underwhelming. With State I'm continuously intrigued but Straye just looks toilet and the Muska thing was very embarrassing.

    I've got a few pairs of State. Haven't skated in them though cos they're vulc and I only fucks with cupsoles for skating.

    Freshkid's got a pair and he's into them. And they sponsor Conor Keen Charleson, the undisputed wallie king.

    They might have been thinking 'Supra Avex'. Maybe they're keen to break into the M&M Direct market.



    Anyway, you can't knock Vans, brah! They've got heritage!

    I can knock Vans, they've been known to produce some of the worst shoes of all time:

    That's because they just constantly innovate.

    The weird thing is I really wanted to like those recent Dime Fairlanes with the clear soles but they didn't even update them in any way, the sole was still a massive lump:

    Yeah, they look like medical footwear. Especially in powder blue like that. Like something you'd wear in some sort of institute. The OG black w/white looked great at the time though.

    Well there's plenty of horrific colours going around from all brands and I think that could been a cool shoe had they updated the sole.

    I like the colour, just not on that shape of shoe. Softer colours look good on One Stars, Jazz, even Janoskis. A big chunky shoe in a colour like that looks strange. Even the baby blue OG Sal 23s were slimmer and looked good.
