    Default Epic Skate Shoes From Past And Present

    Since most my skate buddies have moved on or don't skate anymore, there isn't a lot of people to discuss how awesome some of the shoes made for skating are. I'd like to start with how awesome a certain pair of Axion's were. it was the original pair of Guy Marianos. those had a great aesthetic to them. i would even go as far as to say that his last pro model for them was equally as awesome. anyone else have a favorite pair that they have bought over and over or still have?

    I've got 5 pairs of Vision Street Wear right now. I loved their products in the 80's and I love them now. Very comfortable and they last through alot of abuse.

    Okay, maybe I'm going to show my age or how long I've been skating but...

    I loved the Converse Cons mid tops that Natas Kaupas and Rodney Mullen wore. Every time I got a new pair I swore I could ollie an extra 3 inches. While everyone else wore Vans that stained the toes of your socks or Chucks that bruised your heals, B-ball shoes were where it was at. I heard the Jordan 1's were great, but my mom wouldn't pay $100 to ruin a pair of shoes.

    AIrwalk NTS's were awesome even though the ad had two different colored shoes, in order to get that, you had to get two pairs. I also got a pair of the Bowling shoes they have but I never skated in them.

    As far as modern skate shoes go, I've always been a DC guy up until they sold out to Quiksilver. I got the 1st Colin McKays, Rudy Johnsons, Dyrdek 1&2, Syntec, Way 4's, Cosmos, and Embarko's and I know I'm missing a few others. Most people don't realize that DC shaped modern footwear.

    I now am a slave to Sole Technologies. I've only wear Es or Etnies. I guess it started with the Mike V's. Then the Ronnie Craggers and now the Ryan Shecklers which I have two pairs that I currently rock. I also have 4 pairs of Lo Cut Golf shoes that I bought at the Camarillo Outlets. One pair that I wear on the course, one that I wear to work(after I took the spikes out) and two on ice.

    Early 90s - vision, airwalk, Nike force

    Mid 90s- vans, addidas

    Late 90s-Etnies (sal barbier 23, mc rap, skol)
    Es(kostons,accel) Axion (Kareem Campbell)

    2000s-vans, Es(Rynolds 1,2), I path

    Anything with gum soles and natural colors always did it. I loved the accel because of the thick tounge.

    I always preferred the Koston 2's compared to the original ones. Also the Rowley 3's for Vans were pretty awesome.
