I wrote a piece for 032c on the subject of non-skate shoes being used as skate shoes a short while ago. It was actually meant to be part of a bigger interview with some people, but we struggled to get the Q&As in time, making it more a stream of consciousness than a cohesive history. Just thinking about the Chris Hall cameo in the Nike SB ad brightens my day and reminds me of a time when all this stuff was mind-blowing rather than a cyclical meander. Anyway, it’s basically the same kind of stuff you read here, but with far prettier layout instead of a WordPress amateurishly altered by a bloke who would rather spend money on Air Jordans than hire a professional to sort out his site design. Anyway, click the image above or right here to read the damned thing.
