2014 Holiday Footprint

For those who were forced to miss out on the Back to School flavor because big momma spent all her money on coloring books, crayons, and lunch tickets, now you have an excuse to get your shine on.  The Holiday season is all about you and elevating your shoe game.

Below is a rundown of what’s poppin’ this holiday season so you can distance yourself from the food court flock and be the shot caller on your side of the cafeteria.  All coming soon to BuySkateShoes.com.  Skate Proper, Shop Proper.

 

1. Slip-Ons

Slip-ons are the new beard.  They’ve been around forever, but they’re really in style right now.  Sometimes you have to go back to the basics that have been right there in front of you the whole time.

Whether you’re pushing to the gas station on a beer run, picking up the essentials for mom’s award-winning meatloaf, avoiding those laces as you sprint to catch the school bus, or sneaking in to work just before Lumbergh finds out you’re late, slip-ons are not only convenient and advantageous, but straight gangster.  Most importantly, they look good and feel even better on a board.

2. Colorways

Rich colors like Burgundy, Port Wine, Smoke Grey, Tobacco Brown, and Deep and Cool Navys to Earth Tones that transcend Fall, Holiday footwear always brings the sex appeal.  New holiday colorways not only add diversity to your layering pieces, your chinos and dark denim, and that jacket you’ve been recycling since 2010 (you’re not foolin’ anybody, playboy), but also give you the ability to change the game.  You’re going to be guaranteed to have that certain Jazzy Belle’s teeth sweatin’.

3. Soles

Skateboarding used to be about individualism.  That’s why I’m now having all of my tattoos removed (not really).  Black Suede, white soles.  Congratulations.  You did it.  Again.  And, again.  I want you to be someone different.  Stand out.  Get that double take you’ve been yearning for with a few these in your portfolio:

4. Tech

If longevity and functionality are the most important attributes in your skate shoe, then this is where you need to be.  Maybe you hung your trucks up a long time ago and now find yourself oiling your joints, continually searching for the utmost comfort?  Or…just got broke off the hard way and need some stability and new found confidence.  Yeah, price points are higher, but…over time, your wallet and your body will love you more for it.  Less talk and more walk with these.

Fashion Police: You CANNOT wear tech shoes with slim fit jeans.  Not sexy.  And while I preach a sense of individualism in this trend report, don’t even think about it.  Stay hood rich and keep those pants below the waist.  Big ups to the half pints on adopting baggier pants these days.  You’ll grow up to be the man your parents wanted you to be.

5. Lifestyle

Lifestyle is defined as “the way in which a person or group lives.”  To me, skateboarding isn’t just the act of skateboarding, but a culture in and of itself.  It’s about going against the grain and being somewhat unconventional in thoughts, ideals, and behavior.  I’ll even take it a step further…fashion.  What we wear is a symbol or expression of oneself.  Are you being forced to go to your best friend’s wedding despite hating his future ex-wife?  Having to conform to a dress code at your job with all of the other paper pushers?  Or, maybe, you finally figured out that the tenderonis don’t get down with the bros who have holes in their shoes?  Compartmentalize and keep it super gourmet with a few of these.  First impressions go a long way…and so does staying true to who you are.
