shoes

I have gone through 2 pairs of shoes in the like 6 weeks i have been biking again. The bottom just gets ripped off. I had p-rods that i got for like $10 and like some lakai's i got for free. I was thinking about getting some loteks or orchids or something. Any reccomendations?

When i was at the Natomas skatepark a couple days ago. Crap i don't know the name of the trick. You sort-of air out of the bowl you go 90 degree's you jam your foot in then you bunny hop back in. He did that with no shoes on in the biggest bowl. It was crazy.

I've worn Vans for years. Elements and DVS hold up well. Avoid air walks if you can.

If they were Michael Jordan's signatures, they'd still be ugly. Well, uglier than most of his signatures anyhow. It's either Half-cabs or copier.
