Didn't you have Ruben shoes awhile back?

They seem like a reputable company and i love their Ruben shoe. Too bad i don't think they make size 14.

I think any company that supports bmx in a letigimate way is okay with me.

I know any company that Taj supports has to be pretty ethical.

Any company that is willing to put this much money into actually PRODUCING a video, and their last video is still considered up to par or better than most recent videos.

I will fully admit, if this video comes on youtube, or google video, I won't even bother. This is getting my $20.

I would rather give $70 to etnies than to any other shoe company esspecially for riding. (besides maybe adidas, because they ar REALLY comfortable everyday shoes and they last forever.)

And you have to admit you also bought Element shoes.


Now you're really a bad bike rider. You supported a skateboard company. How lame is that?

I want some Loteks yo.

I like Orchid, but not their shoes. Aha.


I must admit i've been happy with these DC's though. Plus Chris Doyle rides for DC, and we all know Chris Doyle is god.

Loteks are decently nice, and they are really wide (which for you is a plus).

How can you like Orchid, but not their shoes? They are mainly a shoe company. But I guess you like their clothing?

I tried my old DC's out once and they sucked... all they did was slip.

If by "decently nice" you mean "fall apart quickly."

i used to skate a lot and ive never had a shoe that got ****ty faster than my etnies. i have had 2 pairs of them and both where ****ty quality and just wore out way to damn fast.

Def the best brand ive had for durability and what i wear when i ride is one of my pairs of circas. best shoe ive have had, im at like my 5th pair.

Nah, i like Orchid and i'd buy some of their shoes, but i don't like their designs. Aha.

I want some Etnies Ruben's or Lotek Throwbacks. Too bad my friend got the Throwbacks in the color i wanted.
