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?

Well. I ordered the Lotek Coastals for $50 shipped to my house off dan's comp in white. I was looking at the lotek website and there is a way to like paint them sort-of and i am going to make them purple. :)

Punx 07-23-08 10:44 PM

I like the white, soon to be purple or green.

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.

Coastals are icky looking.

Street rider 07-24-08 04:21 PM

I have DCs.

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

Street rider 07-24-08 08:17 PM

haha i had airwalks once. and thats all it takes to learn. once. they fell apart in like 2 weeks. and this is when i couldnt really even do anything besides bunnyhops and footjams.

Punx 07-24-08 10:34 PM

Haha. Airwalks suck!

minichamp31 07-25-08 09:32 PM

Coastals are still icky.

Punx 07-25-08 10:56 PM

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.

Street rider 07-26-08 08:36 AM

Street rider 07-26-08 11:21 AM
