Footwear is essential part of a skater and street style aficionado's getup. There is no alternative to comfortable and durable footwear especially if you wear it for skateboarding, running, playing basketball and other sports.
Designs may vary depending on the type of sport or activity the footwearis meant to be worn. For skateboarders, the need for properly built shoes is crucial for their safety and performance. The most common feature of skate shoes is having impact-absorbing soles to reduce the risk of foot fracture which is quite common among skaters.
The appeal and overall aesthetic of sporty footwear such as skate shoes, trainers and sneakers attract non-skaters and casual-loving individuals. So, it's no surprise to see lots of people wearing these types of footwear no matter what sport, hobby or lifestyle they have.
This is why we are so stoked to announce the arrival of our new footwear 2018 collection from brands New Balance, Lakai, Huf and Globe.
