1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    These skateboarding brands alwasy seem to pump out quality shoes.

    Yep, they're made to go to hell and back.

    Back when I skated, I used to go through pair after pair of either Vans or All-Stars. I MAY have had a pair of Visions when I was younger....can't remember. I remember the first Caballero's from Vans....and the original Bones Brigade.....

    I was somewhere the other day and noticed some modern skate shoes...

    they are SO ugly, they totally look like cartoon shoes or something. I don't know how skate shoes evolved to be what they are today but they're TERRIBLE.

    ^The beginning of the end was when skate companies started using cup soles. But there were still a few good years. Two shoes I'd like to see back--the vans salman agah with the vulcanized soles and the airwalk 86... Do it, airwalk!

    skaters needed more durable shoes as it became more and more mainstream, and shoes like vans and airwalks were getting torn up left and right. now, similar to how basketball shoes aren't nearly as aesthetically pleasing as they were in the 80s, it seems function is taking precedent over form, which is why many skate shoes look like miniature lifeboats.

    oh man, airwalks... I'm suddenly nostalgic for some blue suede shoes, lol. that was the only model that was acceptable for skaters back in the day, their other models were what the posers/bladers wore.
