Lakai/DVS are one of the most recognizable skateboarding sneakers in the industry, and now for the previous month of December they dropped their Belmont Mid in a nice black colorway. Hit the link below to view a more detailed image of the sneaker.
Earlier we posted on the upcoming CONS Black & Gold Pack, now thanks to Converse Blog, we have a detailed look at the Erx 300. The color-up is pretty unique, but there’s also key details like memory foam in the anke area so the shoe will contour to your foot the more you skate/wear it. Also interesting to note is a lobster, yes, a lobster, on the inside of the label on the tongue. Check out more images below and expect these to hit retailers in February ‘09.Just a few months ago, word was confirmed that Converse was back in the skate game. They launched a brand new website showcasing their team, and most importantly, they’re brand new lineup of skate shoes - CONS. Now CONS updated their site with the Black & Cold Pack, which consists of the high-top Erx 300 model in a smooth black/gold/red color-up (above) along with the CTS model in black perforated leather with gold and red accents - straight up butter. The Black & Gold Erx 300 will retail for $90 while the CTS Black Perforated will retail for $70. Available 2/15/09. See detailed images below.
Back in February, we saw Travis Pastrana’s custom gold Pro Spec 1.0 racing shoes, but now you can get your hands on some Pro Spec 1.0’s as well as official Subaru Team Gear. There’s plenty of tees, hats, and jackets, all featuring Rally Car logos and homages to top guns Travis Pastrana and Ken Block. Pictured above is the Volcano SRT ($80), but also check out other rally-inspired gear like Pro Spec 1.0 ($199.99) and Chicane $124.99) shoes below. Available now through the DC Online Store.
According to Weartested, the latest Nike SB Tre AD’s (above) and Dunk’s all have new Kevlar shoelaces, with “Kevlar” printed on the aglet (tip) over a staggered checkered background. But where does this Kevlar material come into play? If you skateboard, you know that your laces rip quickly, so the bigwig innovators at Nike decided to put a strand of Kevlar string inside the laces to prevent them from tearing up and/or breaking so fast. Kevlar is used in bullet proof vests, so it should stand up to skateboard sneaker abuse pretty well. Take a look at the Kevlar inside of the shoelace below and let us know how your laces hold up if you got a pair of new SB’s.
Whether you’re down with flip trick extraordinaire Mike Mo, newbie Sean Malto, or the OG killers Koston and Carrol, the tight-knit Girl skateboard team is one to represent without shame.
