    If you traveled back in time to 1995 and told 14-year-old-me that Nike would have the sickest skate team in the world, well... I probably would have laughed.

    Funny how times-they-are-a-changin'!

    I buy alot of Nike products, they make good shoes. And I'm actually happy he's on Nike than dc which has been pulling some shady shit as of late to get riders. I'm all for supporting skate brands but in this day and age I really can support the hipocracy that has been filling the skateboard community. I don't hear people complain about adidas or converse even though it's essentially the same thing, and truthfully we should be celebrating that a company as vast as Nike is supporting this thing we love.

    the thing is I don't feel they will leave I mean Nike has been in skating for a while and their original team consisted of mainly dudes kids don't recognize like Daniel shimizu and Childress. It's really only in recent years that Nike as a skate brand has taken off

    Nike, a global corporate giant, supporting skateboarding? Man, I don't know about that...
    I understand your point but honestly I'd rather buy products where I know my money is going into skaters pockets or into skateboarding in general. With Nike, that money might as well go to developing new golf shirts or whatever.
    I always buy locally produced shit if it's possible. Wrong or right, atleast I feel better.

    Not trying to start shit here and I respect the other argument.

    That's not the original Nike skateboarding team. They first tried breaking into skateboarding in the mid-late 90s and had Bam on their team... they lasted a few months

    I can respect what Brian's saying my thing is everyone kind of left skateboarding in the 90's it was dead, and I really like nikes resurgents as far as supporting dudes most company would have left a long time ago. I mean seriously they've been supporting dudes like Gino and Danny Supa for a while, even though they haven't been doing alot over the years, and with how sketchy alot of core skate brands have been acting lately it's kind of hard to support some of the core companies anymore.

    Also I don't really understand this whole " their shoes are too expensive" thing because honestly most "core" skate brands are crazy expensive. I mean all pro models cost around 80 bucks these days and just like any shoe you can find nikes for cheap.I have only paid full price for a pair of nikes twice, as apose to shoes like es where I've had to pay full price all the time because of the rarity of shoes in my size. I'm just a fan of nikes from both an aesthetic and performance stand point.

    Fuck my bitch based god so much misinformation in this thread. Where is all the progression in shoe tech coming from nowadays? Lakai? Emerica? Vans? None of them. Nike and sti tech are completely murdering the market with shoes that use technology which actually works. Why would I drop 65-70 bucks on a pair of plain black and white vulc shoes with a paperthin shit foam insole when I can get some fucking rad lunarlon shit or those gorgeous etnies footbeds. The money you would spend on a pair of sb's doesn't go to some bullshit golf shirt. What the fuck are you thinking? You think that all their R&D is cheap? Nike is becoming the forerunner in innovative tech in skating shoes and this tech is definitely a step in the right direction.

    On the snowboarding boot: Them joining the snowboarding culture is a-okay to me. They use all of their previous knowledge in running and skating and whatever shoe they make, and put it into snowboarding, and you know what? It works. It works better than any of the other 5 (DC, thirtytwox2,rome,k2) boots I've used snowboarding.

    Purists ruin everything. Buy what you want. Wear what you want. Listen to what you want.

    It's not like society gives two shits about skateboarding anyways. If you combined the attendance and viewership of every single Street League contest/Triple Crown Series/X-games skateboarding, it still wouldn't equal the viewership/attendance of the Super Bowl...

    Think for yourselves and don't mindlessly follow trends in either direction. I'd wear a pair of Airwalks if I had no other options in terms of footwear to skate in (true story as well).

    supporting nike is not supporting skateboarding.
    supporting nike has nothing to do with skateboarding at all...
    putting the words 'skateboard" and "nike" in the same sentence makes no sense whats so ever.

    if you understood skateboarding.
    you wouldnt even have this conversation.

    nike is not..
    will not..
    no matter what they do for the rest of its lifetime.
    have anything to do with skateboarding.

    if you understood skateboarding youd understand this.

    ive argued with clay over live many of times about this.
    but.
    clay wants them..
    he likes the look...
    there comfy...
    so be it.
    it still doesnt change the fact that skateboarding to nike is purely dollars and cents.

    back when nike started there bullshit the first time kids got jacked and there shoes ended up on the telephone wires.

    for a reason.

    They might make good shoes but the money still doesn't go into skateboarding, hence the golf shirt statement. It's not misinformation, it's an example of my views. Whatever

    I agree 100% with Brian and Demz.

    Nike is about $$$. They don't care about the sport, the culture.

    And this whole "Do whatever you want! Don't follow trends!!" take on it is bullshit. Of course you can always do whatever you want. But that doesn't mean that every choice is equal. Buying Nikes is about fashion. Not supporting skateboarding.

    All of that said, I don't hate on people for buying/wearing Nike. The tech comment is a very valid point, and I like that they're ushering in some new ideas/tech into skate shoes. But I still think truly supporting skateboarding means buying from companies STARTED and RUN by skateboarders. Period. Cut out the middleman/bullshit.

    i've never worn Nikes but if I wanted some I'd just buy some. I don't give two fucks about 'supporting' big brands, small brands, real brands, fake brands, known brands, jock brands, etc etc:

    I skate for myself

    The biggest problem in skateboarding now is people always 'judging' and having an opinion on what YOU do. When I started skating (like many 'slightly' older folk), everyone made fun of me. I still did it though not to fit in, not to be rebellious, but because I just enjoyed going out to an empty parking lot to learn tricks.

    Skateboarding (to ME) is all about you and the board. Everything else is just noise.

    I skate for myself

    The biggest problem in skateboarding now is people always 'judging' and having an opinion on what YOU do. When I started skating (like many 'slightly' older folk), everyone made fun of me. I still did it though not to fit in, not to be rebellious, but because I just enjoyed going out to an empty parking lot to learn tricks.

    Skateboarding (to ME) is all about you and the board. Everything else is just noise.
    I agree 100%. I push mongo and I don't give a fuck about people hating on it. I skate because I love it and not to impress people.

    btw i bought the fuckin nike sb fp's. they wore good and are still in good shape. i perosnally think the tech put into them was smart.
    truth is, it doesnt matter what you wear, just wear it and shred at your leisure. whether you guys like it or not most of the "skateboarding" companies we love are in it for the dough as well as the skating. i mean yeah im gunna make a skateshop and sell boards to my community but in the end i need to make sure im making money in the process or else whats the point. this aint no charity out here nowadays. either you got money or your borrowing it from somebody. in the end money in one way or another dictates the skateboarding industry. you dont have to like it but you might as well live with it... :/
