2008 Skate Shoes

In the skateboarding world you gotta have some tight shoes. We picked a few skate shoes that will earn you some style points!

P.Rod 2

P.Rod 2 Skate Shoes The signature shoes for skateboarding sensation, Paul Rodriguez, have a funky feel to them. The unique color combination of black with the aqua blue and yellow laces, has a little bit of a futuristic look. The swoosh is also multi-colored with a collage of red, purple, blue, greens and yellow. This is definitely a sick shoe and will make you stick out at the skate parks. If this rainbow of a shoe doesn't float your boat there are five other colors to this model. Oh and did we mention the P.Rod 2's are also a high performing shoe as well? Retail - $85 US.

DC Shoes Gatsby

DC Shoes Gatsby DC Shoes Gatsby has a refined look to it. This is a great shoe if you want to go with the whole mature look (that might score you some points with the ladies). The brown curtain-like pattern with the white midsole gives this shoe a fresh look. But looks aside, the Gatsby is also lightweight and comfortable. The sole is made of a highly abrasion-resistant sticky rubber, so you will have great traction on the board. Retail - $60 US.

Vans Classic Slip-on

Vans Classic Slip-on Nothing beats a classic! The Vans Classic Slip-on is the perfect kick for you laid back dudes. The checkered pattern will never go out of style as far as we're concerned. It's cheap, fashionable and perfect for casual riding! The only down side is the shoe doesn't perform as well as the newer shoes and lacks good support. Retail - $45 US.

Circa AL50 Adrian Lopez Skate Shoes

Circa AL50 Adrian Lopez Skate Shoes While designing this shoe, pro boarder, Adrian Lopez wanted a throwback to the original skate shoes. It has a classic upper style and vulcanized construction. The AL50 gives you traction on the board better than most other skate shoes. This brown leather model has that 1950s look and feel to it. This shoe also comes in three other colors. Retail - $57 US.

    A recent comment on a video gave me this idea , of writing about this whole scenario  the comment was something like this Messi + Ronaldo = Zlatan It was something that made me happy , cuz i'm a Zlatan fan myself , but keeping that aside I'll be honest in stating the reasons due to which Zlatan is considered better among fans  1st - Tired of Messi vs Ronaldo ; For those of you tired of the endless Messi vs Ronaldo debate Zlatan is the middle way , when Zlatan was asked for a word to describe Messi and Ronaldo  he said for Messi - Fantastic , for Ronaldo - Good ( he'd definitely prefer messi since he was in barca , so definitely against Real Madrid , but i'll skip that ) , but when asked about one word for Zlatan - "WOW!" that was his answer 2nd - If you believe in extraordinary and Jaw-dropping stuff; If we talk about Messi and Ronaldo we'll think constant goal scorers and team players and who deliver something great evry time the team needs it , but Zlatan he may also score regularly not as frequent as Messi or Ronaldo , but every time he scores it's another jaw dropping goal , whether that 32 yard bicycle kick vs England or extraordinary volleys Zlatan is Zlatan 3rd Zlatan does things nobody does; You won't see Ronaldo having fun with reporters or Messi bad mouthing his manager even when he is wrong , Zlatan doesn't cares,  like who can forget the epic reply to Arsene Wenger on asking Zlatan to play a trial game , -" ZLATAN doesn't do Auditions" If some of you guys don't agree with me no problem , everybody has their own opinion , and if you don't agree with me cuz you don't know about any of those Zlatan goals or interviews , then you should definitely search the internet for - Extraordinary Zlatan  ZLATAN may had not won the -ballon d'or , but has won large no of trophies and league titles  search for zlatan ibrahimovic - titles and trophies for that

    Well for me, I think totally! Inside that is. When a guy says girls can't play sports I think THEY can't be cheerleaders. But if a guy says girls CAN play sports, yep, they could be cheerleaders
