Title: Skate Shit You've Thought Recently..."Who's Bought this Shit?"
Post by: cloudy on July 11, 2018, 10:31:14 AM
i've been enjoying looking through some of the stuff you guys have picked up in the "skate shit you've bought recently" thread. i was thinking this thread could be a play on that.

just the other day, a huge shipment of toy machine socks to my local skate shop had me thinking of other skate-related shit you see pop up and think to yourself "who's actually buying this stuff?" at the end of the day, i guess we all need socks, and they do seem to be of pretty good quality, but i've never actually seen anybody wearing some of those turtle boy joints. somebody must be buying this stuff?

post some of the crazy skate-related shit you've seen recently! (or from in the past. i imagine there's some pretty kooky 80's things out there.) and if you've actually bought any of this stuff, i'm legitimately curious as to why. is the stuff actually that good? are you just a huge skate hoarder? do you like backing skate companies no matter what the product is?

a few things that recently came to mind:

chocolate alarm clock (and, seriously, countless other items on the crailstore's accessories page. i'm down for a coffee cup or something, but some of this other stuff has me thinking ??? - https://crailstore.com/collections/everything/#filter:type=accessories (https://crailstore.com/collections/everything/#filter:type=accessories)):

santa cruz men's lunchbox (no girls allowed?):

creature unisex (that's more like it! LOL, what the hell is NHS doing?!) flashlight radio (*inside the NHS fun factory: "damn, this radio came out way too gnarly for the dudes on santa cruz. what are we gonna do?" "i know, let's slap the creature logo on it!"):

shake junt lint roller (is this some kind of stoner joke that i'm not getting?):

Guilty
More often than not, lately, I've been walking out of the shop with a pair of them. Even if I'm not going to the shop for myself, just cruising along because a homie needs something, I can't seem to help myself. I justify it because I like supporting the shop and giving them my money and they are good socks, thick and soft for skating. At this point though, I have almost every color, so I might have to start buying wax or something.

I have to buy most of my shit online due to living in a town with no good shops. I got a pair of Toy Machine socks from a skate shop up north to get free shipping (over 100Ä). They were 50% off so in the end about the same as the shipping costs would have been. And they're great fucking socks. I've been trying to look for them on sale ever since then cuz I don't feel like paying 15Ä for a pair of socks no matter how great they are. Also they are not widely available at all in Europe it seems, just like most Toy Machine stuff I'd buy. Get it together Ed!  >:(

I used to buy Toy Machine socks until HUF started making socks. Also, Iím guilty of buying that alarm clock when I bought Pretty Sweet and a Vincent Alvarez board. I was just stoked on Crailtap at the time, and felt that I had too many shirts. So, I bought a fucking, alarm clock instead...it broke when it fell off my bookshelf, when the alarm went off.

There's this illustrator in my office who is a weird anime guy. I showed him the dragon ball z stuff when it first was announced and he bought everything he could. He found the world of skateboard collectors all on his own and he's never skated or gone outside in his life.

that's pretty funny. yeah, i kinda get the impression that a lot of this skate-adjacent merchandise is being appropriated by the comic book crowd (see below). hey, good for p-rod and ed though! (i also feel like that crowd might overlap with the cat owning crowd, and if so, may i interest anyone in a shake junt lint roller?)

A friend of mine, that doesn't/never skated but is a comic book artist. He bought all the primitive transformers decks.

Toy machine socks look like the stuff we'd sale to independent toy/gift stores that were against sailing super hero & cartoon stuff.

guy in my office and I both are charles bradley fans and he knows I skate so he showed me the quartet collab they did in memory of charles bradley

I was ready to buy one to skate when i noticed the 8.5" sold out. he bought the 8.1" as a wall hanger (he's never stepped on a board in his life) and couldn't understand why I wouldn't just buy the 8.1" instead since they were "only like a half inch difference"

Sometimes you might get your grip clogged up with fine sand. It gets it off and all sorts of non sticky dirty off too but who cares about grip being dirty unless it's clogging it up and that happens very rarely so it's not very essential IMO. I got a belt sander cleaner as it's the same thing but cheaper. Got a few spots that'll clog up your griptape every now and then.

Toy Machine has some cool socks, I have a few pairs and could see myself buying more. I like socks a lot and they rarely get expensive (does Stance count as a skate company?) and it's another way of supporting a brand that doesn't break the bank or require me to purchase a mediocre to crappy product.

*Edit: I also think those sock puppets look sick and should make a comeback. Does anyone know if they sold well?
