I'm guess you haven't gotten them either... Being core also means you can have shit customer service and poor quality product because you don't have the budget for quality factories to outsource through.

I don’t know but I do remember looking at google analytics for them last year around the kotr stuff and that brought them the most web traffic in the us since 2009 . Majority of web traffic looked to be from South America.

Not really, but like other small brands, (Skull Skates, Driven, Street Plant) they have a cult following that’s pretty removed from US gossip and tastes.

I just wanted a canvas slip-on with more ollie protection, and one of the local shops carries Consolidated

todd bratrud who used to do consolidated graphics, did a shoe colorway with Nike that had NOTHING to do with Consolidated.  Todd said he used the San Jose Sharks colorway, but those colors are also the Consolidated cube colorways and Consolidated was bummed because it was perceived as a Consolidated dunk when it wasn't supposed to be.  It was something like that, if I remeber correctly.  Leticia?

Yeah, you pretty much got it pretty spot on, Christopher.  We didn’t know about the shoe until it was being sold to shops, and they started asking me about it and I had no idea what they were talking about.  It was really lame.  Nike even wanted to call it the Consolidunk, but luckily, Todd had the common sense to tell them there was no way that could happen.

I'm glad Leticia had a great answer. I can't think of anything worse than supporting the extreme-right.


Also, while we are on the subject, I firmly believe that Todd's shoe combined with the infamous ultimatum is what made Nike legitimate among the core. I remember right after these two incidents a certain core dude who likes sombrero footage was rocking Nike and all the local dominos fell behind him. After this guy went against Consolidated and sided with the swoosh it was all over. (Not saying it was all him, but his defection was a really big symbolic moment in the Don't Do It campaign.)

But, I honestly, I feel like Nike boxed Consolidated in and I don't think there was a right answer for the Consolidated here. If they stayed silent the swoosh could pretend Consolidated backed them and the swoosh could continue to steal from the cube's history as a core brand, or Consolidated could make a few aggressive moves trying to defend their history and alienate some within the scene. Either way Nike and its anthropologist market researchers really boxed Consolidated in. (Not to say Consolidated didn't have issues and it was completely innocent, but the game was rigged against them.)

People give P-Rod credit for making Nike, but this has never sat well with me. No one in the core gave a fuck about P-Rod. At the time, he was hated for abandoning eS and Girl.

So crazy, seems like you were living our nightmare with us, with this post, TheLurker.  We did feel that way: damned if we did and damned if we didn’t.  But we just dug deep and then the answer became black and white-stay true to what we always believed...and then it didn’t matter what the consequences would be. 
But yeah, it sucked big time when they tried attaching themselves to us...without either Birdo or myself having Ever talked to anybody there.  When we saw the email from a NorCal Nike sales rep aligning us with them and insinuating that we were part of the Send Help shoe, that’s the straw that broke the camel’s back and just solidified so much of what we felt they were about, so back to war we went...
But to be honest with you, I don’t know who the sombrero footage guy is??  Or at least, he’s not coming to mind??

Leticia,

I’m already obligated to buy the shoes I ordered from the local shop, so you guys are getting my money regardless.

But I would like to know, what are the conditions like in the factory you use to make the shoes? Is it any different than the average sweat-shop run by vans or Nike?

Do you guys have labor standards when looking at factories?

This isn’t an attack, I’m buying your shoes regardless at this point, but it is something (the main thing, actually) that pisses me off about Nike. So I’m wondering if you guys approach that aspect and differently as well

"Fuck Nike skateboarding"

Wearing Cons.  ::) ;D
They’re actually Consolidated Banana shoes.  🍌😊
The shoes you're wearing in the photo that look exactly like Chuck Taylor Converse are just Consolidated CT knock-offs?


Converse wasn't the first to manufacture and sell that style of sneaker. They are just the most known for that silhouette

They’ve been pushing them out for over 100 years already. Who did it before that? :o

Point is they are representing the creativity, originality and DIY spirit of skateboarding by selling inferior knock offs of a hundred year old shoe design. Way to go Consolidated.

Haha, awesome.  Do it!  😊

So is the gnar/kook system ironic or something? Leticia is propped up yet works at the most hated company.

Most my negative rep came from defending these guys


kooked both of you if that makes you feel better.

Awesome. I'm sure it made you feel better doing so.

Hahaha, BacksideWallride.  Thanks, Feedmeseymour.  👍🏼👍🏼

Leticia,

I’m already obligated to buy the shoes I ordered from the local shop, so you guys are getting my money regardless.

But I would like to know, what are the conditions like in the factory you use to make the shoes? Is it any different than the average sweat-shop run by vans or Nike?

Do you guys have labor standards when looking at factories?

This isn’t an attack, I’m buying your shoes regardless at this point, but it is something (the main thing, actually) that pisses me off about Nike. So I’m wondering if you guys approach that aspect and differently as well
Hey Cucktard, yeah, our supplier actually sent us fotos of his factory and I posted em on one of the threads about us on here.  I can see if I can find em.  And he also told us that that the working conditions was something that was very important to him.  So yes, we are very comfortable with who we are working with!

At least 1 out of 4 people in the photo skate
Just out of curiosity, what makes you think Birdo never skated?

how much are  the banana shoes and are they suede?
canvas won't last but if you have a non slave shoe that is conducive to skating, count me in.
if not, i guess it's back to slavery!

They’re our Consolidated Upchucks.
Ok - never heard of em.
I don’t know how long you’ve been skating,but they came out like about 8-10 years ago?  Anyways, we didn’t do that many or advertise them much either...or maybe we just weren’t on your radar.  😊

Yeah...we still have em.  They’re our price point boards to try and get the word out...

The last run was suede, but this run is canvas.  They’re going for like $55-60, and yes, it is a non-slave shoe. We know pricing on shoes is important, so that helped us bring the price down.  But we also wanted to make sure they lasted, so we added the toe cap and Ollie guard.  We just posted a clip of somebody skating in them over on our gram if you wanna check it out...
