Any shops get the Adidas email that said if they don't take in $10K before end of year that their account is terminated?

They cut us off from having a rep last year, we also got that letter and just barely hit the minimum.
If we lose our account I don't think it will be that big of a deal.

Skaters who work for these brands are very defensive about them
It seems and like to say all the positive things they do for skateboarding
Which is true.

Has anyone that works at Nike/addidas that is a skateboarder addressed
In the pristine world of skateboard media..

Seems kinda shitty to me.. and I started the other thread..

As long as I can still order them online were good, I would even still buy Addidas if they dropped their entire skate team.

Keenan had that special ability to make his switch tricks better than his regular tricks but still let you know they were switch.

I heard about this awhile back. As indicated by the responses here, it seems that while some argue this is terrible and putting shops in a tough position, others will defend the quality of the shoes.

Honestly not a fan of their shoes for skating. Tried the Suciu Adv and the buzenitz and they were waaaaay to slim on my feet. Tried to size up and everything. Had to take them back. They look cool though. Just going to skate Lakai for the rest of my life.

you might have to quit skating soon then
only in skateboarding is putting an adult in a position where they might have to actually work for their income "ruining their life"  ::)

It kills me but... A lot of dumb kids will still skate them even if that happened. Same with Nike I am sure.

similar situation to nike. i'm stoked on this and it makes me want to support them but they're still a multi national giant ass corporation that uses sweatshop slavery......
if they're divesting themselves of skateshops, i'll buy whatever i can get for cheap. i've bought busenitzes and another pair, forget what they're called. campus?

Although I’ve never tried them and am unlikely to, Adidas does score a bit better than Nike on a range of ethical issues

Their olympic weight lifting shoes are great. Skate-wise, I'm sticking to Emerica.

If Nike and Adidas dropped their whole team, including all of the flow riders, half of all sponsored skaters would find themselves licking their fingers and applying that shoegoo to some oldschools.

As a kid wouldn't it be cooler to wear shoes that other people don't have and wear brands people aren't into so you aren't looking like all the other kids who don't skate but wear Jankoskis etc?
Mike-Mo is going to be one of the best if not the best skater of his generation. Barring some kind of career ending injury or drug addiction.

there was so many n't's in that sentence its hard to understand, but i would much rather skate some reeboks or other non-skate branded shoes than an es at this point.  No diss to anyone who wears es they are fine shoes they just dont interest me in the slightest.

Itís because eS once had Tom Penny on the team. Now they give Andy Schrock shoes.
