I thought Consolidated and Nike did a collaboration. Maybe with Steve Nesser ? Or Nike did a colorway without their permission? Someone on here knows.

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? Care to elaborate?

Consolidated had this graphic back in the day that said "Oh, the humanatee." It had pictures of manatees under the sea wearing shorts and it cracked me up. I used to draw it in my high school notebooks. Actually, I still doodle it when I draw with my niece. I wonder if Scott Bourne still skates.

I ordered a pair of their slip-ons a while ago, I’ll be on the forefront of being late

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’m in Japan, the shop that ordered them for me were upfront and said mid-September. I’m in no rush
Hi Cucktard.  Our distributor in Japan just told me yesterday that he got em, so your shop should be seeing em soon! 😊

Sweet, looking forward to them, my current slip-ones are almost done

Is consolidated popular in Japan?
We have an awesome relationship our distributor, Underdog Distribution, and the shops that he works with!  Those guys have always had our backs.  😊

I wonder if Consolidated could make more money if they took this opportunity to become the first alt-right Skate brand...

Probably not, but I mean they can’t be doing well

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.

Haha, that rules!  Yeah somebody submitted that artwork and Birdo also loved it, so we did it!

The shoes you're wearing in the photo that look exactly like Chuck Taylor Converse are just Consolidated CT knock-offs?

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

Number One is an all time fave, I'm just bummed to learn that Jessee was on the team when that motorcycle interview came out  :(

I mean y'all had to of seen it, right?

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

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