"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.

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...
