what were you a victim of? oh no! not another...
« on: December 06, 2007, 12:10:48 PM »
... lame skateboarding trends in the mid to late 90s thread.


i was a victim of
the d3 craze. i had a pair in black w/ red lining.
big puffy shoe´s in general. the willy santos vans model was my favorite. i think he had a few.
beanies all year.
cargo shorts.
camo pants with big pockets.
beer city blanks & wheels.
sxe band stickers on all my boards. Ten Yard Fight anybody?
wore a hook ups & an american zero shirt with no shame. kill me now.
illusion flips. frontside flips with no flip in ém.
then the surplus penny footage & cliche europa came out and i had t-shirts wrapped around my head.


there are plenty of others but i cant think of any right now. share yours.

I had the biggest trousers back in the day.. I used to shpp in "high and mighty" even though I was 5'7" and skinny
I remember having a stand-up argument with a salesman once because I wanted to buy some like 60" jeans and he was appalled!!
Oh and making custom phat laces!
Oh and I once had some early es shoes that looked like golf shoes.. so heinous..

I seriously thought this would be another Lakai thread. I mean only a couple more and some random lurker could see the first poage and think this was the shoe's personal back rub site.


Oh shit... I've gone and mentioned them. the virus spreads..............

I once owned a matching Elwood sweatsuit - I think I might've skated in it once before realizing that I hated sweatpants.

Big pants, small wheels, slick boards, chain wallets, skating in shorts, shorty's hype
Are you a kook? If you would say this, the answer is “YES”

endless muska silhouette decks.  the ones with the red tail and his shadow as a graphic.
dc mantecas...good shoes, but everyone at my school fucking had them.
thinking josh kasper skating to offspring was the sickest shit ever.
writing/drawing skate-related stuff on my school binder.
skull cap beanie with long hair hanging out of the bottom - middle school classic.
yellow/baby blue t-shirts.
thinking crooked grinds were the absolute best thing ever.
