Help - skate shoe history?
« on: August 13, 2010, 12:58:03 PM »
Hi,
I am writing a paper about skateboarding, where one of the aspects is nike coming in the skateboard shoe market. So what I would need is a little kind of history of the skateshoemarket.

Like in 19... there was mainly vans and airwalk, then that and that company came in... stuff like that.

If you know some mags or even websites that I could use as source, please post it here. There is a lot in the mags, but it would be really cool to have one or two nice articles that sum the history up.
I have already written a little, but I started skating in 1996 and I dont know to much about the shoe market before that time plus I need sources to prove everything.

thanks!
