Would you rather have a pretty widespread base of reviews saying they're good shoes, but maybe a little plain, or a company like Hours that is releasing a crazy loafer as their first shoe and don't even have shoes for the team to skate?

States are great, I'll post a quick review of the pairs I skated once I feel like it.

I thought I had seen some hours shoes that looked kinda like a Reebok workout lo or one of the club c models. I think they have shit around that we’re just not seeing.

Pretty sure the dude who owns state literally said that they weren't trying to do anything too much wild and play it safe with their shoes for now. That's why they don't even have a cup shoe right now.

At that point why even do it? To me it seems like a waste of resources, everything we produce ends up in landfills.. we don't need more 'safe' product. But thats my biased opinion , I don't like the name 'State', I don't like their image, I don't like their logo, and I don't like their shoes. No personality, no identity. Just a very 'lame' brand TO ME. I could understand the older crowd being into them.. but as a 24 y.o. idiot, I still like to use skateboarding and the product surrounding it to express myself

Regardless of how you feel about them, they aren't going to last. They don't have years to figure it out and playing it "safe" is dooming yourself. They've already played it safe for what, two years? and most of their shoes were sold on deeeeeeeeply discounted sales. This is more of what didn't sell before.

Its a constant struggle for me, Ill think I like a shoe then ill get bored of it a week later.. But generally I like sole tech for cup, and huf for vulc. I also design my own shoes and those are obviously my favorites

If decline survived a decade with no one wearing them state has at least 3 years left. I love the zumiez sales on them though. 25 bucks a pair. Also you can get the high top Strayes in terrible color ways for 5 bucks. Shipping costs more than the shoes.

Dekline had a huge distributor and other brands behind them. State doesn't. Nobody's making money with everybody buying them on sale from Zumiez and provides no incentive for Zumiez or other shops to carry them, which means no pre books, which means no production. I know I'm reaching into the future but I have no doubts that's how it'll play it.

I’d definitely wouldn’t buy em but the fact that they were only 5 bucks had me questioning for a second. But multicolor cheetah Print really ain’t my style

My friend bought a couple pairs a few months ago, they really don't look bad and seem to skate pretty well. Not sure if I could swallow my pride enough for a pair though.

I saw your mom do a ollie to cooch drop straight down the big black pole, it was gnarly. she defiantly shut that shit down.

Gnar'd.

I laughed my ass off over that hideous shoe picture. Then, I read that there's such thing as a lakai sympathizer.

You make a compelling point. But yeah...if multicolor cheetah print was your style we'd immediately unmask you as Braydon Szafraenskeeiy or a girl who loves doing cosplay as that chick from death squad.

Of all the shoes Lakai could/should redo, I can't imagine those would be high on the list.
Those Hawk shoes won't have a lace saver I was told.
