shoes you would maim/ kill/ pay a small fortune for
« on: January 21, 2015, 08:42:17 PM »
since we are all serious skate shoe addicts on here i thought i would get this thread started.
there have been so many great skate shoes released over the years that seem to get forgotten in one or two seasons; so painful especially when you find the perfect shoe. anyways, here's my list;

* a pair of zero-twos - i don't think this will ever happen but i loved the hype and advertising campaign when this brand first came out. their team was dope too!


* (canvas) sheep merinos - i missed the boat on these (twice actually with the reissues) and now i wish i really didn't


* emerica ed templeton 1s - i can't believe to this day that emerica won't reissue this one (imo it's was/is on par with the marc johnson's first model). there was sooo many people rocking this shoe at the time of their release; arto basically lived in them.


* etnies vallely 1 - what a beast of a shoe it was. i literally cannot stand a word that comes out of mike's mouth these days but there is a soft spot in my heart for this particular model. tech as fuck and built like a tank!


* vans rowley XLT1 and the shams model - the XLT reminded me of some old-skool reeboks and the shams were basically a bulletproof half cab with a cupsole. saw some XLTs on ebay the other day but it seems like every man and his dog were bidding on them (which just proves how popular they were). bastien and ali rocked them a lot though i don't think they were fully appreciated at the time

(^^^ i had this colourway)


* dukes (first shoe they put out?) - super clean design and you couldn't fuck with jeremy wray at the time (still can't). i had a pair back in the day and loved them. quality was topnotch too!


* kastel - ronnie bertino's first shoe? kastel as a brand aged really badly but their first run of kicks was pretty tight at the time
(couldn't find a good pic)

* emerica phocus - i only found this out recently but apparently this was going to be JT's 2nd shoe after his "i'm going to skate barefoot until you make me a canvas shoe" model. jamie left emerica shortly before it was released (see page 3 of this thread for his first adio shoe which was actually based off of the phocus) but emerica released it anyway sans his name. i had just become a vegetarian at the time and was obsessed with cruelty-free shoes (still am), but most of all i just thought it was a really clean looking shoe. will still skate these in a heartbeat <3


(will probably edit as some more come to mind)

***

the other reason why i'm starting this topic is that recently i've basically found a treasure trove of dead stock skate shoes (think mid 00's) that i'm thinking of investing in. obviously i'm not going to take the plunge unless i'm going to get some sort of return on this investment so i'm interested in what you guys/ gals would be into. some of this stuff is super hard to get so naturally i won't be able to fulfill all of your wishes but it looks like i'll have a nice haul coming in the coming weeks/ months. as a teaser this will be the first pair going up for sale:



staple OG (in lakers colourway) which came out as a limted colab with mita sneakers in japan

probably have some gravis, e's square twos, vans stage 4s, emerica (herman 1/ g-code, templeton transist, reynolds 3 etc.) quite soon...

Ah yeah the Staple was sick. I had at least 2 pairs of the black/gum. Lakers colorway would have been dope.

I've always wanted the OG Takashi Dunk SBs. Black and gold. Fuckin clean. Probably never get them, oh well.

DC Rick Howard Is for sure.

ahhhh good old axions, i personally thought they were all ugly except when BA wore them - he can make any shoe look good (see 99% of savior's models). can't deny that guy's shoes was mad popular at the time though.

edit: weren't those carroll DC's infused with some type of metal? ???

I suffer from flipper foot man! I'm a 12. Alas. Good looking out though!

I have a stash of some late 90s, early 2000s shoes at my parents house. I know there some Es Tom Penny 2s in there, as well as a few old school dunks, back when they were made really well.

I'll grab them and post a few soon.

The Hawks were a 90's model so they went for about 45 ( i paid $1 dollar for them at a thrift store)

Lakai x Crailtap Carrolls



remember the EMB ones? :o
carroll selects aren't that hard to come by but i can't remember seeing that specific colourway in said treasure trove. i'll have a look though

edit: can't really speak for the DC model you posted (i only ever really liked the clocker, carroll/ howard 1s and the syntax) but all of those e'S are on point!

You guys should check #sk8shoewars tag on instagram.
Lots of pictures of old skate shoes, some people are still skating them.
Lots of noise there but also lots of gems.

I was all about Emericas back in the day, and two particular models I loved the most were the Tosh, and the first Heretic. Oh man I wish I had at least a pair of each to just look at.





Also, Es Mccrank, this one. They were indistructible.



When Fallen first came out, the OG Rivals were tight as fuck, I was a lot into Jamie Thomas back then too, wearing flannels and shit, so these were like my dream shoe.

from memory i think i saw a pair of those dylans in brown suede, not brand new but only worn a handful of times. i could get you filters/ filter duro's though ;) or what about those boat shoe-inspired model he put out?

commander> will do, i should probs start a seperate insta account if i really do get this up and running. thanks for the tip

filip> tosh's shoe was another one of those underrrated early-mid 2000s' shoes. i never tried the first heritics but i would always eye them up in the shop.

anyone remember barley's shoe on emerica? or what about senn's?

Yeah, the Tosh shoe was underrated as fuck. I remember they were kinda slim compared to all the shoes that were around, and they had a great toe shape. And everybody fuckin skated Heretics in my town, all the time. You could easily see 8+ pairs every day at the park, mostly the black leather/nubuck? ones. I had around 4 pairs.

I doubt that it can be shipped to Europe (Hungary) for a reasonable price, but thanks  :-[

ES KOSTON 3's ANY COLOR WAY SIZE 12!

LAKAI FADE Navy and white model? I think it was in the debut line of the company. Would fucking kill for those. size 12.

I have a bright ass blue pair of Adidas Ronans (12) that are in pretty good shape if anyone knows of a decent trade they had in mind.....
Also a white gum nike sb lunar gato in 11.5 that dont fit that I have tried to wear twice if anyone is interested in trade or what not...

Might not kill or pay a small fortune since you might still find some of these but having brand new pairs would be the shit.












Never had a chance to get any of these two, always missing my size but really wanted:
