when i first started, it seemed like everybody in the world was skating these. I was totally unaware who made them. When they did the last re-issue i was too broke. Similar with the EK-01. Id a little more for a fresh pair


another shoe from when I first got into skating. tony hawk and xgames had made koston my favorite skater. These were the first shoes i remember not looking flat and puffy like airwalks. Had no clue where to buy them. went to sporting good stores with the ad, gap to back lip, and nobody had a clue.



duffs gambler, red and gum color way only... no clue why i never bought a pair.

I always wanted these as a kid and never had a chance to get them.

Savier Tim Oconners. Pretty much a Nike Trainer with no strap.



I liked a lot of Dill shoes on DVS.

Vans TNT

Circa AL202

Globe Crenshaw


These are all shoes I had more than 10 years ago. I'd love to skate a pair of any of these again.

Gravis Dylans. All colors. 10 pairs of each color.

Also, these:

Vans Jlays or Fallen Coronados. Both are the best skate shoes in my opinion.

Stumbled upon this while trying to find a pair of ones.  Some older dude from the 80's passed that owned a skate shop and his kids are selling all his deadstock.  Brand new pairs of vintage skate shoes.

Enjoy!

HeadInLionsMouth> what is the name of that lakai model? do you remember the biebel X diamond colabs? defs can get some of them

SHAWN COMBOVER> those fades remind of axions a lot actually

Manolo> you got some nice ones on your list. enigmas probably sucked as shoes but everyone wore them. what was the shoe that klein used to rock like crazy? was waiting for the KC duffs too, funny how that model was so iconic and yet duffs as a brand pretty much sucked (i did have a pair of strombolies (< was that really their name?) back in the day cuz i loved how josh beagle/ kirchart looked in them). the natas shoe really was the prototype (no pun intended) for pro shoes but apparently there was a another (vert) pro, possibly tom boyle?, who was going to get a shoe before him but knocked it back cuz it was leather. link here (#3): http://www.cabas1997.com/2010/02/i-love-skateboard-shoes.html

the jim shoe was re-released by x-large a year or to ago but yeah, defs one of airwalk's more iconic models (had a pair in white leather). never skated koston 2s but did try a friend's pair on and was blown away by the comfort/ support. never tried the escobar but greco could have made anything at that point and it would have sold. probably his best design when he was on vans though (his other shoes were *vomit*).

TwisT> MJs shoe really was ahead of its time; super tech with a super simple design. know those kostons, never tried a pair. those duffs remind me of hensley and/ or jason adams and louie. one pair of duffs was enough for one me though ;)

VCR> never had a pair of vitas (nor did i ever see any in the flesh) #australiaproblems

Fongstarr.> probably one of savier's better designs (was that the one with the story on the sole?). that dill shoe got mad love too!

Lasernaut> nice choice, not sure why trujillo didn't run with these; seems like people would still rock them to this day. early circa shoes were gr9, i had a few JT models and had nothing bad to say about them.

Rusty Shackleford> i can get quite a few pairs/ colourways of the low version of that shoe, or are you specifically looking for it in a hightop/ that colourway?

The Artist Formerly Known As Prince> impeccable taste. saw both (on friend's feet) back when they were released and it seems like both never got their shine (admittedly carroll left for DC within like a month of the shoe dropping right?).

art hellman> YES! fallen re-released them a few years back and i really really REALLY regret not hunting down a pair. love JT when he was still vegan <3

The Muffin Man> watch this space! i will get some dylans

Stoop Kid 2.0> didn't skate either. funny (i mentioned this in the OP too) how some great shoes get pushed out of catalogs so quickly

BMCsteve and peeeekka> great shoe and a great time for airwalk. that design was so stylish and really reflected where j.lee was at at the time. do you remember the ad/ video that went with it (him playing tennis)?

era> EPIC EPIC find. oh man, all those old airwalks and visions :o :o :o

Randozzi> they already discontinued?

YES! had a pair in thar exact colourway and i definitely remember being stoked on them. way better than any of the NTS 2s or 3s that they were coming out with at the time. why don't companies double stitch their cupsoles anymore? oh that's right $$$

If you end up getting them I'd definitely be interested in those Templeton Transists. If they're in an 11 that is.

I always wanted these as a kid and never had a chance to get them.



Me too, but as an adult. They had a black/grey pair with a green jell cell in the sole (I think). They looked so different at the time and were way more radical than Savier.

I had the Natas model, but never had the cash to splurge on the Dills.

They have the Natas here for $125.

these in these colorways.










i cant find many photos, but i remember danny way had a dc shoe around 2000-01 that was pretty dope looking. i think him, kalis, and ave all came out with really expensive tech shoes at that time and i remember being so jealous of the spoiled kids at school that had them when i was stuck with some ugly cab 5s that my mom got me on sale.

Yeah, easily the ones I miss the most and I feel would do well now.  I also had the KCKs in black but white was definitely my favorite.
