If you're willing to part with a pair of the Emerica Transists for like $40 + shipping (in the US right?) in an 11.5/12 let me know and shoot me a PM

OG Manchesters in any colorway along with the Howard 4's and the first MAriano Lakai.

HATE!> good call on the SLB. had a pair in white/ green and they were pretty much indestructible. sal was on on point with all of his designs.

JB> THOSE mj-3s :o had them in dark navy/ cream but i wasn't skating so much at the time ... i truly regret this. seems like MJ wasn't afraid of still running with a cupsole at a time when every.single.shoe was vulc. i see you like emerica templeton models too which means you are a (wo?)man of impeccable taste. e'S are really blowing it by not rereleasing their classic models; most people would kill for a pair of those creagers/ kostons.

Firebert> might actually be able to score some renoylds 3s, the first two models are like hens teeth these days. any particular colorway you are looking for?

sleepypancakes (and other people who commented on the transists)> i'm not in the US but i'll report back once i get my first stash. anything above a 10.5 is going to be hard for me to get (although not impossible). i'm almost certain i saw a pair of purple ones ;)

all of you lakai heads> please mention the model names you're looking for because i've honestly only ever skated one pair of lakais. pretty sure i'll get some old skool telfords as well as a few pairs of the biebel x diamond collab (think busenitz tongue).

Had those Lakai Manchester XLK's. Skated them till the soles fell off. Most of the shoes I miss are cupsoles.

Shoes I miss:

Fallen - The Trooper
Lakai - MJ III
Lakai- Telford
Vans- TNT II
Adio - Bam V2
Circa - Allie 208

All emericas for me!   ;D

Never had those Reynolds lights but i think they are such a rad shoe. Emerica should do a re-release, i dont think they need any adjustments because they have a pretty clean and actual design!


These Herman 2's where one of my favourite shoes ever, i still have them all torn in my house... the collar was so puffy that felt like pillows on my feet! Miss these days. I still had his 2 next shoes but they dont have that amazing feeling!


These Braydon's were kind of a guilty pleasure at the time but i always liked it for how crazy they were at a time that vulcs reign. Bet they were confy as hell!

Damn some of these shoes bring back good memories.  I really liked those Templeton 1's.  One of my favourites.  I also really liked this Jamie Thomas Adio.  They aren't much to look at but they skated really good

Had a pair of these almost 8 years ago, one of my favourite shoes I've ever skated.

How can I forget about those Puff and Stuff dunk's. The suede on it was premium, but didn't have the premium price tag and was only $65. Good old days of SB.

The white ones... All this thread is doing is making me hate all current skate shoes.

witty pseudonym> i agree! barley should have stayed with emerica, he was such a perfect fit

Loose Trucks Saved My Life> i'll have a pair of telford's for you ;)

Sk.A.T.A.N> funny you mentioned those hermans, i saw a pair in black/ purple. what size you after? saw a pair of g-codes too in 13 if anyone is interested?

skateboardnorth> YES! had them in black. did you ever see the emerica phocus (i'm going to edit my original post now because i really would pay $$$ for that shoe)? originally it was going to be his 2nd shoe on emerica but he left for adio and released the one you posted. kinda similar actually (and they were both vegan models). JT seems to rock the 50/50 model a lot more than this one (another great adio release that i never got to skate) which was a pretty low tech shoe at the time. funny story about this shoe (the one you posted): tony hawk shot a "got milk?" ad in them at the time when jamie was at the peak of his veganism. i doubt JT gave a shit in the grand scheme of things but i think ian mackeye wrote the birdman a nasty letter.

Nallid> sorry mate, not my intention. i am going to come through with some of these shoes so keep your eyes posted. old DCs seem to be really hard to come by though...

Call me mad (as i recall this shoe getting alot of hate before) but id love a pair of these again, they lasted forever and had mad flick because of the plasticky - spikey toe area, also i still think they look pretty G.

I'm from Portugal so the shipping would be too pricey! :/ and i'm a 9US but in these i wore a 9,5... The color isn't that important but i had this color ->

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:

Actually going to get a a pair of the Green & Beige one for pure fucks!

Really like that colorway, I've never seen it before. Of course I had this shoe, also had MJ's second model in white and orange which was great as well.

Always wanted to skate this version of the OG Kalis ever since I bought Photosynthesis:


These Ari Marcopoulos Vans are nice:


I actually found Dill's Etnies shoe really good to skate in. Didn't have this colorway but I like it:


Glad that Ed's first Emerica shoe is getting some recognition, I never had a pair but I always wanted one. Definitely Jason Lee's Airwalk model and Creager's eS shoe in grey and gold too.
