Nike SB buys Lakai and Sole Tech. The Monopoly Begins
« on: May 20, 2018, 03:55:43 PM »
Heard this from a Euro TM. More evidence, I saw Carroll wearing a nike sb t shirt today. Asked him where is Lakai shirt was. He mumbled "No I don't know where it is."

Bye bye bad shoes, hello good shoes.

If they wanted to, they could. They haven't, so I doubt they want to.

Reminds me of that jenkem interview with MJ where he was talking about why dudes go to the Big Company:

"Big Companies may be killing skateshops and killing other brands simply out of greed, but they take care of their riders and help their riders get what they need to get done. They actually go the extra mile for their guys. Its a really weird situation to be in as a professional skateboarder. Do you look out for yourself at the expense of a huge portion of the lifeline of skateboarding? Or do you support the lifeline, the skateshops, and the healthier relationships between the companies and the retailer and make way less money doing what youd be doing anyway?"

Like you said, it'd be nice to see guys on non-swoosh brands getting that big money and that support for throwing themselves down shit for years so they can actually afford to live after their lucrative time in the spotlight is up. It's nice to think that the Core companies will hold it down, but I'd rather see these guys have a better support system as paid professionals too.
a dad gut helps you go faster on transition.

Crip politics are convoluted on some Tolkein shit.

Come on guy..Lakai(HUF) sold out awhile back. I see their marketing strategy succeeded in having you believe that they are still skate owned(Vans pulls it off as well).

He's been out at Crail for awhile now. No idea who actually fired him.
