Worst shoes ever
[close]
what was your issue with them again? i got a pair from the ebay deal a few weeks back and haven't worn them really at all, only once around the house. super low to the ground

Maybe the arch? Iíve only walked in them and I love/Harare the arch. Iím sure it aligns my foot better but it kills after a while.

Lizard ain't that bad, his parts are pretty entertaining.
[close]
In this tyshawn documentary where his mom said lizard king was his favorite skater growing up. It was like hearing vincent touzery worshipped ragdoll growing up or something like that.

[close]

Theres nothing cringeworthy about liking Lizard King or Ragdoll, if your under the age of 28-29 just know that you purely do not understand, both of them set the bar for what is gnarly in skateboarding and Ragdoll inspired an entire generation of skateboarders skate style and clothing.
[close]
28 year old here, was 13 when I first saw Slaughterhouse, qualifying all of this because it's important to say that Ragdoll and Lizard King were never anything more than subpar novelties who will be written out of skateboarding history sooner rather than later.

Anyways, good for Julian.

I mean we're still talking about them 15 years later and Lizard King is still skateboarding and still a professional. Sure, they're both kooky but they were both doing lots of original things that no one else could do or thought to do. Ragdoll was definitely gimmicky with his stuff but Lizard was actually really talented on a board.
[close]
Agreed, lizard started the concept of Kinda dork tricks, which is great. Gap to firecrackers and boardbashes and stuff. Those werenít legit tricks until him.
Never cared for ragdoll.

Crazy to hear a ripping skater call out a guy i remember coming up as an influence.
Iím old😢

Lizard did Not start the concept of kinda dork / unusual tricks . Someone else says it here, but Ragdoll has at least two video parts prior to Slaughterhouse with gap to firecrackers (on that LA double set Gino nollie or switch b's 180s iirc), jumping onto a board down some stairs, amongst other less than usual skateboard tricks.
Lizard was / is influenced by this style of skating and had his own selection too - 5050 FS boneless out, gap disaster on Wallenberg, scarewalks. He is not the progenitor of it, even if just comparing him to ragdoll.

Kyle Walker 2s. Has to be most comfortable shoe that i've had from Vans.
[close]

Are the straps necessary for them to stay on your foot?
[close]
Strap holds up great. Regular slip ons would always hurt top of my foot when they were new and when they loosen up they never felt secure. Love the design that under the strap its regular stiched in tongue. Adds so much comfort right from the start.
take pic of said tongue? Are there centering straps for it? Seems like its a little bulky around the collar/tongue with the collar padding too. Kinda weird.. minimal paneling/slip on but cup hybrid sole and strap/tongue paneling
