Just bought the yellow colorway from Cowtown. If these skate and last anywhere near blazers I will fully back these. Would gladly pay 10 more bucks just to know who Iím supporting. Hopefully they skate well. Those pics look good Iím hyped.

Doesnít Pontus have a sketchy rep?   People have been alluding to it for years on here

He's crazy but the right type of crazy in my opinion - the kind skateboarding needs to bring originality to the table. Super dedicated to his vision of skating and of what the ideal brand should be (which you have to be if you're going to start one, or several), which occasionally clashes with people, there are some funny stories but nothing extraordinarily indecent that I know of. Think Puleo with business sense, and socially harmless, who also used to film his dick. Also a phenomenal skateboarder in person.

I remember being a younger teen and getting a copy of 'strongest of the strange', put that shit in only to see it opening with super 8 footage of a man in white long johns with a covered face dropping his pants and showing his dick. I was very confused as the last video I got before that was Almost round 3 and Flip Really Sorry.

Oh, for one I certainly won't fight you over this. Honestly I always found it kind of crazy how people used to worship In Search Of The Miraculous all the while having never seen the first film, which I find is so much more authentic.

more shit made in China... but it's sk8r owned!

make a team, pay them an awesome wage. maybe give them health insurance.

Otherwise, this, like every other brand is no different than Lakai Korea.

What's so fucking wrong with 'Lakai Korea"?

I'm skating two pairs at the moment. Amazing shoes.

You've been brain washed by the corpos to think skate shoes are bad. You just buy those sneakers nike makes.

Anyone else noticed the Vans Salman Agah vibes here? Good to see euro riders building their thing.

AB-solutely. It's way more that first Agah shoe minus the toecap than it is a cons one-star.

Edit: I'm with Silhouette on the clean shoe argument. Also, while I can understand how someone might think of skating as aspirational--I'd say Stevie Williams could be a good example of that--it's definitely not that for many of us.

Glad I'm not the only one. This is exactly what I described them as. I'm game but don't want to order online, would rather try on.

Tried a pair on last week and was really impressed with the quality.
They fit true to size in my opinion and felt great right off the bat. Hoping my local shop still has a pair in my size come Friday.

I know the canvas mid are dropping in April for the third drop, so maybe those suede will drop sooner.
Possibilities are everywhere, search and enjoy.

I donīt know why but these look like old US-made Vans to me, which is a good thing. I also really like the no branding approach. Would try but I donīt skate any vulcs these days.

Upon a few shipping issues, I finally had the chance to try them and it feels like walking on clouds.

Not sure if I'll skate them being a low-top but the quality is insane.

Good fucking work Pontus.

great shoes ! i like how simple it is. i ended up getting the mustards, but all the colorways are well executed. if it was a non-skate brand these would be 50-100 more and have a much more limited reach. hope it stays in business long enough so they can have a whole line of these.

I was skeptical too, but the quality is really good.
