As for if itís a skate shoe brand or not... product description just says:
The functionality and purpose of the shoe is determined by the end user and context. Re-interpretation is highly encouraged and at the core of our design philosophy.

Theyíre expensive but looks like theyíre made in Portugal and likely not in sweat shops, similar to Polarís gear

Very interesting if it's not owned by Nike.

It says "made in Portugal" so I don't think it will be owned by Nike.
The price is pretty high though.

Must be a tiny factory, if his whole company is in that little shoebox?
Is it true?  Or did you read it on the slap message board?

Fuck, I love the idea of taking money from Nike to put up Polar, and then with the profits start an independent skate shoe company. It's too good to be true for sure.

flat shapes is blasphemy

They look beautifully made. The size guide is messing with my head though, they've skipped sizes US 9.5 and 10. EU 43=US 9 but then EU 44 = US 10.5??? Might just be a weird error when filling in the details on Shopify I guess
on the commentary for the scene where jeremy klein rollerblades at that little skatepark he said the actual blader with dreads who was there came up to him and asked him if he listens to korn

No shipping to Australia. That counts out approximately 1/3 of Slap. I wonder if shops that have an account with the Polar distro will be able to get these in?

lol re-interpretation of what? functionality and purpose? of this product description? percieved brand identity? which is what? or shoes in general?

''shoes to do-do-doo stuff in''

same with that 'manifesto' tab, starts out all weird and zany and naive but doesn't communicate anything other then a tire 'buy our stuff, not for us but for you' dogma

''expensive emerica's we're not calling skateshoes cause you wouldn't pay 200E for a skate-shoe''

Suprised by this. These shoes are made and designed by a OG Stockholm skater named Sami. Seems Pontus bought himself in and they relaunched under new name.

Into a lot of what he does, but this just seems kind of unnecessary to me. I don't know. Some of the tees look cool too, but not for $63.

Ironically, the prices aren't too far off what we used to have to pay for pro model skate shoes in Europe back in the very late 90's, very early 00's.

Hopefully this doesn't become another Proper. Good as fuck products, a super interactive owner who listens to the fans but still basically fizzles out.

The price is too steep to qualify as a shoe you're about to scuff the hell out of.

And yeah, the blurb is pretty terrible.

Pontus really does like the early 90's with the lace saver though.

I wear EU 43, which is US 10. (For etnies anyways). Ä189 is insanely too expensive for me.

Yeah, the design may be the same, but the working conditions will most likely be different...
