should we start the “prod off plan b” comments or just let this one go...?

He always has a smile on his face so he's gotta be making 6 figures

It seems like Lakai has started sending him some stuff too. He’s posted getting some Pacifico boxes so he’s at least getting homie boxes. Honestly, it would be dumb not to put him on right now so Lakai probably won’t.

But they keep on the team the ghost of MJ, instead pushing hardworking man like Dilo

Disagree, if you are saying he hops more than kader.
Agree, if you are saying kader hops and typically moves up where in this case he is moving down

There's a difference between "hopping" by choice to hopping by need.

I agree though, its def not hopping if you were never fully on in the first place. You would be a moron to not take full over flow anything. thats why so many guys/ladies are just taking the flower sponsor because they know they will never get on anything else full in the current climate. youtubers / instagram guys are the prime 2nd tier sponsors for them atm behind contest guys and they are basically working on turning all those guys into contest guys.

Lamar should definitely put them on the team. They could use the cool guy points but they probably won’t cuz Craig is whack as hell these days.

He's literally skated adidas forever, and now has been skating Lakai.
I don't think I've ever seen him in other shoes. How is that hopping?
For boards he was skating whatever and Pizza then actually got on Almost and turned pro. Also not hopping.

Kader was pulling a Javonte almost. Probably getting Nike and Adidas boxes the same day.

Am I the outlier who actually thinks he makes the shoes look good? At least the Telfords. I'm glad to see he's mostly avoiding the clown color ways.

The rest of the team does a swell job of making them look like donkey doodie.
Wait till my father hears of this.

They have to put him on right? Would be crazy not to.
Craig is making some good moves lately with the young talent on both teams, Breanna going pro, Royal getting some respect and now (hopefully) Dilo on Lakai.

Imagine they don't put him on. What's worse looking back at video parts where you're in full Adidas gear or lakai high tops where you didn't get paid for either

I mean he bad mouthed Adidas with out ever actually having spoken to them. Imagine what he would say about Lakai if he's cheque was late, or if they had to cut it for whatever reason.

literally was on adidas for over 5 years and finally left because they told him they were never going to fully put him on. sticking with a brand for that long on flow displays more loyalty and less "hopper" mentality than most people in the industry imo.

hope Lakai puts him fully on, he more than deserves it obviously

That’s not what happened according to his Bunt interview.

He was getting shoes for 5+ years, but I don't think he had a formal conversation with them about getting on and getting paid with any of the team managers.

he specifically said that the reason he left is because he finally did have that conversation and they told him that it wasn't going to happen. sure, he could've talked to them earlier on and saved himself a year or two of time being on flow instead of moving on to a brand that was going to give him more respect, but that doesn't change the fact that he was ultimately mistreated and not given his due. he has every right to be frustrated with how things played out there and he clearly wasn't shown the respect he deserves. what he said about adidas was not even really disparaging in my opinion, it was pretty matter-of-fact. nothing wrong with sharing what happened. if it makes adidas look like they dropped they ball, well, that's because they did lol

Their team is officially;
Howard, Carroll, Alvarez, Perez, Riley, Gass, Jimmy Wilkins, Bannerot, Tyler Pacheco, Cody Chapman (uma landsled?), James Capps (looks like a chocolate am?), Nico Hiraga (Lol)
Dilo not ACTUALLY ON yet but i imagine that's coming cause he would be equivalent to getting Dashawn on Toy at this point for Lakai it will be a big announcement i am more hyped on him than anyone else on the team

lakai def needs some non choco/girl riders, this would be a good move and seems like a no brainer. riley, cody and jimmy all rip but they aren't really doing anything for the brand's identity

Weird that they did a Doomsayers collab yet they don't promote those skaters on their team page and is David Loy getting the same treatment that Adidas gave to Dilo?

Greg Dehart (Doomsayers) was officially welcomed to the team in the Thrasher that had the Doomsayers collabo AD.

That part was fucking great.

I like him on lakai and almost. Its cool that hes on low profile teams.
Adidas is a good company but do you want to be a 3rd tier pro and probably never get a pro shoe?

 Lakai has a tight crew and i like that riley, jimmy and cody are on the team. Kinda like frankie on primitive. Gives the brand a little depth.

They turned Capps pro when they announced Trahan on the team. Crazy how far Lakai has fallen team wise since FF. The Fully Flared team was absolutely stacked. I know a ton are on legend status now or retired, but a couple are still relevant and producing footage (Lucas and Danny Brady being the most notable).
