As a prolific lace breaker, I think it'd be cool if shoes with lace protection made a comeback.

No, I'm not going to cover my laces in glue or shoe goo, looks like crap and barely works anyways
Yes, I know you can buy bulk laces from Amazon and I already do that, it'd be nice to not have to do that.

fr i need some converse one stars with lace protectors like the osiris D3. it would look terrible but it would skate great

A little bit of super glue on the shoelace wear points by the first few eyelets does wonders and isn't even that noticeable. A lot less noticeable than having to use multiple knots to keep your shoes intact. Just saying

crop tops are definitely going to be in this next year. I started wearin them when I went to raves this last summer and I see skaters wearing them at the park all the time now. It's a fun way to mess with people who have strict ideas of gender roles. I remember getting a lot of weird looks from all the republicans and cops when I wore one in Nashville.

Sums up everything that is wrong about generation crop top. Caring what random passerby (republicans and cops of all people) think of your belly shirt might be a red flag that you need some sort of therapy. Thinking your changing the world by flashing some belly and showing a little undy to kids at your local / republican cops.

my guy has no idea what a fashion statement is. you're supposed to express yourself in your clothing. Dickies and vans old schools are cool but every skater and poser alike are wearing that shit now so gotta be different somehow, right?
You're supposed to express yourself with your personality. Otherwise you're just a clown dressing silly for attention (and nobody likes clowns)

If I were 19 Iíd wear one. Men should allow themselves to be or feel sexy. Itís 2022 men should stop trying to pretend they donít want to be.

I think I have the body for it but I'm 27 and that already feels too old, but also, constantly telling judgemental older folk to fuck off would get boring very fast ,like what happened in my long hair years.

Funny to see people making a fuss over crop tops as if they were a new fasion trend bucking gender norms,. They were ubiquitous and unisex in the 70's and 80's (more commonly referred to as half shirts) and skateboarding certainly was no stranger to them.

Crop tops is a build thing. Football players pull off crop tops pretty well because of the bulk. Looks a little more androgynous on a lean skateboarder, but if thatís your look then go for it.

Half shirts are cool if you skate vert and can stall inverts.

But who cares if they're cool.

I have this vision of wearing a pink Kirby half shirt with shorts and knee pads, probably gotta get CTAS high tops or Blazers to complete the look. Not sure if I find it silly or rad, but fuck it

Indeed. Contrary to popular opinion, I think there are ways in which we have a lot more gender essentialism now than we did in many preceding decades.

dystopia has to be some type of signifier/meme band for this generation, like how led zeppelin/pink floyd was for kids when i was 13. dystopia logo and album art was always cool though, don't blame anyone for being into it.

Crop top with fringes. Actually everything with fringes

Also ballet flats.

Dinosaurs will be a big thing somehow.

Primitive x power rangers collabo

Gabber and Hardstyle in skate Videos, together with meth for skating longer and gnarlier

Some porn company will sponsors skaters and/or Skatevideos will be releases on porn sites.

I agree. The logo has the ability to appeal to several demographics. It's part crust, part metal, and most importantly, part hip hop/graffiti.

Iíve seen rhinestone hats trending

A 21 year old co worker wants a von Dutch hat. She was wearing flared jeans which brought up the convo lol. Some brown lens aviators and whale tale would have been a hard y2k fit.

The pants pendulum has to swing the other way, we have reached critical mass. The functionality benefit of having the extra room to move is being outweighed by the added drag coefficient.

Notice the pants of the dudes that skate the fastest, they are not the largest.

literal lol at "drag coefficient"

unfortunately i feel the same. I feel like it's gonna start shrinking again. too bad, because I think everyone looks better in the baggy shit, myself included. I'm probably gonna hang in baggy territory for another 4 years

This band is garbage. What's up with their insane popularity?
Now, we used to say we put on our tights to put on the world. So I don't think it tarnishes the image at all.
