Killed my thread, bumping this one. Mike rules. Only 3 Foundation boards I've ever had. Feel like this guy was ahead of his time. Was bummed that he retired that fast.

Kinda surprised I never replied to this thread. I loved Mike's skating AND he was the nicest guy ever. I think I worked on a couple of tum yeto projects that he was in and between that and my years at 411 I never met him, but when I was transitioning careers in like 2008 he came into the Trader Joe's I worked out while I went back to school (it was down the street from Mark Waters house RIP where Mike was living at the time) and he was so shocked I recognized him and was so damn nice. Great dude. Wonder if he still skates?
ok thanks

I went on a Mike Rusczyk bender today and it made me want to know: What shoe sponsorships did he have?

If I recall correctly he was on Duffs at one point, not sure of other shoe sponsors

Ive said it numerous times on my previous account, but itís worth repeating that Mikeís Art Bars part is my favorite part of all time, and a huge influence on my skating.

What barely ever gets mentioned is just how much of a park killer he was. Between the Good Times are Killing Me, and the bonus footage in the Art Bars dvd he absolutely crushed parks in that era. I wish I got to witness his skating in person during his peak years.

Maybe not the most technical by todayís standards, but Mike Rusczyk was sheer quality.
Do you get deja vu, huh?

Feel like he was skating DC Lynx in some of Art Bars.  I recall a line at Pier 7 in the Lynx.  Twas a pretty sick combo for sure.

Heís wearing Lynx throughout his Art Bars part, but also a few Emerica sprinkled in, including the first clip.

True.  That video was like an MJ2 commercial.  Lots of great MJ2 footage in there.

I love when he does that boosted backside flip on that bank in his art bars part and you can hear his buddy scream "Yeah!!!"

For sure Duffs, as has already been said.
