You just missed Labor Day sales.

The next big sale time will be Halloween Sales (if any) and Black Friday/Cyber Monday.

Concepts is a legit store/site. Might just be backed up if they got a ton of orders. A lot of these shops are still really small operations.

Yeah I got something from them when they had their last big sale around two months ago. It took around a week to ship but it came. Legit store for sure.

Picked up these 2 at Burlington last night. DC Lynx Zeros for $25 and a pair of Airwalk Ones for shits and giggles for $20.

I used to work across from a Nordstrom Rack and didnít buy skate shoes anywhere else for years. Nike SB, Vans Pro, adidas, New Balance.
This is not my SOTY. I'm telling my kids there was no SOTY for 2021

I wore them all day today and I'd say they're good. Pretty basic / no frills skate shoe. Suede all over, stitched on cupsole, decently padded collar and tongue, but sole feels thin like a vulc more than a cup. Probably could go a half size down on them. Overall a decent shoe for $20 bucks. I think I'm gonna put some better/thicker insoles in and they'll be a hell of a lot better.

Edit- I also razorbladed off the "airwalk" tag on the side and they give off a hell of alot less JC Penny/Kohls vibes .

I hear you dude. My dad and I stood in line for atleast 30 mins, with like 2 checkouts open. There's definitely cretins lurking but the deals are no joke when you can find them. They also had a silver pair of Adidas Puigs for $30, but too small for me.

Seems like the company that owns element and DC just grossly overstocked. Theyíve both been clearancing out product for cheap for months.

Element uses multiple wood suppliers, you can get 2 of the same graphic and one will be BBS and one will be Chinese

Skated a couple of the bbs elements. I loved the shape and for 25 bucks this wasnít a big deal but I will say they donít stay as crisp as a premium bbs deck. Iíd get about two and a half/three weeks and the tail would start flexing a lot/feeling weirdly unstable (almost like it was gonna break even tho I never broke one). That being said for 25 bucks it was still a good deal and the kids at the park didnít mind them as hand me downs to skate for another week or two when theyíd sog out on me. It felt like the quality of a bbs shop deck

Element uses multiple wood suppliers, you can get 2 of the same graphic and one will be BBS and one will be Chinese


I feel like everything to do with Boardriders is somehow just not working for them.  They are said to own Element, DC, Billabong, Quiksilver, Roxy, etc and although some stuff sells well, most lines just don't seem to sell anywhere near as well as they had hoped, so a lot of that stuff ends up on clearance, in outlets or where ever else they try to get rid of it.

Might be that because the reputation for clearance is preventing more normal RRP sales, things just keep going down and down for them, but I really don't know about their business besides what I see and how many cheap boards, shoes and gear they have around, or that people have said they are trying to get rid of as much stock as they can, maybe even in hopes of a better bottom line and sell the brands or something, but that is just shop talk from employees, so who knows.


That said, there are still a lot of decent deals for boards anyway, even if the brand or graphics are not to your liking.  Most recently the Smokey the Bear graphics are on BBS wood with no overt Element logos, but a lot of the others, both team and pro boards, are from China, or as has been said you get one lot that is BBS and then the next lot that is China in the same graphics from different runs maybe.

Quite a few people I know will blank the boards, either get rid of the graphics or paint over them, which is still a lot cheaper than buying something else of similar quality, but it is up to you - how much you want to pay for a board, who you want to support, what you choose to spend your money on - but for some, getting two or three boards for the same price as one is going to win out every time.

I just don't like the "lucky dip" factor though, so I have all but stopped getting clearance Element boards now I don't know which woodshop they are from, as I only ride BBS boards myself.

I talk too much about skateboards.  Sorry.

Theyre a NJ company? The ones by me never have skate stuff, its a bummer. (more in the north/central jersey area)

Lol. Eldee is definitely a human. Heís like a raider on horse back whoís kinda scared to do battle. Somehow he closes his eyes and swings his sword wildly and wakes up in a pile of dead orcs.

I know nothing about the other companies but I mean DC shoes is actually doing gangbusters, has a good skate team, putting out solid models and collabs on a continuous basis and continuing to sell out. Sure, you have the Manteca/Lynx Zero which seems to always hit clearance, but at the very least they're doing better than any historical "core" brand. It's kind of crazy how DC had this godawful reputation with people for the peak mid 00s, and essentially their brand image was dictated by years of repetition, garnering this image as a white-trash bro brand that makes cheap crap. But if you look at what they've been doing, they're only starting to get a legitimate appreciation for their OG releases despite being YEARS ahead of everyone else doing reissues. I haven't bought one item from DC in the last year that I've regretted, and that includes the Kalis, Truth, Clocker 2, Lynx OG, Lynx Zero, Manteca, and Metric.

Yes I agree with what you say about DC and their history there.

The DC AU site regularly has $50 off or maybe 50% off or so in ads that pop up, but you are correct in that the good shoes are very much sought after and I know quite a few people who do still prefer DC shoes over everything else, both younger guys who just like the shoes and older people who were into DC from early on, who like the heritage models as you said.

Not sure if there is a widening gap between the generic Court and similar shoes that are popular with the urban non skater types who frequent the mall stores and then those skaters who are into the better versions of everything, but there seem to be a lot more of the weird and wacky colours and styles in clearance outlets and less of the good ones in skate shops, from what I have seen too.

Someone the other day was complaining they just couldn't find a specific DC shoe they wanted and could only get it online as no local shops anywhere round here had ordered anything from the last pre book or so.  I don't really look into it much other than seeing them around at some places and had to deal with a lot of the mall store clown shoes in a previous job, so I guess that also affects my view of the brands and the shoes.

It might be different there in USA or other parts of the world too.


I talk too much about skateboards.  Sorry.

Picked up these 2 at Burlington last night. DC Lynx Zeros for $25 and a pair of Airwalk Ones for shits and giggles for $20.

i have to know, what's the quality like on the airwalks? i saw a shot of them at a jc pennys and i couldn't believe they actually were for sale after just hearing about them allegedly coming back what feels like ages ago

I wore them all day today and I'd say they're good. Pretty basic / no frills skate shoe. Suede all over, stitched on cupsole, decently padded collar and tongue, but sole feels thin like a vulc more than a cup. Probably could go a half size down on them. Overall a decent shoe for $20 bucks. I think I'm gonna put some better/thicker insoles in and they'll be a hell of a lot better.

Edit- I also razorbladed off the "airwalk" tag on the side and they give off a hell of alot less JC Penny/Kohls vibes .

A few years back I scored a pair of Janoskis for $30 and sold them for $50. Love Burlington, even if it is a wretched hive of scum and villainy.

I hear you dude. My dad and I stood in line for atleast 30 mins, with like 2 checkouts open. There's definitely cretins lurking but the deals are no joke when you can find them. They also had a silver pair of Adidas Puigs for $30, but too small for me.

I swear, I cannot imagine the stress that the workers are under because ever since Iíve been aware that Burlington exists, itís always felt like a massive brawl was about to break out within the next 5 minutes. And itís always the same at all of the ones Iíve been to. Itís tense as fuck haha

Iím old enough to remember a time when Burlington had a zero return policy.

As well as the original jingle: ĎBur-Ling-ton coat fac-tor-ree we do mooore than great coats.í

Another great NJ company.

Theyre a NJ company? The ones by me never have skate stuff, its a bummer. (more in the north/central jersey area)

I did not know this either. They had stores in Washington state and I remember thinking where is Burlington when I saw the commercials with that famous jingle.

if you're local in NYC you can pick up for free. Not for all items but works for some. Lots of Vans (not skate ones, but vaults and anaheim), Nike SB, etc.
