Kikkor Shoes

I just did an interview with James Lepp of Kikkor Golf. Check it out here. I'll be doing a shoe review as well in the near future.

Skate shoe history

Here's an article about the history of pro model skate shoes. Poor Claus Grabke... image from here.

I was shocked to read that Dyrdek makes as much money as he does. He was one of my favourite skaters back in the G&S Footage/Alien Worshop Memory Screen era. He's done some kooky things over the years but it pales in comparison to the lameness of Sheckler, Vallely and Lutka. Get paid without completely selling out and/or making a complete jackass of yourself... why the hell not.

The Street League thing might come across as corny as well but then again, most skateboard contests do. Why line the pockets of some random execs at X-Games and Mountain Dew when you can support a dude who actually skates and has represented for two decades?

A bit late on this but here's two Gino interviews: one at tws and the other at Contemporary Standard. I really hope he has a full part in the new Chocolate video. Image courtesy of Chrome Ball Incident.

Freddie Couples and his Ecco Street Premiers

Fred Couples has been wearing the Ecco Street Premier shoes for most of 2010. The first sighting was in Hawaii and immediately caused a massive google search for the shoe style. It's lucky for Ecco that they've been getting a ton of air time at the Masters this weekend. I like the look of them, although I don't think they are waterproof, which is a prerequisite for golfing in Vancouver. Pics from Getty Images and Ecco.

Hepburn Skating

My wife saw this image of Katharine Hepburn in a paperback biography she picked up at a book sale. I googled it and yanked the image from here. Thanks to smorales for the Katharine/Audrey correction.
