Mark Gonzales sits down at his art studio in New York City to discuss the evolution of adidas’ rubber toe shoes, their involvement in skateboarding and his first Thrasher cover in them.
I really like the new Krooked video. Not because it has banger after banger… or because it has the biggest names in skateboarding… because it doesn’t.
What it does have is skateboarding! Pure and simple. It reminds you of how fun it is to meet up with your buddies and go skate some street…
Screw parks! Go find some spots and skate some sh*t you’re not supposed to skate. You know, get kicked out because you’re not allowed to skate there not because you’re not wearing a helmet or pads… HA!
Thanks to everyone who submitted something! There were so many good ones…(and a few bad ones) but we could only pick one. Congratulations Adrian Chavez! Active and Adidas thought yours was the best one. You win a free pair of Adidas!
