I though skate culture



I though skate culture sprouted from punk culture….at least in the East. I can’t speak for the gay ass 80’s flashy Cali skate fashions. The big jeans didn’t really hit until inline skating (read GAY) started up.

I was a snowboarder….never a skater. Just ended up in the mishmash of grunge. Yes, I wore Vans for most of my life…….but I also wore (and still wear) their boots, so is that selling out?

I actually went shoe shopping this weekend…….and couldn’t pull the trigger on Vans or DC’s. I think I’m too old to pull them off. Never too old for converse though.
