2010 Buyer’s Guide Shoe Preview

The 2010 Buyer’s Guide is on newsstand now, so we thought we’d treat you with a little sneak peak of what kicks—from Adidas all the way to Vans—you’ll be finding in there. Take a look.

ADIDAS

adidasBUSENITZ

What was inspired by Dennis Busenitz’s favorite Adidas soccer cleat from back in the day has taken shape into a lightweight, comfortable, and durable skate shoe. The Busentiz comes equipped with extra support and padding inside, and since it’s Busenitz-approved, know the 100,000-mile push warranty is already included.

CONVERSE

PAPPALARDO PRO

converseWe saw this one coming. And that’s a good thing. Anthony Pappalardo has come out with a pro model shoe on CONS. It has a clean design and a classic look, kinda just like Pops if you think about it. We like to call the Pappalardo Pro a perfect fit.

DVS

MUNITION CT MID CHICO X LRG

With LRG set to put out their Give Me My Money Chico vid next year, and with DVS just recently posting Now, a retrospective on Chico’s skateboarding career, this collabo gives you a piece of history while also giving you a look into the future. ENTER TO WIN A PAIR

EMERICA

REYNOLDS CRUISER GOAT COLLABORATION

The Cruiser is where a chiller and a full blown skate shoe meet. It has a low profile look, a simple design, but still has the Sole Tech’s System G2 insole inside for comfort and support. It’s hard to go wrong when it’s Reynolds approved. We Luh dat shit. emerica

ES

FIRST BLOOD

One of our favorite Coors Lite enthusiasts, Bobby Worrest, has a pro model shoe that’s perfect whether you’re looking to put together some lines in Pulaski Park or skate over some sketchy chicks. Huh?!? Just trust us, the shoe’s sick.

ETNIES

MALTO

Sean Malto went pro shortly after his part in And Now dropped, and since everything Malto’s put out since continues to be nothing but butter, we could only guess a pro model shoe was on its way. Well, we guessed right, ’cause here it is. And the colorway? That’s Kansas City Royals blue suckas.skbg10_sho_123

FALLEN

SLASH

Fallen’s kicks look better and better with every single shoe they put out. And 2010 is gonna be no exception. You’ve seen his part in Ride The Sky, you’ve hopefully seen his Deathwish pro model too. So now’s the time you check his new Fallen pro model shoe. Heavy!

HABITAT

QUEST

Yep, Habitat skateboards has branched out into the footwear game. And the shoes look good. The first batch is well designed, yet still has that Habitat flavor that we all love. But what about their team? That would be Guru Khalsa, Marius Syvanen, Austyn Gillette, and Alex Davis.

LAKAI

MIKE MO CUP

Mo knows. So when it came time for Mo to go get a pro sole, this is the shoe he wanted on his toes. Whoa. Nice one Mo. lakai

NIKE SB

STEFAN JANOSKI

Nike took their durability and technology and packaged it into a classy looking skate shoe. It’s about as steezy as a Stefan 360 flip.

OSIRIS

DUFFEL LP

When skating shoulder high handrails, checking yourself into the ER room, and still putting out video parts is all part of your daily regimen, this is the shoe that gets you through it all.

VANS

AV6

Here it is. One of the shoes we featured on the cover of this year’s Buyer’s Guide. There’s no doubt about it that Anthony Van Engelen is a beast, so is it odd that he waers a low classic-style Vans? Not in the slightest bit. vans
