Element is proud to be a main sponsor of the most comprehensive book dedicated to the History of Skateboard shoes.

Made of Skate, an illustrated History of Skateboard Footwear, tells the tale behind the shoes that carried skateboarding through its colorful history.

“Trashed shoes are like a war wound, evidence of how hard you skate, not something to be embarrassed about!”

Made for skate was published by FAUX AMIS EXHIBITIONS – Skateboard museum Stuttgart in association with GINKO PRESS and is available in skate shops and bookstores.

A limited run of 1000 copies of this book with the special Element cover are also available.
