Over the weekend while you were out getting drunk and maybe even getting laid, I was hunting for a shoe. But not just any shoe – I was hunting the new Kanye shoe for Adidas. Now I’m no Hypebeast, but when I heard that the demand for this little sneaker crashed the Adidas app, Footlocker.com, and JimmyJazz.com, and that they were going for $1000 a pair on Craigslist and eBay, I knew we had to get a pair of them. Why?
To skate them of course! We made this clip with Hopps skater Piro Sierra to see what it felt like to shred a thousand dollars via kickflips. To make people remember that these are just shoes. And to make Hypebeasts who are putting them in gold cases feel just a little bit more foolish. So do all of us a favor and send this on to your friend that cares just a little too much about his “dope sneaker collection.”
PS: If you are wondering why there’s no skate audio, our camera got fucked up halfway through filming, so you’re gonna just have to settle for Kanye’s tunes as we burn through his overhyped shoes.

I collect sneakers and love skateboarding, and I think its rad that somebody destroyed them…

Here in the Philippines, there are a lot of sneakerheads that are dying to buy any Janoski colorway that Nike releases then will sell those online at astronomical prices. Wherein if you skate, you will just shred it to pieces without caring if it is expensive or not.

shoes are just shoes. You do not need janoski’s to skate. You can literally skate in any shoe you want. You’re in the Philippines I’m sure you can use your resources to skate just like everyone else in the world.

I am sorry but you are a complete ass clown country bear jamboree if you think janoskis do not make you skate a 100x better than converses or some other bull crap brand. In fact, why don’t you come here to the Philippines so I can personally kick the living crap out of you for insulting the Filippino skateboard community, my email is [email protected] so email me and I will give you a place to meet so that I can teach you a lesson you friggin troll!! I lift weights all day and listen to cool speed metal so you know I can do serious reps plus I have a lot of tattoos and know nunchaku!!!! FRIGGIN TROLL

Janoskis make you skate better?? Uhh no. It’s the actual skater not the shoes he’s wearing. I’ve skated 3 pairs of em and I can tell you they don’t make you skate 100x better. P.S. Luis didn’t insult the Filipino skate community he basically just said everyone has fucked up shoes from skating even in America and also kids here have to tape their fuckin shoes. And yeah I skate and yeah I’m Filipino so don’t call me a “country bear jamboree”
