Hello friends! Welcome to our newest section, “Can it Skate” a video series dedicated to trying out the weird, funny, expensive, and overhyped footwear of the world. We’re talking high heels, boots, slippers, hypebeast shoes, sandals… Whatever you can wear, we will try and skate. Maybe even those dumb 5 finger shoes that health nuts and techies love to wear.
For our first episode we invited Jason Byoun, a very unique backpack wearing skater, to stop by the Gucci store with us and try out a new pair of shoes. After being hesitant, the Gucci floor manager realized we were actually down to drop some coin, and we copped a fresh pair of white loafers. Jason was so hyped he literally skated out the door and continued the Gucci destruction down midtown Manhattan, where the whole video was filmed in only a little over an hour.
DOES SIZE MATTER?
I hit up physical therapist Dr. Kyle Brown for some insight on whether or not our height plays a noticeable role in how we skate.
