Happy 15th Anniversary Fourstar Clothing

Wow, I feel old. Fourstar has been the only skateboarding clothing brand that I have been wearing since I could remember stepping onto a board. This year they turn 15. In the 90's, a lot of companies came and went. Clothing companies were probably amongst the fastest to come and go followed by board companies (remember A-team?)
Trends come and go, styles change. This is life. Fourstar clothing has done it right. Being able to adapt to the changes I think was the key. That's how you survive. That's how you strive. That's how Eric Koston and the Girl guys became amongst the most successful skaters in the industry.

Congratulations on your 15th Fourstar Clothing. As an anniversary gift, you get Ishod Wair.

Jason Dill and Anthony Van Engelen Syndicate


So I've been seeing Jason Dill around LA recently and have been noticing that he doesn't rock Etnies anymore. Now, It's pretty common to see pros wear vans or chucks when they're chillin', however, I predicted that there was a going to be a power move on the way.

This Agenda trade show previewed some upcoming Vans from the Syndicate line and an upcoming shoe featuring Anthony Van Engelen and Jason Dill. So it's official. Jason Dill is on Vans and why not? Teaming up with fellow Alien rider and homie AVE. Power moves.

Congrats on the cover.

This is possibly my favorite shoe in the closet. From a colorway standpoint, it's perfect. It took a Japanese design firm Fragment Design to make it.

Lunarlon Technology X Nike SB

Nike SB Eric Koston & Lunarlon
I don't understand why every Nike shoe does not have lunarlon technology. This is by far the best, most comfortable cushioning I've ever experienced in a Nike shoe. Better than air, air max, air max 360, shox, zoom, you name it.
Supposedly they've been using lunarlon tech in running shoes for a long time but it took Eric Koston to put it in a skate shoe.
The overall aesthetic of the shoe is very simple. Some might say a bit mundane but when it comes to comfort and cushioning, this is the best skate shoe on the market now.
I got my limited edition pair of Kobe-Koston early and I already want another pair. No, I'm not trying to hype things out of proportion but if you find something that works you stick to it. I'm sticking to this.
