Today, skateboard footwear is an $800-million-a-year market. And everyone wears skate shoes - without necessarily skating in them. Skateboard shoes exert a tremendous influence on fashion - and vice versa. But while much has been written about the evolution of skateboard riding technique and hardware, a comprehensive account of how skateboard shoes emerged remains missing.
MADE FOR SKATE tells the stories behind the shoes that carried skateboarding through its colorful history.
MADE FOR SKATE reveals incidents and background stories that have never been covered in skateboard books and magazines before!
MADE FOR SKATE features first-hand accounts and commentary by the world's leading skateboarders past and present, including Stacy Peralta, Tony Hawk, Rodney Mullen, Steve Caballero, Lance Mountain, Natas Kaupas, Pierre André Senizergues, Don Brown, Claus Grabke, Tim Gavin, Mike Vallely, Ed Templeton, Chad Muska, Arto Saari, Adrian Lopez and Paul Rodriguez, together with leading shoe designers and artists including James Arizumi (Nike SB), Brian Reid (Osiris), Jeremy Fish, Andy Howell and Todd Bratrud.
