I like the mystery rollout.

Where does the six page portrait series for the debut of Expedition One rank?

It's amazing Puma hasn't put together anything for skate shoes. They went from being the must have cool person shoes of the low 90s to a handful of failed attempts to actually enter the market. Didn't they try to get something going with Ethan Fowler at one point, either before or after he was on Converse?

Madness sold. People rode 'em around here and that's saying something. Hopefully that carries over to Opera.

I'm posting the first five A-Team ads next week. They're something, for sure. It was mostly Rodney's project. There's a few oddities about the brand that intrigue me now.

I believe Etnies sells to people who skate, but aren't overly concerned with what is fresh in the moment. Smaller towns off the beaten path with skate shops probably do OK with them. Also they're maybe one of the few companies making vegan cupsoles, which is basically a non-existent shoe demographic these days that still has a devoted following.

Theories has Free for a whole two dollars an issue. The shipping is probably $10.00. I've been meaning to buy more, but, yeah, more stuff.

Jart is a awkward name with mediocre graphics. A whole lot of people have ridden for them as the last ditch sponsor.

I checked out the Barney Page part. It was good, I suppose. Sour is one of those companies that doesn't register with me. I think I liked his skating in Album.

I'm also stoked on Spitfire wheels. They started making the Classics in 55mm again in the regular urethane.
