From the undisputed leader?

X Games Shoes

Here’s what the ad in the March Transworld Business says:

    I don’t care what they look like, the big red X is cool enough for me.

    nss arent bad shoes, i grabbed a pair at fredys for 25 bucks, had em for a while and they still hold strong, but those ones look a little lame…. if your really looking for a deal go to BIG 5 and pick up a pair of VISIONS for 19$!!! they are high tops and bad asssssss

    I always see these destitute, chain smoking grandpa types wearing the ones on the right. I think they must sell ’em at WalMart or they’re redeemable with Camel Coupons. The middle shoe is perfect for the cocky teen who will one day become that leatherfaced senior, waiting for a dusty Greyhound to nowhere. The one on the left is actually halfway cool looking except for that red X.

    Do these “NSS” guys still spell their name with the lower case “n” with no accent mark and all in lower case block letters so it looks like “ass” shoes?

    p.s. i hate all shoe companies that don’t make size 15! Bah!

  11. I bought a pair of NSS shoes and they rubbed the bursa sac on my heel causing irriation. MY heel would be inflamed and I could barely walk. It took over a year for this to stop happening on and off after getting rid of the shoes.

    you mean that red ‘X’ is actually on the shoe?!?! I thought it was the cross-hairs of a sniper putting those shoes out of our misery.

    WOw – this is probably one of the gayest brands I have ever witnessed in my 20 years as a skateboarder. I have noting against the X-games as a contest, but a contest as a brand – come one? Especially a contest only affiliated with ESPN.. Whats the deal NSS? Cant make enough money off Big 5 and Kohls..

  14. the 14 actually looks pretty good in person if you take the x off. the x’s are just patches and you just cut the stitching and it comes right off.
