Choose Your Own Radventure

You’re looking at the cover of Skateboard Champion, #112 in Edward Packards Choose Your Own Adventure series. And most skateboarder do, choose their own adventures. The kid on the cover chose spandex shorts; a complete set of plastics – noes bone, rails, lapper; tie dye graphics; and counterfeit Nike shoes. The wistful expression on his face? I think the girl in the baseball jersey on the deck just broke up with him. It’s quite a backyard vert ramp though. It looks very 80’s but the book was actually published in 1991, which also looked very 80’s for a while.

  1. Sneaker nerd time: Those Nikes are Air Tech Challenge tennis shoes from 1989, worn by Andre Agassi in his stonewashed denim and spandex days. I never skated in those but I had a pair of Air Flight ’89s (basically the Air Jordans from that year with a different upper) and loved how much more comfortable and durable they were compared to the “core” brands.
