A History of Skateshoes

Simple Footwear presents a brief history of skate shoes. Yes, the timeline goes past 1997. It’s a pretty lightweight history, certainly no Made for Skate, but is interesting in that a Simple shoe does not appear on that timeline, and they paid a guy to make vector illustrations of 44 shoes from other companies.

  2. I’m 97% sure they used Chad Muska’s first shoe on eS for the Rick McCrank model from 2001. Oops. Some of the info did not seem quite correct.
