"I fail to see the "Sport" associated with such a barbaric act of killing this beautiful beast of the Oceans. Human beings, according to most medical data, house a superior brain to any living thing on this Earth, yet, everyday, we see this battle of man and animal played out, as if the animal had a hell of a chance to succeed...What I do not understand is what kind of pleasure do you get from killing this wonderful and majestic animal, even if it were a contest, what personal pleasure do you derive from ending its life...???...it belongs in the Ocean and yet, your so called, "superior" brain, told you to kill it, take it out of its environment & stand next to it for a photographic record of the violent event....Please, try and understand what we are trying to convey to you people, who take pleasure in ending a life of this and other living things, here on Earth...Let them live, as they are God's Creatures and He put them here for other reasons and not so that you could spend a day, wallowing in its blood & salt water, for yes, a photographic record of this barbaric event...Let the animals and other creatures live, if possible, for I see no benefit to mankind, or to the field of medicine or any other necessary event that would allow mankind to benefit from the death of this most Majestic Beast..."
Nike SB has just released the Zoom FP skate shoe. Now, the skate community has accepted Nike from the start with the Dunks and the first Jordans, and all those other classic shoes that were good to skate in as well as steezy. That said, every time Nike tries to bring in the technology that they've acquired from research in their other sports, technology that looks a bit odd in terms of skateboarding shoes, the skate community is like, "Um..."
Street skateboarding happens on the streets. Duh, but the thing is when you're on the streets is it's all about style. Michael Jordan and Kobe Bryant may wear some crazy, furturistic kicks on the court, but when they're out on the town you can be guaranteed their feet scream steez. And for the most part technology-forward, space-aged footwear isn't very stylish when it comes to casually cruising the town.
Get it. Skateboarding's community thinks of itself in terms of style and art more so than that of sport. If a few minor features of a shoe are going help out only marginally, it isn't worth it if it's going to affect how the skater looks on film and in pictures.
OK, so back to the Nike SB Zoom FP. The boys up in Oregon have tried once again to give skateboarding footwear some new modern "sport" features. This time keeping it as subtle and fashion friendly as they could. And maybe more importantly, endorsed by a skateboard god, Mr. Eric Koston.
This is a guy who has always encouraged progression in the design of his shoes. A few of his shoes on eS were light- years ahead of anything seen at the time in skateboarding, and, he, if anyone can get away with it. "Froston" is one of the most respected people in skateboarding, and can single handily get people to buy things buy simply saying, "these are cool."
Nike SB has set up a mini-site to get across everything that is the Zoom FP. They have the technological benefits, colors and testimonials on display. There's a video of Koston explaining what went into the shoe, and a funny commercial featuring him, Daryl Angel and Ishod Wair going though airport security with their new shoes. There's even a cameo by Chet Childress as airport security. Click here to check it out.
