“My belt holds my pants up, but the belt loops hold my belt up. I don’t really know what’s happening down there. Who is the real hero?”-Mitch Hedberg
For the most part, I am not a belt man. For the last 4 years, like many skateboarders, I’ve relied on the strength of a shoelace, a Krooked x éS collaborative shoe string from an early Bobby Worrest Accel colorway, to keep my pants hoisted at a level in keeping with good taste. Alas, on a trip home my trusty lace went missing so I bounced from lace to lace never really finding anything as satisfying as what I once had.
Then the good people at Armourdillo contacted us to see if we’d be down to check out some of their products, so I said yes please. They sent a few different belts for us, the White Riddle, the Rig, the Riddle Flip, the Anvil Moon, and the Surplus keychain all of which are available in their current line.
The belts are quality made, comfortable, and can take a beating when you’re out skating. They come in a variety of sizes and styles and with a team ranging from Corey Duffel to Chad Bartie, chances are you can find something that fits your fancy.
We dispersed the belts to a few of the staff and we’ve all been wearing them pretty much ever since. Personally, I’ve taken some decent slams while wearing the Rig and it’s held up with no exceptions. Our art director immediately wanted the Anvil Moon belt and he’s been rocking it non stop.
Armourdillo makes quality stuff for skateboarders. If you’re tired of losing shoe laces or breaking your old web belt, give them a chance.
