Look, you know what I'm talking about. The puffy tongue, thick soles, falling off your feet, usually accompanied by too-baggy jeans and a love of Wu-Tang Clan.
He's back partying like it's 1999, and maybe hanging out with middle schoolers (yikes!). But hopefully, he lives in Dogtown, because otherwise, there's no excuse for wearing these uglies. Besides, nobody wants to share the same shoes as Taking-Back-Sunday-listening, preteen girls.
Maybe you could ask him to clarify how wearing shoes that are way too big for him help him grip a board better.
Let's show him some updates, shall we?
That is soooo much better.
The 90s skater shoe wearer is old school. And probably cheap. That doesn't mean he's not likeable, but it does mean he needs an update. And probably a more recent shower than, say, every three days. The good news is, he has the appeal of mystery, and who doesn't love that? (Will Scooby-Doo ever find out where his last pair of clean boxers went? Stay tuned...)
