It’s impossible to not appreciate how amazing this part is. It’s a shame if you only see this on Youtube, it really needs to be seen in high quality. One of my all time faves.

Not sure how many of you know Guy Mariano’s story but here’s a glimpse inside one of skating greatest comebacks. Click the link below.

I mentioned in an earlier post that we had some exciting new brands being introduced to the store this year. Here’s the first….

In 1993, Mike Carroll and Rick Howard thought they might have a better formula for a skateboard company— one that made products the team would be proud of and kept an atmosphere that was supportive and motivating. While it was a risk, they felt like they owed it to skateboarding and skateboarders to take that risk.

In 1999, facing a similar situation in respect to footwear, Mike and Rick introduced Lakai Limited Footwear with the same dedication and pride they have always invested into their skateboarding and the Girl/Chocolate brands. Simply stated, they are “The Shoes We Skate”.

Sideways is proud to present our first offering of Lakai Limited Footwear.
