If you scroll through the ‘Sneaker News Categories’ list on the left side of this page, you’ll notice a variety of skate brands. Nike SB draws inspiration from pop culture and the Swoosh’s own vast history, DC Shoes is known for their hardcore tech-oriented designs, Supra matches the rebellious spirit of rock-n-roll with the freshness of hip-hop without making you throw up like Limp Bizkit; so what exactly is Converse Skateboarding’s identity? Classic all-American goodness, just like the sight of Nick Trapasso grinding a long handrail. Trapasso’s signature is back this month in white, leaving the khaki that colored his most recent release to the Chuck Taylor Skate, and both of these simple if elegant styles are now available at select CONS retailers like Premier.
