Owing to the durability and support inherent in court shoes, basketball and skateboarding have been entertwined over the past three decades plus.  Skaters in the ’80s took to wearing models like the Nike Blazer and Dunk along with other popular hightops like the Air Jordan 1, often with modifications like the scissoring-off that changed Steve Caballero‘s signature Vans into the Half Cabs.  But did you know that Steve himself was wearing Puma First Rounds as recently as ’87 (just two years before the Caballero’s debut).  Click through to see a sampling of riders including Caballero along with some other guys you might recognize like Chrisian Hosoi, Tommy Guerrero and Joe Johnson (no, not that Joe Johnson).  Let us know if this inspires you to check out Nike Sportswear for skate shoes or if it’s clear the modern designs reign supreme, and be sure to check out the entire feature over at Complex.
