Airwalk PROTOTYPE is back!
I didn't realize Airwalk started to re-introduce some of their designs from the 80s and 90s! If you check out the wikipedia entry on Airwalk. You can read about what happened to them in the mid 90s when one of their founders left the company. I see this return to their hey days as a very promising thing. It would be cool to see them in skate shops again alongside top skate shoe brands of today...I can dream! I wish I hadn't picked out the pair of Duffs and DVS's now. Maybe when I wear those out, I can get a pair of Airwalk Prototypes and a pair of Vision Street Wear Suede hightops! Sorry, now I'm having my own 80s day!
Here is some video of Tulio De Oliveira on the Dew Tour...I hope he sticks with Airwalk and can help bring it's popularity back with the youth of today.
and some footage of Andy Mac at the most recent Maloof Money Cup...I still can't believe I got to meet and watch him skate my local park back in 2006.
