Why are these called trucker hats? Do truckers sweat through the head more than your average cut of society?

For as long as the three decades we've been around in skateboarding, these hats have always been around.

Technical specs on the Wayland include a reverse wrap vulcanized sole, 100% cow suede vamp and heel, 8oz canvas quarter, polyurethane in the sole, and an internal heel stabilizer.
The crew of skateboarders over at Dekline has over a decade in making shoes for us to shred. With a team like Aaron Jaws Homoki, Nick Merlino, Blake Carpenter, and more, Dekline has you covered on footwear from jumping off buildings down to balancing tech on two wheels. We're hyped to have them in The Boardr Store with them being one of the last 100% skateboarder run shoe companies of today.
Shoes are probably the single most important thing in skateboarding outside of your skateboard itself. Function matters of course, but the judgement cast on you for your choice in footwear can be intense. Let us guide you.
The Boardr is a group of friends specializing in what we have loved since first sight: skateboarding.
