Do you remember when fitted hats and six panels got knocked off everyone's heads by the big five panel trend a few years ago? I think it was the early days of Odd Future and Tyler that really helped kick off the change in domepiece attire. These days, five panel hats still run strong.
The first and second generation of skateboarders all have kids now that skate. The regular 8 inch wide boards aren't going to do it for those tykes. Minis are smaller decks and completes more appropriate for the younger rollers.
Skateboarding and artists have always had crossover, both being obvious art forms. This spills over into many brands and products we carry designed by artists we're proud to back here at The Boardr. Have a look and support some of the best and most creative people in skateboarding.
Sunglasses are all over the spectrum, literally, in skateboarding. Some are $10, some are well into the hundreds. We've got most of the spectrum to choose from, but it's up to you to figure out the appropriate time and place to run these. Certain people can pull them off at night or in the club, while others just don't look right even with them on in the daytime.
We've been skating for a long time here at The Boardr, so we find it hard to believe that some kids don't even realize shapes are old school, not a new thing started by Welcome Skateboards. Crazy shapes came first, then evolved to the classic popsicle stick, and now we're all in love with shapes again like a high school reunion.
Denim in skateboarding isn't as popular as it used to be, but give it some time and we'll see it come back fierce like most other trends. We still stock a decent selection of top quality denim for those sticking to the classic.
My earliest memories of the bucket hat taking over skateboard headwear was when Earl Sweatshirt started to run them constantly in the early days of Odd Future. These days, everyone has to have one in their headwear lineup.
