Fucking Plague Horde Holocaust of Hell Barrage.


Vegan skate shoes are hard to come by. But vegan skate shoes in a hightop that don't suck is like a diamond in the rough. I have the first pair of Barrier Kult shoes produced but never really skated them because they were too big in the size I bought. But they've held up pretty good and I still wear them out. But these new ones are way better.

First. They are all black. No weird grey color in the mix. And the side of the sole is black too but there's white underneath so when they get worn out they have a cool effect.

Second. They are mostly synthetic nubuck and less canvas. Which means they will last forever. Ever since the first Templetons that I got with nubuck I've always favored that as a leather substitute.

Third. The canvas that is in the show is reinforced with some sort of vulcanized rubber or something. So they will probably last forever even more so.

Fourth. OLLIE GUARDS!

The BA.KU is probably one of the more interesting crews in skateboarding right now and no one is really doing what they do, so I actually respect them. It's cool that they keep their identities secret and aren't looking for fame... it's like they're just skating to skate.

Either way these shoes rule and they give you some BA.KU patches and stuff in the box with the shoe.
