HALF CABracadabra

I'm a sneaker geek to the Nth degree, and I'm not into any one style. Skateboarding shoes, however, are especially rad to me. As an 80's baby who was too young to witness the glory days of Dogtown, but old enough to watch SK8TV and know about Hosoi, Hawk, Rogowski, and the man himself, Steve Caballero, I'm glad I was around to witness the awesomeness. I wasn't lucky enough to own Cab Highs, or even Half Cabs, as a kid (just black canvas Authentics), but I appreciate the backstory and history that comes with a shoe from Vans that I especially dig and will forever love for its simplicity and unconventional conceiving. And to make it all appealing to hypebeasts, Supreme is involved with this, the 20th anniversary of the Half Cab. Honestly though, it means much more to the skaters and enthusiasts than it will ever mean to all those trend-hoppers out there.
