I'm new to skating but cbf posting this in newbie thread coz well. they're new too.
so yeah. i've shredded up my shoes till every ollie puts a hole in my sock and then im gripping on skin and I've done that to like 3 pairs.
so i was wondering if you guys had any tricks or anything that slows down how long it takes for new shoes to get shredded?
idk like making the leather tougher or something?
or is there just a brand of skate shoe that's more durable in the ollie area than others?

lol sorry man

but yeah. just leather element skate shoes
so you just put the shoe goo on the wear spot?
should you do that when they're brand new? coz i'm going to have to go buy a new pair tomorrow I guess...

Alright, my first pair of janoskis ripped instant, my second pair lasted much longer, why? Because i took water and sometimes spit on the area where they get fucked up, gross? Mby, but who cares, they lasted me much longer.

If you jerk off on the wear spot and let it dry you get about 2-3 weeks more life before it rips. Just don't tell anyone its jizz.

If you hot glue human flesh it gives it some life back into it. Just find a dirty bum and while he's sleeping hit him over the head with a blunt object and when he's unconscious just grab your axe and start hacking away at his limbs. Saving the leftovers is always a good idea because you won't have to do the dirty work every time you get new shoes so it saves time. I recommend wearing glues and used clothes so when they check for fingerprints there will be a lot of suspects so you can get away free! Make sure to clean the flesh thoroughly so when you skate the griptape doesn't get all messed up. And you can paint the flesh the color of you shoe or you can stick it on the inside of the hole so you can feel the squishy sensation of murder. This has worked countless times for me and as you can tell, I get away scot-free.
