Sick of slim, boring, vulcanised skate shoes? Yeah, same.

Think back, way back. Do you remember the golden era of skate shoes, when they had just the right amount of padding. Sure, the board feel was a little less, but so were the chances of bruised feet. Actually, who even had bruised feet back in the day?! It just didn't happen.

ERAone Footwear aims to foment change, and revive forgotten styles. For too long, skate shoes have been skinny, and lacking padding, leading to bruised feet and un-stylish gear choices. This must stop.

ERAone will be a combination of reviving forgotten styles, and new tech-explorations.

Check out Eraone Origin, featuring a 400bs rubber outsole, suede uppers (charcoal), padded tongue and collar, triple stitched ollie pad/toecap, and moulded insole with gel heel support, arch support and form patches under arch and ball. $100 AUD.

Is there a Lakai Store in the Philippines?

None. Your best bet is to buy from We Legendary!


You may also join shoe groups on Facebook and try to look for your specific Lakai footwear there. OLX is not the way to go, as well as eBayPH - only a few pairs are being sold there. I don't recommend buying from iPricePH because it's overpriced - you'd get a better deal from a reseller on FB groups I assure you of that!

With the sneaker game changing so drastically and a new generation jumping into this trend, we thought it was only appropriate that we get the newbies up to speed on where to find and buy skate shoes here in the Philippines.

Yeah, we have lots of skate shops already here, but they only sell limited amount of pairs, brands, and designs. If you wanted a skate shoe and can't find them in these shops, your last resort is to find them online or Facebook groups. Don't fret, because we've found a new gem, who can provide us with a chance to get OG releases that we won't find anywhere else - CoolTure Shop!

Living on the cusp of latest trends in fashion, CoolTure Shop remains aligned with skate culture in every sense. Gravitating toward labels like Dvs, Osiris, Globe, Circa, ES, Lakai, New Balance, DC, Emerica, Adidas Skateboarding, Vans, Etnies, Diamond Supply, they also stocked hiking and outdoor Products, all of which are imported products from USA.

However, expect to pay a bit of a premium, because the merch they are selling are not coming in wholesale, and they are from the US. But then again, when it comes to legitness — in both product quality and purchase security — CoolTure Shop can't be beat.

It looks like skate shoe brands are already setting the landscape for this year, returning to the puff. Especially DC Shoes, with the re-issue of the Lynx that was released in the 90s. This definitely brings joy to my Alien Workshop, Orion Trucks, swishy pants wearing the High School version of myself. A must have indeed. Nose grinds will look so good again! Meanwhile Nike announced Dunk desconstructed which no one asked for (LOL). $110.

Unleash the Fury on the skatepark with the throwback style of these #SkateShoes. Globe Fury features a classic skate shoe silhouette that comes with  uppers of leather and synthetic materials, inner sock construction, Molded TPR underlays for ollie protection and added reinforcement.

However, unlike other Globe shoes, this does not have elastic strips that attaches the tongue to the shoe. The SRP of this shoe is $90, but you can get this specific model (pictured above) for only $55


Nike SB‘s Stefan Janoski seems to have realized that their biggest success comes with floral prints. Remember, the OG 2013 “Digital Floral” pattern? Well, this year, they released a darker-toned floral print that channels renaissance still life paintings.

SkateShoesPH is calling it Dark Floral, with a low-top silhouette featuring an all-over print canvas upper with subtle black detailing at the piping, stitching, embroidered Swoosh and waxed laces. As usual, it sits on a clean white rubber sole unit with white rubber foxing and a gum outsole. $85.




Nike SB Air Force 2 Denim QS "Tupac" is inspired by the late rapper, Tupac Shakur. Paying homage to the Death Row rapper, the shoes feature denim uppers accented by paisley and plaid linings. While tonal laces, gum outsoles and leather tongue tabs round up the design of the shoe. $95.


If you're in the Philippines, you can have Johnny air buy these shoes for you, I think you'll pay an extra 2k to have it shipped to your doorsteps. Or, you may sign-up on Kango Express (a much cheaper option - roughly 1K for a pair of shoes).

P.S. - Put my account number is KX001400 in the Referral Field during the registration process, so I'll get 10$ as a referral :)


Vans has collaborated with global surf team rider Dane Reynolds to give us this all-new surf lifestyle footwear model that celebrates modern design inspired by Dane’s passion for skateboarding.

Available now, this all-new Paradoxxx blends the best of both surfing and skateboarding worlds to offer a minimalist silhouette that combines Dane’s creative concepts with Vans’ throwback aesthetics.

It features a dark denim suede and canvas uppers with retro-inspired lines, a supportive rubber cupsole with knurled sidewall texture details, a new lightweight and flexible cupsole, and an UltraCush Lite drop-in footbeds to provide elevated support and premium comfort. Vans seems to have resurrected the original Vans Flying V logo on this one as shown in the the quarter panels if the shoe. Moreover, they integrated a vintage Off The Wall cotton label for the tongue. $75.


I'm glad I came across these Globe Sabres, haven't owned a pair of these for years, seems most skate companies and throwing out boring vulc shoes left and right these adays. I like Globe even more, they brought back the classic "tongueless" design of the Chet IV's, you just slip them on and the airbags/padding hug 360 degrees all around your feet. It's so comfortable, feels almost like you're wearing slippers but they stay on your feet fine regardless of how loose the laces are, exceptionally breathable as well.

Unlike some other Globe styles, the sabres are true to size. They are very durable!! You can go rock these shoes and wear them into mosh pits and they'd still hold up.  Found this one on eBay and it's a great deal. It's a new pair of Globe Sabre in Black Gum colorway. Get them now! $65.

Nope, this is not a tribute to the late Joe Strummer, guitarist and lead vocalist for legendary British punk band, The Clash - though it really looks like the SB Dunk Lows Joe Strummer from afar.

This is the latest Nike SB Air Force II Low, featuring a multi-colored suede and leather upper in a black, lichen brown, and white color combination. Additional details include black Nike branding on the heel, white midsole, and a brown outsole. $95.

We all know Nyjah - the #1 Street League skateboarder, who has gone from child prodigy, to one of the biggest name in skateboarding. To add to his accolades and X Games gold, he’s now earned himself a Nike SB signature.

Taking cues from the Nike Free series and Air Presto silhouette, Nike SB Nyjah proves that less is more. This Nike SB model isn’t riddled with Tony Stark-esque technology, but sets out to give a more bare bone and natural feel when skateboarding. It features a monochromatic design with a reinforced cushion sole forgoing any air technology. It is more of an organic, but still high performance shoe that you won’t need to waste time breaking in. Right out of the box, these shoes feel like you’ve been wearing them for days. $95.

If you're in the Philippines, you can have Johnny air buy these shoes for you, I think you'll pay an extra 2k to have it shipped to your doorsteps. Or, you may sign-up on Kango Express (a much cheaper option - roughly 1K for a pair of shoes).

Have you found out at a late stage in your life that you are an adopted child? Even though most adoption agencies encourage parents seeking to adopt kids to be open about their past, some parents prefer to raise their children as their own, without revealing their birth parents to them. Such a parent may take this measure to protect their child from pain surrounding the circumstances, but end up causing negative effects when they find out later in life.

Statistics state that 2% of the American population is adopted. Late discovery adoptees have a hard time coping with the news since they feel betrayed and disoriented. Whatever the reason was not to inform a child earlier in life about their roots, it is better to reveal this secret earlier than later. Today, we will look at the issues that such children undergo and how they can cope with mixed feelings
  
What are the common issues surrounding adoption?

Feeling of rejection

Most adopted kids who lack attention from their parents may feel rejected by their birth parents. A child who finds out that their birth parents abandoned them, may grow up with low self-esteem with the mentality that they were neglected right from birth. No matter how much love one may be receiving from the adoptive family, the mindset of lacking something is possible. This reason makes most adoptive parents prefer not to reveal the secret of adoption to a child.

Identity crisis

Lacking information about one’s genetic background brings confusion to a child who finds out at a late stage. You may start questioning your identity and feel the urge to look for your birth parents. Disorientation about your childhood brings confusion as some things remain unclear. This makes adoptees who lack support turn to harmful substances such as drug abuse to help deal with an identity crisis.

Disloyalty

One may be torn between finding their birth parents and staying loyal to their adoptive parents. Feelings of guilt may affect the current relationship with the adoptive family due to not showing enough gratitude to them for raising you.

Grief

Finding out that your birth parents may have passed on without your knowledge causes pain. One may feel regrets and self- blame for things beyond their control. You should find ways to cope with this pain so that you can move on.

Help for adopted child

Express your feelings to your family

Openly communicating with your family about all the confusing emotions that come with the news will help you heal fast. Such news has a significant impact on a person's life and sharing your feelings will bring peace to you and your adoptive parents.

Listen to their side before making conclusions

Enquire the reason they hid such information from you open-mindedly. It may take you time to forgive them for concealing your identity from you, but don't shut them down without listening to their reasons. Avoid being selfish and only thinking about your feelings. Try to understand their perspective before jumping to conclusions.

Find out more information about adoptees

For you to come to terms with the delicate phase, seek information from resourceful books that help you deal with your emotions. These publications and blogs will you help you realize that you are not alone and that many people have learned to deal with a similar situation. 

Avoid unhealthy habits to deal with your emotions

It is not easy to deal with mixed emotions at the same time. You may be isolating yourself in your room not able to face your adoptive parents due to the shock that comes with the news. People indulge in alcohol and drug abuse as they try to find their identity, deal with grief and feelings of betrayal. Find help from drug treatment centers near Maine to break tolerance as you talk to a therapist.

Join a support group for adoptees

Both online and physical support groups are there to help you interact with other adoptees. Choose one that has people close to your age since you may be going through the same situations with an adoptive family. From here, you can learn the appropriate steps to take next in your life without feeling pressured to look for your birth parents.

Don't forget the bonds you have formed with your adoptive family

Instead of focusing on the betrayal, think of the good times you have shared with your adoptive parents and siblings. Most parents who adopt children raise and treat them as their own. Teach yourself to show gratitude for the conducive environment at home even when your birth parents may not have been there for you. This will help you forgive so that you can move forward.

Take time to grief

An ambiguous loss is rarely understood by people who may not be in your shoes. You may not know your parents but still, experience grief. It is normal to cry over them even if they passed on at an early age. Visit their resting place in this case and come up with a memorial for them. Lighting a candle every time you visit their tomb or plating a tree as a symbol of paying your respects, can help you deal with grief. You can also write down the emotions no matter how confusing they might be.

Reduce uncertainty by seeking information

Break the curiosity by learning about your identity through your adoption story. For you to reduce low self-esteem, find out the conditions in which you were adopted as well as early childhood with your birth parents. If your adoptive parent have a picture of your birth mother, this can put you at ease. Learn about your cultural backgrounds and history to understand your origin.

Concentrate on your present

Look at the person you have turned out to be. Evaluate your qualities, values, talents, and goals that your adoptive family has helped you cultivate. Encourage yourself that even though you were adopted, it does not change the person you have turned out to be.

Final thoughts

How you look at adoption and get past your emotions determines your future. Implement the tips above, and you will be thankful to your adoptive parents for giving you a good life. Don't let the emotions affect your future.
