If you have yet to participate in National Go Skateboarding Day on June 21st, well you just don’t know what you are missing. It’s one of those relaxing holidays with no ulterior motives besides hanging out with the family and friends while cruising around on skateboards. If you want to give yourself and the children the best National Go Skateboarding Day ever, build your own mini-ramp or head to the skatepark, and head over to Finishline.com to pick up some new skateboarding gear.
When looking for a good skateboarding shoe, you want something that has a low profile for a nice board feel. When it comes to the children, the Boys’ Grade School Nike Satire Skate Shoe just might be the best skateboarding shoe on the market. The classic vulcanized sole featured on the model has withstood the tests of time for skate shoes, giving the rider a comfortable feel with high durability that will not wear down. The supple suede upper also proves to be highly durable, and whether your kids are just cruising on the long-boards or kick-flipping on the short boards, their feet will stay protected and comfortable.
Now that the kids have something to wear for National Go Skateboarding Day, it’s time to think about what to get for yourself. The Men’s Nike Ruckus 2 LR Skate Shoe is great for shredding it up on the skateboard, or if you just feel like cruising they are great for that as well. Like the Satire Skate Shoe, this model comes equipped with the classic style vulcanized outsole for a comfortable and durable ride. Additional padding is featured on the upper to protect your feet board mishaps, and the low cut profile allows for extra mobility and ankle motion. The materials used on the upper are a combination of durable suede, leather, and nubuck, so you don’t have to worry about wearing them out quickly.
Just in time for National Go Skateboarding Day, Nike has dropped a couple styles of socks that are designed specifically for the needs of skateboarders. The Men’s Nike Stripes Skate Sock feature additional ankle and shin coverage that will protect yourself from those awful board smacks. As the name implies, these socks are available in multi-colored stripe options for a one-of-a-kind look. If you want to take it up a notch, the Men’s Nike Elite Skate Crew Socks are also specifically designed for skateboarding, but they feature even more padded protection as well as moisture wicking fabric to guarantee you comfort all day.
