Gourmet presents Quattro Skate in NYC by Taz

Ever since the first season of Jordan inspired silhouettes I have always been intrigued by Gourmet, dunno really what to make of them. I like their design aesthetic, but don’t know anything about how they are made or where, what the thought pattern is behind the work. Should all this information even be a factor? Should it even make a difference?

Take for instance this past week Twiz informed me that my Dita Grand Masters, actually takes some Japanese dude 12 months to create by hand. That day I came home and actually found the box and placed them in there instead of just throwing them on my bedroom floor like I do everyday, but when I bought them I just copped it because they just looked so damn good.

Shit when I was younger I was happy to even get a pair of And1’s as long as I knew no other kid in school had the same shits on, I was straight stuntin. But now I do give a shit where shit is made, quality of materials and workmanship matters, it is because I choose to buy smart, I buy less, I appreciate more, and end of the day what’s most important is if it looks good right?

– T, cool looking shoe and a equally cool video

as a skater you dont care where your shoes are made or value the craftsmanship behind them when you know they are gonna be dead after a month of solid skating. this shit is a joke the shoes look average at best to skate in and the promo is specifically designed to target the kids who buy skate brands but dont skate.
