How is it that no skate shops carry plain black magic shoes – just distracting patterns and materials? I don’t want checkers or skulls or Iron Maiden or leather or suede. Just black canvas. Please. Do they really expect me to go to the mall to get my magic fix? If that’s the case I’ll live with the holes and subsequently destroyed socks.

Speaking of skate shops, turns out there is more than one skate related enterprise in my neighborhood. Sort of. But I see the Pharmacy video is online in its entirety showcasing all of Portland’s finest/dirtiest spots.

Thanks guys for using Flickr long before I gave in.

    You could always order them from the big E(B).

    My favorite shop had the black leather ones. Gross. E(B) with no employee discount + shipping? Gross.

    Ha, I know. I don’t even shop there anymore. I haven’t bought shoes in forever.
