Made for Skate book on Skateboard Shoes

Sample of Nike's in the mid 70's they didn't have a clue about skateboarding back then. After three try's they bought their way into the industry. For all I know they might have created this book?

I use to wear Nike's back in the day. Was sponsored by Vans by our local Rep and am pretty picky about what I skate in. I like a sole that is somewhat soft so I can feel my board underneath me. I foot brake and don't like shoes that are too stiff. Thus DC and Element thanks for Mark Miller who has been a friend for over two decades. And Mark and Jeff at Element who support my crazy slalom passion. Cool book called "Made of Skate" has some classic shots and info.
