Much of the year 2020 I spent on flat surfaces. As a skateboarder I am in touch with our seemingly flat earth, the ground beneath me, the stuff of life - maybe more so than with most of my fellow hominids. Bluntslides felt like a treat in 2020. They always do, but in 2020 there were only a few weeks, in between waves, around summer, when such indulgence was "commensurate with the risk" of COVID crime. As the rats started to awake and venture into the suburbs, I stopped venturing into the suburbs. So, most of the year I spent in parking lots, coexisting with security guards. This is the footwear I used:

I got some éS "Swift Everstitch", vegan ones. Later there were also some non-vegan "Swift". As with éS shoes in general, these were great "straight out the box", grippy, great board control, the perfect skate shoe, except that they don't last that very long. But that would probably too much to ask. Anytime you can get your hands on some pair of vegan éS, probably the best decision is to get them before they're gone.
