After dudes thread about what to wear skating I went down a wormhole of vids watching guys shred the gnar on blades. I remember in the early 00’s when the sport was peaking (and all things “extreme” i.e. Surge soda) it got lots of heat from skateboarers and often heard the term “fruitboot”. Then I remember the x games dropped all inline events and that was about it.
So what was the root for the demise of the boot? With the style of swerv skiing looking almost exactly like inline will new wave cause skiing to follow the same downfall?
