Osiris ● Convert

The real skateboard shoe that you use with grip tape beneath you gotta be made of suede. Fabric? It rips easily. Leather? It doesn’t grip like suede does. Osiris stayed true to the game for decades: they never went corporate and kept providing skateboarders with fine skateboard footwear. True, times are changed, we are not in a market (and in an economical moment) that allows you not to compromise a little. On another hand even if Osiris made a name for itself even in BMX and surf, its skate team is composed of rippers like the Duffman aka Corey Duffel, Caswell Berry and PLG among others. Like this wasn’t enough Alphonzo Rawls, a pro skater from the 90s still killin’ it with a board under his feet, is among its designers. This means that this brand is perfectly aware of what they are doing and they do it right. Therefore Osiris means not only skate shoes, but also the natural extension of this range called lifestyle shoes. Sneakers that you wear when you are done skateboarding, when you go out to eat with your colleagues or when you go to the movies but still you want to show where you belong. Convert is the name of these sneakers here in the hands of Irene B. A sublimated print on neoprene allows the hawaiian pattern to be well defined and ready to be worn without socks during your long hot summer. Just a warning: of all the various versions with all the different materials distributed by Nitro Distribution, this one is the most rare. Good luck finding it…
