A good friend of mine and Blackspot band mate Scott Lytle helped design a really cool skate shoe for Adidas and Rev. It's one thing to be on the outside of a scene to try to capture it's coolness in a shoe, but to actually be involved in hardcore and be friends with Rev and the bands involved gives the shoe and the company's designers much more credibility. The 3 guys involved even give short stories about themselves related to HC. I won't get into the description of the shoe, or the Rev Comp it represents, (you can read the flyer and see the pics) in fact the shoes aren't even for sale. To me it's more like showing off someone's art work, but it's something that can and will actually be used and not just hung on a wall. I'm lucky enough to get one of Lytle's 2 pairs. I told him I don't want them to get wrecked by wearing them, he said "F that! I wear mine every day, I would much rather they get used than stuck in a closet forever!" The bands and logos on the shoe show the time period I think we enjoyed Revelation Records the most, and the shoe of course represents skateboarding. That's why I thought this would be cool. - Sean Fader
