The SIA Collective SK8 is a polarizing new shoe from an independent, black-owned business run by designer Devlin Carter. Why the controversy?
Just check out the comment section on YouTube. Yeesh. A lot of people have opinions on both how Devlin runs his business and the silhouettes he’s producing. Press play above to get the full detailed look and review on both the colorways Chris grabbed.
What’s in the video?
In the video, Chris provides detailed information from all the usual categories, providing the in depth information you need. He supplies expert level opinions on the materials, cushioning, traction, support, and fit. Here’s some of what he discusses:
