Then & Now with Kerry Getz

Then and Now: Kerry Getz from Ripped Laces Video on Vimeo.

This “Then & Now” video series has been on our minds since the start of the site.

It’ll only work for so long and probably become one of our more limited features due to the fact that they’re aren’t too many pro’s with the same history and longevity as Kerry Getz. At the age of 37, Kerry is considered one of the heavier legends recognized amongst the industry and his peers for his consistent relevance. Aside from that, he’s stayed loyal to any brand that has sponsored him and in turn, explains his slew of pro models. Any amount of pro’s can turn out a shoe, but how many can say they’ve released over 5 with just one brand?

Generally, complacency hurts any opportunities of advancing any career, whether it be skateboarding or not. Somehow though, Kerry has managed to successfully maintain his career while keeping true to his beloved east coast roots. He epitomizes what it means to be a professional skateboarder and you won’t find another pro like him. Get re-introduced to all of his former pro models leading up to his latest on Habitat Footwear. It’s in finer skate shops now & If you can’t find them there, support him wherever you can.

We looked around and the only online shop smart enough to carry them is BH. if you can’t frontside flip now, chances are that you will be once you have Kerry’s shoe.

Thanks to Kerry for taking the time & having us in his home.

Enjoy.
