Questions and Rumors: Dylan Rieder’s Next Shoe Sponsor

This would not be surprising to us.

Everyone adores Dylan for many reasons. Some because of his amazing skating in ridiculous pants, others because they want the same pants. We’re too busy gossiping about what brand he will be wearing in the next year.

Mr. Mr. Although it is unlikely that Salvatore Ferragamo will sign it, it is possible to imagine it as a true dream. The benefits would outweigh any cons. Dylan would not object to putting out another pro model. And, honestly, given the recent surprises, would you be shocked if SF entered the skate scene? This hyperbole aside, which brand would agree with Dylan’s design suggestions? This is a real dilemma Dylan would face if he signed with another shoe company.

That is ultimately what made Gravis the best alternative skate shoe brand. They not only offered skate shoes that could be worn at a club, soiree, or wake but they also fit the most unique and beautiful skaters. The Dylan was, at the time, a revolutionary shoe. No matter how many times his shoe was mocked, every time a skater found himself getting ready to go for a job interview they wished they had a pair of shoes that appeared on their feet. If you go back through the countless catalogs from the past three years, you will find a copy of his model. They were not on the feet chic, hipster wannabe Brooklynites. Instead, they were skating on the feet skaters wearing cuffed pants and smoking cigarettes, trying to imitate Gravis’s most beloved pro. Where are middle-aged men, who have not yet been able to find skate-able or fashionable footwear? It’s probably here.

Dylan was a master of creativity at Gravis. Now that Gravis is gone, it’s hard to imagine Dylan moving on. We can have some fun, even though we cannot see the future. Here are some predictions of where Dylan might end-up. We don’t know if he will be as influential or allowed to work in the shoe design field at Gravis, but one of these three is certain.

There were rumors that Dylan and Austyn would land on CONS at one time. We don’t know what happened to that…
