When Shortys started they changed the skate accessory game for good. In 2014 nothing’s changed. Shortys continues to make some of the very best gear for your board. Black Magic Grip, Black Panther bearings, Doh Doh bushings and risers, and wheels designed to keep you rolling right. SOLE SAVER- super fine grit. is easier on the shoes, won’t eat them up as fast; but has amazing grip. It might be a little more expensive but not when compared to the price of new shoes every 2 months. Keep it Classic.
