There's Michael Jordan for basketball, Babe Ruth for baseball, and Wayne Gretzky for hockey. When it comes to skateboarding, there is no bigger icon than Tony Hawk. From a child skate prodigy, to the world's best vert skater, to a household name to the masses when the smash hit "Tony Hawk's Pro Skater" hit your PlayStation in 1999, Hawk has had the most high profile and lucrative career of any skateboarder ever.
Kicking off a new season of Complex's "Sneaker Shopping" with the first episode of 2019, Mr. Hawk took a break from his busy schedule of being the godfather of shred to stop by Stadium Goods to chat with host Joe La Puma about his skate shoe history, from Vans with ankle guards, to free pairs of the Air Jordan 1, to Airwalk, to his current sponsorship with Lakai. So what sneakers did the skate legend pick up? Check it all out in the full episode below.
