his skating would prob improve loads not just from a style point of view if he dropped those stupid oversized clothes .
if i dressed like that it would annoy the hell outa me would feel like i was weighed down by all that extra material getting in my way.
dudes 30 aswell u think by now he would look and say damn my clothes are stoopid.
still whatever style the dude dresses glad hes still skating at 30 im 33 and still love rollerblading the same as the day i first started
keep doing what you love
Dude that was SUPER weak, his clothes are TOO baggy it just looks ridiculous…i mean cmon its not 2002 anymore. The filming was TERRIBLE if i’m ever out there I’ll film you a proper Roll Life Media Edit and show you how it SHOULD be done.
He can wear those clothes and still skate better than most of you, what’s the point? I bet you remember him now. Wear what you want. His clothes would be easier to skate in than the skinny jeans that 90% of the skaters are in these days. Guy is over 30 and still styling on you clowns.
You know one thing that’s so sick about rolling? that a teenager wearing skintight jeans, a torn shirt and a vest can watch a full grown man with baggy swag reppin a slow, solid style, and still identify with the other guy. We won’t fall to the level of having poser bladers everywhere whose greatest contribution to the sport is loud mouthing about how things “should be” or whining about various things others do.
Everyone make friends and do you. Rollerblading is fucking sick. Edit was fucking sick – chilled out tone, could tell he’s big on nailing down his style every trick and blading for the love and the life of it. Keep it up out in Park City!
I have known, and skated with Mike for over 12 years now. If it’s one thing about him it’s that no matter what trends came and went he has always been himself no matter what. When 90% of you were tucking your junk between your legs to fit into the tightest girl jeans you could after watching Farmer do it Mike was still being true to himself. Which has always been to wear clothes big enough to catch large marine animals with. Don’t you all remember one of the reasons you fell in love with blading? You felt like an individual amongst the masses, and it gave you a unique sense of well-being. Remember the black sheep Mindgame ads, shirts, etc. You wanted to feel like that. At one point you were, and then you followed trends losing track of your identity which turned you into the white sheep itself. Rollerblading itself was founded on ideas of individualism, and being/seeing something different in yourself and everything around you. If all you haters actually got your asses out there and skated instead of packing more, and more sand up your vaginas you would likely have better blading skills. Skills that you wouldn’t be embarrassed to show your community. This edit right here in my opinion is what blading should be about again. This is individualism the way it should be. Knowing you are going to get hated on by being yourself with people who SHOULD have your back 110% takes some balls, but Mike D. doesn’t give a shit. He will still be sporting his style in his 80s playing shuffleboard with steez (even if he is already half way there.) At the end of the day this guy has a love for blading that is second to none. He eats, sleeps, and lives blading. Mike along with a couple others are the closest things to siblings I have. I am proud to call him family.
Nick Shand, I just watched some of your videos and they suck dick. It was not worth the time it took to watch them. If you’re going to talk shit at least be able to back up your talk with actual skill. And everyone talking shit on how he dresses, why do you even care? Mike is an extremely sick skater, probably better than most of you and he stays true to his own style. I didn’t think rollerblading was such a fashion statement for you guys. Also, he is one of the nicest guys I’ve ever met. Congratualations on the exposure Mike!
Thanks everyone. Geoff dude never question you to have my back, Much love as always. Everyone with all your positive feed backs thanks and im feeling the love and cant wait to drop something new for all of you. Keep rolling and remember if you are ever in Slc or Park City hit me up and we will roll
Geoff, Your an idiot. When I started skating 20 years ago. It was the thing to do everybody was doing it. It wasnt some black sheep bullshit…Skateboarding and biking were the minority. That was when mindgame was called medium.
Everybody back then looked ridiculous. Who still dresses like they did in 93′. Were rollerbladers not individuals then…Did they not love rollerblading as much as Mike. I dunno either way at the end of the day he looks like a goof ball.
Let this man continue shaming rollerbladers, embarrassing himself in his work place and of coarse getting no pussy.
Fashion Police you should stop trying to teach people when obviously you need to teach your self about being your own age!! Mike is just doing what he loves to do… WITCH IS ROLLERBLADE!! THAAAAAAAANKS!!!
Ted I know shit was ridiculous back in the day…But just because some one person likes a certain style doesn’t mean they are embarrassing us as rollerbladers.. What gives us bad names is people that hate on others and everything, people that look for any excuse to hate someone.. Mike is one of the most positive and caring people I have ever met and you should think about it and maybe stop hating on homie and start being a homie instead!!! THAAAAAAAANKS!!!
Ted where’s your edit? I guarantee Mike will trash your shit in skating period. Rollerblading seemed to be bigger than skateboarding back then, but I guarantee it wasn’t because back in the 90s I was into skateboarding and didn’t know any rollerbladers at all, but there were easily a couple hundred skateboarders at my school. No Ted people with all this neon this and animal print that hipster shit is what people wore in the early 90s. Back to my original question where’s your edit since you want to run your cock holster so much? 20 years you must be pretty good by now right? At the end of the day you are what’s wrong with rollerblading. Semi-baggy is what I like to skate in not baggy like Mike, but not tight clothes like everyone else. I don’t hate on what people wear. If the trick is sick it’s sick, and if it’s executed perfectly with style then even better. Maybe you should get some of this through your concrete skull.
I don’t really care about clothes, I wear dirty generic basketball shorts and decade one shirts with pit stains but man . . . that looks like a dress. Its one thing to go and buy a XXL shirt at Target to blade and destroy, but I bet this dude has to get this mail order or go to store catering to 600lb medical miracles. I like the skating, and by all means wear whatever. This advice has nothing to do with rollerblading identity BS that everyone seems to want to bring up – the shirt is too big in ANY context (rollerblading or not) , it looks stupid now and it did in 2002 and in 1992.
Sick edit mad respect man and to the rest of you stop feeding the trolls on this site just a bunch of idiots with nothing better to do then come on here and trash everyone’s edits to get attention and start shit if ppl want to were vest and girl pants or baggy sweats and tall tees let them do there thing its not hurting anyone there skating just like the rest of us.
Mad props! really good skating!!! You could go down a few sizes in the clothes though other then that your better then half theses pussy og bladers that try to come up on the new generation, and complain that they are to old and cant hang with the new generation. You proved them wronge thats for sure.
not all rollerbladers are rock n roll and looks like a homeless man! when he love the 4xl shirts then let him love! that make this bro so special!
we are one community, we are one!!! so don’t be hatin!
why does everybody gives a muddafuck what hes wearing? Cant you just look at the skating leaving the cloth issue be? i still wearing baggy shit, when im skating and whatever i fuckin do. i dont hate on people wearing that skinny jeans shit, if hes a sick skater hes sick no matter what clothes hes rockin. who gives a shit if its 2002 or 2012? let your pants sag!
I wonder if you can find so much hate under skateboarding edits or forums. Each fuckin edit or section – HATRED, pants too tight, pants too baggy, small obstacle skating, too tech, GAPS TOO HIGH. ROLLERNEWS – DISABLE COMMENTS PLEASE cause I hate what rollerblading people have to mentally offer nowadays. About the edit itself – I love this baggy style, can’t see much of it now. Smooth chilled out skating and for god’s sake he’s 30. I wish all of you haters to ao topsoul nipple high ledges when you reach 30. Period.
Yeahhh Mike. Killed it. Pay no attention to these haters. And damn, Nick Shand, if you’re going to call someone out on the editing and filming at least be somewhat good at it yourself!! I’m 35 and love this dude’s style. Fuck do I care what he wears!!? Skating looked pretty damn dope to me! Only complaint I have is that I did not get enough of the ‘documentary’ style interview. Would have liked to hear more, coming from dire straits myself. The edit was a bit long but still very much on point.
To all the negative people on this post, go fuck yourselves. Mike is still holding it down and has always been one hell of an athlete. I would personally prefer to see a thuggish little Mike D over a nutsack protruding from your jeggins. Call me crazy but I think we should all be so lucky to have the strength in us to murder it when we are 30.
