Inspired by Tony’s creative impact on our industry during the late 80’s and 90’s, The Proto is a modern
take on skate shoes of that era. Designed and developed to provide support and comfort for everyday skateboarding.
The upper’s unique panels were built for durability while its internal sock offers a snug fit.
The nylon webbing strap on the tongue is a nod to the lace savers that vert skaters used to protect their
laces while knee-sliding. The Proto features an all new advanced XLK™ cupsole. An evolution of our team
favored Hex-tread which provides ultimate board feel, added grip, 360 degrees of flex and absorbs maximum
impact. The sidewall shape is designed to help support and provide comfort. The entire outsole has been
sculpted to reduce weight, stabilize the heel, improve overall movement and absorb maximum impact.
