Sk8-Hi LX “Instant Winner”

Uncertainty is frightening and if we don’t understand the circumstances it’s even worse..  

Amulets, talismans, four leaf clovers, sevens, horseshoes and charms might help to ward off curses and evil spirits, but the unseen hand of fate is an universal human experience. 

“The portrayals of gambling as life’s losers grasping for a shortcut out in seedy parlors and back alleys and the portrayals of gambling as sophisticated amusement have the same, underlying message running through them. Everything is randomness. The straightest of straight arrows could be ruined by one ill-advised roll of the dice. A hot hand could take the last rat in the back of the dumpster all the way up to the penthouse. If the difference between the two is a stroke of luck, who’s to say it doesn’t work like that out the real world too? When it’s laid that bare, some people might get to thinking the real sucker’s game is punching a clock every day for 40 years. No wonder the people in charge are always so keen to make gambling illegal.” 

Try your luck with a classic gum sole, dice details, leather insole and apremium suede/canvas construction. Each pair  of this collaboration comes packaged with a scratch ticket, giving all a chance to win!
