Louie Lopez - First Anniversary of his first pro model shoe

On the first anniversary of his first
pro model shoe, Cons team skater
Louie Lopez spills on his design—
and what’s up next for 2020.


Q

It’s the one-year anniversary of the Louie Lopez Pro.
How’s that feel?


A

It’s crazy that it’s already been a year. I feel thankful and hyped
to be expanding the collection with new colors this year.



Q

How did you approach designing the LLP?


A

My main goal was to create a shoe that was reliable,
comfortable, simple, and good to skate in.




"That's what really gets me inspired and excited
to get out and skate—pure energy."




Q

What's it like when you see young kids and teens skating
in your shoes?


A

I get stoked when I see kids wearing them. Usually
they’ll say that they’ve been skating with them for a
month or two, and they’re still holding up perfect. That
really gets me happy.
