Rob Carlos – Sole Technology
Rob has designed pro models for skaters like Keith Hufnagel and Leo Romero and various other skate and non skate shoes. He was kind enough to take some time out of his schedule to answer a few questions.
In regards to him starting his own footwear line, I'm psyched for him and wish him the best. Shoe making takes a lot of energy, patience and money. There's a whole other side to footwear than just putting pen to paper, but having to deal with all the logistics that go with it. It's no easy task. As far as the timing goes? Yeah it's a tough time and this economy is unforgiving, but if you have the means to do it… I say it's a great time. In times like these brands are very conservative and it reflects in their product. So instead of following suit, put your best foot forward and make it happen.
