Watch: This Dude Tried To Skate The Streets Of New York… In Flip-Flops

This skateboarding edit is the best thing to happen to sandals since Jesus

Some weeks ago, while Mpora were hanging out by the Undercroft in London like the action sports tarts we are, a young chap came over and started asking questions about our trainers.

After the initial fear of some sort of public mugging scam had subsided, the conversation was a pleasant-if-nerdy one about the history of Nike SB trainers, and the skatability of assorted footwear.

At no point were flip-flops even considered as appropriate foot-furniture for skating. Skater Tommy Chill (great name – up there with Chris Vile), however, didn’t get the memo.

In this rather stylish looking skate edit, he takes to the streets of new York in what we’re calling flip-flops, they’re calling Sandals, and the cool guy in the office two desks away insists are called sliders.

Flip-flops it is, then.
