8. Shut x Etnies Rap Hi
If you’ve been to its shop on Manhattan’s Orchard Street, you know that few companies have the history and credibility of Shut, the first New York City skate brand. In 2008, it came together with Etnies to drop a high-top version of the Rap, a staple of skating in the ‘90s. The colorway — white, black and gold — may not have been for everyone, but you can bet we rocked these for a minute.
