If you’re a real sk8er you are going to buy these sneakers from Etnies and EA. This might make sense. Buy the game, play the game, go out and do it for real. Eventually you’ll realize you suck and go back to the game. Yes, you will break a couple of bones but it will also make you lose the weight gained while you were playing the game. The sneakers look quite nice and Etnies is not a bad brand. Zumies will sell the shoes in the US. No price yet.
