Mike V and Airwalk bring back the Reflex. This reissued skate classic reappears after several years in hiding with a distinct nod to Airwalk heritage by prominently featuring the Ptero A quarter logos and an embossed old school pterodactyl on the heel. The story of Mike and the Sad Ho-Ho Plant trick are immortalized in an asymmetric embroidery over the heels. All this mounted on the originally designed cupsole bottom and a skate worthy suede/leather combination upper. The Sadplant colorway of storm grey/blue curacao/autumn glory/black plays off a few old school Airwalk favorites in the Prototype Jolly Mambo and the Prototype 600 Lava. This limited edition collaboration with Mike V. is exclusive to Airwalk.com.
"My first photo for a skateboard magazine was the August 1986 cover of Thrasher where I was doing my signature Sad Ho-Ho Plant - a trick I pioneered. The Sad Ho-Ho plant kicked off the street plant craze and made me a household name in the skateboard world overnight. I chose to use this image for the magical period of time it represents in my life and my skateboard career. To me, it symbolizes creativity, expression and the unlimited potential in street skating." -- Mike V
