Gaming Icon Tony Hawk Teaming up with Hot Wheels
So, we have all heard of tech deck I think at some point, and surprisingly they are still around. They have in the past utilized different skate brands throughout the years to utilize their designs and options. But this time gaming icon Tony Hawk is getting hands…errr fingers on. So, what could possibly be different on Hot Wheels take on a 20+ year old product?
In a partnership with legendary skateboarder and entrepreneur, Tony Hawk, the Hot Wheels brand continues to grow and expand with its introduction into the fingerboard space, bringing unique products to new fans while also creating an inclusive line for a variety of experience levels. Like skateboarding, finger boarding takes practice to build up the skills to ollie, kickflip, grind and more. Hot Wheels Skate is on a mission to make finger boarding more accessible and inviting to everyone from groms (beginners) to experts of all ages with no rules or limits.
Alright, so what’s the catch? Well, it’s tiny shoes for your fingers! Honestly, it’s quite hilarious and kind of InGenius all at the same time!
