Dickies Skateboarding Utility Jeans are the collection’s debut denim that were built for skate. These easy-to-wear everyday pants feature a regular straight fit that allows plenty of room for movement. Our durable fabrication ensures that these pants will persevere no matter how many times you hit the pavement. The traditional carpenter styling offers added function with a handy double entry rear pocket and a convenient cell phone pocket on the right leg. With your protection in mind, we’ve flattened the hammer loop so you don’t get caught up when you’re riding. Dickies Skateboarding signature red detailing and a comfortable soft herringbone pocket bags are supplied at the interior of the pants. Plus, the durable metal button front closure means that you’ll get maximum wear and tear that won’t give out over time.
Comes in silver, navy and black. Lightweight construction for comfort during all activities. Adjustable strap in back, one size fits most. Logo embroidered on the front with "stay inspired" stitched into the back.
It wasn’t just the spin. He was surfing up walls with so much style, lipsliding handrails, kickflipping driveways, skating benches like they were curbs, and so much other progression that we never thought was possible.
We had no idea how far it would go in the next 30 years. But we knew that, with that part, street skating had changed forever.
Years ago I was walking around Venice with Dan from Juice, and he took me down to the corner of Pacific and 17th. There it was. The fire hydrant that, in my mind, had become the symbol of all that change.
In a sane world—one that not only recognizes Natas’ influence on skateboarding, but also the massive influence that skateboarding has on the culture at large—this forgotten fire hydrant might be plated with gold or venerated in the Smithsonian.
I still visit it like a pilgrimage when I’m in town. There’s a sense of something historic and profound about that place. The site of a literal revolution.
With utmost respect for all the innovators and trailblazers who came before us, we want to keep on inspiring the unimaginable.

Downtown Tupelo was the beating heart of our skate scene in the 80s and 90s.
Any given night you could find a crew of dirty, bleeding, smiling skate rats sessioning at the Brown Bank, Glass Bank, Downtown Ditch, Double Sidewalks, Justice Center, the Library Gap, crewed-up in front of Sideshow, or some place in-between.
Those were heavy times. We were always having to dodge the outrage of the police and property owners, and violent attacks from our fellow citizens.
But most of the time Downtown was a ghost town, and we were the ghosts. Just a gang of suspicious and strangely dressed youths doing something that made no sense to the city around us at the time, but was often the only thing that did make sense in our lives.
Now the same people who hated us then have kids wearing Thrasher shirts to school. You can even buy something resembling our co-opted culture from soulless merchants in the mall.
We were "Banned in Downtown," but now skateboarding is in the 2021 Summer Olympics. Go figure.
The world is a different place in 2020, and Tupelo is a very different All-America city. Downtown is alive and thriving now thanks to some rad people who have invested their time and treasure into the culture. We know better than anyone that the first wagon takes all the arrows. And I guess we're learning how to be gracious winners.
Tupelo, we love you. Change is inevitable—embrace it.
