Did Alex Kennedy start the "show your socks trend"??? I know Dak may have been rolling up the pants first (as a way to rep his Stance Socks sponsorship), but I feel like AK is who really made it catch on.

You dudes must know what I'm talking about... This new trend where EVERYONE is rolling their pants up to where they're a good few inches from even touching your shoe. Hell, I swear AK even bought some pants with like a 26 inch inseam so they will never cover your socks!!! I'm not saying I think it looks good or bad, that it's awesome or stupid, I'm just asking if you guys agree that AK is the trend setter. He's surely had a ton of influence in the street world over the past year, I'd imagine that might influence people's fashion choices as well....

They look stupid . Not hating on the riders. But it just looks like you bought kids pants that don't fit ! Mind you , we've had our pants sagging for quite a while , maybe a change is good !

I think it avoids having your pants eaten by the sprocket.

I could be wrong though.

my friend Ian has always rolled up 1 leg to keep it from getting torn in his sprocket.

yea, ak and kriss kyle and some others may have set the trend. i think it looks good with cuffed jeans, but the socks and shorts combo is for swagfags.

I've seen more and more people wearing their jeans like that in the last year or two. I actually think it's something that just started with hipsters and now it's spread throughout skateboarding and bmx.

I sometimes do it on hot days, otherwise it's shorts. I'd never go out and buy that type of shit lol. If that's AK's style more power to him. Hes just keepin it real.. I don't see it as a bad thing if others people become influenced, it's only clothing.
