GloBALIzation, simple as that

by Dani 15 July 2017

PANDORAS_BOX_DEF2-1000x425

Made in Italy is often used as a synonym for quality… but can quality be locked up by countries and borders? So what does Proudly Made by Those Lazy Italians mean?

Quality (ethics, culture, aesthetics, practice), this word emptied of every sincere semantic value in the era of scientific method, is the subject of this brief tale. The subject is called Bali collection … or rather Bali connection. Two inputs, one sentence/one scenario: “I would never sell anything I wouldn’t wear” / Bali: The most beloved Indonesian island by surfers around the world. Read the rest of this entry »

After all these talks on skateboarding, Olympics and athletes, we felt forced to develop a new collection of products inspired by athletic heritage, but with a contemporary twist that brings it back to reality and into the streets for the youth of today.

We are happy to present the result of this limited collaboration between bastard and ADE Shoes, based first and foremost on personal friendship, shared values ​​and the technical needs of the founders of the respective brands. This co-op has its roots in the mid-80s when Max Bonassi (bastard) and Fabio Di Molfetta (ADE) were travelling around Europe in search of new spots to skate and started building ramps to share with friends respectively in the north and south of the italian peninsula. Often they were carrying the silver duck tape to plug the holes in their shoes and make them last a bit longer. Read the rest of this entry »

We are proud to introduce you to the first ever bastard Bali Collection! Forget about surfing, the wind blowing your hair and the beautiful seaside.

The Balinese people we played with, love to spend time organizing bootleg races with homemade dragsters on the infamous 200 mt. of the dusty roads around Kuta, and they definitely don’t waste their time with basa-basi (a.k.a. introductory talks). They We’re more “straight to the point” type of dudes, and when we hang out at night, we like to dress nicely.

If you ever had the chance of walking around in the island, then you know that in Bali, there are a lot of dogs wandering around, and sometimes they jump out of an alley or a bush… don’t ever look in their eyes! They may be cute and endearing, but if you’re in their territory they’ll read your staring as confrontation, and bite you. Watch out! Most of them have rabies.

It was too good for not to spread the word in our circle. Read the rest of this entry »
