Description (Brief)
Boots worn by Lane Segerstrom to break the Guinness World Record for fastest speed on a towed skateboard of 78.1 mph formerly held by Danny Way. Segerstrom invented the CornBoard made from a bio mass known as corn stover which consists of all the left over stalks and leaves after corn has been harvested. Using this new and innovative product helps reduce CO2 emissions and creates an eco-friendly industry within the skate community.
