Do the dance

Justis Walton generally operates from Chicago, but is constantly on the move; on Instagram, his moniker is Milksnake, a game he's actually pretty good at and, recently, he's been getting close to the Fancy Lad guys - you know, Matt Tomasello's crew (just to mention another fellow Instagram high scorer). Our man also doubles up as an Uprise regular, the skateshop with a legacy every local praises - as this interview with fellow Loop representative Graham Thoms can attest. Now, to the point: Justis is quite the original skater, whose style borrows some from current presentation trends but also, and most importantly, from the best of street skating from the eighties, taking the principles of classic maneuvers to new heights. The resulting show is a waterfall of crazy combinations, paired up with innocent-seeming nonchalance that's nearly reminscent of a Powell era Ray Barbee's. Justis likes his thing proper and thus, he gets around quite a bit, filming parts for the local videos the people he meets here and there make; now, today's was filmed in Texas by Colton Trecker. Make sure not to click away because of the triple kickflip and actually, be certain to stick until the very, very end...
