ART GODOY PROTOCOL SHOE
Osiris Shoes and H-Street Skateboard have joined forces with over a half a century of combined innovation and experience to bring you the ultimate skate shoe.
This collaborative effort takes the iconic Osiris Protocol and wraps it in our formulated “secret sauce” premium suede for maximum performance and unmatched durability.
Understanding the demands of today skaters we developed the “CTRL Impact System” which features our innovative insole and lasting technology to maximize the overall comfort, fit, support and impact resistance you come to expect with performance footwear.
This collection of skate shoes is essentially based on the custom made shoes Tony Mag’s been rocking for years, with a variety of quality and durability upgrades, including the very stylish waxed laces, which do last longer than regular laces and insoles, which have some “grip” to them and the extra set of custom CTRL Impact insole, which is printed with Art Godoy’s legendary artwork.
The Samurai was one Art’s main graphics from the 80’s, drawn by himself and his twin brother Steve and the Killer Barracuda is a newer graphic that was also drawn by the Godoy’s. Both are current models in the H-Street line up.
Art Godoy was part of the original H-Street crew and by extension, his twin brother Steve, both legendary skateboarders in the 80’s. They were both pioneers in tattoo art and punk rock music and took their art and attitude to some of the best H-Street graphics of all time. Between the two of them, they created an art style for skateboard graphics that was totally unique and have never been duplicated most of the really famous H-Street riders were fortunate enough to have the Godoy’s artwork as their graphics.
After the skate career, Art&Steve started tattooing full time. Art and his brother have owned shops in Encinitas & Hollywood. Art opened Funhouse Tattooing in 1998 and currently lives in Vancouver, Canada.
The Godoys hold several international patents on tattoo machine technology. Authors of Tattoo Machines & their Secrets - an industry text book published in 6 languages. Art and Steve tour world wide doing seminars on tattoo machines and continue to improve that industry's standards.
Art & Steve have both played punk rock together since the 80’s and have played with Duane Peters, Radio Birdman and Deniz Tek. They have numerous iterations of their band at different times but the music, message and attitude have remained the same; straight and true punk rock.
H-Street was founded circa 1986, by professional skateboarder Tony Mag and bro Mike Ternasky. The two teamed up with pro skateboarder Dave Andrecht to form the first skateboard company that was run by skateboarders.
T-Mag’s basic idea was that skateboard companies should be run by skateboarders and not guys in suits that didn’t ride, and that skateboarding should be a source of free and individual expression. The fact most towns in America have an actual H-Street somewhere, made it into an every town idea. H-Street is inclusive, not exclusive.Osiris Shoes was formed in the early 90’s by a group of friends, including Tony Mag, who thought it was a good idea for skaters to design skate shoes. Osiris has been a leading and innovative brand with such notables as the first shoe company to release a full length video with “The Storm” in 2000 and design hits like the D3 and D3 2001, followed by leading the industry in prints on shoes with an artist known as OG Abel. In 2007, Brian Reid designed the NYC83, an 80’s throwback high top that reached new heights for Osiris. While design and innovation is always paramount at Osiris, quality skate shoes is always a priority for both Brian Reid and Tony Mag, who still design the shoes and still skate.
