30 Years of the Half Cab In 1992, skaters created the world’s greatest skate shoe with just scissors and duct tape. They cut down their shoes to make something that could push skateboarding the way they wanted to, and the Half Cab was born. Three decades later, skaters are still pushing forward. To celebrate 30 years of the iconic mid-top silhouette, the Half Cab 30th Jockey Hat features an old school Half Cab woven label at the front panel. This 6-panel jocket hat is made with 100% cotton.
