****Important tip for the guys**** When you gotta pee, tuck your Panasaya into your pockets, unless you want a yellow Panasaya.
The Panasaya Belt is an evolution of the homemade shoelace belt made popular by skateboarders. Who knows when or who actually started wearing a shoelace as a belt. It was very possibly Rodney Mullen since he invented everything else having to do with skateboarding (Joking.... kind of).
A regular shoelace belt is cool and all, but no one can see it, and that's lame. Plus, a lot of shoelaces stretch and you have to retie often.
We use special "stretch resistant" laces on the tie side of a Panasaya belt, while the side that hangs down and shows everybody how cool you are is designed for fashion with a herring stitch.
Shoelace Belts may have evolved from the skating culture, they aren't just for skaters anymore.
We got rock stars, hip hop thugs, cowboys, soccer moms, and even douche bags wearing Panasayas.
We try not to sell to douche bags, but they somehow get them every now and then :-(
Who knows? If you've got the attitude you can wear a Panasaya Belt, they look fly enough. You might be a master poker player working on his tactics at www.poker.de or professor teaching law at school, the Panasaya belt will make the cleverest (or squarest) pair of pants look a whole lot better. They also work much better than using a genuine lace.
A Panasaya is a pretty simple device, but people still have trouble figuring out how to use it.
Step 1: Put it through your beltloops
Step 2: Pull your pants up
Step 3: Tie the black lace
That's it! You're done, go have fun without having to worry about your pants falling off!
