Behind the Scenes + Made to Flex: Jacob Pinto
Timberland | Made to Flex | Jacob Pinto
If you’ve never seen Martial Arts Tricking before, prepare to be blown away. At just 20 years old, LA native Jacob Pinto could probably kick your ass. A combination of basic karate, choreography, and gymnastics make tricking an extremely unique sport. “It’s a hobby I created into a career,” Jacob tells Timberland. “I got into tricking through martial arts when I was just 6 years old.”
Inspired by his co-competitors and mentors, Jacob’s dedication to training has really paid off. His ability to freestyle is limitless, and it’s important his gear is the same, which is why we asked Jacob to test out our SensorFlex™ comfort system in a pair of Killington Oxfords. Designed with premium leather and knit details, these oxfords don’t weigh Jacob down when he’s flipping through the air. It’s safe to say nobody will be messing with this guy.
