Do you think skaters will shy away from the Debut because they think, "Ewww!  That font stinks."?

no, but as someone that works with type for a living, it cheapens the look of the boot.

When I zoom in on the lettering [on the image on the Jackson website], I can see the outlines of impressions.  My guess is that a stamping operation is involved in the labelling, and any changes would involve retooling.  Unless they lose sales because of the aesthetics, I don't think they'll want to incur the costs.

From what it looked like on the website it’s embroidered. All the same it’s a minor thing in the grand scheme of things but bothers me because I look at type all day for a living and would never send a clients work out with such poor kerning.

Anyways, back to the discussion of the boot itself.
