Vans Skate Classics

A lot of times, brands always try to release a completely new silhouette in hopes of establishing the model as a new classic iconic silhouette, but fall short in delivering a product with the brand’s DNA that core skaters fell in love with from the beginning.

Lopez Pro Mid – Guest Review

Lopez Pro Mid – Guest Review

Louie Lopez came into the scene as a young buck sponsored by Flip skateboards at the age of 12. At the time, he had super long hair and was jumping down huge stair sets. For a long time, whenever I thought of Louie Lopez that was the “Louie” I thought of – small, long hair,…

Last Resort AB VM001 Hi

Last Resort AB VM001 Hi

It’s a bold move to start a brand new skate shoe company in this current marketplace. Finding the right designers, material sourcing, distribution and figuring out the “marketing” needed to stick out among the corporate giants almost seems a challenge not worth tackling.

Lakai Carroll

It’s hard to say if we’re just getting older, or if the early 2000’s were really the “golden years” of skateboarding. Although not too different from how it is now, but it felt like during that time in middle school, EVERYONE SKATED. All the kids were wearing Lakai, Adio, Osiris, Element and Spitfire sweaters, and…
