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. Countless smaller skater owned brands have tried over the years, with a…

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…

We’ve been a huge fan of Lucas’ skating and pro models since our first review of the Lucas Pro back in 2012. Our most recent review (if 2016 counts as recent), and one of our favorite shoes ever skated, was his updated Lucas Premiere ADV shoe, for which we held a Weartested session in Shanghai,…

Nike SB Nyjah 2

There’s no doubt that Nyjah is a game changer in the skate scene, and as a polarizing character with love and hate on both sides of the spectrum, one thing’s for sure: Nyjah fucking sends it. He’s been destroying since the early days on Element, and he’s evolved into one of the best skaters in…

NB# Tiago 1010

It’s been more than two years since we’ve written and tested Tiago’s first pro model shoe from DC. Since then, Tiago’s continued his rampage, dropping video parts, constantly impressing everyone with IG video clips and leaving DC to enter the heavy roster on New Balance Numeric. Not to mention, Tiago’s been a consistent footy machine…

Jon Dickson reminds me of a silent beast, motivated by danger and humbled by gnarly bails over the course of his skate career. He skates with incredible speed, charging at a spot with the intention to stomp the bolts of his board when he lands. The style, grace and attitude that follow are undeniably natural;…

Vans Rowan Pro

Vans Rowan Pro

First time I was introduced to Rowan was through his old Shep Dawgs crew videos, where he blew onto the skate scene with a ponytail, funky last name, and an undeniable loose-but-in-control style of skating. Now only that, the whole crew was 100% skate rats and backed by Riley Hawk, Taylor Kirby and AJ Zavala;…

Nike SB Shane

All we can say is, we can’t believe it took this long for Shane’s official pro model to finally come out. But with that statement, we’re also highlighting the fact that Shane is undoubtedly one of the best professional skateboarders out today, who has put in incredible work ethic into his skate career and is…

At only 24 years old, Jamie Foy is built like a trojan warrior, ready to destroy any handrail in his path. Originally from Florida, he burst onto the scene a few years ago dropping four video parts and captivating everyone’s attention with gnarly handrail tricks done with effortless style. No one knew who he was…

“In 1992, Hufnagel moved to San Francisco to pursue his passion of skateboarding. He turned professional soon after, providing him a rare and rewarding opportunity to travel the world by means of his skateboard and the industry that supported him. Brought up by the very ‘do-it-yourself’ approach that came along with skateboarding, Hufnagel saw an…

HUF Dylan Slip On

Dylan’s mark on skateboarding culture is not only attributed to the progressive parts he’s put out for Osiris, Transworld, Gravis, Alien Workshop and Supreme, but also to the influence of style on and off the board among skaters across the globe. Watching the Dylan Gravis Part, it’s evident that his skate mentality is a balanced…

Lakai Flaco 2

Stevie Perez really came onto the scene in a time when standout parts from full videos truly excited the skaters around the world. In 2012, the highly anticipated Pretty Sweet video from Girl and Chocolate dropped, and Stevie’s part opened up right after Chocolate’s OG’s Kenny Anderson, Gino Iannucci, Daniel Castillo, Christ Roberts and Justin…
