Supreme “SWOOSH” (Video)

Just ahead of their upcoming collaboration with Nike SB, Supreme has released a quick edit featuring the team out in Paris.

With Familia celebrating it’s 10th Anniversary a few weeks back, the Uptown skate shop proved they were celebrating big, announcing a collaboration with Nike SB. The Dunk High ” Blow Ox” was born, skaters and sneaker heads rejoiced, but details surrounding the release are STILL nil to none. This Saturday, July 4th is the day, if you’re dying to grab a pair (like me) stop by the shop and see what’s up, we’ll throw up the necessary info once acquired.

Hockey Skateboards Debut

Hockey Skateboards recently released their debut skate video for everyone’s viewing pleasure. This video feels like the videos from the golden age 90s era, no background music, no frills and more than a few hard slams. A solid clip filled with tons of technical tricks, this video left me eager to see more from the emerging skate brand. Check out the visual above and be on the look out for more from Hockey.

Supreme – the red devil. (Video)

The good guys over at Supreme recently dropped a new skate video courtesy of William Strobeck. If you remember Cherry and JOYRIDE then you’ve definitely seen all of the above skaters as well as Strobeck’s work first hand. Supreme’s strong skate team continues to keep the ball rolling for a brand that some would say has reached it’s peak. One of the original purveyors of clean & simple street wear, Supreme looks to stay at the forefront of the scene. Check out the video above
