Kozm: Troy Eckart’s Yoga Clothes For Men

by The Editors on November 29, 2016

derek_troy

What has Troy Eckart been up to since peacing out from Volcom after the big sale? It appears that he’s been doing what a lot of people with the time to do what they want do — he’s been flexing around on padded mats striking poses. So much time, in fact, that he decided he needed some clothes to wear “in his practice.” That is apparently why he and Derek Sabori founded a new yoga clothing company for men called Kozm, according to a story on Observer.com.

“When I decided to shop around, on a search for products that might be better suited for my practice, I realized I didn’t personally connect with much; from aesthetic to business ethics. I kept looking and came up short. That’s what really sparked the idea to do something on my own,” he [Eckart] told the Observer.

Seems like reason enough, right? Can’t keep Eckart and Sabori out of the garment game for long.

Adidas Skateboarding has pulled together Snoop Dogg and Mark Gonzales together for a new limited edition collection called LA Stories. The collection includes “a limited edition sneaker, hoodie, long-sleeve shirt and t-shirt accented with nostalgic Southern California iconography.”

The collection is inspired by the the duo’s deep connection to Los Angeles style beginning with a customized Matchcourt Mid. Constructed with a full-grain, buttery cream leather upper, the shoe features the iconic three stripes in a blue hue, custom sockliner, gold eyelets and is detailed with signature artwork by Gonz on the outsole. In the 90s, plaid flannels were wardrobe staples for Snoop and Gonz and the digitized plaid tongue and heel overlay designed straight from Gonz’s iPad was its inspiration. Gonz’ custom artwork also appears on the limited edition hoodie, long sleeve shirt and t-shirt featuring lowriders and graffiti lettering.

The shoes retail for $85 and the clothing pieces start at $30 and will be available at Adidas.com and a select specialty skate retailers. In other words, you can get these at the outlet mall.

NikeSB App Rolls Into Retirement

by The Editors on September 28, 2016

nikesb_appscrnIn an “service update” email sent today (September 28, 2016) to users of the NikeSB skateboarding app the company says they will be retiring the iOS social sharing skateboarding app on November 1, 2016 to “make way for their newest services.” They offered the following advice for users who would still like to get up with NikeSB.

In place of using the SB App to upload your clips, now you can get your clips spotted on Instagram.
1. Upload your videos to Instagram
2. Tag @nikesb and use the hashtag #CheckMeSB
3. Have a chance to be featured on our Nike SB channelsIn addition, we will continue to serve you with first access to SB product, videos and events through the Nike+ App.

We haven’t used the app in a while, but remember it being pretty solid when it launched in 2013. Guess we’ll have to wait and see if  they’ve got something better coming up. Seems it’s still open season in the hunt for a “Strava for skateboarding” app. Better get on it.

Capita Snowboards and adidas Snowboarding share a rider. His name is Kazu Kokubo. So why not share some branded product as well? No reason, really. So here it is — a Adi-Trek Capita shoe and Coaches Jacket — inspired by Kazu’s board graphics which were created by world renowned tattoo artist Gangi of Three Tides Tattoo.

The Adi-Trek Capita shoe is a winterized skate shoe that features a cozy fleece lining and a grippy vulcanized outsole for precise board feel. The shoe’s gusseted tongue is water resistant to withstand harsh weather conditions and the EVA sockliner with customized warrior graphic provides additional cushioning and support. The Capita Coaches Jacket is a lightweight, water-resistant jacket featuring monochromatic detailing complete with Kazu’s signature bird logo on the jacket’s back.

This smashing combo goes on sale October 1 at specialty retailers in the US and on the adidas snowboarding website: $90 for the shoes, $95 for the jacket. Go Capita!
