Tony Hawk’s New Lakai Proto

by The Editors on September 27, 2018

One of these shoes is Tony Hawk’s latest designed Proto the other is an old skate shoe from the end of the 80s.

Tony Hawk’s signature shoe, the Lakai Proto, is available now in Lakai retailers around the world. The Proto is inspired by Tony’s creative impact on skateboarding. It is designed and developed to provide support and comfort for everyday skateboarding. This limited Powell colorway is a nod to Tony’s most iconic footage during the Bones Brigade era.

We’re just having a rough time figuring out which is which. Maybe Michael Jordan could help?

C.R. Stecyk III + Nixon = Urban Maneuvers

by The Editors on September 25, 2018

Nixon has talked Craig Stecyk into creating a collection and not surprisingly, it is one of our favorites in a long while. Here’s how they pitch it:

C.R. Stecyk III exists in the shadows, and even when he does slide into the sunlight, it rarely adds clarity. A pioneer of the Dogtown skate ethos, Stecyk has helped shape modern skateboarding in more ways than imaginable: through videos, writing, art installations, and co-founded Juxtapoz Art magazine, among others. A widely-acknowledged street art progenitor, Stecyk’s contributions to the counterculture are so engrained in society that the Smithsonian permanently houses some of his work. 

The capsule includes a watch, a camera bag, and some other cool stuff. Sadly, there are only 100 watches and bags world wide (it’s limited). So if you want one you better hurry to an exclusive Nixon retailer. For the details, click the link.

A Mind Expander Split of Jones

by The Editors on September 25, 2018

We’re beginning to dream about winter and when we do we’re not thinking crowded resorts loaded with suburban brats acting rad. We’re thinking quiet forests, open glades, and rolling powder. And the board that gets us to it and through it during these flights is the Jones Mind Expander Split. It goes a little like this:

The new Mind Expander Splitboard was built for the creative rider who weaves nimble and playful lines as they slash through the backcountry. Designed by surf shaper Chris Christenson and Jeremy Jones, the Mind Expander Split features a Christenson Surf Rocker profile and a blunted nose for epic float in pow plus a full size tail for legit freestyle performance. The unique shape is matched with a short sidecut for snappy turn potential in tight trees and inner and outer edge Traction Tech for enhanced edge grip on icy skintracks or firm descents. For unmatched torsionally board connection in ride mode, the Mind Expander Split also features our Boltless Bridge and Karakoram Ultra Clips.

Really, what more do you need?  Click the link for all the details.

Hey Kids, Puffy Shoes Are Back

by The Editors on September 19, 2018

You know it’s hitting critical mass when Osiris and Under Armour are fighting about who designed the original ugly puffer D3 (was it Brian Reid or Dave Mayhew), because, you know, Under Armor’s new A$AP Rocky sneaker is a direct design knock off. Meanwhile Vans is dipping their toes into the puffy pool with their new Varix WC. Guess those of us who like the sleek, classic stylings of the Vans Old Skool are going to just have to hang in for a minutes until they come back around. Fashion!

Gerry Lopez Backs TropicSport Sunscreen

by The Editors on September 5, 2018

Lately, we’ve been on the perpetual hunt for a sunscreen that works, is safe, and doesn’t wreck the environment. We’ve been told the best protection is Titanium dioxide and Zinc oxide. Well, turns out Gerry Lopez’s new sponsor TropicSport offers up just that combination.

“I’m honored to be a TropicSport brand ambassador. The company and I are perfectly aligned in our commitment to protecting and preserving our oceans’ reefs and ecosystems. Their sunscreen works very well. I’ve used it surfing, in the water under intense sun for eight hours, one application and no sunburn. TropicSport does the job!” said Lopez.

Guess we’ll have to give it a try. Follow the jump for all the official details, and if you haven’t been to a dermatologist in a while make an appointment TODAY.
