Mike Carroll Return Of The Flare

Girl and Lakai pro Mike Carroll gets remixed to some classic Souls of Mischief. This re-edit is by Daniel Policelli and features some un-seen angles from Pretty Sweet, new footage and banging clips from tour. Watch the SOTY's Return of the Flare below and check out the new Girl and Lakai. 

Supra Skytop V

Supra, and Chad Muska's, notorious Skytop is back, this time, for its fifth incarnation. As can be seen in the clip below, the Muska chose to focus on a simplistic, yet stylish design to reflect his artwork. Despite its clean look, the Skytop V is backed up by solid technology, including: a three-piece TPU cage paired with multi-pieced elastic bands and an internal neoprene bootie to offer superb comfort and support while TUF coated sandwich mesh allows for ventilated protection at the vamp, and a deep heel cup within the footbed provides a padded and secure foundation atop the ultra cushioned full-length EVA midsole. 

We also thought that the release of this new shoe was the perfect opportunity for everyone to remind themselves of how much of an icon Muska was in his day, and also, just how gnarly he was. Take in his Day in the Life, and then go huck!

Etnies Introducing the Helix

We've recently had a whole host of new Etnies products, and the showpiece is definitely the Helix, an aesthetically pleasing, tech shoe, featuring: Exposed STI EVOLUTION® FOAM midsole; Geo-Hex tread pattern; 400 NBS rubber in the high wear areas on outsole; One piece PU flow-molded vamp continues underneath the suede toe cap for added durability; Breathable die cut EVA tongue and collar with outer mesh overlay.

Etnies have released a clip to coincide with the shoe's release, featuring Silvester Eduardo taking his mammoth pop for a stroll, Trevor McClung taking the fast and perilous route, and Barney Page being Barney Page - precise and smooth.

Nike SB 15 Years of Dunk

The turn of 2017 has signalled the 15th anniversary for one of Nike SB's most iconic shoes, the Dunk. From Gino Iannucci to Reese Forbes and Lewis Marnell, so many legends have repped this shoe so hard in a variety of videos, it is hard to ignore its prominence in skateboarding ciulture.

This presence can definitely be felt in the edit Nike SB have just released to showcase skaters repping the Dunk since 2002. Watch below for some powerful skating from the likes of Paul Rodriguez, Gino Iannucci, Reese Forbes, Grant Taylor,  and Wieger van Wageningen, before Lewis Marnell, one of the Dunk's most fervent representatives, fittingly brings the edit to a close.

Nike have also created a dedicated page providing some background on various Dunk's from their archive, footage of them, and ads from over the years, and is definitely worth a visit. There's going to be three new Dunks released to celebrate 15 years, and they should be getting released in the very near future.

Sage Elsesser One Star Pro CC

Converse recently put out a sick, jazzy edit of CONS ambassador, Sage Elsesser taking his gigantic pop for a stroll around some of New York's stalwart spots.

Yes Fam Our Mates Do The Moosic

This is the first proper clip that's come out from Yes Fam since the brand branched out and started building a board team, and it's sick.

The edit is laced with street antics, a Big Narstie comedy skit, music provided by mates of Morph, and solid skating, with Jak Pietryga opening the proceedings with his trademark combination of speed, tech, and all-round consistency. NOTE's very own Tyrone O'Hanrahan comes through with his own unique style, and proceeds to kill all manner of spots between London, Paris and Barcelona.

All around good vibes here, and definitely recommended viewing!
