Seeing as I’ve returned to my native (and rainy) Manchester, I thought I’d best try and invest in some more appropriate footwear…..when I spotted these beauties at Crepe City for a bargain price…it was too good a deal to refuse.
It took me a while but I eventually managed to hunt down a DS pair of the Hanon Centaur in my size and for a reasonable price at 6Acre. You have to admire Hanon‘s collaborative work of late….they just can’t seem to do wrong at the moment…..great use of materials, classic models and sold colourways continue to be delivered by the guy up in Aberdeen.
New single from the Manchester base rapper ‘Chalk….good to see some home grown talent doing well.
Japanese artist Haroshi is truly inspiring. Using his love for skateborading as his inspiration, medium and subject matter he truly encapsulates the attitude of the ‘sport’. I especially love the Spitfire wheel.
As the end-of-summer submissions signify the transition into autumn, HUF releases a video of their skateboarding squadron wrecking havoc on the Big Apple. The clip finds notables such as Brad Cromer, Matt Gottwig and Josh Matthews shredding some lesser-known spots around the city, also sporting current pieces from the brand’s Fall 2013 collection. While the video was likely filmed before the notorious introduction of a certain power duo, appearances from locals such as Bronze56k’s Billy McFeely, Richie Rizzo and longtime HUF representative Aaron Herrington certainly treat audiences to their fair share of eye candy. Enjoy the clip above.

Since working in retail the non runners in my crate have been sadly neglected, but on the rare occasion I don’t have to stay stood up for 9 hours, I like to break out something like the classic Superstar 80s. This example is the ‘Luker’ ObyO (Originals by Originals) collaboration with Neigbourhood….it’s a simple colourway, with premium materials….exactly what a superstar should be.
This brings back some happy memories of skating in the late eighties/early nineties. The tricks were so basic when you look back at stuff like this….good times though.
Thanks to Dave from Daves Wearhouse for pointing this out.
