Included in the mix is the Mountain Edition Hi LX in sticky green leather [pictured above], black leather, black herringbone, and navy herringbone. We also have the OG Caballero LX, which is constructed from a mix of leather and suede–choose from red, black, or gray. And if you want to drop it low, grab the Era LX in navy herringbone.

The new Supra "Snake Teal" Vaider is shipping to stores. Coming in an exciting snake skin/tiffany turquoise colorway, it reminds us of a popular release a few years back.Look out for it to drop somewhere close to you soon.
Active Mailorder out of California has gotten together with Vans to collaborate on the Half Cab model. The outcome is definitely impressive, as they have added a lot of details to the classic. Rather than being noticed for a crazy choice of color, Active kept it all black, added embroideries, embossed graphics, and took some minor inspiration on the lacing from hiking boots.

The elephant-print Nike SB P-Rod II Hi was one of the hottest releases this summer, now we have a preview of a never-before-seen Cappuccino colorway. Right now it’s available at A-Front in Texas and Maze Skate Shop in Sao Paulo, Brazil. Hopefully it will hit more shops Stateside soon. Thanks to Nice Kicks for the heads up.
Devo was the sh*t. They were weird in every sense of the word and seemed to coincide perfectly with skate aesthetic of the 80's. Since so many skaters I know love Devo, I've always wondered when a company was going to man-up and tackle a proper Devo collabo. Well it seems that Globe has taken on the responsibility with a full limited line of Devo branded goods. "The Devo Airport Survival Collection" features shoes, denim, boardshorts, T-shirts, bags, complete skateboard and something called a fight or flight suit. Wonder if that's a Devo jumpsuit? If so, I want one. What about some Devo whips? C'mon Globe marketing guys, you're blowin' it. Just kidding.

Krew rider, Greg Myers stopped by the companies TF recently and came up on this footage where he skates to Dinosaur Jr.'s "The Wagon." And seriously, when is Greg Myers gonna be taken off the Zero flow program and be granted official am status? Enough's enough Jamie Let this boy live.
Not to mention his new Supra shoe deal, pro skater/rapper Terry Kennedy aka TK recently got on international radar after some lengthy appearances on MTV’s Runs House. Now with hot sister #2 Angela Simmons locked in his arms and Fly Society hoping to reach platinum skies, TK took a brief intermission exclusively for Tha Clinic so you can get some personal insight on his busy life. Watch ‘em as he hits the gym like Fitty and then takes the stage like…well, you decide.
