Each season superFishal introduces a new series of three collaborative board graphics which are screenprinted in small limited editions. The concept is to take two artists with completely different styles and have them converge to make a really unique board graphic. This Fall/Winter season sees Jeremy Fish collide with skater/artist Andy Howell to form ‘The Spirit’ deck, which features a couple of Jeremy’s classic figures set in a back drop of Howell’s intricate brush strokes. In his collaboration with Mike Giant entitled ‘The Serpent’ we see Jeremy’s style mashed into Mike’s tattoo based creations. And Jeremy’s conspiring with Scrawl Collective’s WIll Barras leads to a board called ‘The Stack’ which features the motorcycle version of Noah’s Ark.

Vans presents the new Authentic Suede Pack. The pack consists of three Authentics, each coming with a suede upper in grey, dark red and in beige. The pack is classic and very solid and now available at Dave’s Quality Meat.

eS got together with Krooked this season to work on the Square One sneaker, the same model we have already seen these past weeks in the eS x Livestock x The Hundreds collaboration.

The eS x Krooked Square one comes in black suede with contrast stitching and features both brand logos on the tongue tag. On the back it features a small Mark Gonzales graphic embroidery. It is now available at Slam City Skates.

A wildly popular addition to the Emerica team, Jerry Hsu brings together enjoi Skateboards and Emerica for a collaboration on his Hsu pro model. It features enjoi Panda’s printed on the collar, along its mid-top and enjoi Panda all-over-print insoles.

Look out for the Emerica x Jerry Hsu x enjoi Skateboards sneaker release in the near future.

Designed to modern specifications, Peter Huynh’s concept of truckin’ does not include a mullet but results a signature UXA-595X - 5 panel snap back trucker cap. Classic silhouette and patterned to modern fit, the 595X features the first punk’d–out collage series of vintage NY skate photos of Jeff Pang, Peter Bici, Jeremy Henderson, Loki, Kev Kestler, Gio Esteves, Chris Keeffe and rippers considered as the Brooklyn Banks Crew in the 80-90’s.

The UXA NY Skateboarding Collage Cap will be released at skate stores around the glove on 8th of November.

DC is proud to announce that it has teamed with New York artist SSUR for its third collaboration in the DC Artists Projects™ Series. The SSUR III Artist Projects™ shoe will launch November 1, 2008.

“An Eye for an Eye Leaves the Whole World Blind”—that’s the ominous warning running throughout SSUR’s third project with DC. When designing the first half of the project, SSUR III, the artist featured a military thematic as a cautionary tale against war. Earthy and dark greens, blacks and browns set off orange color hits. As with all the other Artist Projects™ he’s done with DC so far, “PAY ME” is stamped across the lace holders.

An all in all solid Fall/Winter sneaker in nice colors is coming from the third DC Artist Project x SSUR collaboration. After the recent Aaron Rose collaboration, this makes yet another strong shoe. Look out for the release this weekend at select retailers.

Today we give you a first look at the Nike SB November 2008 releases. The line-up includes the McFly Zoom Tre A.D., P-Rod 2, Dunk Mid, Blazer Lo and Zoom Harbor. A good part of the sneakers come in grey colors, a good choice for the Fall/Winter season. In general all sneakers in this drop are very solid and much less playful than what we are used to see from Nike SB. All sneakers are now available at CCS.

In collaboration with Boosted, Vans Outerwear is proud to introduce the Vans x Boosted Program. Designed for fast and easy communication on the mountain, the program is available in the Grunt Insulated LTD Jacket and the Down Supreme LTD Jacket. The jackets are embedded with Boosted branded Bluetooth technology that seamlessly links your Bluetooth enabled mobile phone and favorite MP3 device. The stereo headset allows for convenient use on your mobile phone while listening to your favorite tracks, without interrupting your ride.

Nixon, a brand behind many an innovative watch, is branching out from time pieces to include headphones. Three designs appear set for release. Each is minimal, given the respective type of headphone. You’ve got robust home audio pieces, all the way down to ear buds. The use of stitched leathers for the padding puts the Nixon output a little ahead of the norm in their chosen price range ($40 to $200).

2008’s “IT” sneaker for rappers is crossed with the most classic of hip-hop footwear, the 6-inch timberland boot. It’s a pretty nice make up, correct to the brown leather ankle pad. What’s more, the low profile nature of the Supra Skytop isn’t overwhelmed by it. Where other skate companies, like Globe, failed with their Timbo homage, Supra almost nails it. After the metallics and animal prints, taking it back to basics restores some of the original interest in the silhouette. These drop November 28, 2008.
