After a recent team-up with adidas, FTC now linked up with ACE for a special pair of orange/white trucks. The trucks feature “33″ engraved on the right side and “FTC” on the left (above). Style points on skateboards are more important than kickflips anyways, right?

Pants down, the Diamond Supply Co. Scout Belts are the top scout belt drop this year. One belt features a high-end/Christmas-y color-scheme (above) while the other is red/black with a painted-in logo on the buckle -stocking stuffer or full-fledged gift, these are a win-win. The Diamond Supply Co. Scout Belts are now available at In4mation. Call up for a phone order if need be.

Limited to 1,000 units and said to be the last Frogman model ever produced by Casio, the LRG x G-Shock Frogman is the latest watch craze.
