Louis Vuitton and famed graffitti artist, Stephen Sprouse teamed up to make a new board. Most likely you won't get one. They are going for $8,250 bucks. Good news though! The proceeds will benefit needy children in New York City.
For the launch, the luxury goods company is also creating two limited edition pieces, which will only be available at the SoHo location: a Stephen Sprouse graffiti skateboard replete with a hard case monogram skateboard trunk, and a Stephen Sprouse "Roses" T-shirt. The company hopes to sell three graffiti skateboards with trunks for $8,250 each, and 70 T-shirts for $250 each.

Los Angeles, CA — We could sit here all day and tell you how awesome Braydon Szafranski's first Emerica pro shoe is--how it's something new and different, something truly special, and designed by Braydon for 100% pure skateboarding destruction right out of the box. We could go on for a long time, but we thought it would be best to have Braydon tell you about it himself.
