Element X Black Sheep Store 10 Years – Sharkey Edit


Huge thanks to Element Skateboards Europe for hooking up our first 10 Year collaboration/celebration release of 2018!


Using the classic Element Seal graphics with a Black Sheep 10 Year twist. This is a strictly one time limited release with both size 8″ and 8.25″ available in small numbers. See link below to own some Manchester Skateboarding history but for now wrap your eyeballs around the all new edit from Black Sheep Family member and Element Skateboards team rider Jordan Sharkey.




This is just a taste of what’s to come from team member Sharkey…. Yes it’s going to be a big Year all round for both Sharkey and ourselves here at the Black Sheep Store Manchester.


Filmed by the hands of Black Sheep Family member Isaac Wilkinson with additional editing from Seb Batty. Huge thanks as ever to these guys along with Sam Binga x Trigga – MCR (Girls Music) for the banging anthem!


*Little news flash! (or is it fashionable fake news) but rumour has it Sharkey has another six minutes of nonchalant skateboarding stylised clips to release onto the masses soon enough… More on that one soon though. For now get your viewing pleasure below for the Sharkey, Element x Black Sheep 10 Year Anniversary edit.

As expected with this caliber of collaboration we’re expecting high demand so please be prepared come the above times.







As you’ll well know the Vans x Thrasher relation runs deep with many years producing articles together of some mental road trips and serious coverage from the ever on point Vans Skate Team so it’s rad to see the epic John Cardiel ‘Ring Of Fire’ Thrasher Magazine cover now immortalized on the limited release Vans Long Sleeved Tee.

The Vans x Pass~Port Collaboration

Friday, August 12th, 2016



Vans and Pass~Port Skateboards have joined forces to bring you one hell of a collaboration. I mean what would life be like if we didn’t have brands joining forces bringing you the best of both worlds? Well I’ll tell you…. It would be boring, almost similar to watching the unstoppable rain falling from our grey Manchester sky, shitters! Anyway to lighten the mood Vans x Pass~Port have brought two banging pairs of shoes that’ll be available to purchase on Saturday (13/08/16) and as always with certain collabs like this they are very limited and exclusive and it’s a first come first served policy. So get the paper at the ready as you are going to love these. Here’s a closer look at them below…






Now that’s a shoe, you’d be crazy not to appreciate these bad boys. The shoe is a Vans Old Skool and this specific shoe has seen on the feet of skaters for a massive number of years and there are possibly one of the most successful skate shoes going. On the other hand Pass~Port is one of skateboarding’s underground companies who are definitely not shy when it comes to releasing powerful edits, you might have seen some of their previous edits before and if you haven’y you can get started right now as in connection with the shoe release we have Vans and Pass~Port – Callum Paul and Nik Stipanovic video. Filmed on the Streets of Australia’s Melbourne and Sydney you have 7 minutes of stylish, creative skating.


Grab your pair before stock sells out….



Official – Cardiel ‘Park Ragers’

Friday, March 11th, 2016





This past spring Official was honored to participate in one of John Cardiel’s long time aspirations of riding bikes from our homes in Sacramento, CA to Yosemite National Forest (around 180 miles in 3 days). The bike tour was inspired by John’s childhood trips to Yosemite with his father and his ever inspirational need to challenge and push himself. Official Park Ragers is a twist on the original Yosemite Rangers, birthed completely by John and as a way to commemorate the epic three days of riding and camping with our bros and also to poke a little fun at the time honored rangers. This collection celebrates everything that is classic and awesome about John Cardiel and we couldn’t be prouder to have gone on a small piece of the journey with him. Take a closer look below at the collection…

At the Black Sheep Store we more than Enjoi skateboarding, even more so when big brands decide to join forces and do an extra special collaboration. You’ve probably already realized from the image above who is our next partner in crime is, if not it’s Enjoi Skateboards. HYPED! A worldwide skateboard brand that has been nothing but the best since it came onto the scene in 2000. So what can be expected? A bloody dope deck featured above which will come in sizes consisting of 8” and 8.25”. A combined effort on the design, you’d be mad to miss out on this super limited drop. On sale in store from Saturday the 23rd (tomorrow), then if there’s any left, which might be doubtful, the rest will go online on Sunday for the online buyers. Costing you just £39.95 including free grip, they’re cheap as chips. Do you really want to be a fool and miss out on a chance to take one of these bad boys home?! Watch Enjoi’s ‘Bag Of Suck’ below to begin the hype…
