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.

The New Balance Numeric team along with Russell Houghton have just released a new three minute cinematography master piece called Sunland via The Berrics ! Once again it is eye catching and quite refreshing compared to your normal bog standard skate edit!

Like many of their previous New Balance Numeric videos Houghton uses his drone directing skills to give us an all rounded and different look at many of the well seen before spots that we are all familiar with. Filmed within a Californian schoolyard, the team all hit up the different spots and obstacles they have to skate one after each other.  The Sunland edit features Arto Saari, PJ Ladd, Jack Curtin, Levi Brown, Jordan Trahan, Jordan Talir, Tom Karangelov, Tyler Surrey, Marquise Henry and the UK’s own Tom Knox.

Emerica Skate Shoes

Sunday, November 9th, 2014

Emerica doesn’t get the recognition it deserves. Started in 1996 this company has done so much for skateboarding and I feel like other companies are pushing real skate brands out of skateboarding which is bullshit. Emerica have been on point with every aspect of the company. Producing some of skateboarding’s finest video’s, designing the best skate shoes and sponsoring some of the raddest skaters out there. Andrew Reynolds has had a huge influence on the company and it wasn’t for him, I doubt it would be the brand it is today. Watch his section from Baker 3 below and I’ll be surprised if your not out skating later today….

 

 

Reynolds also has a section in Emerica’s ‘This is skateboarding’ which was released in 2003.  It also has parts from Heath Kirtchard, Kevin Long, Bryan Herman, Ed Templeton, Austin Stephens, Aaron Suski and many more. Probably my favorite video ever made. Here’s the full length video for you guys to get even more hyped…

 

 

The latest video they released was ‘Made’ which is once again and unbelievable watch! Having sections from new additions to the team such as Jerry Hsu, this hands down needs to be part of your DVD collection. It’s safe to say Emerica are on it. Also when it comes down to producing some of skateboarding’s finest skate shoes and clothing they have never failed to impress. I remember my first proper skate shoe after skating in trainers for many years and it was a pair of Emerica Heretic’s and they were dope. Bit chunky but that was the style back then, the difference between how big shoes were to how slim they are now is madness. Here’s some recent Westgate’s  they have brought out.

 

 

On top of their product they also hold a skate event every year called ‘Wild in the streets’ which has been a huge success. It has been hosted in different cities all over the world from London UK to Detroit USA. It’s pretty much letting all the skaters going wild in streets as one big crowd and skating various spots around the city. It’s amazing to see how many people attend the event. One big family getting together. Keep your eyes peeled for it next year as it will be as always be an event to remember…

 

 

It’s been a pleasure to see Emerica grow as a company. I hope it only gets even better as the years go on. The product is mint, the team will always be amazing as it has been for years. There is already a rumor of a new video ‘Made 2’ which is coming out in the near future. Just have a little think the next time your in a sports shop about to purchase some shoes because there could be a pair of dope Emerica’s waiting for you in your local skate shop. We at The Black Sheep are very proud to stock Emerica so come and have a look. I can guarantee you’ll be stoked on it….


Etnies x Plan B

Tuesday, November 4th, 2014

 

Etnies and Plan B have had ties since the early 90s. They have once again joined forces to release a series of Etnies X Plan B shoes for you guys to get your hands on. The first of 3 they have decided to go with are the Scout’s. If you’ve not already seen or more importantly held them they are an extremely lightweight durable shoe. Probably not the best for skating but for chilling, running and day to day life they are perfect. 

 

 

The second out the 3 is the Marana. Now this is a shoe worth skating in. It’s exactly the same as previous Marana’s except they have replaced the Etnies logo on the side of the shoe with a Plan B logo. I would say it works really well. Sometimes when shoes do a collaboration with another company whether it being a board company or not, it always seems to be quite obvious and in your face. This is quite subtle and works really well. Etnies have also kept the colours quite simple and the material it’s made from will be perfect for a winter skate shoe.

 

Finally saving the best till last we’ve got the Marana E-lite. This is pretty much just an upgraded version of the Marana costing a little bit more. If your into your tech items then these will be perfect otherwise I would just recommend the standard Marana’s. Either way they’re both amazing skate shoes. The difference between the 2 is the E-lite has an increase in technology, durability and design.

 

All 3 shoes seem to be a favorite of Ryan Sheckler’s so I’m guessing this is the reason why they have decided to use these shoes in the collab. Also seems right as Sheckler is pro for both companies. Plan B are also dropping a new video called ‘True’ so this release fits in with the release of the the video. Keep your eyes peeled as it’s supposed to one to remember featuring sections from Plan B’s finest Danny Way, Ryan Sheckler, Pat Duffy, PJ Ladd, Felipe Gustavo and many more…. Have look below at the trailer to get you hyped on this mint collab and also an epic video to come….

 

 

 

 


GOLF WANG VANS THIS SATURDAY!

Wednesday, July 16th, 2014

If you didn’t catch the release that Vans Syndicate did with Golf Wang last year you’re in luck as we at The Black Sheep Store will be releasing the new colour ways this SATURDAY for you to PURCHASE. Last years model were quite simple colours from red, blue and black with a gum sole but the new ones are a lot brighter with a pink sole! There will be 3 different colours for you to choose from all with the same sole! Vans released images of the shoe earlier this week and they look banging….

 

 

We will be stocking all 3  Golf Wang shoes although you will have to wait till Monday to get the wheat ones but you will be informed further on their arrival. Also there will be some rules to obey as it will be one pair per customer to make things fair for everyone! The shop will be opening at 10:30 as normal but I would get down as soon as possible as we will be expecting queues! If you have never gone camping in the city centre this may be the time to do so although we do not encourage the idea.  Each pair will cost you £84.95 and sizes start from UK 5.5 up to UK 12. We have a few in each size so hopefully no one will go home empty handed!
