This week’s segment of Apparel of the Week features Jade in products from Oakley, KR3W, Lakai, RVCA and Expedition One. We’re keeping you updated with only the best new products in our warehouse, so turn off your TV and tune into this week’s AOTW.

AOTW: Oakley, RVCA, Expedition, KR3W & Lakai

AOTW Jade Oakley Sunglasses

First we have Jade sporting the Oakley Koston Frogskins LX Sunglasses. When it comes to sunglasses, Oakley is crowned king. They’ve been providing us with top of the line sunglasses for years. And these aren’t just any old Oakleys, these are Eric Koston’s signature model. If the Koston name isn’t enough of a selling point, than I don’t know what is.

Nothing is better than a solid woven. No amount of money, women or beers can beat the feeling of throwing on a fresh woven shirt. The RVCA Riverbed L/S Woven Shirt is your ticket to success. It’s thin, lightweight, comfortable and looks damn good.

AOTW Jade RVCA Woven

AOTW Jade Expedition One Tee

In general, people suck. Plain and simple. So while you’re out and about hating the world why not have some fun with it. The Expedition One Nice Day T-Shirt would make a great addition to your closet. Whether or not you like the shirt, “Have a Nice Day Asshole.”

The KR3W K Slims have been a crowd pleaser for years. When people ask me what jeans they should get, my answer is K Slims, easy as that. The new KR3W Slim Chino Pants not only bring the classic k slim fit and quality, they also give you this killer new Midnight colorway. Some say, “Good things never happen after midnight.” Not true with these!

AOTW Jade KR3W Pants

AOTW Jade Lakai Footwear

The new Lakai MJ Shoes have everything you want: comfort, durability, simplicity and style. Not only are these shoes amazing to skate, their new copper colorway looks great off the board as well. Marc Johnson is a legend, and with these you’ll finally know what it feels like to be in his shoes.

That wraps it up for this installment of Apparel of the Week. I hope you all enjoyed it! Be sure to pick up your favorite selections from Skate Warehouse and subscribe to the Go Skate Blog for more good stuff every week. Now get outside and GO SKATE!

Cosmic Skate Mandala by kidpasta

The illustrious kidpasta strikes again! Ryan “kidpasta” Varner is a longtime Skate Warehouse employee, in-house artist, creative wizard and all around great guy. For the past couple months, he’s been chipping away at an epic mural in the Customer Service office. It was just finished last week and we’re stoked to showcase it on the blog. This freakin’ painting is incredibly cool.

The “Cosmic Skate Mandala” by kidpasta features endless quarterpipes and hubbas in orbit around a central cloudy sun being shredded by silhouettes of almost of every skateboarder that works here. Cole, Zach, Johnny, Matt, Nate and everyone else you’ve come to know through Skate Warehouse reviews and road trip videos now have a place in kidpasta’s universe. Carving through space, backside flipping stairsets, grinding the hubba, you name it, it’s going down up there. Add in the comets coming at you, the formation of a bubble galaxy and the secret government UFO’s surveilling our every move and you’ve got a skate spot of epic proportions.

If you’ve ordered with us in the past, you may have received a little hand drawn thank you note from one of our Customer Service reps. If you’re lucky, you may have received one from the multi-talented kidpasta. If you have one, or if you get one in the future, keep that shit and hang it up! That’s an original piece from a brilliant artist. Be sure to check out our previous post on kidpasta’s “The Girls” artwork, which is simply beautiful and super hot. If you can’t tell, I’m a big kidpasta fan.

Glen E Friedman Profile

Think of the most iconic images of Run DMC, Black Flag, Minor Threat, Public Enemy and the Beastie Boys. Think of the gnarliest original photos of revolutionary skateboarding legends Jay Adams, Tony Alva or Stacy Peralta. You can pretty much bet that Glen E Friedman was the man behind the camera. Since the mid-70s, Friedman has been chronicling some of the most quintessential moments of underground and counterculture movements. Available at Skate Warehouse starting September 16th, this book is the perfect holiday gift for anyone interested in the history of skateboarding, punk rock or hip hop.

It’s funny how that picture has come to represent so much to so many people…”

Glen E Friedman

Friedman and longtime friend Ian MacKaye (Minor Threat, Fugazi) got together at the Dischord House just outside of Washington DC to discuss some of the iconic photos in Glen’s forthcoming book.

Glen E Friedman & Ian MacKaye Discuss “My Rules”

Come on. Did I bring lights? I brought one light bulb, yeah. I brought a bright light bulb so I didn’t have to use a flash. When you say special lighting it sounds like there’s a studio going on. I had a light bulb on the end of stick.”

Glen E Friedman My Rules Book Cover

Glen E Friedman’s My Rules serves as a veritable history book for these powerhouse countercultures — skateboarding, punk and hip-hop. From early on, Friedman was capturing pivotal and defining moments in music and street movements that were largely unknown or ignored. The energy and rebellion comes through in these famous and some never-before-seen photographs.

Street Dreams Movie Poster

Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, love it or hate it, here it is: Street Dreams, the full movie. There are 10 million street skateboarders in the U.S. alone. This is their story.

Uh, well, ok this is a story about one fictional up-and-coming skateboarder that looks uncannily like Paul Rodriguez on a rocky road to the Tampa Am. School sucks, cops suck, Rob Dyrdek pulls a Judas on him, his mom is crying, his Dad will disown him if he doesn’t get his shit together and his girlfriend is like “me or skateboarding.” You ever have one of those weeks?

Sure, it has its faults; the acting is poor, the storyline is predictable, the soundtrack is horrendous, the motion graphics at the end of the film don’t stylistically match any other aspect of the movie… stuff like that. Nevertheless, I totally liked the movie.”

- Michael Sieben for VICE

If this doesn’t make you want to buy a new skateboard… we don’t blame you. We forgot it existed, just found it again and thought it’d be a fun weekend post. Don’t mind all the commercials, every YouTube video is like that now anyway. Thanks to EchoBoom Sports for posting the full movie. Enjoy!

Street Dreams | Full Movie

Street Dreams is an American film, released in 2009, starring Paul Rodriguez, Rob Dyrdek, Ryan Dunn (RIP), Terry Kennedy, Ryan Sheckler, and a bunch of people that don’t ride skateboards. The cameos make it feel like an alternate intro to EA Skate 3, with the likes of Stevie Williams, Jim Greco, Brayden Szyfranski, Karl Watson, Josh Kalis, Mikey Taylor, Devine Calloway, Sean Malto, Erik Ellington and Tyler Bledsoe. It was directed by Chris Zamoscianyk, written in part by Rob Dyrdek as well as produced by Dyrdek, Jason Bergh and Sal Masekela.

Nike SB Lunar Janoski Restocked THUMBNAIL

Released in 2009, the Nike SB Zoom Janoski kicks have been amongst the most popular shoes in skateboarding history. Five years after the Janoski was released, it’s still in production, which is nearly unheard of with anyone’s debut signature shoe in the skate industry, let alone any sport. Does it even need a sequel?

Maybe not. When they upgraded the insole from Zoom to Lunar in the Nike SB Lunar Janoski we sold out of the Black/Whites almost immediately. Who needs a sequel when you can just upgrade the insole in one of the best shoes on the market?

Nike SB Lunar Janoskis Are Back!

The Nike SB Lunar Janoski Black/White has just been restocked at Skate Warehouse. Put ‘em on your feet and feel the difference!

With shapes and sizes to suit everyone’s needs, there is no reason your next board shouldn’t be a Polar.

Crispy New New Polar Pontus Alv

The legendary quality of Independent and the legacy of Andrew Reynolds combine to bring you the Stage-11 Gravity Cast Hollow Low trucks. The same aircraft grade aluminum hanger and cast baseplate found on your standard Independent trucks, plus a hollow kingpin and axle to keep the weight down. Can’t be beat!

Crispy New New Indy Reynolds TrucksCrispy New New F1 Streetburners

F1 Streetburners are a true flatspot resistant urethane, formulated to withstand any terrain. The AVE Lock-in’s feature a unique shape to help keep you “locked in” on rails and ledges. AVE backs’em, so you know they’re good.

The Andalé ABEC7 Bearings are a hot ABEC 7 bearing. Higher quality steel races, better quality grade balls and a superior surface finish. Single, non-contact removable rubber shield for easy cleaning and less friction. High speed nylon ball retainer for greater strength and speed. High impact testing.

*Nike SB x Rukus “Crawfish” Dunk Low IS SOLD OUT!

The creative collaborations continue for 2014 with the new Nike SB x Rukus “Crawfish” Dunk Low Quick Strikes. This scrumptious colorway, in cahoots with Rukus Board Shop out of Baton Rouge, Louisiana, is stuffed with flavorful details reminiscent of the iconic seafood boils for which the South is so renowned. The shoe’s designer and Rukus shop employee, Hunter Hulin explains:

You can throw colors on a shoe and make it look awesome, but I wanted it to mean something for our shop and for the state.”

Nike SB x Rukus “Crawfish” Dunk Lows

Nike SB x Rukus Dunk Low Crawfish Side

Hulin was thorough in his design. Silver patches on the toe box evoke a shiny cooking pot. Quilted yellow swatches on the heels look like corn on the cob. The maroon-speckled red upper resembles the shell of a boiled crustacean. The midsection features a newspaper print implying the makeshift tablecloth traditionally laid down before consuming the dish. Short of actually being able to crack these shoes open and feast on them, the Nike SB x Rukus “Crawfish” Dunk Lows live up to their nickname.

Nike SB x Rukus Dunk Low Crawfish Stack

Heel lining pods | Forefront hidden lacing | Internal forefoot construction | Re-engineered outsole | Suede upper | Injected phylon midsole | Sockliner cushioning | Action Red/Action Red-Metallic Silver | Style 504750-660

Nike SB x Rukus Dunk Low Crawfish Close

If you missed the exclusive in-store release at Rukus (and you probably did), you can still get your claws on the general release version from Skate Warehouse this Saturday, August 23rd, 2014 at 9am (PDT). Only about 10,000 of these cajun kicks were produced, so while you won’t get the custom Louisiana Fish Fry packaging of the first 500, they are still limited edition and very delicious. Order up!
