After touring the whole west coast, the Vans team stopped by the Burbank shop. It was a heavy line-up, Anthony Van Engelen, Chima Ferguson, Gilbert Crockett, Daniel Lutheran, Kyle Walker, Elijah Berle, Rowan Zorilla, & Daan Van Der Linden, just to name ’em all. Thanks to everybody who came out!
There’s good news and then there’s bad news. Let’s start with the bad news first: Summer’s almost over… Yeah, school sucks but you know you wanna look good when you go back. Good news is we got you covered on the essentials for this Back To School season. Wondering what kicks to get? Check out these top 10 must haves on footwear!
We got a new Active Pro team rider in the ranks. What seemed like only a skate jam & pizza party turned out to be Kyle Walker‘s surprise pro party for Real Skateboards. They even got his parents to come way out from Oklahoma to surprise him in a gnarly lookin’ van with his pro model & pizza. Here are some photos from that epic day. Congrats Kyle!
The night before the opening day of TTC x CONS pop up shop. Stopped by to check out the space on 3rd & La Brea in L.A. after the enjoi premier that night. Active was the first retailer to release the collab shoes, so they invited us to come party with the crew & homies. Thanks Trash Talk & CONS!

Jeremy Leabres: Bursting onto the scene relatively unknown; Jeremy Leabres’s debut part in Emerica’s 2013 video ‘Made’ caught everyones attention and made him a name to watch in the world of street skating as well as landed him a spot on the exclusive Toy Machine team. Already friends with much of the RVCA team it was a natural fit to bring him on board. His laid back and down to earth attitude paired with the ability to skate big rails and gaps effortlessly continues to impress and pave the way for future street skaters.

It’s Taco Shoesday and that just means some more delicious tacos and awesome shoe review! Let’s get right down to it with the Adidas Busenitz Vulc Shoe that now sits on top of a vulcanized outsole with the same all suede upper. The shoe still retains the GEOFIT collar cushioning to keep your feet feeling comfy, with a PU Sockliner and heel stabilizer. The vector traction gives you the ultimate traction support when you’re out skating in the park or street, while the vulc outsole enhances board feel and gives you improved control. Overall it’s lightweight, durable and now with a shorter tongue makes this one clean and pretty amazing shoe. So don’t forget to pick up a pair of the Adidas Busenitz Vulc Shoe today before they’re all gone!
Taco Shoesday is upon us once again and those street tacos never look better on any other day than a Tuesday! Emerica has just released the Herman G6 and this shoe has all the shoe tech you’d want from a skate shoe, so let’s get right to it! First off the shoe was designed by pro skateboarder Bryan Herman and features a one solid piece panel covers the toe cup and Ollie area for durability and provides you with a better flick. The footbed features a high-rebound lightweight foam cushion to give you the added comfort, while the new three part midsole improves stability, performance as well as cushions the feet for those heavy impacts. A solid heel tread panel reduces effects of heel drag wear, making your shoes last longer. Then you have the side wall breathable mesh that helps keep your foot dry and cool. Overall this shoe was built for the skating community and has been designed specifically to keep the most worn down parts of the shoe more durable, strong and tough. The shoe is lightweight with enough padding in the footbed, tongue and collar to keep you skating through the night. The Emerica Herman G6 is the way to go if you’re trying to check out some new shoes to shred up!
