Every issue, we give Bristol skateboarding institution fifty fifty their own spot in Trap. After running the scene in one of Europe’s most vibrant skate cities for 15 long years now, it’s fair to say that the guys at fifty fifty know their shit, so there’s no one better than them to fill us in on the sickest brands currently bossing the skate scene.
Check the printed mag for more from fifty fifty, and check their dope-ass new webstore here.
Skater-owned independent Skulls was established in Barcelona and has now relocated to Brooklyn, NYC .The brand focuses on the 5-panel camp cap, which seems to be growing in popularity at a quick pace, although it’s always been our favourite style of cap!
Skulls produces a wide array of designs, but is renowned for all-over prints as seen on the ‘Mia’ , ‘Un Peru’ and ‘Postage’ this season. The caps are all handmade in the USA and are produced in small runs, so they never stay on the shelves for long.
Still a relative newcomer, Converse Skateboarding is now on its second instalment. The brand already has pro models from heavy hitters Anthony Pappalardlo , Kenny Anderson and Nick Trappasso, as well as bunch of reworked classics for the team shoes.
The ‘Elm’, is a new introduction to the range, and is a simple but very effective price-point shoe. Featured here is the smoke grey version. With the line expanding every season, we expect big things from Converse.
