More than just a mere photo, this patch is worth a thousand words. On the familiar Levi’s Two Horse patch and next to patent granted date of May 20th, 1873 is an unfamiliar addition, the Nike Swoosh. Already seen through various leaked images, including one by Nike SB team member Omar Salazar, the patch heralds the secretive denim collaboration between Nike SB and Levi’s More information to come as the collection’s release date approaches. For now we can only speculate what the collaboration will encompass of. Maybe a pair of denim Nike SB Dunk? Or Nike Jeans??? Hope it not the latter note Adidas attempt at jean!!

Skateboard Bench Seats

American company deckstool has developed new furniture seating made from 100% reclaimed broken skateboards. The 48″ recycled skateboard deck benches feature a seat that use skateboard trucks for their construction. Besides being influenced by skate art and culture, deckstool’s designs are based upon how easily skateboards break during use. The company works with independent skate shops and parks in the USA and Canada to collect busted boards, giving these small skate-businesses cash back to supplement their income or  to raise money for skate park projects.

Full Bleed: NYC Skateboard Photography Book

Alex Corporan, who edited the book and shot—or lived—many of the book’s photos, guides us through the skaters, the rails, the drops that defined the City’s skateboard scene:
People ask me ‘where do you skate in New York?’ and I tell them ‘everywhere.’ They’re confused. ‘What do you mean—do you have a skatepark?’ and I say ‘New York City is our skatepark.’ That’s because when you skate in New York, there’s always a spot. Whenever you skate around the city, whether it’s a curb or ledge or bump, you’re always going to find something to skate on.
You don’t drive to skate spots here—you skate everywhere. Cruising around the city builds you up. You get hard, you know? Because you’re always pushing around, and after a while you grow into your own style, your own movement. You have to go through cars, through people. There’s so many obstacles—you have to adapt. And once you do, you can skate anywhere.” Some amazing pictures in here
