Vans x Cro-Mags Collab

imagesRPRT worked with iconic NY Hardcore band Cro-Mags and their management to create a limited edition Vans Old Skool collaboration. The shoe features the logo and iconic mushroom cloud artwork from their album “Age of Quarrel” on the footbed. The shoes, limited to 125 production pairs, will NOT be available for sale but rather were created as promo for the band. These ultra rare shoes will be seen mainly in LA and NY where 3 shipments were made to Harley Flanagan, RPRT and Harley’s management.

This is the second punk collab that RPRT facilitated which includes a Circle Jerks x Primitive skate capsule collection.

Keegan Palmer Wins Bowl-A-Rama in Bondi

n6JVjj4Z_400x400Keegan Palmer is the first person to win the amateur contest at Bowl-A-Rama and then win the pro division in the next year. Taking the crown back for Australia (it has been 13 years since an Aussie won the contest), Keegan dominated the entire weekend placing first in qualifiers, first in semis and then taking the top title with a decisive first in the finals. Keegan used an array of back to back to back (and so on and so on) tricks to convince the judges that his lines were the most tech and diverse. 

Amazing work Keegan. Can’t wait to see you skate the rest of contest season including the upcoming Mano A Mano, Air + Style and Vans Park Series.
