NHS-

“You’ve never heard of the Millennium Falcon? … It’s the ship that made the Kessel run in less than 12 parsecs.”Thats right fellow nerds! Get your tax money ready to make an investment and center piece for your game room. Special Edition Star Wars boards from Santa Cruz = Back to ramen noodles. Each Board, in the toy like blister packaging, has a laser etched number with a matching certificate of authenticity and a poster you can also get them with standard shrink wrap if you plan on using the force next time you skating with one of these, check out http://www.nhs-inc.com to get all the details.

Sanuk-

Your feet need a break, unless you’re wearing Sanuk footwear. Your feet will think they’re getting hugged every step you take. The sandals all share the same super soft insole, your feet will always feel like they’re being hugged weather your wearing flip-flops or New line of Vulcanized shoes. http://www.sanuk.com

Brixton-

When you look good you feel good, everyone knows that feeling. when you feel good your more likely to have ladies wanting to give you a hug.When you wear Brixton you will also have anyone that hugs you telling you that you feel good. So when everyone is hugging and feeling good everyone wins.So it’s your duty to make the world happy. The new line from Brixton has that timeless look and super high quality construction.

IVI eyewear-

Collaborations make the best things better, like Ice cream and apple pie or a stripper and a pole. so you know when Huff teams up with IVI it’s gonna be like eating apple pie alla mode while getting a lap dance. if you can think of something better I’d love you hear you attpemt.

Black Flys-

Razor sharp design. I think any stylist or knife fighter will appreciate these. Super slick design with the straight razor arms and dipped in gold for extra boss status.

Dakine-

The new Independent collab bag are about to be dropped… literally. depending on how much stuff you have to drop, depends on which bag you need, that is an independent decision you will have to make on your own, Dakine has you (your stuff) covered. The high quality construction you expect coupled with exclusive Indie trucks branded bags.

JSLV-

all were trying to do is just live right? well… Style is a must too, so when you just want style while you live, shred, relax or do what it is you do with JSLV threads.  - D. Shredian
