You may know Stan Smith the tennis player, but do you know Stan Smith the tennis player that secretly loved to shred? Adidas Skateboarding put together an amazing campaign video for the launch of the new Stan Smith model skate shoe. The man himself even makes an appearance to recount his early days on the board. Ever wondered where the Gonz really got all his tricks?
MAKR may be more well known for their leather and canvas accessories but coming from a background in design and skateboarding owner-designer Jason Gregory has put his skills from both together to produce a couple interesting deck shapes. The second shape having just released measures 8.4″ by 31.75″ with a cool Bondi Blue bottom, a little wide but good all-around shape with a bit of concave. Their other cruiser shape is a bit wider at 9″ and looks pretty damn fun in motion rolling on some big soft Drifters.
