The 10-minute clip, filmed by Stefan Darque and edited by Al Hodgson, features riders James Griffiths, Jim Silver, Francis Peters, Joe Coward, Al Hodgson, Daryl Mersom, Edi Poolay and Billy Trick out in the streets of Bristol and Brighton.

Paying homage to his native Australia, Sammy Winter and HUF have combined on a small release this season which takes a focus on clean, classic designs across staple pieces built for skating. The pro-rider's capsule collection consists of long and short sleeve tees, caps and a pull over hoody, all of which stick to a monochrome colour palette and features custom Sammy Winter branding applied throughout as prints or embroidery. Rounding off the release, Sammy has gone to work on a pair of HUF Classic Hi's, which maintain their popular shape and Perfshock insole, but have been updated with a supple yet durable white leather upper and detailed with Winter's logo branding on the tongue, heel and insole.
The HUF x Sammy Winter capsule has landed in limited quantities in the UK now. You can pick up your favourite piece at Bored Of Southseaor Route One

Australian skate company Pass~Port have come together with Vans this season on a small collaborative collection consisting of shoes and a limited selection soft goods. In celebrating the release, the pair have also come together on a 7-minute clip featuring a mix of riders from both brands trying out some of the goods.
The collection centres around the classic Old Skool silhouette, which is offered in a dark chocolate brown and a clean off-white “marshmallow” colour way. The shoe maintains all the signature touches that has made it one of the most iconic skate silhouettes of all time, the Jazz stripe, toe and heel panels and the chunky sole unit. Pass~Port have added several premium touches to the staple style, mixing a durable hairy suede and equally as durable heavy canvas on the side panels and tongue, finished with a premium leather stripe branding. The aesthetics are completed with subtle embroidered branding on the tongue and heel, and a white Vans tab on the back of the sole. As you’d expect with every Vans style, functionality is assured with Duracap underlays in high wear areas, a built in, supportive heel counter, enhanced cushioning from Vans ‘Ultracush’ footbeds and signature grippy gum waffle tread.
Be sure to check the clip above filmed on the streets of Melbourne and Sydney, featuring Callum Paul and Nik Stipanovic, along with the rest of the Pass~Port team and Vans riders Jack Kirk, Ryan Wilson, George Kousoulis & Floyd Scott.
