Nike 6.0 Stinkween Video


We showed you the ill Madsteez x Stink Nike 6.0 Stinkween Braata last week, now check out how this creation came to life in this video featuring both Mark Madsteez and Evan “Stink” Rossel and their collabed character creation “StinkWeen” which is itself “a fusion of Madsteez’s scrappy cartoon self-portrait “Weeneze” and a mischievous alter-ego doodle by Stink.” After you peep the vid, head over to Stinkween.com and enter your own Stinkween-inspired character to win a hand-painted portrait of yourself done by Madsteez himself. In a complete takeover, Madsteez will also be down in Huntington Beach, California this week painting three murals at Jack’s Surfboards just in time for both the US Open of Surfing and the shoe release on July 24 at both Jacks and the Motel NoTell.

Nike 6.0 has another rad limited edition kick coming down the pipe. This time it’s their new Braata model hooked up by the artist Mark Paul Deren (a.k.a. Madsteez) and his protege Evan “Stink” Rossell. Done up in an electric green, purple, yellow, and black with glow in the dark laces and a clear sole laid over custom artwork by Madsteez and Stink, the Stinkween Braata will hit in super limited quantities right in time of the US Open of Surfing. These joints will get you noticed. Jack’s Surfboards has just put them up for pre-order here. More images after the jump.

Mike Giles contributor Deck

mikesboard web copy 540x405 Mike Giles contributor Deck
Mike Giles has just posted an image of his new deck for the contributor organization we mentioned a couple days ago as part of the Mumble x Furni collab. If you don’t know about contributor, it’s a program to provide skateboards to any kid in Canada that cannot afford one. Although you might not associate Canada with poverty, there are evidently some people outside of the country’s generous social welfare system who need some help. In any case, skateboards for kids is a worthwhile cause anywhere in the world. For the project Giles re-interpreted his first pro deck, the Jeff Grosso Santa Cruz. Check out the original reference after the jump.
