Nike 6.0 x Todd Selby | Mason Aguirre

Rad Collector - Todd Selby x Nike 6.0 Mason Aguirre
Nike 6.0 has pushed past their previous watermark once again, this time in the form of their upcoming collaborative campaign for Fall/Holiday Apparel with photographer Todd Selby. Rather than just hiring Selby, the Nike 6.0 campaign will be meshed with his personal project theselby.com. The Selby Project is simply a collection of “interesting people in their creative spaces.” In this vein, Selby shot Garret Reynolds, Mason Aguirre, James Stewart, Nigel Sylvester, Michel Bourez, and Ben Horan in their hometowns dipped in 6.0 Fall/Holiday apparel. The works will appear in 6.0’s print ads as well as on a special mini-site dedicated to the project set to launch at nike6.com/clothes later this week. Above and after the jump is Aguirre by Selby in Duluth, Minnesota rocking select apparel pieces including the the Blocked Crew and the Road Dog Flannel. Stay tuned for more from this project this week.

Nike 6.0 Stinkween Bash at the Motel No Tell

30 July 2009, 11.42 | Posted in artist collaboration, lifestyle, Parties, Sneakers | No comments »


Nike 6.0 is going so big in SoCal right now. As we mentioned a few times before, they swooped in and took over a whole motel in downtown San Clemente and turned it into the Motel No Tell, an artist and athlete-inspired respite away from the bro brah craze of the OC’s action sports event packed summer. Last week during Agenda and the US Open of Surfing, they threw down a crazy jammy jam to release the Stinkween Braata with Madsteez and Stink. All stunts were pulled out: They had lasers, a Delorean and a $36,000 sublimation machine so people could do one of a kind sublimated tees on the spot. And since kids can’t drink booze, they even had a candy room so the young’uns could tweak out on suger! Roll the video.

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.

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

Rad Collector - 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.
