Rodney Smith for Element | ESP

Rad Collector - Rodney Smith for Element Element Shapers Program
NYC skate godfather and Shut founder, Rodney Smith recently linked with his old friend Johnny Schillereff from Element to take part in the Element Shaper Program or ESP. The Shovelnose and Stinger are two of six Smith did for the project. RadCollector connected with him today for some words on the series.

There is a rapidly growing market for Longboards, alternative shapes and construction. This all means many different riding styles and disciplines for skaters worldwide. Johnny seemed intrigued in the position Shut is taking to meet these changes and thought to test the waters by doing a collaboration.

Read the whole conversation and check out some more pics after the jump. Rodney Smith for Element ESP is available now at select Element dealers.

Rad Collector - Vans x Antihero Trujillo TNT 4
The TNT is a love/hate shoe for some Vans purists due to it’s bulky size but for those who skate it, it’s a favorite kick for sure. True to that, not everyone will love this Antihero TNT 4 collabo. Coming in both grey/white and chocolate/black and featuring Antihero branding, it looks pretty buttery to us. Via Bee Magazine.
