Crossroads at ASR Opens

Crossroads, Jamie Thomas and Blackbox’s anti-tradeshow tradeshow opened today along side of its sister shows ASR and Class. Although there was a lot of speculation that the show wouldn’t be the same under ASR’s ownership, this pic should give you an idea of the caliber of heads on premises. Erik Ellington and Jim Greco with young buck hustler Apollo Cutts. Apollo was so gassed on these dudes that he walked them through how he envisioned each would hit the untouched spots that John Cardiel took him to on In The Cutts # 6. It was like watching the show in real life. We’ll have more from Crossroads and Class and ASR this week.

Here is Eric and Jim Shubin going through some of the brand’s featured new joints.
