The best part about working in skateboarding is that you can hit up your favorite childhood brands and ask them for the new shit as soon as it comes out.

To try’em out Taylor Nawrocki from Politic and Billy Mcfeely from Passport went to midtown Manhattan in the dead of night to grind them down as much as possible.
