Zahbas in LALA — Stafhon, Coles & Zach for Alltimers x Vans

To celebrate the launch of the Alltimers x Vans Zahba shoe, Justin Stout (of Rascal video fame) whipped together this quick L.A. trip edit of Stafhon Boca, Coles Bailey and Zach Baker — shot between the bomb cyclone in the northeast and the gnarly January rain out in California. (The shoe itself feels like a legit version of the Vans Air Force Ones that anybody who visits Japan for the first time absolutely loses their shit over. Something for the cup sole heads.)

Also heard that John Choi was on some of these sessions, but that footage is being kept top secret until the time is right ❤️

RAT RATZ 7 Is Now Live

For the third winter in a row, we are proud to present the latest from Milan’s Rat Ratz crew.

What started as an endearing glimpse of the next generation of skaters coming up at Milano Centrale, quickly grew into something much bigger — the last Rat Ratz project is sitting at something like 800k+ YouTube views right now. (Not that it’s ever only about numbers, but that many eyes on a 15-minute homie edit without any help from big-name pros is incredible.)

Their latest finds them growing into their expanding powers on a skateboard — one-upping themselves at the spots that have remained staples throughout all their projects, and weaving in some travel as well — while truly shining at the train plaza that brought us all together in the first place.
